2018 Indoor Sectional National Results Published

Ten X was proud to host the 2018 Indoor Sectional Championship match this past March.  The preliminary results of our match were posted here after the match.  We hosted a total of 24 competitors from as far west as Jamestown and as far east as Rochester.

This past week, the NRA Competitions Division posted their preliminary national results.  A copy of the preliminary precision pistol results can be downloaded by clicking here.  We found a couple of interesting data points: there were a total of 1,059 competitors nation-wide.  Our own Club President placed 34th overall, 13th among Master classified shooters.  Boston Valley Conservation Club’s Rick Powers placed 22nd among Master classified shooters, 55th overall.  Twin City’s Chris Thiel placed 24th among Expert classified shooters.  In all, a very strong showing of competitors from New York and New Jersey:  remarkable for states known to have the most restrictive handgun laws.

Only one local team was fielded, which is unfortunate because in years past we were able to host four […]

Youth Shooting Starts September 7th

I’ll skip the stuff about Summer soon ending and Fall being right around the corner. That said, September is just a week away and we’ll be resuming our youth shooting program on Friday, September 7th. Here are the updates and improvements we’re making/adding for this season:

We will shoot every Friday from September through mid-May (with a few Friday’s off for holidays and “fifth” Fridays) Start time is 6:30pm (for new shooters in our Open/Recreational shooting, please arrive @ 6pm for a safety orientation)

 

The second and fourth Fridays (when we shot last year) will be for ALL shooters ages eight and up, and will be our “Open/Recreational” shooting days. This year we’ll be adding in BB guns, along with Pellet Guns. This is for our youngest shooters AND those who are not looking for more detailed instruction. Ten X member Dan DeKruger will be coordinating our Open/Recreational Program this year.

 

This year we’re adding what we’re calling “Instructional” shooting on the first and third Fridays. This will […]

September 2018 Newsletter

September marks the start of our regular monthly Membership meetings.  Due to the Labor Day holiday the next General Meeting is September 10, 2018 at 7:30 PM

● Labor Day means that we are headed back to the indoor range, the leagues, and our junior program. Thank you to all our volunteers who put in time over the summer. The remaining “to do” items include finishing the steel gable to the kitchen, putting down a couple of layers of waterproofing to the outdoor turning target mounting boards, and the usual end-of-season maintenance. We will be setting up an outdoor range work date at the September meeting.

Preliminary Results – August 2018 EIC Match

Happy Sunday, everyone.

Before we get to listing the results from today’s match, I want to say thank you to all of our volunteers who helped run today’s Western New York Outdoor Pistol League match and stayed to help run the Civilian Marksmanship Program Excellence in Competition Match.  Without a doubt, our members make these events possible, and without YOU we would not be able to host these events.

Midsummer Update 2018

It’s high summer and the range is open!  There is always so much to do between June and September, but we hope that you’ve exercised your Second Amendment rights at least once since summer officially began.

There are no meetings until September (10th).  However, there has been a ton of activity since the beginning of June. Some thank-you’s are in order:

Youth Shooting Update – June 23, 2018

Unfortunately, we did not have any youth shooters attend our first outdoor shooting date on June 11th. We realize that school exams were happening at this time, along with concerts, recitals, etc. Our next session is on July 9th, with a rain date of July 11th. If attendance is sparse or none, then we’ll cancel the session for August and resume with our indoor sessions starting in September.

Speaking of our indoor season, starting this coming September, we will be shooting EVERY Friday, with a few nights off during the holiday season, and when there is a “fifth” Friday in a month. The program is evolving and the changes will allow for our youngest shooters (ages nine through eleven and older) to fire both BB and pellet guns, with a program in place that will have the shooters work to achieve certain scores. They will receive certificates and badges for each level they achieve. Thanks to Ten X member Dan DeKruger for taking on this program. Our shooters 12 and older will be able […]

Youth Shooting Update: 5/18/18

Our indoor Youth Shooting season is complete. We will be shooting at the outdoor range on the following dates:

This shooting will be smallbore (.22lr) so it will be limited to our shooters ages 12 and up.

Our indoor shooting for all shooters will resume on September 7th. We have plans to expand to shoot every Friday starting in the fall and we’ll be offering both “recreational” and “instructional” programs, alternating weeks. More details to come as the weeks progress.
