Ribbon cutting with CZ-USA and Boy Scouts.

Mr. Robert Mazzuca, Chief Scout Executive for the Boy Scouts of America was presented with a commemorative CZ-USA Redhead shotgun at the Camp Geiger Shooting Range ribbon cutting last July 16, 2010 by Alice Poluchova, President of CZ-USA, a sponsor of the new range.

Camp Geiger Shooting Range is the first public shooting range in the nation to be built and operated by the Boy Scouts of America. The shooting complex offers 40 acres of 5 Stand, sporting clays, archery, rifle, and handgun shooting facilities on the grounds of BSA Camp Geiger in St. Joseph, Mo.. The shooting complex is open to the public during the 10 months of the year it is not filled with scouts attending summer camp.

The public shooting complex at Camp Geiger is a pilot program for the Boy Scouts of America. If successful, the model could be followed at the over 400 Boy Scout camps across the nation. This is not the first time Camp Geiger has been a Scouting innovator. Geiger has pioneered other programs adopted nationwide including Project COPE.

The new range will assist in the continuing the efforts of the Boy Scouts to raise the next generation of responsible sportsmen. In addition to the BSA shooting programs, proceeds from shooting activities at the Camp Geiger Shooting Range benefit the Pony Express Council of the Boy Scouts of America and fund programs for more than 2,000 Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts and Venturers each year.
