Arrowsmith Archers – May 2016
Archery has been busy this past month. We have purchased about half of the epafoam for the new shooting wall. We hope to purchase the second half early in the new year and then rebuild the indoor wall at the Nanoose Bay Pentecostal Camp as well as build some new out door butts with the salvaged epafoam from the existing wall.
Our indoor shooting will be coming to an end on June 15th, archers who have purchased a key to the Henry Range will be able to continue shooting through out the summer on the new outdoor archery range. A work party is in the planning stages to get this new range ready for our outdoor target shooters.
We will be having an orientation and fun shoot at the Dorman range on Saturday May 7th. This shoot will be a great way to introduce those who have never shot the bag course to the Dorman Range.
The 2015/2016 indoor target season was a very successful one for our club. Many new faces and familiar friends have joined us this year.
And many of our archers were medal winners at different events. Aiden Hare represented our zone at the BC Winter games and he brought home a silver and a gold medal! 5 of our archers attended the Canadian’s and won 1 gold and 1 bronze medal.
5 of our archers went to the BC’s in Armstrong, BC and all 5 won medals – 3 gold, 1 silver and 1 bronze! And most recently 3 of our junior archers attended the BC JOP at the Cowichan Bowmen Club and all 3 brought back medals – 2 gold and 1 silver!
Way to go everyone. We are so very proud of our club!
