Policy Change – Use of Non BSA owned ranges

There has been a major change that everyone needs to be aware of and pass on to others that may not know. Troops, Crews, Ships, currently conducting live fire shooting activities anywhere other than BSA owned property must cease their activities in accordance with the National Shooting Sports Manual. In order to conduct shooting activities on property other than BSA owned, the property owners must complete the procedures to use public or private property for a shooting sports range. This form can be found hereā€¦.Procedures to Use Public or Private Property for a Shooting Sports Range | Boy Scouts of America (scouting.org).

At the time of this email, there are no approved ranges, public, commercial, or private that have been approved for use by Occoneechee Council. However, there are a few applications pending.
