Match Overview
Specific COF instructions are posted on our forum before the match.

We walk the entire range for all distances. Make sure your gear is mobile. This is not a very physically demanding event but every competitor is required to carry their gear from the pits out to each line, all the way to the 1000 yard line and then back in. The walk is roughly 2.5 KM round trip. We shoot rain or shine in all weather conditions unless it is deemed by the Match Director that it is unsafe to shoot.
