Hoorah - we are open for business again - see 'Bookings' to book your place on the outside range

SEE NEW BOOKING & EVENTS PAGE IN THE MENU

IMPORTANT REMINDER
 
Would junior members please remember, when booking a lane, that only one parent (or guardian) can - and must - be in attendance throughout the session. If that 'parent' is not an Archery GB member themselves, you'll need to ensure you only book a lane when you can see other lanes have been booked. There must always be another, senior archer in attendance when you're shooting, as well as your parent / guardian.

We are, at last, back shooting - albeit in a different way to which we're used to!
 
Just to confirm that we have previously advised you that the current membership year will be extended beyond 31st May.
 
Once we're in a position to advise when the new membership year starts, we'll let you know. Sheila will then be inviting you to renew via her usual emails.

End of an Era

After many years as Chairman of Bowbrook Archers, the 2019 AGM saw Sam Dixon retire from the role. Sam has been a stalwart of the club from the time there were only about 20 members - now it’s more like 200!

 

Gentleman Farmer Sam has seen many changes as a member and as chairman, and has many an interesting tale to tell about those times. He has given a lot to the club and over his tenure as chairman, has given it a respectability that has to be admired. Of course it takes more than one person to do this, and with a band of like-minded dedicated volunteers, he has made Bowbrook what it is today.

 

I call him ‘Gentle’man Farmer Sam, because that is what he is. His gentle and easy approach speaking to his reports at meetings and his thoughtful and sensible mediations concerning club matters are a testament to his character. Work on the farm is constant and always demanding, and, along with bringing up his family, his acts of selfless kindness of loaning his property, fields and time at Attingham’s Home Farm for the benefit of the club and its members were all given freely - without reward or praise expected.

 

I for one will miss those great shoots that were held on his field at Attingham Park and the interest taken by the visitors to our sport. I don’t suppose that many people realise what it took to get that field ready for, say, our Heritage Shoot, and then get it in a state ready for his cattle to use again after - certainly weeks either side of the shoot.

 

Along with the ‘Birthday’ bash shoot that Sam holds on Home Farm each year, the use of his various farm equipment, the use of Home Farm Cafe for meetings, to the delicious cakes his wife makes - it’s no wonder that a proposal from the floor at the AGM, that he was unanimously made an Honorary Member of Bowbrook Archers, and thankfully, voted onto the committee for the Club to still benefit from his wisdom, experience and contributions at future meetings.

 

Gentleman Farmer, Sam Dixon, Home Farm, Attingham Park, THANK YOU - a truly genuine person you are ever likely to meet - you will be an extremely hard act to follow. – D. Thornton
