“I have always enjoyed archery, but in about 1990, my friend Gene Curry introduced me to tournament archery and I have been hooked ever since.”
Maurice enjoys meeting new people and seeing all of his old friends as he travels to different tournaments. His advice to new archers is “Always be willing to listen, because we can all learn new things!”
