Uniform:  Weather can be extreme at this range, plan appropriately - shirt, pants or shorts, sturdy shoes, hat, eye and ear protection (we have them if you don't).  Do not wear sandals or your BSA Class A shirts.  Troop shirts are fine.  We have bathrooms, water, and picnic tables for your convenience.    

Bring your own lunch, drinks, and sun block:  Be prepared for extreme weather.  

For anyone under 18 without a parent present, a signed permission slip is mandatory.  Children under 11 are allowed only with their parent.  This is NOT a BSA event, except for those working on Merit Badges.

Cost is $25 for shooters - It includes firearms, ammunition, and targets.  Non-shooters = $0 (sign up as a guest).  Bring a check made out to American Legion Post 862 (NO CASH) the day of the event.  You may bring your own firearms and ammunition.  However, if you use any of the American Legion's equipment we ask that you pay the $25 fee to help us cover maintenance expenses.  Thank you.
