2015 Sectional Awards Bulletin Released

The final Match Bulletin and awards program for the 2015 NRA Sectional is attached below.  A total of 38 competitors turned out to make the match a success.  Checks and NRA points will be mailed out at the end of before May 1.  The medals for the open awards will be presented at the Combined SPL / NFPL awards banquet on May 2 at Kotecki’s Grove, West Seneca.

Two things from our stat office:

1. As always, we invite your comments and feedback about out match because we are interested in making shooting tournaments an enjoyable experience.  We want to do better.

2. We want to encourage and assist to the greatest extent possible the development of new competitors.  Lets face facts:  we as a community are growing old and grey.  The cost of equipment, guns, ammo doubled almost overnight in reaction to the SAFE Act.  More and more people are dropping out because of cost, and fear that law enforcement will be watching us due to the SAFE Act.  […]

Calling all league shooters!

Hello to all our members!!

As I hope you all know, Ten X is hosting the NRA Sectionals this weekend.  I’m urging you to come out and shoot one of the three days.  (The only one close to being full is Friday with 14 at this writing).

I’d like to see Ten X strongly represented since we are the host.  Last year we only had three competitors from the club which did not allow us to enter the team event (we needed 4).  At this point, we only have two for this year.  All in all pretty pathetic from a group I think should at least be interested in supporting our biggest annual “fundraiser” not to mention, as I mentioned, we are the host.  The event costs $25.00 per shooter (90 shots).  The club will pay for the additional entry cost of the team event (30 shots, additional  Gallery Course).
