Relocation gives Buffalo Bowmen new lease of life

TARGET SECURED: The Buffalo Bowmen have found a new place to hold their archery competitions after a six month hunt for a new home ended with Alpine Community Plantations offering the club some land on the outskirts of the Myrtleford township. Pictured here are (from left) Buffalo Bowmen members Leah Rogers Matt Smith, Bree Drummond and vice president Michael Rogers at the entrance to the new course.

THE Buffalo Bowmen have found a new home after the Alpine Community Plantations leased them some land on the outskirts of Myrtleford.

The local archers will now utilise their new patch of land off Nil Gully North Road after spending the last six months since starting back up on a property in Mudgegonga.

That property belonged to Buffalo Bowmen vice president Michael Rogers who was happy to help the club out, however, he is pleased that the club was able to find a more suitable site.

“It’s great to have found a new home, everyone is rapt about it and looking forward to being able to do more shooting now, so thanks to Alpine Community Plantations,” Rogers said.

Last Sunday many of the club’s members tried out the new 20 target course with their Christmas shoot and Rogers said it got the tick of approval from all those shooters present.

“It’s quite a challenging course; there is a lot of uphill and downhill shots, it has some of the older guys a bit worried but overall everyone thinks it’s great,” he said.
