    Anyone interesting in helping to form a club in Bedford?

    How hard is it to form a new club?

    I'm a newbie to this forum, but I'd love to have a club closer to home, (in Bedford) than those currently available, for myself and my two daughters.

    I'll be the first to admit I don't know the current requirements for this. I haven't been on a proper range in many years, but I'm planning to head out to the Scotia Bowmen open house next week, to check it out.

    Through various local contacts, I believe I have a good chance of acquiring both appropriate land, and financial support to get started, if there was a committed group of individuals interested in forming a Bedford club.

    The youth interest is really high right now, and I think it will last a few years at least, so this seems like a good time to try to make something happen.

    Thoughts? Suggestions?

    I'm surprised nobody answered your question. I think that the area is kind of saturated with clubs for the few people doing archery in this area. If you have that much energy that you're thinking of starting a club from scratch, I'm sure one of the already established club would love to have you on board, as volunteers are always in great demand.

    Cheers,

    Thanks for the response.

    I don't disagree that the clubs already around are great, it's more the locations that frustrate me. I'm a busy guy and carving an hour out to shoot in the evening isn't feasible when the club is 1/2 hour drive away. Not to mention the gas involved.

    But I think I've got my answer in the general lack of responses.

    I'm in Lower Sackville, I'm wanting to get into archery and a Bedford club would be perfect. Any chance of this happening?

    Myself and other local coaches could certainly help get a club up and running. You will need a facility, indoor or out or both, an executive to make the decisions, and you shuld register as a non profit society with the registry of joint stocks. An AANS club membership is 60 dollars (gives you insurance) and you will need some people to take some courses. A club needs a trained level one coach (150 dollar course), see the coaching section of the main AANS page, and either a range safety officer or a club level judge in 3D or target, whatever you wish to shoot or both. The RSO and Judge's exam and the materials required are online at the archery canada website.
