The Western New York Pyrotechnic Association was formed in October of 1992 and incorporated as a not-for-profit organization in 1995. It is composed of shooters from various companies, distributors, manufacturers, importers, display company owners, and people who "just love Fireworks". Our main objectives are to teach, to learn and to have fun, safely. Our meetings are held the second Thursday of the month, usually in Orchard Park, NY. Following the business (boring) part of the meeting, we will have a guest speaker, view videos, or have a learning workshop. In addition to the meetings, we have 2 or 3 family picnics each year at a private remote location where you can bring all the toys you want, or just kick back and enjoy. The club also does a few "not-for-profit" shows each year. Members also receive at least 9 newsletters a year. Any non-member who submits an article that gets published will receive that newsletter.
