Friends and Family Fun Day – May 20th

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.

Work Party – April 15th

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

Election of Officers in February Club Meeting!

At the January meeting of the El Dorado Hills Bowmen, new bylaws were adopted.  These bylaws restructured the Board of Officers and provides for their annual election. This is a major change and a major challenge for the membership.  Year after year, for many years, the success of the club has relied on the herculean efforts of the same few members. Now those heroes have decided to pass the baton.  Election of a new Board of Officers will be held at the February Meeting (Wednesday, Feb 8).

The new bylaws, describing officer and committee duties, are posted at http://eldoradohillsbowmen.com/news/.  Under the new bylaws, the new officers are not expected to do every task but instead rely on committees of members to work with them to spread the load.  Please read the new bylaws and decide which officer position or which committee membership best suits your skills   Names can be placed in nomination for EVERY officer position from now until nominations close during the February meeting.    To place your name in nomination, contact Tom Grube at TomGrube@ElDoradoHillsBowmen.com

The nominations received so far are:

  • President:  Bill Peterson
  • Vice President Activities: James Myers
  • Vice President Publicity: Kris Selberg
  • Treasure: Glenda Chastain
  • Secretary:  Dave Powaser
  • Range Manager: Tony Dunn
  • Members at Large:  Richard English, Greg Landon
    (The two member at large positions with will go the top two nominees receiving the most votes)

Committees needing volunteers are:

  • Membership committee
  • Activity committee
  • Publicity committee
  • Target committee

New officers are not expected to do all of the tasks.  If there are no volunteers to spread the burden, the task will not get done.   Broader participation by members is now essential if the club is to succeed. An example… at the January Club meeting, the decisions to spend $9,000 of club money were based upon the vote of twelve members (which included 3 officers, 3 brand new 1st time members).  Major decision affecting the club must by made by a broader representation of opinions! Please volunteer to run for office, be a committee member, or just attend meetings.

Come to the February Club Meeting and make your voice heard!

February 8th  6:30pm, at the Club House.
