Duckboat Show on Sunday the 30th, October 2016 at 09:00 AM

The SSWA fundraiser is at Governors Comedy Club - 90 Division Ave, Levittown. For info or tickets call curt at 631-661-0379

Saturday and Sunday, members of the sswa manned a booth at the gun show. They were able to recruit a few new members, and had two raffle winners - Anthony Masino and Mike Gunther. Congratulations to the winners and thank you to everyone who got tickets. Special thanks to our members Ronny, Kate, Tom (old), Steve, Tom (young) who gave up a day off to help out the club. You are the best.

The September meeting of the SSWA will be held on Tuesday, September 6th at the Brightwaters Library at 7 pm sharp.  THe Library has informed us that from this point forward, the library will be closed at 9 pm. In the past, meetings could run until 10 pm.  Because of this change, we are going to begin our meetings one half hour earlier than last year. 

We look forward to seeing you at the September meeting.



The next sporting clays shoot at Peconic will be on Sunday, August 28th, at 9:30 am.

These are only for SSWA members whose dues are PAID UP. The fee to shoot is 40 dollars per person. You must bring 100 rounds of LEAD, TARGET LOADS ONLY.  (shot sizes 7 and a half, 8 or 9). No high velocity or steel shells permitted (or you will be asked to leave). Eye and hearing protection is a must. Arrive by 9:30 at the gate. Shoots start promptly at 10. Lunch will be after the shoot. It will be either a BBQ (SSWA), Peconic cooked food, or lunch at the Triangle Pub (you will be notified when you call as to which lunch will be available and the cost, usually around  10 dollars ). You must call Curt 631-661-0379, to be placed on the list. NO WALK UPS will be allowed. We do this because we need Peconic members to accompany us around the course, so do not wait till the day before to call because we will not have enough time to round up another PRSC member.     Call today to be placed on the list.  We hope to see you there.

Sunday August 7th is the SSWA BBQ. If you are planning on coming, call curt at 631-661-0379 NO LATER THAN FRIDAY to get on the list. I need to get a head count to buy food and I cant have people calling last minute. Call NOW!!!!!!

Hi Folks,

The SSWA is holding it's 4th Annual BBQ and Picnic on Sunday August 7, from 12 to 6 pm.  Please note that the location has changed.  It will be held this year at Sears-Bellows Suffolk County Park, on 63 Bellows Pond Rd, Hampton Bays, NY 11946.  

Here is all that you need to do: 

1-   Call Curt at 631-661-0379. Give him your name and the number of IMMEDIATE FAMILY members attending.

2-    2- Mail him a check for $25.00 made out to SSWA and send to 32 Magro DR. North Babylon, NY 11703.

3-    Show up the day of BBQ and Curt will give you back your check. That's right IT'S FREE!!  ( If you don't show up, we will cash the check to pay for the food we bought that you didn't eat).  Pretty easy,  right?


 The  SSWA will supply burgers, hot dogs, etc. and we will also have soda and water available. If you wish to bring your own"beverages", feel free to do so.  Also if you have a favorite bbq dish, feel free to bring it to enhance the bbq even more.  There is a large covered Pavillion with enough Picnic tables for all of us, so only bring your own folding chair if you can’t sit on a picnic bench.

Call Curt ASAP with your info. We hope to see everyone there. It has been a great event in the past, and a good time is usually the standard of the day!
