Important: AGM November 23, 2021

Hello Bowmen Members,

This is a reminder our Annual General Meeting is coming up next week on November 23rd at 7:30 pm. We will be having a short General Meeting just prior, starting at 7:00 PM.

We still have several Director positions vacant - including Kitchen, Secretary, and 3D Directors. Our Treasurer Director has one nomination - Sara G. Our Membership Director has one nomination - Amanda B.

It is vital to fill these Director positions in order to be in a position to offer the best for our Members during the 2022 year. If you are able to lend a hand - please do.

Here are links to download the November 23, 2021 AGM Agenda, February 23, 2021 AGM Minutes for 2020, and the minutes from the October 5th, 2021 General Meeting.

Here's hoping for a great turnout to guide our Club through next year and the recovery from the pandemic.

Thanks,
Darcy Dean
President - Cowichan Bowmen

Hunting Director Update - Where Are the Stories?

Good day Cowichan Bowmen,

I hope everyone is enjoying the club now that it is opening up more and more! Family Nights are growing every week as is the JOP Program! Great to both see and hear. And this is despite the fact it is HUNTING season!

Being the Hunting Director I was hoping to hear about epic hunts that lasted days over mountains and through raging rivers.... BUT I have not received a single photo story, nothing! No photo's, nothing! I ask "WHAT'S UP" At the last meeting I motioned we add another tier on the Big Buck Trophy, which was approved, and I have had (thank-you Richard Kennett) done. So send me your photos and stories, we will print some of the stories, we will post some on the Hunters Board in the club house and post on the hunters corner of the web site, so smile in those photos. Most importantly your name is in for a chance to win the BIG BUCK TROPHY. Someone has something by now? quit holding out!!!

Please and thank-you!

Richard Browning

November 2021 Annual General Meeting

Hello Bowmen Members,

We are one month out from our Annual General Meeting scheduled for November 23, 2021 at 7:30 pm at the Clubhouse.

We will be having an abbreviated general meeting just prior at 7:00.

Click here to download the agenda for the AGM, and a copy of the minutes from last year will be forwarded by email closer to the date to allow time for review prior to the AGM.

We are hoping for a great turnout to plan for the year ahead and the move away from the current restrictions – if all goes according to plan.

I hope to see as many of you as possible turn out and if you are interested in holding one of the Director positions or know someone who is – please reach out and let us know.

Thanks,

Darcy Dean
President
Cowichan Bowmen Archery Club

Huge Shout Out To Those Who Braved The Heat

Huge shout out to all those brave wood-splitting worriers that came out on Sunday June 27 to brave the heat before it became too much. We have more than enough split to fill the shed and keep us ahead of the game for the winter chills.

If anyone has an extra 15 minutes either before shooting or afterward - if you could lend a hand to stack the piles away it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks everyone for some great work.

I also hear rumours of some plans for a 3D shoot in the near future. We will need more of these work parties to get cleaned up enough to make this happen.

Your help is always appreciated and surely needed.

Thank-you

Club Work Party. We Need Your Help!

As we move closer to hopefully re-opening the Club, the list of things that needs doing keeps getting longer. We are hoping the rules change on the next update and we are able to have a Work Party on Sunday, June 27th starting at 9:00 AM.

We need to clean up the property, cut a ton of firewood, layout the target field, and just generally dust off the Club. We are also still hoping for a 3D shoot in the fall. Time to start working on that as well.

We need your help!

We are also in the process of creating Membership Cards that will be handed out. Once created and issued these cards will be required to be with all Members when at the Club.

Stay safe and happy shooting. Hope to see a good turnout for the Work Party on Sunday, June 27th at 9:00 AM.

Thank-you for your support 🙂
