General Meeting Online Using Zoom January 11, 2022

Hello Bowmen Members,

Next Tuesday at 7:30pm we will be having the first General Meeting of 2022. Here is the link to download the January 11, 2022 Meeting Agenda which is being held online using Zoom. The Zoom link will be emailed prior to the start of the meeting.

It's been an interesting start to the New Year with Covid ramping and the snow falling but such is our current world. We do still have things going on and hopefully events to plan for... all be it in the future.

To best support the current public health orders, this meeting as already mentioned will be virtual using the Zoom platform. We are hoping as many as possible can log in and join. Please make sure you are on the mailing list to receive the Zoom link by joining the list using the "Sign up for Club News" form at the botton of the page at CowichanBowmen.com

JOP and Family Nights are currently on hold but we are going to still proceed with the Mail Match in a very socially distanced fashion.

Renewal Memberships are now due and we will be proceeding with the changing of the locks and combinations on the 15th.

We also are now requiring all Members to have and display the Membership Card for 2022.

As you can see, we have lots going on and continue to need the support of our Members. Please "Aim to get involved" and support our Club.

Thanks from all of the Bowmen Directors

Volunteers Needed For Directors Positions

Update January 4, 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

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.

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
Cowichan Bowmen - Hunting Director
