Duvelle Bowmen - shoot cancellation

Duvelle Bowmen have decided that they have to cancel their Open shoot on October 18th. We feel that until a vaccination for Covid-19 is available that we cannot put our club members, many of whom are in the "At Risk" category in jeopardy. We have a new course out in our woods and when life returns to normal we shall be welcoming you all back safely.
