CORVID-19 Season Update

Hello Shooters, I wanted to take a moment to touch base with everyone as the shooting season has been put on hold in Pennsylvania with Governor Wolf's directive to stay at home, because of CORVID-19.
The first 3-Gun Match at Ontelaunee is scheduled for May 2nd & 3rd and our plans are steadfast to shoot the season opener; without any hitches.
However, I find it is best to plan for all contingencies, so I have taken a good look at our season and the fact that everyone is going to be itch-en to get out on the range again, and everyone will be more than likely a little rusty, not to mention getting back to work and their normal lives all at the same time.
For these basic reasons and more, and after much review and debate; I have elected to revise the 2020 Point Series to be a Best 3 out 5 matches this season. I feel this will relieve all concerns shooters may have with attending matches and allow everyone to transition back into the shooting season with more options.
I will be updating the Point Series webpage on the club's website by April 6th to reflect this change.
As to the rest of the season we see no need to make any other changes at this point, and we look forward to seeing everyone once again out on the ranges. Till then be safe and take some time to reload and do some dry fire drills.

USSL-UML Division Name Change

As everyone should know by now, the Ontelaunee 3-Gun Program has moved over to the United Shooting Sports Leagues, United Multi-Gun League's Feb 2020 match rules.
The O3GP will be putting together a VLOG in the coming weeks to go through some of the new rule changes, but for now, we want to bring everyone's attention to the Divisional name change from Tactical Optic's, to just Optic's. Because of this name change coming into effect after we had already opened registration for the season for a number of events and matches. Please note that Tactical Optic's and Optic's are the same Division when registering for upcoming matches during the season.
