Welcome to Grange Bowmen Inc.
Grange Bowmen is a Brisbane based archery club that was formed over 30 years ago and today boasts one of the best facilities on offer to any archer. The club is ‘Australian Bowhunting Association’ (ABA) affiliated. This means we are part of a national body of ABA clubs who offer their members exciting diversity in the targets they shoot as well as offering both social (club) and competetive ABA shooting. Our culture is to promote archery as a social sport and our members are a friendly group made up of men, women and children.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Do you have to be a hunter to join?
Absolutely not, infact many of our members don’t hunt. The great thing about ABA shooting is that it offers the archer a great variety of ‘natural’ targets with scoring zones which aren’t that clear until you get very close. This adds a level of intrigue and makes you ‘learn’ the scoring zones so if you ever did hunt you should be better prepared. We usually ensure there are also traditional round (IFAA) targets on our practice range to offer archers the best of both worlds.
What ranges does Grange Bowmen offer?
All new members are initially restricted to a well maintained practice range (30yards) while on a 3 month probationary membership that comes FREE with your instruction lesson. The restriction is in place to ensure a limited shooting distance and provide safety for all members using the field ranges. Once you become a full member and are ‘range cleared’ by one of our instructors you will have 7 day access to our 2 ‘field’ ranges. Each range is set in a natural bush environment and each consists of targets set at various distances. These bush walks are really the icing on the cake and allow you to see if your practice has prepared you for the real thing! As an ABA member you will also be able to shoot at any other ABA affiliated club for a small fee.
When can I access the club house?
As a member of Grange Bowmen you have access to the comfortable club house on Saturdays and Sunday’s (10am t0 4pm) when a committee member is present. The clubhouse has hot showers and toilets and you will also be able to purchase drinks (No Alcohol) and merchandise. PLEASE NOTE.. We can only accept CASH as there are no eftpos facilities on the premises.
