Griffin, GA – August 28, 2010 - The Boy Scouts of America’s Flint River Council held their first annual Webelos Top Gun Competition on Saturday, August 28th at the Ole Mill Range Complex in Griffin, GA. The 4th and 5th grade Webelos Scouts spent the morning session learning BB gun safety, marksmanship techniques, competitive shooting positions, and practicing with the Daisy Avanti 499 Competition BB gun, the most accurate BB gun in the world.
The staff worked with each participant to not only meet the requirements to earn the Cub Scout’s BB Sports Pin, but each participant also completed the requirements and earned the 2010 USA Shooting Junior Olympic Team patch. The afternoon session included a practice round of shooting at competition targets which was then followed by the much anticipated Top Gun Competition. Each Webelos Scout shot four targets with the aggregate score determining the Flint River Council’s Top Guns.



3rd Place went to Justin Kramm, Pack 210, Fayette District; 2nd Place was awarded to Chaz Finchum, Pack 60, Tussahaw District; and the 2010 Flint River Council Top Gun was presented to Charlie Lovell, Pack 74, Fayette District. Each of the participants showed remarkable improvement throughout the day and truly represented the “Do Your Best” Cub Scout spirit.
A special thanks to the volunteers from both Spalding and Fayette County 4-H for making this event possible. For more information, contact Todd Day
