May 2017 Newsletter

The next General Membership meeting will be Monday, May 1, 2017 at 7:30 pm at the Indoor Range.  The old saying is that April showers bring May flowers.  Hopefully, we will soon be done with showers altogether for a while.  Because the outdoor range looks more like Lake Ontario than a shooting range:

With May upon us, we are moving towards the outdoor shooting season and the WNYOPL League.  We had a clean up party on April 22 to help get the outdoor range into shape.  Thank you to Mitch V. for heading up this project.

Speaking of projects, we have accomplished much in a few short weeks.  More on that in this month’s newsletter, but a public thank you needs to be made to the following members:  Al H., Roy S., Dale S., Matt G., Mitch V., Jim M., Jim G., and Bill F., among many others.

Please take a moment to read this month’s newsletter.  You can download it by clicking this link.

April 2017 Newsletter

Happy Post-St.-Patrick’s-Day Weekend!  The April Newsletter is attached below for downloading.

Spring is rapidly approaching now, which means we will start shooting outdoors later in April.  A new gate combination will be included in the paper newsletter mailed to members in good standing.  If you do not receive your April newsletter in the mail before the General Meeting on April 3, you either did not pay your dues, pay your work assessment, or your address information needs updating.

Many thanks to member Matt G. who worked very hard to ensure that Ten X won an NRA Development Grant in the amount of $3,000 to fund a junior program.  Matt also was able to secure a monetary donation from Cabella’s to assist the program.  This is why it is important to be a member of the NRA and we would be happy to help renew your membership in NRA or help you join.  Ten X is proud to be an official NRA recruiter club.

As we look to move outdoors, we […]

March 2017 Newsletter

This month’s newsletter starts with our deep appreciation and thanks to all of the members who contributed time in February to get the range ready for the Indoor Pistol Championship.  Special thanks to Tom Florkowski, Tom Wisiorek, Ed Richter, Charles Metler, Tom Petschke, and George Kirkpatrick for helping with the February 18 clean-up.  Thanks also to Ed Richter for his dry-wall repair expertise – the repairs in the upstairs ready room really look good.

The Suburban Pistol League wrapped up last month.  We have the most shooters of any SPL affiliated club, and it shows because of the number of overall matches won.  Thanks to each and every member who came out and fired at least one match!

The NFPL season will wrap up this month.  There are only three weeks left, with the next two matches at home.  There is still time to come out and see what it is all about.

We will have a number of updates at this month’s meeting.  Come out to find out what’s […]

NRA National Indoor Pistol Championships

On Friday, Saturday and Sunday, February 24, 25 & 26, Ten X held the NRA National Indoor Pistol Championship.  We would like to thank all the volunteers that made this event a real success.  Everyone that came out to volunteer for all three days really made this event run very smoothly.  We even had a chance to clean out the closet under the stairs in the downstairs range!

Thanks to everyone for all your hard work (too many to name in this limited space).  However, a big public thank you to our Match Secretary Jim Gerstung for all the paperwork that you manage.

The Preliminary Results of the match are below.  You can download the PDF by clicking here.

Clean Up Weekend

On Saturday, February 18th we held our indoor clean up. We would like to thank all those that came out to make the place look great for the NRA National Indoor Pistol Championship. Among those that came out to clean were, Tom Florkowski, Tom Wisiorek, Ed Richter, Charles Metler, Tom Petschke, and George Kirkpatrick. All those guys really made the place look great for the sectional. Thanks again for all your hard work guys..

February Sectional

Just a reminder that we are still in need of volunteers for the February Sectional. This is a great time to get your volunteer hours in.  Also we will be raffling off a Paracord Rifle Sling that weekend.

2017 Precision Pistol Sectional Match

Ten X is proud to announce that we are hosting the 2017 Precision Pistol Sectional Championship on February 24 – 26, 2017.

Every year the NRA hosts the National Indoor Pistol Championships.  The Indoor Championships are conducted at hundreds sectional tournaments all across the U.S. and the results are submitted to NRA for national ranking and awards.  More than 4,000 people participating every year in Rifle and Pistol events.

The Sectional Program, which includes registration information, the course of fire, a map to find the range and sign-up sheet, is attached below.  Please pre-register!  We routinely have 50 or more competitors attend our match and room is limited to range […]

January 2017 Newsletter

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!  We hope that everyone enjoys the coming holiday and that every one of our members gets at least one high-powered gift.  The January Newsletter is attached below.  Here are the highlights:

Due to the fact that New Years Day falls on a Sunday, January 2 is a Holiday.  This will push our General Meeting to Monday January 9, 2017. The proposed amendment to the Ten X Constitution will be voted on at this upcoming meeting. There will be updates concerning the Youth Development initiative and this coming year’s range improvement projects.

The 2017 January Newsletter can be downloaded by clicking this link.

The Club will need a couple metalworkers to help fabricate a few air gun pellet traps and we will need to schedule an indoor range repair party to replace vestibule subfloor and replace the linoleum at the door threshold.

 

December Newsletter

Happy Thanksgiving to all our members and guests.

The December 2016 Newsletter is attached below along with a copy of the proposed Constitutional Amendment and the proxy for voting on that amendment, and a copy of the ballot for election of officers.  Please let a Board Member know if you have any questions.  Good shooting.
