Preliminary stage descriptions:

The following stage (or “course of fire”) overviews are planned but are subject to deletion, substitution, or change without notice.  Final stage descriptions and stage briefs will be presented the day of the event.


Stages are sponsored in part by Costa Ludus. Costa Ludus conducts training for the game of life, where the knowledge and skills learned in training may one day translate over to the streets or battlefield, determining life or death. We train others with the understanding that life is bigger than us. We understand the sacrifices that others make on a daily basis for our freedoms – that is why we take training so seriously. https://costaludus.com/



Stage 1 – Main Stage  Sponsored by Molon Labe Crossfit gym

Class: Crusader.

4 athletes compete simultaneously side-by-side through 200 yards of obstacles designed to provide both aerobic and anaerobic action and stress prior to shooting.  A common fixed firing line with staged rifles and shooting barricades will challenge shooting capabilities from different positions with required multiple hits on steel approximately at 100 yards. Obstacles and actions may include include tire flipping, kettle bell tossing, lifting/carrying weight, balancing on logs, speed ladder, shooting from various positions on a common firing line. Competitors will cycle through this gauntlet multiple times until they finish.

Stage 7  The Rodger Reactive Target System – Sponsored by ETF Training Group

Class:ALL

Description: TBA.

Common timed drill(s) will be selected and scored by ETF Training Group operators and shot simultaneously by 3 competitors in side-by-side bays.  


About the Rogers Reactive Target System:

Bill Rogers developed a training program and a high speed moving target system. The program replicates the minimal amount of time a shooter will have to successfully neutralize an adversary. Using this system, the Rogers Shooting School specializes in teaching students to successfully engage and hit small reactive targets that are moving and only exposed for a fraction of a second. We call this type of shooting skill, Reactive Shooting. Unlike conventional target and training systems, the shooter must react to the target’s exposure, and successfully shoot it down in the time the target is available. Like in a real life battle, sometimes the targets require multiple hits before going down. This training reinforces the critical skill of “following through”.




Stage 8 – Drill Baby, Drill

Class:ALL

Practice up on your rifle pistol drills. This stage will require shooters to complete a sample of range drills from various positions in a set amount of time. Crusaders will have physical challenges incorporated into the shooting sequences.


Stage 9 – Keep Drilling

Class: Pistol Carbine Anything

TBA


Stage 11 – Escape from Warsaw (Pact) – Sponsored by Jane Smith

Class: Crusader Only

About 1400 yards of hard moving action crossing sand, water, climbing up rocks, and running trails. You will only carry and utilize your pistol on this stage, as you move through the virtual Warsaw Pact you will find rifles with ammo to combine with your pistol for taking out those pesky targets along the way.  Safe rifle operation (and manual of arms) supported by knowledgeable ROs before, during, and after use.
