Written By Cliff Snyder
Walnut Creek Rifle Club Winter League for the 2016/2017 season has a pistol team made up of some of the finest in the country. This team shoots during the winter months in the NY Penn League. The team members are Mickey McBride, Cliff Snyder, Tim Innes, Steve McInchak, Mike Town, Anna Kosenko, John McInchak and Duane Regelman. The 2016-2017 NY Penn League has been shooting for score on Wednesday evenings since October 19, 2016 at 7 PM at the indoor range at Walnut Creek. Anyone still interested in being on the pistol team for the rest of the season is welcome to come out and join the team.
Last season’s VIP League shooters were Tim Innes, Anna Kosenko, Steve McInchak, Cliff Snyder, Mike Town, and Tom Zawistoski, and Caelan Knapp.
The VIP League was the inspiration of John Holt, a probation officer from Meadville. His vision was to have competition that would be easy for beginners, wanting to make it enjoyable. In addition to the Walnut Creek team, there were teams from Cambridge Springs, Albion, Edinboro, Meadville and Saegertown. Some of the teams had 10 or more shooting members.
The V.I.P. course is a 15 round course fired in three timed stages, first using rimfire pistols and then using centerfire pistols. In this course you may use one hand or two hands.
From April through August we sent scores once a month to the secretary of the league. There will be an all team match most likely in September of 2017 at Black Ash. Be sure to check this site for a definite time and location.
As of June 30, 2016, Walnut Creek came in first place in April and June, outscoring Albion, Black Ash, Saegertown, and Springs R & G. Walnut Creek came in 4th place in May. Watch for the 2016 scores when they become available in August under team scores on this website.
Western New York Penn Pistol League
