• Hi all
    As President of GSA it is time for me to make a decision as to what we will be doing in relation to our outdoor club grounds. There has been a directive from the commissioner of SAPOL that all indoor sporting venues are to close and all outdoor venues associated with them. I understand this is somewhat open to interpretation, but I feel the time has come to close the gates until further notice.
    This being said the Iron Arrow shoot scheduled for this coming Saturday will be postponed. Hopefully we will be able to run it later in the year.
    Please stay safe look after each other, shoot when you can and stay in touch.

    Yours in Archery

About Us

The club dates from about the early 1980s and has operated out of various locations.

The founding members were Graeme & Lorraine McVitty, David Percy and in particular, our Life Members Rob and Helen Fairweather. These pioneers started and ran an archery club through some pretty tough times and strong opposition to the idea of having an archery club in Strathalbyn.

The club has had several names over the years including the Strathalbyn District Archers and was originally affiliated with the Australian Bowhunters Association. Today we are officially Strathalbyn Target Archers Incorporated trading as Great Southern Archers, and are affiliated with Archery South Australia and Archery Australia.
