Honoring Club Member – Lester Chin

(Left front: Derek Harju, Kevin Ikegami.
Left back: Kristy Wapniarski, Kelsey Lard, Lester Chin, Cynthia Leedom & David Smith – not pictured Allen Nearing)

The PAA Board of Directors had the privilege of presenting, club member, Lester Chin with an award for his valuable contributions and generosity over the years. Lester began his archery journey, with Papago, when  he participated in the Beginners Archery Course almost 5 years ago. After completing the course, Lester joined the Papago Archery Club as a recreational archer. Since then, Lester has completed his Level 3 Coaching Certification and Judges Certification.  He is now one of our regular coaches for our Intro to Archery and Beginners Archery Course, hosted at the range. In addition, Lester can be found in the official red shirt & khakis uniform, as judge, at many of the Arizona tournaments when he is not competing himself.

Anyone that has had the good fortune of shooting at the Papago range, whether they are a member or not, has had the pleasure of meeting Lester. He is always there to lend a helping hand no matter what he is in the middle of doing. He takes the time to organize fun shoots for the club, offer assistance with setting up or breaking down, he’s always part of the field crew during the Papago 900 shoots and if there is ever a range project that needs volunteers…Lester is there. He is truly the best ambassador for Papago Archery that anyone could ever ask for.

Many, if not all, of our club members have their own special stories and memories that include Lester. He has been such an integral part of the PAA community. We are all so grateful to have him as part of the club and honored to call him our friend.

Thank you, Lester, for all of  the hours of service that you have given. It is because of your example, encouragement and positive energy that Papago has been able to flourish into the club we see today. We can’t imagine a Saturday or Sunday morning at the range without seeing your smiling face!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

Do you have a special memory or message that you’d like to share about or with Lester? Please post a comment below.
