Youth Shooting Program Update – 6/20/21

We are pleased to announce that we fully expect that the Youth Shooting Program will resume this coming September. Mark your calendars for Septebmer 17th as our first shoot. There are a few changes for the upcoming year:

Instead of shooting on the 2nd and 4th Fridays of each month, we will be shooting on the 1st and third Fridays of every month. This will afford us three more opportunities to shoot. In the past we only shot once in November, December, and May. With this revised schedule, we will add back in our 2nd week of shooting in those months. After several years of holding the cost at $3 per shooter, we do need to increase the cost per shooter to $5. By bringing in more money for the program we will be able to continue to keep up with the supplies and equipment we need to maintain the program. Likely everyone is aware of the severe ammunition shortage that shooters around the country are facing. As a […]

June 2021 Membership Meeting

The June 2021 general Membership Meeting will be Monday June 7, 2021, at 7:30 pm at the Indoor Range. The meeting will be in person and streamed on Zoom.

● The June 7, 2021, meeting will be our last meeting until September barring any emergencies or special meetings. If you are sponsoring a prospective member, please get their membership application to a Board Member, preferably Al Hopkins, ASAP.

The proposed amendment and a proxy are included with this newsletter. Pursuant to the Club Constitution, the proposed amendment must be read aloud and voted on at two successive meetings before it can be adopted.

Youth Shooting Program Update – March 2nd, 2021

While we’re all pleased to see the decline in overall cases, hospitalizations, and of course deaths related to Covid, we are still unable to restart the program with the current social distancing restrictions that are in place. And while we are aware that there is a strong possibility that those distancing restrictions may be reduced or even eliminated in the coming weeks, we also are at a point in the year where restarting the program for this season would really be impractical. Our program always ends on the 2nd Friday of May – by the time we could get started we would likely only get a couple or three sessions in – and that doesn’t factor in the Easter break, a time when our attendance is historically light. With all of that in mind, our very strong expectation is that we will resume the regular Friday evening program in September – specifically, September 24th. We always start the fourth Friday in September and end on the second Friday in […]

March 2021 Newsletter

The next general membership meeting isMarch 1, 2021 at 7:30 PM at 853 Ransom Road

● One year ago, we had the last normal membership meeting. The world rapidly changed after March 4 and we wound up cancelling meeting after meeting because no one understood COVID. But, Ten X survived. And our membership survived. We are not aware that any of our members passing away, and more importantly, no member or guest became infected from using our Club, even with the shoulder-to-shoulder pistol leagues resuming this past October. As your Club President, I want to thank each of our members who stuck with us and who used the range with attention and care for your fellow shooters. […]

Facebook Muzzles NYSRPA

Late today, we received word that Facebook shut down the official NYSRPA Facebook account and the personal accounts of NYSRPA President Tom King and NYSRPA Bullet publisher, Carl Gottstein. Unfortunately, this appears par for the course lately. And, these events potentially have implications for Ten X and all other gun clubs or Second Amendment organizations who maintain a social media presence. We hope that you would be sufficiently outraged to write your state and federal elected representatives. There is so much at stake. Ten X needs you to stay connected and grow our membership.

Attached below is the email bulletin from NYSRPA President King. Subscribing to the NYSRPA and Ten X websites might be a good idea to help keep you informed of important events that affect your gun rights.

Fellow Gun Owners, The NYSRPA is happy to announce a new email alert list that will bring you the latest information regarding your Second Amendment rights as well as any other pertinent […]
