News & Recent Events


There have been quite a few questions about new members and the need to work off their 8 hour obligation. Ted Scherick has written a small note to help answer your questions. Click here to read it.

Speaking of work hours, there is a work party this Saturday, June 14th! Help is needed with moving stone on the outdoor pistol range. Please bring rakes and shovels. This is a great time to work off some of your 8 hours if you're a new member. Please be at the club by 9AM.


The rifle range will be closed at 5PM on Wednesday June 11th in order to accomodate the pistol league shoot. The pistol range is unavailable due to a delivery of stone.


The Club bylaws changes were voted in at the June meeting. Look here to see the updated Club bylaws.


New events -

  • Friday night trap shoot is now open, every Friday from 6-10PM. This event is open to the public and runs through the end of September.
  • HELP NEEDED!! - This Sunday, June 10th, there will be the invitational .22 shoot. We need assistant range officers who will help the shooters and assist the RANGE OFFICER in running the range for the shoot. This would be a good time for the new members to work off some of their 8 hour obligation. If you can help, please show up at the club around 1:30PM. Thank you in advance for your help!
  • LOOKING FOR VOLUNTEERS - Volunteers needed to help stain the buildings this summer. Dates to be determined. If you are a new member, this is another good way to work off your 8 hours obligation. Contact President Joe Kopacz if you're interested at 518-813-7024.
  • As always, check the calendar or the MRGC Facebook Page for the most current info and events.


    The new pistol range behind the meeting room is open for use. The roofing was completed today and the only thing we will be doing in the future is putting down crusher run stone dust to make the range smoother like on the rifle range.

    On the new pistol range, any caliber handgun and rim fire rifles only. (No Center Fire Rifles)

    Special thanks goes to all those that helped put this project together. The Officers, Board of Directors and the Membership for approving this project. Mark Mazzella for bringing this project idea to the club and the spring raffle that helped pay for most of the construction. Ted Schreieck for getting the excavator work, stone, roofing steel and spring raffle help. Jim Cooke for taking on the construction of the cement pad and roof overhang. P. Hall for bringing his machine over to do the drainage ditch and spread all the stone and shale on the range. All members that helped out with the construction, raffle ticket sales and purchases. All those that participated and supported our pistol competition shoots.


    There is a club work day coming up on Saturday, June 2nd at 9:30AM.

    The work day will be for help put a tin roof on the new pistol range pavillion, putting up shevling inside, and to clean up the range so it is ready for use. If you have a 10ft ladder, please bring it with you. If you have a power screwdriver/drill, please bring it with you also. We can provide the bits.

    This would be an excellent time for new members to get in their required 8 hours of work owed to the Club. Hope to see you there!

    If you have any questions, please contact Ted Scheireck at (518) 827-5057.

    To all the members... I'd like to say... your Club... is something to be proud of. Our youth programs are second to none. Our support of Law Enforcement is evident. Indeed, our involvement with Boy Scouts, Girl Scounts, 4H, and Camp Colby, DEC Youth Camp...is what we take pride in. The connection we have to our community is strong and appreciated. Your Executive Committee and Executive Board are dedicated and motivated to move this outstanding organization forward with public events, as well as scheduled supervised shoots. I would like to thank each member for their continuing support of the Club and look forward to a productive year ahead.
