2017 PPC Regional Match held at Monroe-Chester
The Monroe Chester Sportmen’s Club hosted the 2017 The New York Police Combat Association Regional Match on Friday, June 9 and Saturday, June 10. It was a very tight match with some very fine marksmanship turned in by a number of competitors. First Place overall winner went to club member and retired New York State Police Officer, Mike Utzig. Mike posted a very good combination score of 1456 with the revolver and 1450 with the semi auto, for a total of 2906 to take home the gold! Second place Silver went to retired NYPD Officer Steve Albanese with a combination score 2900 and third place bronze went to retired Treasury Agent Ed Tolentino who posted a score 2873.
Congrats to Mike, Steve and Ed and to all of the class winners.
Club Member Harry Bauman, who now lives in South Carolina, was assigned by the NRA as the match referee. Harry had a great time catching up with all of his NYPCA friends and Monroe Chester Members. See pics below.

Three Wood Stoves
The club has purchased three wood stoves from our friends from the Bellvale Community.
This past weekend three men from the Bellvale Community were kind enough to deliver and set up the first one in the pistol/rifle building.. One will be installed in the Archery building and the third unit will be dropped off in the Colchester building. If there is a club member who would like to earn their 5 work hours for 2017 and install the unit in Colchester please email me and let me know when and the work will be done….
Thanks, Roy Zucca, Club President.
The stove in the picture below is installed in the Rifle/Pistol Shack
