2020 Post Season Schedule

Thank you to Al for putting together our Post-NFPL and Post SPL schedule of activities. He has come up with a bunch of fun shoots for all to participate in:

Indoor Range Work Party

Jim Wieburg will be holding a cleanup of the Indoor range; the more hands on deck the better. The work party will be on 2/29/2020 at 09:00 AM the end time will depend on turnout and scope of work. There is a signup sheet on the volunteer signup page of the website, any questions can be directed to Jim Wieburg.

Youth Shooting Program Update – January 19th

Our next session is this coming Friday the 24th @ 6:30pm. As always, new shooters please arrive @ 6pm for safety and firearms orientation.

With the lousy weather hitting us this weekend it’s a good time to remind everyone that we follow the Lancaster Central School District closing policy. If LCSD schools are closed for the day (or after school activities are cancelled) on a shooting day, then shooting is also cancelled.

MANY THANKS to member Bill Siska for filling our tank for the air rifles. Not only did Bill set up our tank system when we first started the program but he’s been great about keeping us “topped off” so that we always have the rifles fully charged with air!

Our downstairs program had a great turnout last week. Kids were shooting self-supported from the bench, as well as standing and prone. The kids upstairs did a nice job last week with the BB guns. They are, admittedly, not the most accurate or well-sighted guns, but for the […]

Our final shooting session for 2019 is this coming Friday @ 6:30pm. New shooters, as always, please arrive @ 6pm. We will not be shooting on December 27th due to the holidays.

Looking ahead to 2020, here are the remaining dates we’ll be shooting:

A reminder that in the case of inclement weather we follow the Lancaster Central School District closing policy. If the district closes school on a shooting day, our shooting is cancelled. If the distract cancels after school activities, again our shooting is cancelled.

We are off to a great start this year. We’ve had almost a dozen brand new shooters, in addition […]

Youth Shooting Update – November 3rd

Our youth shooting program is off to a great start this year. In our first three sessions we’ve had eight brand new shooters, along with many returning shooters. Thanks to the efforts of Mark Martzoff (who promoted our program with some of our other members @ the Elma Conservation Club) and to great publicity by Bill Hilts, Jr. in The Buffalo News (both print and online) we are seeing many new faces. As well, an aggressive outreach to local clubs that we undertook this summer is also resulting in new interest.

Our sessions for the balance of 2019 are Friday November 8th, Friday November 22nd and Friday December 13th (no shooting on Friday December 27th.) As always first round downrange is @ 6:30pm but new shooters should arrive @ 6pm for safety and orientation training.

Youth Shooting Update: 10/8/19

Our first session of the new season was on September 27th and attendance was very good. We had three new shooters plus several of our past shooters attend. As the summer turns to fall (and turns to winter) we know that attendance will continue to increase as it always does, so we’re optimistic for another very successful season.

We have submitted a grant request again this year to the NRA Foundation. The Foundation has been extremely generous to us for two years in a row and we’re optimistic that the continued success of the program, combined with the great support from our Board and members, will help us to receive another grant in 2020.

Thanks to Mark Martzolf for organizing our group to be at the Elma Conservation Club on September 28th to promote our youth shooting program. Mark, along with Tim Colf, Jim Weiberg and Mark’s son, all were on hand to let youngsters take a few shots down range with our air rifles. We’ve already received inquiries […]

New Sheriff in town

The club record was broken again by our very own Joe McDonald. Joe was able to draw his firearm and hit 5 out of 5 steel targets in just 3.62 seconds. Nice shooting Joe !

Volunteers Needed – September 28th

On Saturday September 28th our club has the opportunity to be a part of the Elma Conservation Club’s annual National Hunting & Fishing Day event. We have the opportunity to man their 50 foot outdoor rifle shooting range and give kids who are attending the chance to take a few shots at a target. The hope is that this will generate some interest in our program and help to grow our attendance. It will also be a good opportunity for us to promote the club as a whole.

Mark Martzolf, who is also a member @ Elma, is coordinating this. He is in need of some additional volunteers to help out that day. It runs from 9am to 4pm. If we could get people to take two hour shifts, it would be a huge help. If you can help please reach out to him. His e-mail is mtmartzolf@hotmail.com

Youth Shooting 2019 / 2020 Season

As the calendar turns from August to September our youth shooting program will be getting under way. Our instructors met twice over the summer, discussing ideas on how to fine-tune our program and making sure all our equipment is ready for the new season.

Our first indoor session will be Friday, September 27th (all sessions are on the website calendar.) While we have a great group of instructors we do need additional help. If you can commit to be a part of the team on a regular basis, great. If you can come a few times, that would be helpful too. It’s a great way to get in your required work hours, but even more it’s truly a rewarding experience, seeing kids learn to shoot safely and accurately while coming to appreciate the sport as much as we all do.

This year we’ll be adding some “reaction” targets where the kids can shoot at targets other than paper. We also plan to increase use of the BB guns, […]
