Having fun in the snow? You could come check out one of the many Winter Leagues offered at the Club (check the website for details). Currently there are Rifle, Skeet, and Trap Leagues.
Normally at this time of year our Pistol and Rimfire Leagues would be in full swing in the Indoor Range. Keep watch for details on those leagues after the Indoor Range opens.
The indoor Pistol Range is getting close to shooting condition. Our “target” for the first orientation would be after the February 14, 2018 membership meeting (bring your Valentine!). This is assuming there are no delays or interruptions in the work. After that Orientation, it is our intent to have other time slots available for Indoor Range Orientation with multiple instructors.
Stay warm, shoot straight, and see you on the line.

This time of year, with the increased snowfall, many walkers are on the access driveway to our club. Please remember that this is a PUBLIC DRIVEWAY owned by the town of Camillus. The public has a right to be there. Please be courteous. This is an easy way to increase our good public image.
Please remember that pistol re-certification for NYS is due on January 31st. If your pistol permit is more than 5 years old, you must recertify with the State Police.
