2013 Outstanding Club Of The Year

The National Rifle Association (NRA), based in Fairfax, VA, has selected the Phillipsburg Pistol Club (PPC), based on an application submitted to them in November of 2013, as the NRA Outstanding Club of the Year!!!!!!!!!

The NRA requested, in their The American Rifleman monthly magazine, that an application be submitted, along with supporting documentation, to meet the quite stringent requirements requested, for consideration in the annual awarding of the Donn C. DiBiasio Outstanding Club Award for the year 2013.

The following requirements were stiff; community involvement—member participation—NRA membership strength—newsletter offerings to the Club members and the Community at large.

The PPC, established in 1961, has sponsored many events and has partnered with the Wounded Warriors, NRA Women On Target, Northampton Community College and the Civilian Marksmanship Program over the years. The Club is not only a longtime member of the Association of New Jersey Rifle and Pistol Clubs, but is also a current member of the Civilian Marksmanship Program. The Boy Scouts of America are constantly welcomed to our range for their Merit Badge workshops.

The awarding of the NRA Outstanding Club of the year Award took place on September 13th, 2014 in Arlington, VA at the annual meeting of the NRA’s Board of Directors. The award and supporting photo are proudly displayed in our clubhouse.
