Lost and found

Lost and found: we have a couple of items lost and found on the range during the July 29th shoot.  Contact, identify, and provide us with the details of the items you lost: http://diablo-bowmen.org/contact/


SB 1221 would outlaw the hunting of bears and bobcats with hounds.

If you think hounds are essential to the hunting of bears and bobcats, read on…
Here’s a message from the California Deer Association:
On August 8th, the Assembly Appropriations Committee in Sacramento placed SB 1221 on suspense. SB 1221 would outlaw the hunting of bears and bobcats with hounds. This suspense action just means the bill is on hold and will come up again on Aug 16th for a vote. This bill, if passed, will cost the state millions of dollars at a time when our schools are in trouble and the state’s economy is a mess. Our elected officials in Sacramento need to deal with the real economic problems of the state and not this bill that is backed by lies and misinformation.Please call and write the committee representatives listed at this link http://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?e=001slgh3PmKwBwLEQvUqBpCnCu16hcyTfa8qT2xHFUPdnOBlSi8vzSPWO1PdgYNmYFigxOFDdlPjuNjOop-NSMUsZtSvhapW_WyFEq1OoLzu_z1UDEXLv2giymHUq5sVwTV8L5Fe6x1VFY= and tell them California cannot afford this costly bill. They can still bring the bill up at any time until midnight Aug 31st unless it is voted down on Aug 16th so keep calling, emailing and writing letters until the bill is killed and have all your friends do the same.

Remember, bears kill more than 70% of the fawns each year west of the Sierra Crest — buy a bear tag this season!

Diablo Bowmen have just suffered a monumental loss.  Sunday, July 1, 2012, Greg Tobler our Youth Outreach Chair and Board Member passed away.  His memorial will be held on July 14th according to his daughter.  She will contact me as soon as more of the details of the memorial have been scheduled.  His daughter wanted me to let everyone know as Greg considered this archery club his second family.  We will be cancelling the Family Fun Day so that members may attend the memorial.  There are no words to describe how much he will be missed.”

–Angel Yarnell, President

It is an honor to have met one of those people.  He was always such a pleasure to be around, and was so helpful — some of my funnest days at the range  were when he was there.  Greg was one of those people everyone should have enter into their lives.  I’m so fortunate to have known him, though my time was so short.  I can’t even imagine how heartwrenching this is for all of you who have known him for so, so much longer.  He is easily one of the best guys I have ever met in my life.”
