Youth Shooting CANCELLED TONIGHT (January 12, 2018)

Due to the pending storm, we are cancelling tonight’s youth shooting session. Our next session is Friday, January 26th. Be safe everyone.

Weather Alert – Youth Shooting Program – Friday, January 12th

At the time of this post (Wednesday evening, January 10th) there is a Winter Storm watch issued for our area, starting on Friday at 1pm and running through Saturday at 4pm. Indications are that the storm will hit hard during our regular shooting time (6:30pm – 8:30pm) with rain turning to ice turning to snow in those hours. While we are not canceling shooting at this time, we did want to make everyone aware that our policy is to follow the public school closing policies (in our case, Lancaster Central Schools.) Should Lancaster cancel school (or after school activities) on a youth shooting program night, our program will also be cancelled for that evening. As well, if there are any travel advisories issued for the area in and around our range, the program will also be cancelled for that evening.

Parents are encouraged to check the website on Friday afternoon for updates. We will do our best to update everyone should we need to cancel for that evening.

Youth Shooting Program Receives 2017 NRA Foundation Grant

We are happy to announce that the Ten X Youth Shooting Program has received an NRA Foundation grant for the second year in a row.  The NRA Foundation awarded our program with Five Ruger American .22LR rifles with magazines, five Champion’s Choice shooting mats and five offhand stands. The total value of the grant is over $2,600! Combined with our 2016 grant, we now have eight .22LR rifles for our program. This will allow us to grow the program beyond air rifle shooting. This is especially important now that the Section VI high school sports organization has decided to only offer air rifle shooting for those high schools with rifle teams. Ten X will be able to serve as one of the only places in the area where young shooters can continue to improve their shooting of rimfire rifles.

Youth Shooting Resumes Friday January 12th

With the holidays behind us we will resume our regular second and fourth Fridays of the month for the Youth Shooting Program. Shooting starts @ 6:30pm and runs just under two hours. Shooters age eight and above are welcome and training is provided for all new shooters. A $3.00 donation is requested to offset the cost of ammunition. Multiple instructors are available to work with the kids, all with decades of experience and/or NRA rifle coach certification. If you have questions please contact our Youth Shooting Program coordinator, Matt Giansante. His phone number is 716-622-0705 and his e-mail is matt@olm1.com.
