“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.”

Diablo Bowmen organizes archery in Girl Scout’s 100th anniversary event.

On May 5, 2012, the Northern California Girl Scouts celebrated its 100th anniversary on Pleasanton Fairgrounds.  21,000 girls attended the event. At least 2,500 held a bow and shot an arrow that day.  The program was organized by Diablo Bowmen, Extreme Archery, Girls Scouts of America, and volunteers from various archery clubs in Northern California.
