The information below is from our friends at Diablo Bowmen Archery Club, please note the upcoming Oct 5th work party below, thank you in advance for your help:
On September 8, 2013, a fast moving fire consumed 3200 acres on Mt. Diablo. Dubbed the “Morgan Fire,” it was the biggest Mt. Diablo wildfire in 36 years. Unfortunately, the Diablo Bowmen Archery Club suffered enormous losses from the disaster. If not for the heroic efforts of the Contra Costa Consolidated and East County Fire Protection districts, our club’s losses would have been more.
In the preliminary report, the archery club has lossed:
– A trailer of equipment and 3D targets
– 7 outhouses and shacks
– Over 30 targets
– 35 trees that prevent erosion
– Over 50 benches and bow racks
– 2 bridges
