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.

Thanks for your help in supporting the Ten X Youth Shooting program!

Ten X Youth Shooting Program Resumes September 17th!

I’ve been waiting to write that headline for 18 months! Everything is a go for our first session of the year, which will be a week from this coming Friday, September 17th. As always, first round downrange is at 6:30pm. If you are new or are bringing someone new, be sure to arrive by 6pm so the new participatnt can go through the safety and firearms familiarity training.

Here are a few things that are different as we resume.

First, we will be asking everyone to sign a form that acknowledges that no one has knowingly been in contact with anyone with Covid or has signs/symptoms of Covid. We will need these filled out for everyone each time you attend, both participants and parents/guardians (parents are to fill out for their kids.) The second difference, as we announced earlier this summer, is that for those shooting 22lr downstairs you have the option of providing your own ammunition or you can purchase ammunition from the club for $5 for the […]

Youth Shooting Program Update – 6/20/21

We are pleased to announce that we fully expect that the Youth Shooting Program will resume this coming September. Mark your calendars for Septebmer 17th as our first shoot. There are a few changes for the upcoming year:

Instead of shooting on the 2nd and 4th Fridays of each month, we will be shooting on the 1st and third Fridays of every month. This will afford us three more opportunities to shoot. In the past we only shot once in November, December, and May. With this revised schedule, we will add back in our 2nd week of shooting in those months. After several years of holding the cost at $3 per shooter, we do need to increase the cost per shooter to $5. By bringing in more money for the program we will be able to continue to keep up with the supplies and equipment we need to maintain the program. Likely everyone is aware of the severe ammunition shortage that shooters around the country are facing. As a […]

Youth Shooting Program Update – March 2nd, 2021

While we’re all pleased to see the decline in overall cases, hospitalizations, and of course deaths related to Covid, we are still unable to restart the program with the current social distancing restrictions that are in place. And while we are aware that there is a strong possibility that those distancing restrictions may be reduced or even eliminated in the coming weeks, we also are at a point in the year where restarting the program for this season would really be impractical. Our program always ends on the 2nd Friday of May – by the time we could get started we would likely only get a couple or three sessions in – and that doesn’t factor in the Easter break, a time when our attendance is historically light. With all of that in mind, our very strong expectation is that we will resume the regular Friday evening program in September – specifically, September 24th. We always start the fourth Friday in September and end on the second Friday in […]
