It's Winter League Field Shoot time once again.

Time:   Sunday mornings--Practice 9:00 am -- first arrow 10:00 ish 
( so don't get there at the last minute. )
Cost:   Free:
Dates: October 22nd & 29th
            November 5th, 12th & 26th
Dates for shoots in the new year will be decided near, or in the beginning, of January.
 
Winter League Field Shoots are held on our 16 target field course, with three arrows per target. This is a fun event and is not a full World Archery 24 target round, and as such, it is usually wound up by noon. You do not have to post your scores, but if you do post your scores, you have a chance at bragging rights to, Best Single Score, Best out of Three Scores, Best out of Six Scores, and Best Total over the season. There will most likely be 10 shoots this season (depending on alignment with other events) running from October through March ( no shoots in December ). The shoots go rain, shine, wind, or snow which is part of the fun, so please wear appropriate clothing. If you are a member of the Cowichan Bowmen or any other established archery club, come on out for some shooting, camaraderie, and fun. See you there.

The Cowichan Bowmen Family Fun Day was well attended with everyone having a great time. It was a nice day in the sun shooting Clout with Flu-Flu arrows and also trying the awkward shots at the indoor 3D. Kids and adults alike, had a fun day, here are a few pictures.

 It was a great day for the Bowmen 900 and fundraiser for Bryan Harper. The weather was perfect for the 15 or so participants that enjoyed a great day of shooting, fun and camaraderie. Thank you to all the people that came out to support Bryan, and good luck to Bryan as he competes in the 2017 World Archery 3D championships being hosted in Robion France between the 19th and 24th September.

Once again, it was another great Hell Hole shoot with great weather and great people. I would like to thank all the volunteers that turned out over the last few weeks, whom without, this event would have not been possible. I would also like to thank the Venturers for coming in to help with parking and the bar-b-que. The course was excellent with lots of angled shots and some deceptive ones too, and I heard a lot of positive feedback from shooters. Kudos to all who worked hard to make this shoot a success!
