Range masters should use this form to request shooting sports equipment for a district or council event.

Cub Scouts can shoot BB gun rifles, slingshots, and archery at a council or district event, but not at a unit event.

A copy of the certification for each range master (must meet BSA requirements) must be attached to this submission form before requests can be considered. A maximum of four documents (.doc, .docx, .zip, .pdf) can be submitted. If the documents are over 10 MB, please compress (zip) them.

New:  Cub Scout bows are for Cub Scouts only; not for Boy Scouts or adults. When an adult or Boy Scouts uses a Cub Scout bow, it stresses the bow.  It also damages the arrows because a Cub Scout range firing line is closer to the target; the extra velocity tears up the bows. Do not allow Boy Scouts or adults to shoot the Cub Scout bows.

Quartermaster Equipment

Important: The event chair will request quartermaster equipment (e.g., barricade fencing, targets, t-post, t-post driver, tables, small parking cones for quivers) from the council quartermaster team when they place the order for the district or council event. Contact your event chair to request any needed equipment.
