Written By Tom Zawistoski
THE 2019 V.I.P. SEASON IS HERE!
(V.I.P. stands for Very Informal Pistol}
The team captain for the 2019 season is Tom Zawistoski. Questions about the V.I.P. League Shoot? Call Tom Zawistoski at 814-323-1762 or 814-825-9130. Note: Leave a brief message, or I will not return your call.
This 2019 Season’s VIP League shooters so far will be: Tim Innes, Steve McInchak, Cliff Snyder, Mike Town, Chuck Vash, Marge Zawistoski, 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. 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 in September of 2019 at Black Ash to see which club gets to take the rubber chicken home until next season. Be sure to check this site for any last minute changes.

Western New York Penn Pistol League
This is an NRA 30 round bullseye pistol course and you will be shooting the 30 round rim fire stages as well as the 30 round center fire stages, all timed, and all stages are fired using one hand.
NOTE NOTE NOTE NOTE
The Walnut Creek Winter League shooting team is currently NOT participating in the Western New York Pa Pistol League. Due to the fact that we have no heat on the indoor pistol range, this season’s participation in the winter league has been cancelled. The club (in September) received a $29,000.00 estimate to install a proper air handling system in the indoor range. The officers and directors voted down the proposal. Their reasoning was that this was too much money to spend for the small group of members who use the range on Tuesdays from October to April.
WE WERE THE FUSILIERS. PERHAPS IN THE NEAR FUTURE WE MAY FINALLY GET AN AIR HANDLING SYSTEM FOR THE INDOOR RANGE. THEN WE WILL BE ABLE TO RESTART OUR WINTER PISTOL TEAM ON WEDNESDAYS AT 7 PM.
If and when the winter pistol team gets going again, the new team captain will be Tom Zawistoski. For more information or to voice your displeasure about this turn of events, you can contact treasurer Tom Zawistoski at 814-323-1762 or at email@example.com. You can also come to our regular monthly meetings on the second Thursday of the month at 7 PM at the club house (except for July and December) to speak with the officers and directors.
