Update April 26, 2021

Dear members and friends of Breton Traditional Archers

It’s been a long winter, we are ready to head back into the woods.
Both shooting courses are set up and we have 7 new wonderful targets.

Although we had hoped to be able to welcome new members, the resent spike in cases in our area has caused restrictions to be put in place.

BTA Members can still practice up to 25 people, protocols will be followed.
Please bring your own hand sanitzer.

We will be shooting Wednesday evenings 6:00 pm and Sundays 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. Hope to see you soon.
A special thank you to all those who helped get the courses ready.
To Bridget for making our new sign, and providing us with yummy treats, the work crew thanks you.

NO new members and spectators allowed at this point.


We had and still have a lot of inquires from people who would like to try archery.
Thanks to all of you who reached out to BTA and want to try this wonderful sport.

Although we’re not allowed to have new members on the course right now, please feel free to register as a new archer at BTA.
Please contact John via phone @ 902-371- 4718 or by email at
