SCOUTING - RIFLERY MERIT BADGE CLINICS

South Texas Marksmanship Training Center instructors have been helping Scouts achieve
their rifle merit badges for more than 50 years. Beginning 1st-quarter 2017, STMTC will be
conducting ongoing Boy Scout Rifle Merit Badge clinics.

Once monthly, we will conduct a weekend riflery clinic.
The early portions of each clinic will be "classroom,"
providing the NRA First Steps Rifle curriculum. The First
Steps orientation shares the basic information
necessary to impart upon the Scout the knowledge
required to attain the academic portion of the badge
requirements. The second half of the clinic each day will
be marksmanship instruction and practical shooting
exercises. During this portion of the clinic, Scouts will be
coached through shooting targets appropriate to score to attain the shooting portion of the
Merit Badge. When a Scout shoots a target adequate for badge qualification, one of our
Certified Instructors will sign and date the target. When a Scout attains the required number
of scored targets, a Scout Merit Badge
Counselor--or parent--can sign off on the
Scout's Merit Badge. Though STMTC
Instructors have been Merit Badge Counselors
in the past, we no longer provide that service,
and the Scout/parent/Scoutmaster is required
to find a Counselor to do so.

STMTC's Scout Riflery Director is an NRA
Senior Training Counselor and NRA Chief
Range Safety Officer. He has been
instrumental in the past, helping the Alamo
Council acquire funds for Bear Creek shooting
activities. Our Instructors have overseen
thousands of Scouts learning to shoot over the
years--and we'd like to help you, too.

For one full day, including both the
academic and shooting activities, cost
to the Scout will be $40. The Scout will
receive NRA First Steps Rifle instruction,
and marksmanship instruction that
includes rifle, hearing protection, eye
protection, and 100 rounds of
ammunition. Range fee is an additional
$8, which goes to the range complex.

For a Scout to attend only the shooting
portion of the clinic, the cost is $25,
plus $8 range fee to the range complex.

Each Scout must have an STMTC
Release of Liability signed by a parent
for each visit. All Scouts must be
accompanied by a responsible adult
parent or guardian, or other
responsible adult with a letter signed by the parent specifically authorizing the Scout to
participate in STMTC's shooting activities.

Scout Riflery clinics will be held at our private facility on the
Black Hawk Shooting Range
complex, near Atascosa, Texas, just outside northwest San Antonio.
Clinics will occur on
alternating Saturdays and Sundays each month, except December. Consult the
STMTC
event calendar
for dates.
