Would you like to reduce your membership dues for next year? The deadline for completing club workdays is October 31, 2017.
While there are many individual tasks that need to be completed on the range, there will be very few formal workdays between now and the deadline. Therefore, consider asking for an individual task which you can complete at your convenience to receive workday credits.
We have a list of tasks posted on the Bowmen’s Clubhouse wall, including post holes which need to be dug, signs to erect, target enclosures to be painted, and carpentry work on twenty target enclosures.
Contact Bill Peterson for details @ BillPeterson@ElDoradoHillsBowmen.com
If you plan to earn credit towards next year’s dues, don’t put it off until it is too late or the work plan for this year is done.
In preparation for our Olympic Day/ Community Archery Day on Saturday June 24, there will be members working on the range every weekday morning starting on Monday June 5th at 8:00AM.
During this time members will be assigned to work various tasks, including carpentry work, painting, weed-eating, etc. Members are encouraged to stop by anytime at any time after 8AM; task lists will be posted on the club house metal wall.
We expect a large public turnout of first time visitors and TV coverage for the Olympic Day Event. We want the range looking it’s best. We hope you can join us.

We have planned a family friendly event for Saturday May 20th from 11am – 3:30pm. The event will be a member’s only event and the club will be closed to the public. That being said, we are offering a great option for members attending… you can bring Friends and Family! Members attending the shoot are welcome to bring nonmember friends and family (must be with a current member at all times) to enjoy the event and best of all this event is FREE. Family friendly activities including a youth only shooting area, lifelike 2D & 3D targets, free raffle for prizes and a BBQ lunch will be provided. This is a great opportunity to meet your fellow club members and enjoy some non-competitive fun shooting.
If you have any questions, please, email: KrisSelberg@eldoradohillsbowmen.com.
On April 15th, Bowmen’s will receive 75+ bales to replace worn/soft target bales on the range. Many volunteers will be needed to accomplish this task. Especially critical for this operation are volunteers who are knowledgeable on the operation of ATVs and Trailers; there are two ATVs and three trailers.
Any member’s who can operate the Bowmen’s ATV’s or Trailer’s … or have personal ATV’s and Trailers they would like to bring to the work party, please contact Bill Peterson at the email listed below.
A team will be needed at the container to handle the new bales. We will need a team of 4 to drop the enclosures and load/remove old bales. Another team of 4 will be needed to set the new bales and reset the enclosures. While an additional team will be needed to handle the old bales at the drop site. The more teams we have, the easier the workload for all and the sooner the work can be done.
For questions, please contact Bill Peterson @ BillPeterson@ElDoradoHillsBowmen.com
