FROM PTRC President Paul Catucci
May 7th, 2018
Well, here we are into May, and we're just starting to get our spring. The club will be pretty busy this summer, if you look at the calendar on the website www.PinetreeRifleClub.Org, every weekend is full. On May 29th which is a Tuesday night we will host our first Candidates night. As you know Marc Butler will not seek reelection for our assemblyman, Marc has been a great friend and a great supporter this area. There are four men vying for the job we will meet all four of them on May 29th at 6:30 p.m. they are Phillip Lloyd Paige, Patrick Vincent, Robert Smullen, and Keith Rubino. Mike Smrtic will act as moderator, each man will speak and then you will be given the opportunity to ask a question. More details will follow through Facebook and email, or call the club the Monday night before the event and we will explain the rules to you. I would plan on getting to the club early because I would expect a big turnout.
There is a lot going on in June, check the calendar on the website. It will be a crazy busy month! The big thing will be the 9th Annual K-9 ride on June 16th @ 11:00AM. Last year we raised $9500.00 we hope to do $10,000, this year. The program would not continue without community support. If you would like to help, please let us know. You can also purchase a shirt, pin or raffle ticket to win a smart TV. All money will go to the K-9's.
On June 17th, starting at 8:00AM we will have the annual Father's Day Breakfast. Breakfast will be Breakfast Sandwiches, eggs, toast, home fries, pancakes, omelet station, bacon, sausage. This year breakfast will be just $5.00 per person children under 12 FREE. After breakfast starting at 9:00AM the range will be open for the children to shoot, bring your .22 or use ours. We will have a special button for the children who can hit the target! The 4H will also conduct a competition that all children are welcome to shoot in. This is a family friendly event and we hope to see everyone there.
The regular club suppers end this month for the summer. May 16th @ 6:30PM will be the last until September. There is no club supper in June but in July we will have our Annual Lobster Bake. The tickets will be out soon. Tickets will be limited to 200 so get them fast. The cost will be $15.00 per person, presale only, and we have put new systems in place to make sure we are ready for our guests! August 15th will be our annual chicken bbq. That event will also be presale and the cost will be just $8.00.
I cannot stress the fact you need to be informed and vote for the candidates that will protect our Constitutional Rights. Please support the NRA, they have been under fire from the gun grabbers a lot this year. We still have VOTE PINS and NRA yard signs available at cost. Please show support for the cause and YOUR CLUB.
We had 2 winners for the PTRC Scholarship this year. Junior members David Malagisi and Samuel Phetteplace will each receive $500.00. The Education account also sent 3 children to camp this year. Thanks to Peter Tautznik and all the club volunteers that help teach our class we can give back to our community!
We are always looking for help, if you can give us some time, please support your club. As you see we have a lot going on. Call the club any Monday night and set up some time. This works because of you! See Ya soon,
I thank all of you! Paul, Contact (518)6497617 or email email@example.com
