Welcome Cayuga Scouts & Scouters

Covering Cayuga County and Red Creek,

Cayuga County District

encompasses the area of the former Cayuga County Council.

Welcome to Cayuga County District

Named after the Cayuga Indian Tribe. A wandering nomadic
tribe, having traveled around the northeast, never having a permanent
settlement, the Cayuga Indians came to the area of New York in the
1500’s. They were known as fierce warriors, who forced the Huron and
Algonquians, (the original tribes of New York), out of this territory.
As the early colonists arrived in North America searching for a better
way of life, the Indians and colonists shared ideas and knowledge.

IF YOU ARE A NEW LEADER OR A SEASONED LEADER AND YOU NEED TRAINING PLEASE CONTACT mdamazyn@aol.com. WHEN YOU DO SO PLEASE LET ME KNOW WHAT TRAINING IS NEEDED, SO I CAN HAVE THE PROPER MATERIALS. I CANNOT SET ANYTHING UP UNLESS I KNOW WHAT IS NEEDED.

 

 

For those interested in becoming range masters for the cub scout shooting sports, here is your opportunity to get certified. Pleases read below or on the attached document to find out how.

WHAT – BSA BB and Archery Range Master Training.

WHO – Registered Scouters 18 years old or older with an interest in volunteering to support Council shooting sports programs.

WHEN – 9 May 2015.  Sign in begins at 8:30AM.  Training begins at 9:00AM and should be completed no later than 3:30PM.  Bring your own lunch, drinks, etc

WHERE – Camp Woodland, Constanta, NY

HOW – BB Training will be conducted by a National Camping School  certified Shooting Sports Director/NRA certified rifle instructor.

Archery training will be conducted by a USA Archery certified  Basic/Level 1 Instructor.

All training will be conducted In Accordance With the BSA National Shooting Sports Manual and will concentrate on teaching the hands-on skills needed to supervise a safe range according to BSA rules and regulations.

Volunteers who complete the training and support at least one event stated below will be issued a BSA pocket training card good for 2 years and will be qualified to run Council approved BB gun, archery, sling shot, tomahawks, catapults and other shooing device ranges. (Discipline specific NRA training and certification is required to supervise air rifle, rifle, shot gun, and pistol shooting).

All that attend this course are required to work as a shooting sports staff member for one of the following: Council Family Camp, Resident Camp, Day Camp, District or council events coordinated through shooting sports committee. You will not receive your training card until working as a range master at one of these events.

WHY – Current, trained and certified Range masters are necessary to run BSA BB gun, archery, sling shot, tomahawks, catapults and other shooing device ranges.  Because Longhouse Council is offering this training, at no charge, to help insure that we have enough trained people to support our Council shooting sports program, Range Masters will be expected to volunteer for at least 3 events yearly.

REGISTRATION – To register, please email your name, district and contact info to Shon Montgomery at crewadvisor13@gmail.com. Prior registration is required. We are unable to accept unregistered walk-ins the day of the training.

Leaders please pass this on to all your leaders in your unit.
