Hello Bowmen Members,

The Hell Hole is done for the year. I want to send out my special thanks to Mike, Barry, and Lindsay for building an exceptional course, loved by all that shot in the mud, rain, and even some sunshine. Amanda and her team of awesome girls keeping the kitchen ready to roll, and Sara for building a fantastic prize table for all to enjoy. All of the other volunteers who put in their time to help out also deserve a hand - nice job, everyone.

Attendance at the shoot was, well, poor. Less than half what we were expecting each day. The rain made a huge impact - but only on our local shooters. Shooters from Port Alberni, Victoria, Parksville, Cambell River, Vancouver, Burnaby, Courtenay, and two from Calgary, Alberta made up over 85% of attendees. Not sure what that means, but it certainly was notable.

Congratulations to Robert Berry on the $122.50 50/50 win on Saturday and Robert Cowley on the $92.00 50/50 win on Sunday.

We also have a list of prizes yet to be claimed. If you have the following ticket #'s get in touch with me at president@cowichanbowmen.com and I'll arrange whatever needs arranging.

Ticket holders have until June 30th to contact us and after that - the prizes will be set aside for the Harvest Moon shoot in the fall.

Ticket # 3024060 - Bowtech hat
Ticket # 3024070 - Elk Call Kit
Ticket # 3024027 - Shockey T-shirt
Ticket # 3024092 - Deer Call Kit
Ticket # 3024082 - small First Aid Kit
Ticket # 3024103 - Gloves
Ticket # 3024057 - Lee Leather Tablet Holder
Ticket # 3024033 - Easton Arrow Lube
Ticket # 3024036 - Target Bag
Ticket # 3024091 - Yeti hat
Ticket # 3024104 - Large First Aid Kit

Thanks, everyone for coming and we will hopefully see you again next year or maybe in the fall.

Volunteers Needed For Directors Positions

Update April 11, 2022 - We are still in need of volunteers to fill director positions so please consider volunteering. Thanks!

Hello Bowmen Members,

As most of you are aware, our Annual General Meeting was held at the end of November. Plans for the coming year and the election of our new Directors were at the forefront.

Unfortunately, we have several Director positions that are currently double-booked requiring several Directors to hold more than one portfolio but more significantly our Director of 3D position is now vacant.

Our first scheduled 3D shoot is the Safari Shoot scheduled for January 30th, 2022. Without the coordination of a Director to guide the planning, holding this shoot may not be possible.

If anyone is interested in volunteering as a Director, please reach out to either myself or Richard Kennett and let us know.

We have the talent to move the Club out of the pandemic and back into action, but continued support will be essential.

Thanks for your support,
Darcy Dean
President & Target Director

No Shooting Broadheads or Crossbows on Butts

A reminder that broadhead arrows and/or crossbows are to be used in the sandpit only and are not to be used on the target or field butts as they wreck the butts.
