Announcing the first ever Pacific Skyline Council Shooting Sports Weekend!  The Shooting Sports Committee is hosting a weekend packed with shooting sports activities.

Scouts will be placed in groups of 10 and rotate through 8 stations and do the following:

Certified and experienced instructors will conduct safety briefings, supervise all activities, and provide expert instruction.

This is an amazing opportunity to experience a wide variety of shooting sports in a safe and fun outdoor environment. This event is limited to 80 Scouts so make sure you sign up early!

Note: All Scouts must fill out the California Rifle and Shotgun Parental/Legal Guardian Permission Form.  No form, no shooting.
