Attached are the motions that will be discussed at the AGM.  Your voice is important to guide these discussions and I encourage you all to attend.  The decisions made at the AGM, by the Members in attendance to vote, are final.  Be part of the process.
In addition to the motions, we will also be filling all of the Director positions, several of which will be vacant.  Descriptions of the responsibilities of the Director roles are located on our Website.  Please take a look, if you are interested.

Positions we know will be vacant include - President, Vice-President, Hunting Director, Target Director, and Secretary.  The remaining Director positions, including 3D, Kitchen, JOP, Family Night, Communication, Special Events, Membership, Director-at-Large, and Treasure will be acclaimed by the current Director, unless a Nomination from the floor and a Vote is required.

Thank you and I look forward to seeing as many of you as possible on November 28th.

January 30th,2023 Safari 2023 Recap

The 2023 Safari Shoot was a "wild" success!!

Thank you to all who attended our first 3D shoot of the year!!

Thank you to everyone who attended!!

This year's event was a great success and we are thrilled at seeing all of the people back out again.  It's been a long time since things looked something close to "normal" and it was good to see our community back out and at it again.

A big round of thanks to our 3D director Mike and his team of tireless volunteers who helped set up the event.   As always, an event like this takes time and effort to set up so a big thanks to everyone who helped out.   We look forward to seeing you all at the next shoot!

Harvest Moon 3D Shoot
Everyone Welcome!


June 6, 2022

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.
