I hope everyone is having a great summer. A lot of our members have done very well at tournaments locally and nationally. I know it has been a very busy summer for me.
Our hosted shoots have been fairly well attended this year. The last Hit and Miss tournament we hosted broke the record for the most shooters in attendance at 32!
I just wanted to let everyone know that the up coming meeting Wednesday August 12th is the nominations for Officers and Executive board. There are a number of position open for election. There is the Vice President, two Director positions and the Treasurer position needing to be filled. Please come to the meeting or send your nomination suggestions to any of the current Executive Board members.
We are still in need of a tournament director. This position maintains the scores for the club shoots to determine the club champions. Helps in choosing shoot dates and maintains the clubs shooting schedule. Please let me know if you have any interest, I will be glad to talk to you.
Field Archery at Its Best
Rochester Bow Hunters (RBH) started in 1952 by local sportsman to provide an area to practice and enjoy the sport of archery. Their first property was a leased piece of land on the Barge Canal. A field course was laid out and in 1953 club officers where elected. Through the early years the club evolved and joined other archery clubs to form the Five Nations. In 1960 RBH became a non-profit corporation allowing the club to purchase, in 1967, the present home of RBH. The club held many shoots and continues to hold Field shoots on a regular schedule. The course is laid out in a wooded area of the property, we have 28 targets set out from 80 yds down to 20 ft. With the break up of the Five Nations RBH has joined the Western NY Field Archers and Bowhunters. This gives members of RBH more shooting opportunities and better competition against Archers of the Buffalo and Niagara Falls areas. Our membership fees are modest. Join us for the fun and come improve your skills as well.
Rochester Bow Hunters is a non-profit Archery Club
Rochester Bow Hunters (RBH) is a non-profit archery club and while RBH has been around since 1952 we were not incorporated until 1960. This was done so RBH club could purchase the property we now own. The land was purchased in 1967 and is 20+ acres. The field course is set in the wooded area of the property, with two full 14 target ranges. Future plans and hopes are for more tournaments to be held at our club.
