FROM PTRC President Paul Catucci
June 4th, 2019
I don't know about you, but it's been busy for me this spring. If that's what you want to call it! Lots of things are going on at the club, the rim fire League started, and the kitchen is open every Monday night, we're getting ready for a lot of shoots this year, everything is going well at the club. The new carpeting that was approved 2 months ago will be in soon, and the storage building is almost complete by the pistol range. Montgomery County has recently accepted our class for their pistol license class. That now gives us four counties that will accept our class. I wish to thank all our volunteers that without them we could not make this happen.
Pine tree Rifle Club scholarship committee accepted five candidates this year. The candidates are John Sira, Caitlin Catucci, Seth Gifford, Gabrielle Fernandez, and Miles Anderson. Congratulations, each student will receive a check for $500.00 at our next members meeting. We also sent 4 children to DEC camp, this was all made possible with our Education Fund.
Here are a few things coming up in June and July. June 8th NRA Shotgun Class and Rifleman's Challenge 9:00AM until 12:00PM. June 16 Father's Day Fun shoot and Breakfast, starting 8:30AM, the 22lr shoot will start at 9AM and this year out shotgun ranges will be open also starting at 10AM. June 22 is the annual K-9 Ride to support the Fulton County Sheriff's K-9 Unit. Starts at 11AM, Dinner at 5PM if you don't ride but would like a dinner ticket see Paul. Dinner is just $10.00. June 23 Steel Target shooting 12-4PM. In July on the 13th the NRA Basic Pistol Class, July 17th is the Lobster Dinner, pre-sale only. $15 per ticket and this will sell out so get a ticket early. July 20th is the IBS and PTRC 100 yd shoot, July 27th is the WOT class, pre-register by calling Barb at (518)883-8605.
We are always upgrading the club and putting back into it to keep it nice. We have had some folks not appreciate what we have here and have misused the facility. If anyone sees something not right, please let your BOD know. We want to keep PTRC looking great.
Have any spare time? The same group is here every Wednesday working to keep the club great, if you can help show up.
Nick started once again collecting for the Leatherstocking Honor Flight, please help this is a great cause and we are saying goodbye to our WWII Vets way too fast.
If you can donate an item for the K-9 ride, for the Chinese Auction see Peter Tautznik, our goal this year is $12000. I know this is my last time as Co-Chair and it may be Peter's as well. Maybe next year you can take it over?
Summer will be here, next newsletter maybe we will be complaining about the heat! Please support local business, when you shop the folks on the newsletter, say thank you and tell them you saw their advertisement in our Letter. Please be safe! Have a great month! Paul
