Late last year the Athletic Department told us that we no longer could operate in a fund raising capacity for the Rifle Program any more.  We can no longer operate with dues paying members and that these changes are to be immediate.

Our latest newsletter covers this in detail, along with some ideas on how we could proceed.

If you are interested with or have feed back on the concepts please let us know.

 

December 16, 2016

We moved to our new site, this has been in the works for some time.

However, it comes as the Athletic Department has told us to suspend operations related to fund raising on behalf of the program.  More details are to come on the impacts of this change.  As of now we cannot accept new members and have to turn over all existing monetary and physical assets to the Athletic Department.

Date change for the WVU match, we had an original date for Saturday October 22, 2016 that has changed to Sunday October 23rd. The programs realized that they had conflicting dates and have resolved the scheduling issue. The match will begin at 9am, and will finish up around lunch time. We will be catering a tailgate lunch for the programs and spectators so please RSVP to club@osurifle.org.

 

Tailgating

 

Those of you on our mailing list are aware that we were planning on hosting a tailgating event this season. We have decided to host the event during the home match with the reigning national champions WVU on Saturday October 23, 2016. We would like to encourage you to come out and support the team as they take on WVU. This match happens to be parents weekend, so it will be an opportunity to come out and watch the match and meet many of the parents of the current team.

Range improvement project

As part of the ongoing upgrades to the range the booster club has offered to raise the $1,500 to replace the monitors on the range that are used with the electronic targets to improve the spectator experience. This will make it easier to see from the spectator areas in the office and the new window wall installed in the classroom. If you are interested in donating to the monitor project you can donate thru the booster club or OSU has an online donation option for the program.

After entering the NCAA sectionals in 7th place the team fired a new team record of 4685. The official selection will happen 5pm on Thursday February 25, 2016, however we believe that they have earned an invite and would like to in courage supporters to start planning on making a trip to Akron March 9-12.
