Ten X Members Team Up To Get Work Done

Brisk temperatures and rain the day before were no match for a well coordinated band of Club Members who took up the outdoor range work session on Sunday October 13. Much was accomplished. Brush and saplings encroaching on the driveway and both shooting ranges were cut back, the grass was mowed, wooden benches and target frames were sealed, target frames were taken in for the winter, and most significantly the statistical building siding project was almost […]

Youth Shooting Update: 10/8/19

Our first session of the new season was on September 27th and attendance was very good. We had three new shooters plus several of our past shooters attend. As the summer turns to fall (and turns to winter) we know that attendance will continue to increase as it always does, so we’re optimistic for another very successful season.

We have submitted a grant request again this year to the NRA Foundation. The Foundation has been extremely generous to us for two years in a row and we’re optimistic that the continued success of the program, combined with the great support from our Board and members, will help us to receive another grant in 2020.

Thanks to Mark Martzolf for organizing our group to be at the Elma Conservation Club on September 28th to promote our youth shooting program. Mark, along with Tim Colf, Jim Weiberg and Mark’s son, all were on hand to let youngsters take a few shots down range with our air rifles. We’ve already received inquiries […]

Volunteers Needed – September 28th

On Saturday September 28th our club has the opportunity to be a part of the Elma Conservation Club’s annual National Hunting & Fishing Day event. We have the opportunity to man their 50 foot outdoor rifle shooting range and give kids who are attending the chance to take a few shots at a target. The hope is that this will generate some interest in our program and help to grow our attendance. It will also be a good opportunity for us to promote the club as a whole.

Mark Martzolf, who is also a member @ Elma, is coordinating this. He is in need of some additional volunteers to help out that day. It runs from 9am to 4pm. If we could get people to take two hour shifts, it would be a huge help. If you can help please reach out to him. His e-mail is mtmartzolf@hotmail.com

Youth Shooting 2019 / 2020 Season

As the calendar turns from August to September our youth shooting program will be getting under way. Our instructors met twice over the summer, discussing ideas on how to fine-tune our program and making sure all our equipment is ready for the new season.

Our first indoor session will be Friday, September 27th (all sessions are on the website calendar.) While we have a great group of instructors we do need additional help. If you can commit to be a part of the team on a regular basis, great. If you can come a few times, that would be helpful too. It’s a great way to get in your required work hours, but even more it’s truly a rewarding experience, seeing kids learn to shoot safely and accurately while coming to appreciate the sport as much as we all do.

This year we’ll be adding some “reaction” targets where the kids can shoot at targets other than paper. We also plan to increase use of the BB guns, […]

New Club Record

Martin broke the club’s Steel challenge record (formerly held by Don K) at last nights event. Martin drew from a holster and recorded hits on five out of five steel targets of varying sizes, heights and distances in 3.81 seconds. Wow. Martin is at the outdoor range practicing every Tuesday night should you need some pointers.
