The above SCORING MASTER CONTROL SHEET reflects the following scoring methods:
Each Marksman's Total Score (and ranking) will be a combined  total of  his/her Race Score and his/her Hit Score determined as follows for each category ( i.e., Categories are: BSA Scope; BSA IRON; Venturing Scope; Venturing IRON):

Each running portion of the Biathlon will be scored using the following Percent Back System:

                  Marksman's  % Back = (2-(Marksman's  Time / Scoring Base)) X100

                  (The Running Scoring Base is the average time of the top three finishers)

(Formula Source: 2005 IBU Summer Biathlon World Championships)

Each Target Hit portion of the Biathlon  will be scored as follows:

                  (Marksman's Hits / Hit Scoring Base) X 120.

                  (The Hit Scoring Base is the average Hits of the top three finishers)

NOTE: The Marksmanship Portion is weighted 120 (not 100) due to the emphasis we are placing on shooting skills.


  Sharpshooter’s Pledge:

On my honor, as a Lassen Sharpshooter, Venturer / Scout, I promise: 

To always follow the rules of safe firearm handling and shooting;

To seek to master those physical and mental factors essential to the firing of an accurate shot;

To treasure my American heritage, the Bill of Rights, and do all I can to protect and preserve the Inalienable Individual Right to Keep and Bear Arms as guaranteed by the Second Amendment;

To recognize such individual right as being justly considered as the palladium of the liberties of our republic and deterrent to, and defense against, tyranny.

Motto:      Exercising the American Bill of Rights.



"The right of the citizens to keep and bear arms has justly been considered, as the palladium of the liberties of a republic; since it offers a strong moral check against the usurpation and arbitrary power of rulers; and will generally, even if these are successful in the first instance, enable the people to resist and triumph over them...."

Quoted from Joseph Story* in, “Commentaries on the Constitution” (1833). 

* Former Associate Justice of U.S. Supreme Court



"...The one thing that is absolute is that the Second Amendment guarantees a personal and individual right to keep and bear arms, and prohibits government from disarming the people...."

Quoted from: Silveira v. Lockyer - Dissent by: Judge Kozinski.
