2020 September Tournament Cancellation

Unfortunately we’ve had to take the decision to cancel the tournaments planned for September 12th & 13th.

All archers who have entered now have the choice to either take a refund or roll over entries to our tournaments in May 2021.

Please email us at tournaments@bowmenofglen.org with your original order number and let us know which you would prefer. Please get in touch by the 29th August.

Sorry that we’re not able to go ahead but we look forward to welcoming you back in 2021.

Beginners Course Updates

We now expect the August beginners course to go ahead with some adjustments for social distancing – as this has included lowering the number of people taking the course this one is now sold out.

We’ve therefore added an extra course on September 5th & 6th – if you wish to book spaces please do so here.

Return to Shooting

We will be returning to shooting from Sunday 17th May in line with the AGB guidelines that were published late on Wednesday.

All members will receive an email with details of how to proceed as the ground won’t be generally open – we’ll be open to a maximum of 10 archers at a time and advanced booking will be required.

Field Closure

Following recent announcements and guidance from Archery GB and the Government the committee feel compelled to follow this advice and suspend shooting at the club until further notice. This position must be adhered to by all Club Members. In the meantime we will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates if the position changes.

Email from Archery GB below stating the current status:

Dear Archery Family,

In light of the government’s announcement regarding Coronavirus, Archery GB has reviewed the latest guidance provided and has made the difficult decision to postpone all archery activity across the UK for the foreseeable future, in order to reduce all non-essential contact with others. It was not an easy decision to make but our priority is the health and safety of our members, participants, volunteers and staff.
