About Us

Previously known as Glooscap Archery Club, we are a small, rural archery club in Western Hants. We are Nova Scotia's longest continuously run archery club, founded in 1965.
The club itself sits on 200 acres of shared wood/park land, of which we lease 55 acres. This allows us to set up 3D target trails, throughout the woods, for our members to practice their shooting. Our 3D targets are set up during our published shoots, as well as one day each weekend during summer.
"Here are four of the members of the Glooscap Archery Club, Hantsport, who have challenged a Halifax club and will meet them in competition at the Olympic Gardens, Halifax, on Thursday evening. The club, organized in December, 1965, has twelve active members. Left to right are Roland Newcombe, Roger Hill, the first member to receive a trophy for getting 6 arrows in the gold, Carleton Schofield, the second trophy winner and Bill Gaudet."
