May 2018 Newsletter

At the risk of jinxing spring, it looks like the snow has finally melted! Which brings us to the May 2018 Newsletter. But first a reminder:  the next General Membership meeting will be Monday, May 7, 2018, at 7:30 pm at the Indoor Range at 853 Ransom Road.

●   Final reminder: the combined NFPL / SPL Banquet is Saturday April 28, 2018 at Kotecki’s Gardenview Grove. The cash bar opens at 6:00pm with dinner at 7:00.  Several of our members will be receiving individual league awards.  If you are interested in attending must call Al Hopkins or Jim Gerstung ASAP to obtain a ticket.  Showing up without RSVP’ing is strongly discouraged. Please come out and support our teams and our members!

●   The combination code to the outdoor range was changed on April 1! The new combination code was included in last month’s paper newsletter which we mailed to all members at his or her mailing address on file. If you need a reminder, please contact any of the officers who can help you.  If you did not get a paper newsletter in April, please contact our Treasurer, Gail, to update our database.

●   The outdoor range spring clean up “party” is scheduled for Saturday, May 5th starting at 9am. We will be putting up the target frames, painting, trimming branches, putting down grass seed and making up targets. We should wrap up around noon. This project counts towards your volunteer time requirement for the club!

●   The Western New York Outdoor Pistol League (WNYOPL) has its first match of the season on Sunday May 6 at Tonawanda Sportsmens Club on Killian Road, Pendleton. We are sponsoring a team and need many new shooters. Please contact Jim Gerstung for more information. A league schedule is posted on the webpage under the LEAGUES / WNY Outdoor Pistol League tab. The league fee is $5.00 and each match is $3.00 per gun. The matches this month are:
