2020 Range Officer Privileges

You are receiving this newsletter email because you have either attended a previous RO Workshop or volunteered to RO during a previous season at Ontelaunee for 3-Gun.

Unlike the majority of other 3-Gun matches in the area, Ontelaunee as you know runs (2) days for matches, with 6 squads each day, and as thus we need to have 12 teams of RO's for each of our monthly matches. We have been very blessed to have many of you volunteer your time in past seasons to be RO's and we thank you all for supporting the program.

In Previous seasons our Range Officer Workshop was $50.00 and then we asked each lead and second to pay $10.00 at each of your first 2 matches and nothing at the 3rd and 4th monthly match. By request this season, we changed the Workshop Cost to $73.00 and waived the entry fee for all (4) monthly matches for the season; resulting in the same cost outlay as previous seasons. Thus by attending the Range Officer Workshop and volunteering to help as an Lead or Second on a RO team; you are receiving a 50% discount on the season as compensation for volunteering.

For those of you who don't make a primary team as a lead or second and have attended and agreed to help during matches, you are considered an alternate. As an alternate, your entry is $11.00 at each of the monthly matches. We ask that you help support the lead team of RO's and If a primary team member is not able to make a match; and you are asked to serve in their place; your match fee of $11.00 would be waved for the match. As an alternate you are still receiving a match savings for the season of $30.00 by attending the Workshop and serving as an alternate at all 4 matches.

Pennsylvania State 3-Gun Championships:
Additionally, We need Range Officers, staff and setup help for the Pennsylvania State 3-Gun Championships on September 5th & 6th. Thus we require 8 lead RO's to serve 2 days as primary RO; one for each of the 8 stages; and up to 16 secondary RO's to serve on either Saturday, Sunday or both days supporting them. We also need setup help for the match during the week prior to the match on Wednesday and Thursday. We are offering the same discount as last season, which is a $50.00 per day of help from the match fee, with a maximum of (3) days of volunteering for a free match entry.

Those volunteering as staff or lead RO helping both Saturday and Sunday will shoot the match on Friday Sept. 4th. Those volunteering to help RO for Saturday or Sunday and approved, will shoot the match on the day they are not working as a volunteer.

When registering for the State Championship match and volunteering time to RO or help, check the yes box and note how many days you are committing to in the squadding comment box. (ie: RO/Both, RO/Sat, Setup-Wed, etc...)

Early Registration Codes:
All who attend the Range Officer Workshop will receive per-registration codes that will allow you to register early for each of the (4) monthly matches; approximately 3 plus weeks prior to each monthly match.

Starting in 2021: The Ontelaunee 3-Gun Program is working towards showing more of our appreciation for those of you who have committed to volunteering your time as Range Officers and attended past and future Range Officer Workshops here at Ontelaunee. For the 2021 season and going forward; those of you that have earned 3 years of consecutive service by attending our Range Officer Workshops; will have your attendance fee waived for the 2021 Range Officer Workshop and if you serve as a lead or second in 2021 your monthly match fee's will also be waived. For your continued loyalty and volunteer support of the 3-gun program at Ontelaunee; we are working to reward those of you that continue to support the program going forward. It is our way of thanking those of you that continue to support the program each year.
