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).  There has been a ton of activity since the beginning of June.

Thank you to all of the members who came out and finished the outdoor range project.  The turning target mounts on the 25 yard line were changed out and stone was spread to help with drainage.  Good work to everyone! The lock to the outdoor range kitchen and bathrooms was changed to a keypad design.  The combination code is the same as the gate combination.  Thanks, Al H., for finishing this project! Thank also to Paul Englert for making up a half dozen target frames for the outdoor range!  Some of the old frames were showing their wear and tear, and its always good to have a few spares in the closet. Thank you to […]

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 […]

We inaugurated the 2018 Tournament season with out first 3-gun, “2700” tournament on June 10.  Eight competitors came out.  We continue to look for ways to improve our matches and make them more dynamic and appealing to younger shooters, as well as our well seasoned cadre of competitors.

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:

June 11th @ 6:30pm (Rain Date: 6/13) July 9th @ 6:30pm (Rain Date: 7/11) August 13th @ 6:30pm (Rain Date: 8/15)

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.

Scout Troops To Be Hosted in April and May

On April 19, 2018, and May 15, 2018, we will be hosting a special youth shooting night for a pair of local Scout Troops.  On the 19th, the UPSTAIRS indoor range will be restricted to the youth shooting event and the Girl Scouts.  The downstairs range will be open for the regular Thursday evening open shooting.

On Tuesday, May 15th we will be hosting a special youth shooting night for a local Boy Scout Troop. Open shooting will be unavailable to the general membership that evening.

Our Youth Shooting program continues to grow and these special sessions are another way we are introducing the youth of our community to shooting in a safe and educated environment. Our goal is that shooters who attend these sessions will return to participate in both our open youth shooting program and even consider our newly established Competitive Team.
