I wanted to let you know about a fantastic event that Circle Ten is having for your shooting sports enthusiasts! The Inaugural Junior Sporting Clay Invitational will be held on June 2nd at Camp WIsdom and this is your opportunity to create teams from your units that can participate in this awesome competitive event.


Each team needs 2 adults and 4 shooters.


Scouts will have the opportunity to attend a fun-filled day of shooting at a Circle Ten Council camp, to enjoy some comradery, fellowship and competition. In teams of four, shooters will participate in a sporting clay tournament with ten different stands to shoot from. These will be set up throughout Camp Wisdom. Light breakfast and lunch will be provided!


Youth participants must either be: 1) a registered member of a Scouts BSA Troop or a Venture Crew, or 2) at least 11 years of age. Teams must be accompanied by two adults over the age of 21, preferably with shooting sports experience.

HELP NEEDED

We are looking for BB and Archery Range Masters for Twilight Camp. If you are certified, please consider helping out-even if you aren't associated with a Pack!


Flag Retirement

McKinney Fire Department has a large amount of retired flags that they would like us to pick up and properly dispose of. Which Troop would like to help them out? They’re looking for this bulk pick up now and then a regular pickup for future (apparently they get quite a bit). Please let me know which Troop and I’ll connect you with them.
