Bergen Bowmen Bulletin

Along about 1956 the club membership saw a need for
communication to our growing membership.

A monthly newsletter was decided upon, but the means to print it
was up in the air. An approach was made to someone from
DITTO, INC. from Lodi as to the availability of a used duplicating

It was not but a few weeks later that Len Hill, the manager of
DITTO, came through with a used machine, paper, duplicating
fluid and stationary for the club. Within a year the DITTO property
became available for use as our outdoor shooting range, all
through the graces of Len Hill and DITTO.

Harry Kuhles was the orginal editor of the Bergen Bowmen
Bulletin from it's inception untill 1960. Hank Johnson took over the
editorship until 1964 when Harry took it over again. Al Sabino was
editor from 1975 until 1994 when Kathrine Bombace took over for
a brief few months and had to turn the editorship over to Jack
Spoto. Jack turned out the bulletin until end of 1999 at which
point it was published by Joann Mills for three months before
returning to Kathrine Bombace Surlak in March 2000. Kathrine
turned the presses over to Joan Mills in August 2008 and at some
point it The Bulletin was no longer being published. In January
2017 the Bulletin began being published by Kathy Bombace
again. We are grateful to have the Bulletin back again.
