    Scouting the location this past weekend:

    423607_10150645056122953_368638077952_10961838_1320010721_n.jpg

    This is a 7000 acre location with natural terrain, these images are just a very small part of what the shooters' can expect.

    Douglas WY is right on I-25 about 40 minutes from Casper and 3.5 hours from Denver CO. The are plenty of hotels and other amenities local with the range location being 10 minutes from Downtown.

    Myself and Competition Dynamics crew spent Sunday moving around the location and feel this would be a true test in field shooting.

    Look forward to seeing you there.

    Looks awesome!

    But so much for my idea about using the 'Cup as a location warm-up for the 24-hour match. Will there be any land nav required at the 'Cup?

    No land Nav,

    The area is actually very nice and has a road ringing the ridge down the center. So we will be working off the road in as it brings you around the 7000 acres.

    Their will be some movement as the stations are set up, but it will be line of sight and not a gut check, well not all a gut check.

    I'm already on vacation that week, I'll probably place dead last but these look like so much fun I can't pass it up with only a four hour drive to attend. I'm in!

    Dead last are the people who talk about it and never show up to anything...

    People who show up to try can never consider themselves "Dead Last"

    Well, I showed up at the CRC last weekend for my first ever Tactical Match and was 32 out of 39. Crap. But, I witnessed great shooting by Hoser and many others, and met some good people who were more than happy to be friendly and helpful to a noob like me. So, I look forward to more of the same at the SHC, and doing LOTS more practicing between now and then.

    Re: Official 2012 Sniper's Hide Cup

    Yes we had a Logistics issue in Utah and moved the registration date and location so nobody was left hanging.

    WY is still drivable from UT, and this location is very similar terrain wise and we believe we can actually shoot more people at the same time here, plus the terrain is very diverse, I think most will enjoy this match.

    The other post was a Warning Order, this is the Official Orders, we had a back up location ready and scouted it out so everything is set now.

    I know I'd enjoy it, dammit, but the distance and time was going to stretch commitments for me as it was......it's just not the slam-dunk that UT was for me, that's all. At least I've got some additional time to consider.

    Understand the issues, just disappointed.

    Re: Official 2012 Sniper's Hide Cup

    My point was, I know there will be plenty of talent present that will be there with their sights on the win. I got into this for fun above all so I'd still like to attend just for the fun and the experience...

    I might even be lucky enough to have some talent rub off on me =)

    My application will be sent in promptly when registration opens. If I manage to grab a slot I'll be there, I can talk about it later, for now I want to shoot!

    If I'm still in SLC when this happens, I might just fly to Douglas' airport... 2 hour hop. Could probably take another shooter or two...

    That does look like a good area to shoot!

    Hmmm....

    From the CD website: "Applications that arrive on the same day will be added to the list in random order." Is this still the case, or is it first come, first serve once the application and email address are available?

    I imagine that is for squadding purposes. I would think the first 100 to arrive after the bell tolls noon are in, then randomly listed for squadding purposes. However, I could be completely off!

    Re: Official 2012 Sniper's Hide Cup

    Hey guys

    Tomorrow is when the registration goes live.

    We are gonna allow you to sign up via the Competition Dynamics website, which we will provide at 12PM EST here. The sign up is just the preliminary one, on Monday will we will send out a confirmation message at which point you can see whether you will be on the match shooter list or the waiting list.

    It will be a first come basis, but we are giving you all weekend to register as we feel we have plenty of spots for most. We'll just use the time codes if we need to really bear down on the slots, but feel we'll be able to accommodate most shooters.

    But watch this area, tomorrow registration goes live.

    New registration info here
    http://competition-dynamics.com/snipershide-cup-2012/register.php

    You'll have basically 3 days to fill out the online application, with no advantage for doing it at any particular time. If we're over full, we'll just take them in random order.

    We'll go through the list on Monday night and send the notification out on Tuesday, but you can just log in again to check your application status using the email/confirmation-code from when you submitted your info.

    If selected, you'll have two weeks to send the match fee. If on the wait list, we'll keep churning through as we have cancellations.

    When the link is available, I will post it at the bottom of
    http://competition-dynamics.com/snipershide-cup-2012/register.php

    I will be out running a local 3Gun match on Saturday. If there are any problems that crop up, don't panic. We'll get them sorted out Saturday afternoon or evening, and there will be plenty of time to complete your initial registration.

    thanks

    Done!

    *Edited to add a question for Zak, the cost and round count for the train up show 300 rounds required for the class, on the train up page it lists 120...which do we need if planning to attend? 120? or 300?

    I look forward to going to the match. I've never been to WY. The terrain looks awesome! I'm sure the match will be a great time as well.
