Breton Traditional Archers

Breton Traditional Archers was founded in 2002. Founding member Richard Strang is still an honourable member of the club.  The goal was to provide a place for traditional archers and to support the use of traditional equipment by offering help to those interested in taking up the sport.

We are situated on a large tract of land owned by Steve & Marlene Gavel.

We are Northeast of East Bay, about 10 minutes from Sydney. We have the added luxury of the use of their cabin and “little brown shack outback”. Our isolation (1km drive up the mountain) allows us to have our course set up ready to go for about 7 months of the year.

We presently have 2 courses. One course near the cabin is readily accessible to all people. The lanes run from a gravel road and it is easier to navigate and is fairly short.The second course is of longer duration with lanes extending from a winding woodland path. Each course has twenty (20) 2-D and 3-D targets.The level of difficulty can be adjusted for both courses by changing the shooting location.
