I'm too old to worry about it, I shoot for fun, my only competition is ME, I only have to beat myself. If I improve, I'm a winner, if I don't I'm dead last.

Anyway, Douglas is just too close to the house not to sign up.

Just an off topic hint for any planning a vacation for this match. There is a lot of government land in the area, there are a lot of PD towns, bring a varmint rifle for some side trips after the match.

The match ends on a Saturday and rushing back to work is soooo overrated. I would be in for some of that.

I don't know where I could find a varmint rifle, though.

Looking forward to meeting you, Kraig.

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.</div></div>

*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?

Sorry about that. I'll fix it. 100 per day is more realistic. If you bring more, you can shoot more.

Re: Official 2012 Sniper's Hide Cup

I just sent out the first wave of emails that acknowledge we got your application.

If you got a message that said "Application Received - Reviewed - Pending Slot Assignments" then just sit tight until Tuesday.

If you got a message that said your application was on hold, it means you had an error in the data entry-- most likely you did not provide a full address. Please correct it and then shoot me an email, and I'll put it back into the review queue.

I also apologize for the (near-) duplicate emails some of you got.

thanks
Zak

Re: Official 2012 Sniper's Hide Cup

My app is in, crossing my fingers. I'd try warming up the short bus for the ride back to my home town (Casper), but I see that Mustafa has transport options that I just might take him up on if seats are available... Of course I'd split whatever fee/ fuel costs.

    Registration ends tonight, so there were a couple of people who have asked and yes you can still register.

    We are full but someone always drops out and the waiting list is by no means large, so definitely get your registration in. It's better to have the application in now then to wait, this way as people drop out you can get in much faster, it's better than trying to hold out until the last minute.

    Also we will be looking out for anyone who wants to act as a Range Officer as we will be needing a lot of them... so if you see this and want to RO instead of shoot, or want to RO instead of just being a casual observer send me Private message.

    Thanks to everyone for registering for the 2012 SHC... we filled the match and are well on our way to bringing you all a great event.

    Now, the set up, the sponsors and the like... look forward to see you all in June.

    Emails will go out confirming your registration if you have not already received it.

    Exchanged PMs with ya earlier this month about helping out so count me in and let me know if I can help in any way prior to the match as I am only 100 miles from Douglas.

    Re: Official 2012 Sniper's Hide Cup

    I am also very close to Douglas and can help out if needed. There is a public park in town where you can park a camper right next to the river and fairgrounds. The park is free so if you don't want to stay in a motel and live close enough to drag a camper this is a good place to stay. If anyone is looking for a place to stay I may be able to drag my camper down and let someone use it for the match. I put in but I am probably to late and have no match experience, so I can help where need be.

    Sounds like a lot of fun. I was just in Casper, WY this fall for an antelope/pronghorn hunt. The scenery is way different than what I'm used to out east but its equally damn beautiful and I loved my week out there.

    As soon as 2330 MST rolls around I'll send out the notifications to everyone who applied.

    I would also encourage anyone who still wants a chance to get into the match to register. There are always cancellations and it's common that many people on the wait list do get a shot eventually.

    I got my notification also. Looking to learn a lot and if someone needs a place to bunk give me a holler, I will have my camper down there instead of driving back and forth.

    Lots of new names on the shooter list which is awesome, bringing a new group into the fold. Plus plenty of seasoned shooters from past competitions I am really excited.

    The waiting list is very short so no one worry, I think in the end everyone who wants to and can shoot the match will.

    Now it begins...

    I'm stoked as well to be with old friends and make new ones at the match. It will certainly be a learning experience for me.
    Glad to see you got a slot Eric, I hope the other park city guys got their slots as well.

    How about a range estimation / UKD/ target ID day at your range in the next couple months?

    Anyone driving through central CO on their way to & from the match? We are looking for someone to carry some gear so we can combine a motorcycle trip with the match. We'd be willing to pay towards gas. PM me if interested.

    We are up in Buena Vista and Summit County, I should have been more specific rather than Central CO. Thanks for the reply, if we could figure out a way to get gear to the front range maybe we can work something out.

    Anybody have a good list of items shooters should bring to this competition?

    Also, will we be able to police our rifle brass?

    If you change firearms after registering is that gonna put you further down the wait list?

    The change would still be within your requirements.

    Re: Official 2012 Sniper's Hide Cup

    No problem. You can update your info at any time and it will not change your match position or wait list status.

    If you withdrew and then wanted to be re-instated, you'd go to the end of the wait list. Also, if someone doesn't pay on time, they run the risk of going to the bottom of the list. (Exceptions are granted for people who are out of the country if other arrangements are made.)
