Exeter Company of Archers

Please see below for dates for the 2018 tournaments involving the club for your calendars:



The club is likely to be asked to host the following tournaments in 2018:

  • Sunday May 6th – DCAS Grand Day (confirmed date)
  • Saturday May 26th – Exeter Longbow Meeting (provisional date)
  • Sunday September 16th – GWAS Intercounties (provisional date)

In all cases, preliminary setting out will be done the previous afternoon / evening (times TBA).

Confirmation of dates will be available early 2018. Further information available from committee members.

These are tournaments which Exeter has hosted for many years. They are normal activities for an archery club of Exeter’s size and seniority. They contribute to club funds, which helps to keep club fees as low as possible, and to provide club equipment and facilities for all members’ use.

In order for these events to be successful, adequate support from members is necessary, and is expected. Please put these dates in your diary, and support your club by offering your assistance.

A list for names will be available at the club in the early part of the indoor season.
