Top Shot Challenge

Event Details

Who:  Registered Scouts and other individuals aged from 8 to 20 years of age.

Cub Scouts and youth aged 8 to 11 years old are invited to come for the day and enjoy exploring Camp Babcock-Hovey.  These individuals will be allowed to participate in archery.  In order to participate in BB-gun shooting individuals must be at least 10 years old.  This group will only be shooting for fun.  No prizes will be awarded.

Boy Scouts, Varsity Scouts, Venturing Scouts, Explorers, Sea Scouts and those participants aged 12 years old to 20 years old are invited for the day to either compete in the Top Shot competition or to cheer on the competitors and enjoy other program offerings.

Adults: are not eligible to compete, but are encouraged to help at the ranges or with the program offerings.  If time permits adults that volunteer and help out in some way may be allowed to participate at a particular range.

What: During the morning there will be an open shoot at all of the ranges.  In the afternoon scored competition will commence.  Each competitor will get one session at each range for scoring.  Each range will have a maximum score of 100 points for a grand total of 500 possible points for the competition.

There will be two categories in terms of the competition.  Individuals aged 12 year to 15 years old and those who are 16 years old to 20 years old.
