** Monday, Sept. 19, 2022 … Divide New York presentation by the Regional and local Divide New York representatives at 7:00 PM at the Bath Rod & Gun Club. This proposed concept and legislation of three autonomous units within NY State has never been more relevant than as of July 1st when Albany passed such draconian gun laws giving the middle finger to the U. S. Supreme Court and their landmark decision forcing NY from a “may issue” to a “shall issue” State regarding pistol permitting.
** Misc. Updates:…. July 23, 2022… The Steuben County SCOPE Booth was an important and profitable addition to the “Smoke in the Valley BBQ Competition and Music Festival” in Canisteo. Thanks to those of you ( Don, Rod, Geo., Scott) that manned the tables and got to sample BBQ prepared by chefs in a 60 mile radius (with one from Buffalo). We plan to participate again next year !
