Hello Everyone,

Here is the latest news and upcoming events for Victoria Bowmen:

Indoor Shooting

We just got the go-ahead from Saanich Commonwealth Place and our indoor season starts this Sunday, September 27. We will be shooting from 12:30 from 3:30. Usually this would be JOP but JOP cannot be organized in time for this Sunday so the whole time slot will be open to the club. 

Starting October 4th and for the rest of 2020 our schedule will be: 

    • 12:30 – 2PM JOP
    • 2:PM – 3:30 – Victoria Bowmen member shooting.
    • Members must be cognizant of the VB ‘Return to Play Plan’, which was developed in cooperation with Saanich Recreation, BCAA and Via Sport BC, please have a look at the document and practice what it outlines whenever you are ‘on the range’ – In short, if you are not willing to follow these guidelines, please stay home!
  • We are awaiting on Saanich Recreation concerning Thursday nights
