“Wow, well we pulled it off.  It was successful as evidenced from the smiles, compliments and organization.  I enjoyed doing this event with fellow members and friends and I hope you all did as well.  It could not have happened without the help of each and every one of you (Kathy, Pete, Rick, Bruce, Sharla, Cleon, Ivan, Cindy, Scott, Kent, Carl, Cory, Dakotah, Miguel, and other volunteers).  We exposed a lot of hopefuls to the sport of archery; answered questions; and gave direction.   I just wanted to personally thank all of you for giving your time on a holiday weekend to help Diablo promote archery and boost our account so that we can continue to do so in the future.”  ~ Angel

Archery Open House 2013 (Jun 22)


Wow what a day! The Diablo crew taught over 300 people the fine art of archery. It was a long day but well worth our accomplishment. I believe we started the next generation of archers. I want to thank my team out there today. We worked like a well oiled machine.

Video clips from the event will be posted on the Diablo Bowmen Facebook page. Be sure to Like our page.
