The firearms training that was planned for February has unfortunately been cancelled! We regret having to do so but changes to the curriculum by the NRA neccessitated the decison. We are still waiting for confirmation on some of the details for one of the courses.
The good news is that there will be training for Rifle, Shotgun and Blackpowder Instructors in September. These are courses for people that are 21 years old or older and have completed their Basic Courses in Rifle, Shotgun, or Blackpowder. It is currently projected to be held the weekend of September 22-24 at Camp Meriwether. The Blackpowder course will start on Friday morning so any one taking that class will need to be there Thursday night. I don’t know of anyone in the troop that has their Blackpowder Basic course done. If you have not completed a Basic course in Rifle or Shotgun and wish to take the Instructor Course please contact Jon Niehaus, Troop Committee menber, and he can assist you in completing the basic course.
I hope that the snow outing on Mt Hood is a great success!! Good luck and stay dry.
