NOTE: This form takes registrations from ALL U.S. Scout councils.  If your council already has their own registration page that we know about (see the Resources - Links section) then we will also forward your registration information onto your councils coordinator so hopefully your information will show up on both sites.  Arizona has their own registration page at http://ontarget.mesavarsity.org/ and the teams registered for the September On Target can be viewed at http://ontarget.mesavarsity.net

Coordinates: Please enter latitude and longitude in decimal degrees ( e.g., 35.4997, -118.2502 rather than 35º 29' 59" N, 118º 15' 1" W), so our software can process it. Your latitude will be between 30 and 60, and your longitude, between -100 and -140.
  • To convert to/from decimal degrees to other systems, use this online converter: Convert Geographic Units
  • One way to find the decimal latitude/longitude for your chosen location is to right-click on it in Google Maps, and select the "What's Here" option. The decimal latitude/longitude will appear (possibly below other information) under the search box at upper left.

IMPORTANT!!!!   If you want your team to have a successful On Target you should post at least a cell phone number that you can be contacted on BEFORE (to make plans) and DURING the event.  Although it helps to register your team and get them on the map you still need some method of contacting the other teams from the peak to get their attention so they are looking your way and are flashing at you while you are flashing at them.  This is called making a confirmed contact when they confirm verbally that they see your flashes.  WARNING many peaks do not have cell service so your cell phone won't work.  Amateur (HAM) Radio works best but if you can't find a HAM to go with you an FRS/GMRS radio on Channel 7 (462.7125 MHz.) may also work for a contact up to 50 miles away.  We will also be using the On Target Conference call #  712-775-7085, Access code: 915255 to try and link those teams with only cell phones with those that have HAMs during the event.  We've had requests from several On Target Coordinators that you list your email address when registering so they may contact you if they need to.  Sharing your email address also helps other teams contact you to make plans. QUESTIONS?  Send email to ontarget(dot)gslc(at)gmail(dot)com (be sure to replace the text inside the parenthesis with the correct character).

NOTE:  The map below is for the Sat., 15-July-2017 event (don't worry that the dates above the map say 2016).  If you don't see your peak come up on the map after you register send an email with your peak info (including latitude and longitude coordinates in decimal format) to ontarget.gslc@gmail.com . 


The Appalachian Trail (AT) peaks shown on the map below are the locations where HAMs and hopefully Scout units will be participating with them during the sister event Golden Packet held on the same day every year as On Target (units can do do both events simultaneously from one of the AT peaks or one of your choice).  We are trying to get On Target going back east along the AT!  To learn more visit http://www.aprs.org/at-golden-packet.html .
