New Complex Provides Enhances Shooting Opportunities Link to article: http://www.newspressnow.com/sp... 130427_outdoors_fire#C6D302
The shooting complex at Camp Geiger provides a state-of-the-art opportunity for outdoor enthusiasts to partake in the disciplines of sporting clay and 5-stand. Ken Baker and Rick Haman, long time scouters– are working together as managing partners at the Geiger Shooting Range at the Wes Remington Shooting Complex. The complex offers both the Pony Express Council of the Boy Scouts and the community with the opportunity to participate in the shooting disciplines of sporting clay and 5-stand. D. L. Miller laid out the design concept of the course located in St. Joseph in 2009.
The proceeds from all shoots go directly into the operating costs of continuing and aiding in the expansion of the Boy Scout program in northwest Missouri. It was built first and foremost to provide a new dynamic outdoor program for our scouting community who utilize Camp Geiger during summer camp as well as around the year. It is however a resource available to the entire community.
Each year, 2,000 Boy Scouts and their leaders come to Camp Geiger during the summer months of June and July. The Boy Scouts utilize the complex to earn their shooting sports merit badges. During that time, they are instructed on the proper handling of firearms.
The sporting clay and 5-stand course is also used as a resource for other outdoor groups such as hunter education courses and by providing a facility for training courses.
Sporting clays began in the United States in 1989 as a way to simulate hunting scenarios with clay targets which differs this discipline from trap and skeet.
The National Sporting Clay Association oversees the regulations of the sport. Only a shotgun with an 8 oz. shot can be used during the sport. This smaller shot provides an extra safety measure while shooting. The maximum shot size that can be used for any clay target discipline is a 7 ½ oz. shot.
The sporting clay course at Camp Geiger is composed of 24 electronic machines with 12 shooting stations that have two shooting presentations. The course is set for 50 - 100 clays and requires two to four boxes of shells to complete.
The discipline of 5-stand is composed of five stations with six to eight clay target throwing machines placed at various locations. Each of the stations has a menu that tells the individual what target from that page they are aiming to shoot. The discipline requires using a box of shells. This is accomplished by shooting five shots at each of the five stands.
The 5-stand at Camp Geiger is located on a deck that is built over a ravine. The individual shoots off the deck that is 14 feet wide and 70 feet long. To review the regulations of the discipline of sporting clays visit the website for The National Sporting Clay Association at www.nssa-nsca.org.
