Purpose of the Great Salt Lake Council Shooting Sports Committee:
Shooting Sports Events are some of the safest and most desired activities of boys of all ages.
For many boys the only time they get to shoot BB Guns, Archery, Rifles or other firearms is at BSA events and camps.
As BSA leaders we need to provide a safe environment with experienced and well-trained leaders to teach
and supervise boys in firearms safety, marksmanship, and the enjoyment of shooting sports activities.
To do the Great Salt Lake Council Shooting Sports Committee and the District Shooting Sports Committees
need to provide shooting sports events on a regular basis for all boys in Scouting including Cubs, Boy Scouts,
Varsity Scouts, and Ventures.
Events may include shooting activities at every Council and District event, Cub BB Gun days,
BSA Shooting Merit Badge weekend events, Varsity Big Event, Venture Ranger Award, Venturing Cowboy Action Shoot,
NRA Shooting Days, Turkey Shoots, Summer Camp shooting, and other opportunities.
