THE 2018 V.I.P. SEASON IS HERE!
(V.I.P. stands for Very Informal Pistol}
This 2018 Season’s VIP League shooters so far will be: Tim Innes, Steve McInchak, Mickey McBride, Cliff Snyder, Mike Town, Chuck Vash, and Tom Zawistoski. This team roster is by no means set in stone. Please feel free to join us. You only need to shoot once a month to record a score, or you may shoot every Wednesday. We will then record your highest score to send in for the month.
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, Black Ash, and Saegertown. Some of the teams had 10 or more shooting members. To see how well our little team is doing, check the “Scores” page elsewhere on this website.
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. We fire this course on the 50 foot Walnut Creek outdoor range on Wednesday evenings at 7 PM. Because of the weather, our first shoot will likely on Wednesday, May 2nd. We may try for a shoot on April 25th, but the weather looks questionable. The V.I.P. schedule will also be posted on the monthly events calendar on this website.
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 2018 at Black Ash. Be sure to check this site for a definite time and location.
Western New York Penn Pistol League
This is an NRA 30 round bullseye pistol course and you will be shooting the 30 round rimfire stages as well as the 30 round centerfire stages, all timed, and all stages are fired using one hand.
The Winter League shooting team is currently participating in the Western New York Penn Pistol League. Weekly scores will be posted on this website once the season starts. WE will begin the 2017-2018 season with our first shoot on Wednesday, October 18, 2017 at 7 PM on the indoor range. Doors open around 6:15 PM. There is a 2.00 range fee. There is also a league fee if you want your score posted as part of the league competition.
