21st Annual Shooting Campout at Mr. Raney's Ranch, April 10-12

Posted on Mar 26 2015 - 3:24pm

Join us for a fun-filled weekend of skeet shooting at former T1001 scoutmaster, Mr. Ken Raney's Quail Alley Ranch near Breckenridge, TX (map has GPS coordinates of ranch). Scouts will compete to see who can shoot the most clay targets, always with one-on-one supervision. This is definitely a favorite campout year after year. Scouts can also explore the ranch and fish in Mr. Raney's well-stocked ponds.

Please, sign up online and bring a signed permission slip along with $15 (cash, exact change) for patrol food to Money Monday's meeting on April 6. If you have a change of plans (cannot attend or will arrive Sat morning, etc.) after signing up, please let Mrs. Summerfelt (outdoorprogram@troop1001.org) and your patrol leader know as late as Friday afternoon of campout departure.

Scouts should be at the church parking lot no later than 5:30 p.m. on Friday, March 20th in Field uniform (formerly referred to as Class A). Don't forget your sack dinner. The troop should return about 2:00 p.m. on Sunday, April 12th at the hospital parking lot across Campbell Road.

Adults: This has always been a popular campout to attend so that you can do some shooting too! Please sign up online, either just to drive (2 hr 45 min) or drive and camp with us. Past campouts have always had extra special evening meals and, of course, a cobbler/dessert cook-off. Please let Amy Summerfelt know by Wednesday, April 8, if you can drive.

The adult patrol and our guests facilitate and serve as a model for the scouts' camping activities in our boy-led troop.

Join us for a week of fun June 14-20... sign up for Summer Camp during Monday's Troop meeting! Due to schedule changes this month, the initial sign-up and payment due dates have been extended. Reserve your spot today! The first payment is $170. You can use your Scout account, or bring cash/check with you to the meeting. 

The first 8 adults to register for Summer Camp get to go free of charge! We need your help at camp, adults, so we are rewarding the first 8 to make the commitment. Stay for the whole week or split it with a friend. Regardless, our boys cannot go to camp alone. Besides, Camp Hale has lots to offer us 'big kids' as well. From leader-specific training to water rescue and wilderness first aid, you can brush up on your skills and certifications or just relax and enjoy the beautiful Winding Stair Mountains. Spend a week with your Scout and his friends...you'll be glad you did! 

More details to come as we get closer to June. If you have any questions, please contact our Summer Camp Coordinator, Mr. Otte, either via e-mail at trey@otte.us or via cell phone at 214-402-4718. See you at Summer Camp!
