Last night, June 3rd, the Yates County SCOPE Chapter held our second monthly members meeting for 2021.
One of the main topics discussed was the Annual SCOPE dinner in October. I am proud to say that the members of Yates County are standing tall and I want to announce that Yates County SCOPE voted and passed a motion to donate $1,000.00 directly for New York State SCOPE to be used for the cost of the Annual event.
Yates County also will be working to raise additional funds by soliciting adds in the Program, with a goal of raising an additional $1,000.00.
We are assembling a “Basket” that we will donate for the dinner to be used in the Silent Auction. We anticipate a “Basket to have a minimum value of $500.00.
I encourage all of the County Chairs of SCOPE to get an early start on work for the Annual Dinner. We are strong when we work together.
Yates County SCOPE has been a strong supporter of the New York State High School Clay Target League. In Yates County, we support three High Schools with financial donations from our chapter to offset the expenses of the families that have students involved in the shooting program. The Schools are: Dundee Central, Penn Yan Academy and Marcus Whitman Central Schools.
The Barrington Rifle Club is one of the Shooting Clubs within our County. We want to get this Tournament information out to all youth across New York State. There is nothing more important than supporting our youth.
If people have questions on the Tournament they can contact Calvin Crosby – Chairman of the Tournament at 315-521-3153.
Yates County SCOPE is supporting 3 Schools —Marcus Whitman  kids, Penn Yan  kids and Dundee  kids. They gave $1000 to each team and hope to donate more. The Bradford School is shooting with Dundee this year. Also the Naples School  kids is shooting at the Middlesex Conservation Club with the Marcus Whitman School, a very busy year!
