Classroom portion if needed Sept 21 – Register HERE
Hosted by Troop 4306 and the Tri-City Gun Club of Goldsby, OK, on October 4-6.
You can complete the range qualification for the Rifle and Shotgun merit badges at this camp. See Mr. Hetzel in advance to confirm that he has your partial blue card. If you’ve shot .22 Rifle for qualification previously and have a target with one or more qualifying groups signed by the instructor, bring it with and receive credit towards completion of the MB.
If you need to complete the classroom courses there will be a session for each MB in McKinney prior to the camp, Sat Sept 21 Register HERE. You can’t shoot for the MB without attending the class in advance. If you already have the MBs then just come out and shoot! Adults can shoot if there’s time after all of the Scouts are finished.
Activities include .22 Rifle, Shotgun, Muzzle Loading, Archery, Air Rifle, Slingshot, Orienteering and Wildlife Identification. There will also be a Dutch Oven desert competition on Saturday evening that each of our patrols will enter (including you Bears). There will be first, second and third place individual awards for each shooting sport activity plus a first place award to the top orienteering team. There will also be a non-denominational devotional on Sunday morning. Arrival at the shed is estimated to be at 1:30pm on Sunday.
We’ve been asked to assist with the First Aid station. Volunteers with the First Aid MB are needed and each Scout will only work the station for a short period of time.
Cost is only $35.00 for Scouts and $15.00 for adults. Lunch with entertainment on Saturday will be provided by Troop 4306. Scouts will receive a Release form in advance that MUST be signed by a parent or guardian in order for you to shoot. Adults attending must also complete the form.
We’ll depart from the church promptly at 5:30pm on the 4th. We need to leave on time since the gate will close at 9:30pm.
Please register and pay by September 16th, as the event requires advance reservations. Contact Mr. Hetzel at 708-710-5935 or at Troop meetings if you have any questions.
