Youth Shooting Program Update – January 19th

Our next session is this coming Friday the 24th @ 6:30pm. As always, new shooters please arrive @ 6pm for safety and firearms orientation.

With the lousy weather hitting us this weekend it’s a good time to remind everyone that we follow the Lancaster Central School District closing policy. If LCSD schools are closed for the day (or after school activities are cancelled) on a shooting day, then shooting is also cancelled.

MANY THANKS to member Bill Siska for filling our tank for the air rifles. Not only did Bill set up our tank system when we first started the program but he’s been great about keeping us “topped off” so that we always have the rifles fully charged with air!

Our downstairs program had a great turnout last week. Kids were shooting self-supported from the bench, as well as standing and prone. The kids upstairs did a nice job last week with the BB guns. They are, admittedly, not the most accurate or well-sighted guns, but for the […]

ATTENTION MEMBERS!

It’s that time of year again . . . Your annual Membership Dues should be submitted to Ten X by the first day of every calendar year.

Dues for 2020 are $110.00

Annual 2020 rental fee for an Indoor Range Key Fob is $10.00

Assessment for not fulfilling your Volunteer Obligation in 2020 is $75.00 (If you fail to get all your work in for 2020, you will owe an assessment of $75.00 in 2021).

Most of you already have $50.00 deposited in an escrow account with Ten X.  That means that most of you will owe an additional one-time payment of $25.00 in order to fully fund your Work Assessment Volunteer Escrow (WAVE) account.

Please direct any questions you may have regarding the fulfillment of your 2019 Volunteer Obligation […]
