Season Opener Postponed

May 2nd & 3rd Season Opener

Hello Shooters,
As much as it pains me, this coming weekend's season opener for May 2nd & 3rd is being Postponed due to the Red Status for Pennsylvania's Northeast Region.
Anyone who has registered and paid for the May match already will be receiving an email about their entry fee being applied to the June match in a few days. If you registered for the May Match and either did not pay for the match or was not sent an invoice. You need to do nothing at this point. We will be opening up Junes registration early in an effort to get everyone's entry moved over that already paid for May.
I am working on a replacement date for the May match and will have it ironed out before the next match in June, hopefully sooner than that.
To keep everyone up to date we will be sending out bi-monthly newsletters going forward this year. I will also be doing short VLOG updates on the Otelaunee 3-Gun Youtube Channel between now and Memorial Day Weekend for the June match, PA State Championships, Point Series and the new May match date.
As we move forward through the rest of the season we will be working to make this transition back to normal hopefully before the 4th of July. We look forward to seeing everyone once again out on the ranges very soon.

April 2020 Preseaon Vlog-01 Part 1 of 3

Welcome to the 2020 Ontelaunee 3-Gun Vlog Series

As we get into the new season this year we are going to be doing a bunch of video recording at each of the matches and putting together match re-cap highlights, shooter stage runs, match finishes and Point Series leader board standings.
Also, I want to take a brief moment to point out that I will be using a drone this season to get those stage runs from above. I stress, please don't shoot down my new bird in the sky; Not sure of the penalty yet, but a DQ seems to be way to kind.....
Besides my own recordings at each match, I am hoping that some of you fine folks will also be sending in links to your own channels to pull footage from.
The Vlog effort is being done not only to recap each match as we go through the season, but also to help expand peoples knowledge of the sport of 3-Gun in our multi-state area while helping to thank our sponsors with acknowledging them in a medium with long term exposure. Remember to be Kind as I am a rookie on the video medium and hope to hit half my lofty goals with this new program this season...Stay Tuned!!!!!
