Our next club meeting will be held on May 27 at 8 p.m.

The NASP club has completed their scheduled weekly practice, so the club is open for member use throughout the week.

The annual summer 3D shoots will resume as per schedule starting in May. Our first shoot of the season will be on Sunday, May 17 from 8 to 2. Set up will be the Friday night before on May 15 at 5:30.

There will be two workdays to address the 3D course before the shoot. We will be clearing paths of any remaining debris, blowing leaves, weed whacking, and putting out the stakes. If you would like to offer some input on course changes, now would be the time. The first work night will be Wednesday, May 6 at 5:30 and the other will be Sunday May 10 at 8 a.m. Please bring tools if you can!

 We understand many are cautious during these times. However, we’re still optimistic and really hoping for a strong turnout this 3D season. Our 3d will continue on the third Sunday of each month throughout the summer. The first league shoots will begin in June with BVA and Millvale. Hope to see you soon!

Our next club meeting will be held on April 29 at 8 p.m.

The Fencing club and NASP program have concluded their winter use of the archery club. The indoor range is now open all week for anyone who needs to complete their Indoor 600 scores for the season. April marks the end of indoor season, so please get your scores caught up as soon as possible.

 Will has conformed with the local authorities that our 3D shoots for the season are still permissible during this time as an outdoor activity. For those of you feeling cooped up during the quarantine, this will be a welcome opportunity to get out into the fresh air and stretch your legs while making sure your bow is dialed in for turkey season and summer 3d!

The course set-up workday scheduled for April 4 at 8:00 a.m. is still on, and any help is appreciated to set the stakes for the coming shoots. So far there aren’t any trees down or major issues with the roads or bridges. For anyone able, please come help! We’ll be getting the paths cleared of any remaining debris and the stakes put out. If you would like to offer some input on course changes, now would be the time. Please bring whatever tools you might have, just in case! If rained out on Saturday, we will be working on Sunday April 5.

Our first 3D shoot of the year will be on April 19 from 8-2. Set up will be the Friday night before on April 17 at 5:30 p.m. We’re really hoping for a strong turnout this 3D season, as the last few years have not been what we’d hoped. Thank you all for coming out so far, and we hope to see you all this year!

February 2020 Newsletter

Our next club meeting will be held on March 25 at 8 p.m.

 The Fencing club will continue using the indoor range through March. The Riverside NASP program is still using the clubs on Monday and Thursday nights. Please make arrangements to shoot earlier in the day or on an alternative night. Members will continue to shoot together on Wednesdays for the indoor 600 League.

 The schedule is set for the 2020 3D League season, and our first shoot will be April 19. The course is rough from the winter, and the first workday will be Saturday, March 21 or Sunday, March 22 if the weather doesn’t cooperate. The second workday will be Saturday, April 4 with the following Sunday reserved for weather as well. We will be meeting at 8 a.m. and many hands make for light work! If you can, please bring leaf blowers, chainsaws, pruners, etc. to help clear the course of logs, leaves, and debris. The trails and lanes will need cleared and prepped for the 3d season, and some of the front range and long range bale targets will need rearranged for the summer.

 The club is due for some improvements for the year, including work on the parking lot and perhaps more gravel. Some of the 3d targets are due for new cores and a few of the outdoor targets could use new faces. To help offset these costs a raffle was discussed, so any donations would be highly appreciated! If any alternatives or additional options are available, please contact the club officers or attend the next workday or meeting night. As always, 3d attendance is always appreciated and this helps greatly towards covering these costs through the year and keeping the club going strong! Thank you all for your support and we look forward to seeing you out there!

The next club meeting will be on October 30 at 8 p.m.

 The Fencing club will begin using the nights on Tuesdays again starting in October and running through March. The Riverside NASP program will be using the clubs on Monday and Thursday nights as well. Please make arrangements to shoot earlier in the day or on an alternative night. Members will continue to shoot together on Wednesdays starting in January for the indoor 600 league and new shooters are welcome.

Thank you everyone that had participated in the local 3d League on behalf of CVB; CVB has officially won the 2019 3D Archery League! It was thanks to the exceptional member turn out and perseverance- congratulations, everyone!

On Sunday, October 6 there will be a club workday to start collecting wood for the winter. The more folks that help show up, the smoother and faster it will go with more wood available. We will be heading over the hill to cut wood, and hopefully have enough folks to help split and stack. Members will be meeting at 9 a.m. to begin. If you can help please come, as many hands make for light work!

During hunting season the club grounds are open for hunting to currently registered members. Please remember to sign into the club house when hunting and indicate the time of arrival. There is no fee for hunting the grounds if the lights aren’t used. This is a safety and liability concern.

Good luck out there this hunting season, everyone!!

We hope to see as many shooters as possible, and this is a great opportunity to get ready for hunting season in just a few short weeks- and we’re hoping for a strong turnout for CVB in the league!


On Saturday, September 28 CVB will be hosting Fombell FairyFest, a family-friendly fundraiser geared towards enjoying creativity and the outdoors with several vendors set up in the clubhouse, primitive skills demonstration by Jon Houk, and 10-target “Fantasy 3D shoot” geared towards new and traditional archers.
