Good news everyone!

The Cowichan Bowmen Archery Club will begin opening on June 16, 2020. The opening will be subject to the rules and guidelines as stated in the following document which can be downloaded by clicking here.

It is important for all members to read the document in it's entirety and complete the waiver form to gain access to the club grounds. It's important to note that all the rules, orders, and guidelines are subject to change without notice due to the fluid nature of this pandemic and the requirements that need to be met to help keep our members safe. We will always do our best to keep you updated in a timely manner as to any changes in our policies and the club's operations.

We know it's been a while coming and appreciate all our members patience while we make sure that everything was in place to have a successful reopening. Besides being the right time to open we also had the club grounds to prepare, had meetings to discuss the status of the club, and took the time to make sure how we can best open in a safe manner while following BC Archery and BC Provincial Government orders and guidelines.
