Youth Shooting Program Update

If you’ve been following the “phases” of reopening in New York state you have probably heard that “youth sports” are falling into phase four. As our program runs from September through May we have a bit of time to determine how we can hopefully start back up in the fall. With guidance from both the government and health officials and with the approval of the Board of Directors, we will make a determination as to how the program could restart. We are also awaiting information as to how the public schools will be operating in September and we’ll consider their plans for operation in our own plans for the program. Obviously, the health and safety of our participants, their families and our instructors is first and foremost in importance. The instructors have all missed working with the kids and are certainly hopeful that we can start again in September. Please continue to check the website for updates.

Indoor Range Summer Projects – 2020

Hello everyone,

There are a number of projects that need to be done to keep the indoor range in good shape. Each member has a work obligation to the club of 6 hours of volunteer time per year. With the corona virus pandemic, we are not having indoor work sessions because we can’t maintain proper distancing. Therefore, we are putting out a list of tasks. Members can select one or more tasks to do on their own time, away from other members. By filling out the volunteer work slip, you will get credit for your time.

Any member looking to under take any one or more of the following tasks should contact me first to make sure it isn’t already completed. My email is and phone number are below.

Here is the list:

Treasurer’s June Update

Greetings Ten X Members!

Here is a quick reminder of just how important your Range Fees are to your Club. And a plea to all our Members that you don’t take for granted your obligation to Ten X when you use our considerable resources to help you fill your leisure time with your favorite activity.

Normally, your Range Fees account for about 13% (maybe slightly more) of all the income of this fine Club. Normally, Range Fees simply augment the rest of our annual income. And, clearly, though it’s just $3 or $6 at-a-time for each of us and our Guests, these token contributions add up. And fast!

This year, for obvious reasons, things are considerably different. With the lack of income from Club-sanctioned activities and the prohibition of our participation in the many local competitive shooting leagues, your Range Fees have become more important than ever.

So far this year, and we’re not even to the half-way point of 2020, Range Fees have accounted for a whopping 23.25% […]

Youth Shooting Update – May 2020

As has become obvious, our indoor shooting will not resume for the 2019/2020 season. Hard to believe that our last session would have been this coming Friday the 8th. So much of our current situation is obviously tragic, and missing out on youth shooting, while not nearly as serious as other aspects of the current crisis, still is incredibly disappointing. All of the kids continued to make fantastic progress, especially with our recently acquired CZ Avanti air rifles.

At this time we can’t really rule in or rule out whether we would be able to shoot outdoors as had been discussed. For now, we have to rule it out. But, should the guidance from the state and feds change, we’ll reassess if we might be able to do any outdoor shooting for the summer, subject of course to the direction of our Board of Directors.

We sincerely hope all of you and your families are well, and all our instructors look forward to seeing you hopefully in the […]

NYS Offering Hunter Safety Course Online due to COVID

Member Alan W. passed along a press release that may be of use for some of our members:

Due to the State of Emergency created by the COVID-19 outbreak, the New York State DEC is offering for a limited time a complete online hunting safety education course.

First-time hunters must first earn a hunter education certificate prior to purchasing their first hunting license. The certificate is then good for all future purchases of hunting licenses.

The DEC, in its press release said, “Unfortunately, all traditional hunter education courses have been canceled due to the Covid-19 pandemic, leaving many new hunters unable to get a certificate before spring turkey season”. The statewide regular spring turkey hunting season is set from May 1-31, and the youth (ages 12-15) turkey hunting weekend on April 25-26. “Students who complete the online course and virtual field day, and pass the final exam, will receive their hunter education certificate and can purchase a hunting license,” DEC said.
