Thank you Angi Sullivan


Angi Sullivan, PAA Tournament Coordinator, has announced her retirement and it is with mixed emotions that we say “Farewell”. As many of you know, Angi has been running all of the tournaments at Papago for many years and there is no doubt that she will be missed as ‘the one in charge’. Her enthusiasm, humor and knowledge of the sport of archery has been appreciated more than words could ever express.  She has seen so many youth through their first tournaments and ALWAYS made it memorable and enjoyable for the archers and their families. We are so grateful and honored to have had Angi as our tournament coordinator and truly look forward to having her join us now at the shooting line as our fellow archer.

On behalf of the entire Papago Archery Association Board, club members and archery community, we want to Thank You, Angi, for your many years of service!

We wish you the best for all of your future endeavors!
