The Club's Covid-19 Update...Important!

Must Read Information For All Club Members

April 3, 2020

Will the clubhouse and club grounds stay open?

At this time the clubhouse and grounds will remain open, ONLY,  if proper social distancing, frequent hand washing and sanitizing of all touched surfaces is completed by every member. If there are reports of anyone not sanitizing touched surfaces or respecting the social distancing requirements laid out by the B.C. Ministry of Health and the Provincial Health Officer, the clubhouse and gate locks will be changed and the premises will be closed immediately.

What is happening with future events and club functions?

Until further notice, ALL Cowichan Bowmen events and functions are CANCELLED. This means any 3D, target tournament, JOP, family night, and special events.

Could the club house and grounds eventually close?

Yes, if the B.C. Ministry of Health and the Provincial Health Officer shuts down the use of parks and/or recreational facilities, the clubhouse and grounds will immediately close with locks being changed. This is an ongoing situation and other information that comes to light as a result of this outbreak as it develops may result in immediate shut down of all club facilities without notification, though we will do our best to keep you informed.

Is the clubhouse clean?

We have purchased extra sanitizing materials to ensure the clubhouse is sanitized. The continuation of sanitation is the responsibility of every member who uses the club's grounds and facilities. Hand sanitizer and wipes are provided within the clubhouse.
