FROM PTRC President Paul Catucci
January 7, 2019,
Hello All and Happy New Year,

Goodbye to 2018, we had a great year. The club is doing better than ever and it is all thanks to everyone who gives us the effort to make and keep it the best in NYS! We got a lot of major projects done and will continue to improve our club.

The annual raffle tickets are out! If you can help us and sell some tickets or would like a special number contact Paul Christman. His email address is The last several years we have been lucky to sell all 1000 numbers and max out the profit and have a winner every night in August. The tickets are the same as last year based off the NYS Lottery 3 digit number. The cost is $20 per ticket with 31 chances to win. You can win as many times during the month your number comes out! If you win on an even number day you get a choice of $300 or a gift card from Runnings for $450, if you win on an odd number day you win $300. We will also run the contest for sellers, if you sell the most tickets you win $200, everyone that sells 60 tickets or more gets free dues for 2020. Support your club.

We have space available for ads in the newsletter. The small ad is just $25 per year, large are $50. The ads appear on our website as well as the newsletter to our 1350 members! Contact Steven at his email
