Message from your President
Gentlemen…. It’s Official! Nine months of planning and design is becoming reality! The Eagle Scout Association (ESA) is partnering with the Greater St. Louis Area Council of the Boy Scouts of America (GSLAC) to construct a state-of-the-art Shotgun Shooting Sports Complex at S-F Scout Ranch.
The complex, which will be called the EAGLE Range, will include a trap shooting facility to support the Shotgun Shooting Merit Badge, as well as a skeet shooting facility for more accomplished Scouts. We also plan to construct a pavilion at the range to support the classroom portion of the merit badge.
This is quite an undertaking for the ESA. We are excited to be working with GSLAC to complete this project. If all goes well, the EAGLE range will be completed in time for the 2014 summer camp season.
But there’s no such thing as a “free lunch”! This is a $65,000 project! And so…. I am asking for your help! The ESA is offering you the opportunity to contribute directly to the success of the project by making a financial contribution. The ESA and GSLAC will recognize all contributions according to this schedule:
.410: $10 - $50
20 gauge: $51 - $199
16 gauge: $200 - $499
12 gauge: $500 – $999
You can mail your contribution to:
St. Louis Eagle Scout Association
P. O. Box 436
Creve Coeur, MO 63141-0436
Or you can follow this link to the ESA website and make your contribution on-line:
Should you be interested in a more substantial donation, we plan to offer recognition by naming range components for the contributor; shooting stations, trap and skeet houses, the pavilion. If you are interested in supporting this tremendous undertaking by the ESA on a large scale, please do not hesitate to contact me directly; 314.406.3254.
For over 65 years, the St. Louis Eagle Scout Association has provided opportunities to “give back” to the local Scouting community. We hope you will take this opportunity to participate in this project, by making your financial contribution to the EAGLE range!
Yours in Scouting,
Steve Chesnut, President
Eagle Scout Association of Greater St. Louis
