This past week we held our third gathering of Shooting Sports volunteers and have been impressed by our group showing growth each month!
We are excited to announce that coming out of this meeting we are scheduled to host 3 events for our volunteers and the date of our next meeting is set.
- Cub Scout Range Master Training: November 21st, 6:30 pm until finished, at McGimsey Scout Park. This training will allow you to open and run a range at a Cub Scout District or Council Level event. We have multiple events on the calendar that need more volunteer support to provide a quality shooting program for our Cub Scouts and this is how you do it. Attend this course, then let us know you are available to help at an event. This training is good for 2 years. Cost is Free! https://mycouncil.alamoareabsa.org/Event/10664
- USA Archery Level 1 Training: January 4th, 8 am to 5 pm, at McGimsey Scout Park. This certification allows you to open an archery range. The Level 1 Archery Instructor Certification Course provides graduates the necessary tools to maintain a high level of safety both on and off the archery range and ensures that minimum standards for archery instruction are consistently taught to provide for the safety and enjoyment of the participants, instructors, and spectators. The Level 1 Instructor will learn about range safety, range setup, the steps of shooting, equipment and repair, programs and lesson plans. Cost is $50 and includes training materials and lunch: https://mycouncil.alamoareabsa.org/Event/106654
- BEAST FEAST 2020 (Open Shoot Event): This is our annual open shooting event held at Bear Creek Scout Reservation. This event is open to Scouts BSA, Venturing, Sea Scouts and adults who want to come out, camp, relax, and have a great time shooting. Friday evening will be check in and fellowship, Saturday will be all day shooting, and Sunday will end with a Scouts’ own service, clean up and check out. The equipment and ammunition is provided, but ya’ll provide your own food. We will offer Archery, Shotgun, Rifle, Black Powder and the Cowboy Action Shooting Range.
