No archery! The whole field is being used for a Rugby Open Day, with rugby coaching and the 6 Nations Rugby being shown on a big screen.
Remember the club AGM is on Monday 27th at 8pm, and indoor archery on the 28th from 6:30pm, both at Club Langley.
Tuesday Evenings Indoor
From 4th October 2016 to 28th March 2017
This is in the banqueting hall at Club Langley, the other side of the barriers in Hawksbrook Lane. We don't usually have to move the tables out of the way, but we have to avoid damaging the glitter balls and chandeliers.
Arrive at 6:30pm to get the backstop netting, targets and lights out of the cupboard and set up ready to start at 7pm. First 2 weeks in each month are Portsmouth (20 yards) for the postal league. Other weeks are WA 18 meter or Worcester. There are 3 straw bosses and one foam Danage for compound archers. Limited to 16 archers as there is not a lot of space behind the shooting line. Contact Mark to book a space.
2017 CPB 45th Open Tournament
Record Status & Rose Award
Sunday 23rd April 2017
We know it's early, but we've booked the ground and ArcheryGB have given us record status approval, so we just need 150 archers and the help of all the club members to make it a great day.
The venue will be The Old Dunstonian's Sports Club, St Dunstanís Lane, Beckenham, Kent, BR3 3SS. Rounds will be York, Hereford, Bristols 1 to 5. Medals are awarded for the first 3 places in the junior rounds, and according to the number of entries in the senior rounds. The Judges should be Mark Davis, Tony Harris, Debbie Horn & Steve Vallis.
We will try to keep to 4 Archers per target, but are limited to the 40 target stands we can hire. The closing date is Monday 10th April 2017, but in recent years the tournament was full, so don't leave entering until the closing date.
From the first Sunday in September to the end of April, we have the field in the afternoons until it starts to get dark. We can start getting ready from about 12:30 while the Munchkins are putting their stuff away and be ready to start at 1pm.
From the first Sunday in May until the last Sunday in August, we should get there at about 9:30 to start at 10am and have the full day. (Except for a short break about 12:45 while the Munchkins put their stuff away.)
For other days you either need a key, or to ask someone with a key if they will be there. Tuesday afternoon / evening is very popular from April to the end of September.
Welcome to the Crystal Palace Bowmen's website. We are a friendly club who are lucky enough to be able to use the grounds of the Old Dunstonian's Club in Beckenham since about 1970.
The club meets every Sunday (weather permitting!!), on most Tuesdays and some Thursday evenings during the summer. We also have use of an indoor range on Tuesday evening during the winter. Club members can also shoot during the week.
We welcome all styles of archer (recurve, long bow, compound etc.) and have four coaches who can work with archers to help them improve.
We are affiliated to ArcheryGB (otherwise known as GNAS the Grand National Archery Society), the Kent Archery Association, the Southern Counties Archery Society.
We now have a facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/cpbbowmen.
