The Round-Up is set to take place in April, and will be the association's first Spring Round-Up since before Covid.
From Thursday, April 7 to Sunday, April 10, the BWA will be returning to the land at the Anglia Motel, near Holbeach.
The weekend is open to everybody, including non-members and those who are just wanting to visit for the day.
Thursday night will be a welcome evening, followed by a social evening on the Friday.
Saturday will have the popular fast draw competition and other Western games, including archery, knife throwing, roping and throwing arrows.
Then in the evening Country musician Kenny JR will be performing live, and everyone will have a chance to celebrate the weekend and dress in their Western finery.
Chairman, Mark Firth, said: "It's a good old fashioned get together, it's something we all need, and there's so many looking forward to the weekend."
We are pleased to announce that Kenny JR will be performing as the evening entertainment on Saturday, April 9, for this year's Spring Round-Up.
New Committee Member, Laycie Beck takes up the post of promotions and publicity for the association.
On behalf of all members of the Committee, we would like to say a HUGE welcome on board to Laycie Beck who has been co-opted to join the committee as our Publicity and Promotions officer.
Laycie has been a BWA member for a few years now and joins us in the Authentic camps with her partner Bear. I'm sure most of you know her already.
For those of you who do not know Laycie, she is a professional journalist who has been working behind the scenes over the past year promoting the association in newspapers as well as news media outlets on the internet.
She will undoubtedly be a great asset in promoting the Association and I hope you will join us in welcoming her to the committee.
