JOINING THIS WEBSITE DOES NOT MEAN YOU HAVE JOINED THE PACIFIC BOWMEN ARCHERY CLUB. MEMBERSHIP FEES NEED TO BE PAID DIRECTLY TO A SENIOR COMMITTEE MEMBER AT THE CLUB. PAID MEMBERS OF THE CLUB ONLY WILL BE ACCEPTED FOR MEMBERSHIP OF THIS WEBSITE.
As President of Pacific Bowmen Inc. I am pleased to introduce our great club to you.
Pacific members practice both Field Archery and Bowhunting. Our club membership is made up of a mix of young and old, male and female with a common interest and varying levels of skill with the bow and arrow, and each and every one of them will assist you in learning more about our fantastic sport.
Our club enjoys a friendly atmosphere and has been around for over twenty years. Social events include the whole family in a safe environment. Pacific Bowmen is a fully affiliated member of the Australian Bowhunters Association (ABA) the national body for our form of archery in Australia.
We encourage participation at the club. The management of the activities and the grounds is carried by members of the club as volunteers. All members are encouraged to pitch in and give a hand where possible.
If you are thinking of giving it a go, our club will make you most welcome and every assistance will be given to you.
In closing, on behalf of the members and the committee thank you for your interest and we look forward to meeting you at the club.

Archery is fun. People who play Archery are people just like you. Truck drivers, retirees, plasterers, teachers, salespersons, electricians, bankers, home makers or students etc. may choose to participate. Archery is played in a social setting and in a relaxed environment. This means that although the sport is demanding both physically and mentally, you will enjoy your day outdoors with like minded people.
Archery is a family sport. Equipment used in archery is made to suite all participants regardless of gender or age. Archers are graded according to their ability; this means that with properly matched equipment, competition is fair for all participants. Participation in archery as a family sport is relatively inexpensive, with the added bonus that all members can participate at the same time. It is also a very healthy outdoor activity.
Archery is safe. Prior to commencing to shoot our ranges, you will be required to undergo appropriate training with the club coach/s. Only when your ability has been assessed as competent, by the coach, will you be allowed to shoot on the club ranges. These requirements and precautions are in keeping with Pacific Bowmen Inc. affiliation requirements set down by our national body; Australian Bowhunters Association (A.B.A.). You must be an ABA member prior to being accepted as member of Pacific Bowmen Inc. As a member you are covered by our national public liability policy.
Starting out equipment. We have a limited range of equipment for you to have a go on, for the simple reason there is a vast difference in requirements depending on the person's physical size. However we can make do with what we have until you decide that this is the sport you wish to play. This is part of the reason for spending time with the coaches so they are able to advise the correct equipment size for you. As mentioned earlier it is not an expensive sport, and second hand equipment is available from our club members from time to time.
Age limits? There are none as such. If you are physically capable to participate and the coach/s confirms you are, then you are more than welcome to participate. If, as a parent or guardian you have young children that wish to participate in the sport a club requirement is that you be in attendance until at least they have been assessed as competent to shoot on the ranges. We fully encourage parental participation and involvement in the activities of the club, in support of their children.
How long have we been in existence? Pacific Bowmen Inc. was formed in February 1982 and currently has around 60 members that play archery at various times, and, also attend our regular working bees that are held every month, for a duration of two hours so that we are able to maintain our grounds and ranges that we have leased from the Gold Coast City Council.
How often can you shoot? Once you have been assessed as a competent archer you are able to shoot the ranges at any time you wish at no charge. It is a requirement though, that children must be accompanied by an adult whilst shooting the ranges. Once a month we hold a Club competition where all members shoot in their grade and bow type division. See attached calendar of club activities.
Facilities. Our facilities include a large shower and toilet block, storage lock-ups, indoor shooting range, two practice ranges, two 20 target ABA ranges used for paper and 3D rounds. Hot food and drinks are served at club shoots from our well equipped kitchen.
How much is all this going to cost?
Yearly Fees: Adult = $40, Junior = $25 Cub = $20 Family = $55
ABA Fees: Please refer to separate attachment.
Monthly shoot fees: Approx $10 per adult. Family rates do apply.

3 to 11 November 2012
Field Archery will be one of a record 40 sports on the program at the 8th Pan Pacific Masters Games to be held on the beautiful Gold Coast from 3 to 11 November 2012. As usual, Pacific Bowmen will be the host venue for the Field Archery event.
The Pan Pacs, as the Games are affectionately known, are a celebration of master’s sport with both fierce and friendly competition on the sporting field and a fun-filled entertainment program at the Games Village each night.
The sport is conducted in age groups with no qualifying standards to enter. The only criteria for entry is that participants must meet the minimum age for their sport, and for most sports that is 30 years of age.
All sports are located in close proximity to the Games Village situated at the Gold Coast Convention & Exhibition Centre in Broadbeach. The Games Village will feature the registration centre , live nightly entertainment, fully catered hospitality and merchandise, but most-of-all, an exclusive venue for participants to meet up and enjoy the spirit of the Pan Pacs.
The Pan Pacific Masters Games is organised by Events Queensland Gold Coast with great support from the Gold Coast City Council and the host organisations for all 40 sports.
