FATHERS' DAY KIDS FISHING DERBY:

It was a beautiful day for fishing! A front was coming through and the fish were biting like crazy. We had 35 entries and lots of Dads and Moms and Grandparents. Much fun was had by all!

10 GUN RAFFLE:

I encourage you to purchase a couple of these tickets for a chance to win a brand new rifle, shotgun or cash. Pictures of the guns are on our website and our Facebook page. This is the club's biggest fundraiser for the year and if you would like tickets to sell to your friends please contact Claude @ 518-891-3580 or Dave @ 518-891-5989 or Theresa @ 518-891-4505. The picnic and ticket drawing this year is on September 6th from Noon to 4 PM. I hope to see a lot of you there.

GUN SHOW:

We are going to have our Summer Gun Show on July 19 and 20 this year. There will be no Masonic Flea Market to go along with it. If any of you members want to set up “Yard Sale “ tables on the range area you are welcome to. We are not limiting the Yard Sale to club members. Al Fuller is in charge of this event and would like help from anyone interested. Call him at 518-201-4018 or 518-534-2169.

TRAP SHOOTING:

Spring has sprung and the clay birds are a flying once again. Sooo, come on down to the club on Thursday late afternoons and join in the fun. Tell your friends that all are welcomed. You don't need to be a member to shoot. Our system is voice activated and works extremely well.

NEW MEMBERS:

Welcome new and returning members! Nick Lansing, Owen Hardy, Alan Wright, Richard Wright, Thomas Dick, and Henry Graves, Jr.

SPORTERIFLE:

We will be practicing on Monday evenings between now and September. Come on to the club and shoot with us. We are always looking for new shooters. Please call team captain Charlie Marshall at 891-6018 or email him at ckmarshall@adelphia.net for more info.

S.A.F.E. ACT UPDATE:

The legislature is off for the Summer without doing much in the way of new gun laws. However the SAFE ACT remains. Keep fighting for a full repeal. The club received a permit from the NYS Police to order ammo by mail and I tried to order some. Because the law is so convoluted the dealers out there still won't ship to anyone but an FFL.
