Shooting for Scouting

Over 110 local hunters, sportsmen and this shooting team from Thomson Reuters gathered recently at the "Eagan Gun Club" for the 5th Annual Trap Shoot Fundraiser to benefit the Boy Scouts of America in our area. Over the past 5 years, 438 attendees have participated in raising $112,000. This year $33,190 was raised to support the 70,000 local Boy Scouts! Congratulations!

  1. Wow great fundraiser! You know what I found out recently? Our boy scouts here have girl members. I thought that was so silly :D

  4. The Midwest is much more supportive of shooting than back East. That was one of the eye-openers for me when I worked in Ohio.

  5. Do the Scouts not have to wear neckerchiefs these days? The main thing about being a scout was getting your woggle!

  6. Here I learn of a new method of fundraising - here the scouts collect papers and sell them etc.
