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.
Update: We have 8 volunteers and would like to have, at least, 15 volunteers for the show.

Another work day has been scheduled for Saturday, Oct 22, 2016! The plan for this work day is to pour the final six concrete target pads! Lunch will be included! So, grab your work gloves and meet us at the club house!
Reminder: You can save on your club dues by joining the work party!
On Thursday 9/22, 2 days before our scheduled work party on the 24th Tony could use your help for a few hours in the morning starting at 8:30am.
Tony, Eric and others will be preparing the sites at targets 22 & 21 for the Saturday concrete pour. The intent is to tear down #21 and set the forms in place for the scheduled concrete pour at the Saturday work party.
We will be relocating target 22 about 10 to 15 degrees to the right so the target will remain in use during construction. The reason for the move is twofold. You will note while shooting at the target you are aiming toward residential property. While far off a wild high shot could go over in the direction. We want to avoid any and all complaints from neighbors so are being proactive. We had actually moved the target once before for the same reason. Secondly, the target is set on a bed of rock so it would be labor intense to try and create a flat surface.
Remember the work party on Saturday the 24th. Bring your weed eaters, safety glasses and gloves.
Come out and help us in our attempt to invigorate our club with a broad array of activities that appeal to members of all ages and skill levels.
When: Saturday, October 1st, 2016 at 11:00AM
Where: EDH Bowmen Clubhouse
What: BBQ, Brainstorm, and fun shoot
Let’s make our club membership even better! Come out to the Range for a family BBQ and fun shoot to give us your ideas on new activities!
Are you new to the sport and want to see more learning sessions?
Are you a shooter who wants to see more competitive shoots?
Would you like to see more fun shoots where the entire family can participate?
Organize groups for club trips to other clubs in the area? Maybe restart a winter league?
Give us your ideas and we will try to make it happen. Even if you don’t have any ideas and just want to BBQ; that’s ok, too! Come out and spend time with your fellow bowmen/bow-women!
At the BBQ, our CSD instructor Jame Myers will be setting up the Recurve Bows for all you compound shooters, new shooters, or anyone else who would like to give it a try. It’s a great way to introduce someone to our sport too!
And if you can’t make it to the BBQ, we would still like to hear your ideas, too! Just jot them down and send them to: Bill Peterson at BillPeterson@ElDoradoHillsBowmen.com
Let’s get involved and have some fun at the Range!
