“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

“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.”
