Advanced Leadership Training

Friday 21 JUN through Monday 01 JUL, 2013

at Founders Ranchin Edgewood, NM


USNSCC Leadership Training conducted during the international Single Action Shooting Society End of Trail event. Bataan Battalion cadets provide logistical support for an event involving over 1,000 competitors and just as many spectators. Every Cadet will receive an opportunity to organize and direct work crews assigned a myriad of tasks and service opportunities including: crowd control, parking, ticket vending, firing range maintenance, brass collection, brass sorting and sales, target maintenance, sanitation, ice and water transport to over 100 support personnel, and many other tasks and opportunities.

Cadets will be camping at a dedicated site located on the Ranch. Days will start early and end late. Cadets will learn about radio operation, outdoor and weather hazards, knife safety, firing range safety, team building, management styles, interaction with the general public, sanitation, recycling, firearm brass calibers and manufacturers, sales, knot tying skills, and field stripping of popular military rifles and pistols.

The End of Trail event is nine days of single action shooting with competitors dressed in period garb from the 1860s to early 1900s. Days include competition, stage shows, long-horn bull riding, and other activities of the Old West.

Don’t miss this opportunity! This training has become the "rite of passage" for most cadets (ask around).  The signup sheet and preliminary equipment list are now available. This training requires a nominal $75 fee. Contact CO LTJG Adair at 505-453-0964 for more information.
