We had our second rehabilitation work party today since the Morgan Territory Fire. We had a great turnout of members, individual non-members and members of sister clubs such as San Francisco Archers and Silverado Archers. I want to thank all of you for all your hard work.
We were able to finish clearing and chipping the brush and downed trees on the Cruse Round. We also started clearing on the Regalia. There is a lot of debris on the Regalia so this may take some time. Kings Mountain Archers came out in the morning to bring coffee and donuts and to hand deliver a monetary donation which was appreciated with cheers.
Thank you very much it started the day off with a nice treat. We were also provided lunch by our members Marlene and Jalia who donated and prepared the lunch. Yah!! We cannot express our appreciation and joy enough for the help and support we are being given from everyone. Our goal is to be in a good enough position to be able to host our Winter Hunt Shoot in January.

Thanks to the 16 people who helped clean the range last Sep. 28. Around 65% of the burned trees were cut on the Cruse Round.
On Saturday, Oct. 5, we will finish cleaning the Cruse Round and move on to the Regalia Round. Coffees and goodies will be provided courtesy of the Purcell’s from Kings Mountain Archers and Angel.
Lunch will be provided to those who sign up, compliments of Marlene and Jalia. You can sign up by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or entering your name here.
Dear Diablo Members:
All events scheduled this year at Diablo Bowmen are cancelled until further notice. We will update you as we get more information on the condition of the range. We will lock the range gate to everyone (except board members, officers and chairs) until we can gain entrance and evaluate the safety of the area.
Club shoots for 9/14 and 10/12 and also the 900 round on 10/6 are cancelled.
Angel Yarnell, President
Yes, the Mt. Diablo Fire has crossed our range. From what we could tell it has crossed a couple of our rounds. We will not know the extend until we are allowed to investigate. We will send out a Bulletin to the members with the updates but its probably best if the members keep away until they hear from us on Facebook and email bulletin. Thank you all for your wishes.
