Re: So Cal Team Challenge

Tentative 100yd stage: 10 shots ea. team member (20 total per team) at 20 - 1/2 moa dots on 8-1/2" x 11" target. Separate sighter target, 10min. total time, 20 shots max. on target, any extra shots will be a 10 pt.each deduction from total score. This stage will be shot concurrently with the field stage. This will eliminate some down time while other teams are shooting the field stage. The round count has been included in the above round count which is approx. 80.

Helpful tip: Expect the unexpectable and you will do just fine.

Re: So Cal Team Challenge

2010 BRRC Team Challenge II After Action Report;

I’d like to start out by thanking Jack Edmondson, Tom Redfern, Joe Silvia and Ron Whittington for coming out to help run the match for us, also many thanks for the guy’s who came out on Friday to help set up the range, without the help of these unselfish individuals this event would be impossible.

We started the match with ½ of the group down in the canyon for the Field Stage, while the other ½ started at the 100yard range for the Dot Drill, as the teams finished up at one event they would move to the other, this version of the Field Stage started out with rifle targets at unknown distance fired prone then moving down canyon transitioning to multiple banks of pistol targets followed by more unknown distance rifle targets fired from alternate positions, the stage tests the teams marksmanship, communication, range estimation and physical abilities. The time used to complete the stage went from a leisurely 31 minutes (team 6 Thomas/Thomas) to a blazing 8 minutes (team 10 Villegas/Song) but it was team 9 (Raeder/Thomas) that took the event

The Dot Drill that was fired concurrent with the Field Stage it was a new event that required the teams to engage twenty ½” dots at 100 yards in ten minutes, the event tests the shooters marksmanship, trigger control, NPA, and recoil management, it’s a stage that proved to much more difficult that most expected, team 5 (Eliseo/ Tardif) edged out team 8 (Hern/Sato) to take the stage

The next stage was the Multiple Target Engagement Drill, where two teams fired side by side shooting at multiple targets at 200, 300 and 600 yards presented to them for a ten second window, the team had to very quickly scan for targets and fire on as many of them as possible before they were withdrawn, everyone enjoyed the challenge and knowing your holdovers was the key to success, team 7 (Santiago/Mendoza) got it right and took the stage

Lastly was the Moving Targets, fired at 600 yards with as many as six targets running at once, one team member fires while the other spots and communicates the correcting information to the shooter after 5 minutes the team members switch and start over, in this stage the spotters role is crucial, team 6 (Thomas/Thomas) tied with team 10 (Villegas/Song) for top honors

In the end it was Team 1 (Tessedere/Morita) who took the gold medal for the third time in a row, followed by team 7 (Santiago/Mendoza) who took the silver medal, and team 5 (Eliseo/Tardif) took the Bronze.

The Team Challenge is designed to be highly difficult, to give an idea a perfect score would have been in excess of 1100 points! The match tests a wide variety of tactical marksmanship skills and teamwork, thanks to all the shooters who turned out to support the event, we have some new twists planned for the next even in September, hope to see you all there!
Best, Gary Eliseo
