Welcome 2018!




We're off to an icy, snowy, start to this new year but there are plenty of upcoming events to look forward to at the Kent Rod & Gun Club in the months ahead!


As I look forward to taking the lead as club President for 2018, it's not without thanking member Kevin McGuinness for his hard work during his six year tenure as club President.  The obstacles which face any governing board of an institution or club such as ours are never easy and the accomplishments made are done only through teamwork.


We often state how our club is a working club and as we step into the celebration of our 70th Anniversary, we have only managed to remain a vital part of the Putnam County community for these many years because of member effort and participation.  As club President, I will continue to follow the path of those who came before me and stress the importance of member involvement in order to keep our club moving in a constant forward direction.


Club members are advised to check-out our 2018 Calendar of Events, which is here on our website, to stay on top of all the happenings at our club.  As always, feel free to share any thoughts or suggestions by emailing me, or our Corresponding Secretary Patty, directly at our club's email...kentrodandgunclub@gmail.com.  


My wishes to members, families and friends for a happy, healthy and prosperous 2018!


Rich Mastrobuono, President
Kent Rod & Gun Club

September Update!

Summer may be on the way out but...events at the Kent Rod & Gun Club keep rolling-in!

Everyone is looking forward to our Ladies Day at the Range on Sunday, September 17th...we are expecting an outstanding turnout for this "Girls Only" day of fun with an emphasis on education and safety throughout the day!

Our team of Certified Instructors will be ready to assist any of our guests who are preparing to process their New York State Pistol License Application and...for any lady needing assistance with a license amendment or wanting to upgrade their existing license...we will be ready to help!

The day will begin with a Welcome Breakfast, Safety Lectures, a visit from Judge James Reitz, who will address our guests, and then...a Gourmet Luncheon!  Right after, the girls will head outside for some range time and enjoy target shooting, archery and trap shooting...all under the watchful eyes of our Instructors.  And after that...dessert!  We treat our guests very well!


The best part?  Everything is completely...complimentary!

**Once again, we offer apologies to several ladies who were misled by an unauthorized, and erroneous, mention of this event on Lohud, the website of The Journal News.  Our event Chairwoman has reached out to each lady who attempted to register after the deadline and extended every courtesy so that they will be included in our September gathering.

 It is not now, and never will be, the practice of our club to have any of our club events promoted by the Gannett Newspaper chain who, in recent times, sought to publicly map the personal data of legally registered gun owners in New York State in their publications.**

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

  • Minimum score of 90" will determine the winners in each category for a cash prize...one for Gun, one for Bow.

                                  All registration will close at our October 6th meeting!  

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
