Troop Shoot 2022

Troop Shoot 2022 

We have an action-packed weekend coming up quickly on Saturday, October 29 with the annual Troop Shoot. This is a great opportunity for our Scouts to learn and practice safe use and handling of Rifle and Shotgun. It's also a great time for older Scouts on the Shotgun Range. We usually end up having some pretty fierce competition between the Scouts and even some adults!

Required Safety Presentation

Mr. Oliveira will cover firearm safety at the next two Troop meetings on Monday, October 17 and 24 from 7:00-8:30pm at the Holy Cross Parish Center. All who will be at the Range for Troop Shoot must attend one of the safety presentations.


Sleep in a tent under the stars at the Tulip Point campsite, or rent a rustic cabin for your family with a wood burning stove just steps from the Salt Fork for $40 for the weekend. Let us know if you would like a cabin.

Come for all or some of the fun, but be sure to RSVP o
r email Scoutmaster West by Monday, October 24.
