DISCIPLINES: IPSC,Pistol & RifleDISCIPLINES: Sporting Clays, Trap, RifleDISCIPLINES: Sporting Clays,
ACTIVITIES: USPSA Chief Range Officer,NRA Pistol Instructor, Member United States Practical Association/IPSC, National Rifle Association, New York State Pistol & Rifle Association, Shooters Committee On Political Education. ACTIVITIES: Finance Committee Chairman. Volunteer for all major shootsACTIVITIES: Employee of RB 2007-2018. Club Activities: I have been a member of Rochester Brooks for 27 years. My primary interest is Sporting Clays, although I do shoot some skeet, trap, and use the pistol bays and rifle range from time to time. I have been an active volunteer for all of my years of membership, working nearly every Sporting Clays shoot from the very early days of my membership. I can recall working the Spring Shoot, before there was a Spring Deuce, and have worked on every single Deuce from the beginning through this past year. In 2006 I retired from Kodak, and in 2007 I became an employee of the club. I started as a trapper, and after two years began setting targets for all of our clays shoots. I worked with Roger Brooks and others for the next nine years as a target setter, and was responsible for all course preparation prior to the clays shoots, as well as overseeing field operations for every single registered shoot we held. I also set targets for Hunter’s Tour, the Boy Scout shoot, and many corporate shoots. In September of 2018 I retired as a regular employee, although I continue to help with clays shoots as a volunteer to this day. I have also worked every skeet event that the club has held from 2007 through this year. Here again I started as a trapper, but after two years moved on to trap mechanic, again working in partnership with Roger Brooks in this capacity. I served on the Board of Directors for six years, I believe from 2004-2010, but I may be off on those specific years. I was also President of the New York Sporting Clays Association for 13 years.
PRESENT & FUTURE INITIATIVES: During my 30 year association with Rochester Brooks Gun Club I have been involved with the original pistol range construction, and the continued growth and improvements. I have served on the Board Of Directors for three terms, as well assisting with our monthly IPSC and Steel Challenge Matches. Rochester Brooks is a premier shooting facility with options for firearm owners to enjoy variety of sport shooting. If elected I will work to represent all members of Rochester Brooks, regardless of their favored shooting sport, including casual shooting members who do not participate in formal matches or events. PRESENT & FUTURE INITIATIVES: Road repair, renovation of shed in sporting clays out back, renovation of Hickory Ridge Course, explore permanent shooting stations PRESENT & FUTURE INITIATIVES: As I hope the above summary describes, I am very active in the clay target shooting sports, have worked in a variety of capacities at RB, from the entry levels requiring difficult manual labor in all weather conditions, to more demanding work in regards to target setting, and managing large shoots from a field operations perspective, as well as the long and arduous days necessary to successfully run major skeet shoots. I hope to bring this prior experience to the Board to assist in the important decisions we must make to insure Rochester Brooks continues as one the premier gun clubs in the northeast.
