2021/2022 Youth Shooting Season

Our final youth shooting session of the season was held this past Friday the 20th. We had great attendance for the final session and wrapped up the season with our annual pizza party and the awarding of NRA marksmanship certificates and patches for seven shooters. Thanks to Dan DeKruger for all his help on the marksmanship awards. And thanks to all the families who brought snacks and goodies for the party.

Overall we were very pleased with the season. Resuming a year and a half after we had to pause due to Covid we were not sure how the turnout would be. Happily we had great turnout from both returning shooters and many new shooters. We’re happy to report that since the founding of the program in 2016 (and our first shooting in the 2017/18 season) we are now over 100 individual participants who have shot with us. Considering that we had over a full year where we could not shoot due to Covid, this is a great accomplishment.

Youth Shooting Program Update – January 1, 2022

Happy New Year everyone! We hope that the holiday season was wonderful for all of you. We’ll be back at it this Friday, January 7th – first round downrange @ 6:30pm. New shooters, as always, arrive @ 6pm for safety and firearms orientation.

We have good news for those who shoot downstairs. As a result of the November lottery funds raised, we were able to secure a case of 22lr ammunition and for the balance of this shooting season we’ll be able to drop the additional $5 charge for ammunition. So, the cost will be $5 per session whether you’re shooting upstairs or downstairs. Thanks to the many Ten X members and the youth shooting program families who supported our lottery as it allowed us to achieve our goal of removing the additional $5 ammo charge. And a reminder that anyone who wants to shoot but would find the cost to be prohibitive, our standing policy is that no kid is refused. Simply come shoot and don’t worry about […]

Youth Shooting this Friday, October 1st

We had an excellent turnout back on September 17th for our first session since the Covid shutdown. All of us involved in the youth program weren’t really sure how things would go, but the response was great. We’ll be back at it this coming Friday, October 1st. First round downrange is @ 6:30pm. As always, new shooters are asked to arrive @ 6pm for a safety and firearms orientation. We will also have tickets for sale for the November lottery to benefit the youth program. We look forward to seeing new and returning shooters. E-mail Matt Giansante, Ten X Youth Shooting Program Coordinator at matt@olm1.com with any questions.

Youth Shooting Fundraiser

The Youth Shooting program is holding a lottery fundraiser in the month of November. Each ticket will have four numbers (chances) to win every day during the month of November. The lottery is based on the winning three-digit New York State Lottery evening number. Each ticket is just $5 and the daily prize is $20.

Members are encouraged to purchase tickets at the October general membership meeting. We will also hand out tickets to any members who are willing to help sell the tickets for us.

Anyone who is interested in purchasing tickets (or members who would like tickets prior to the October general membership meeting) may contact Matt Giansante @ 716-622-0705 or via e-mail at matt@olm1.com to do so.
