Vortex Extreme - World Class Competition - Wanna go?

I'm thinking very seriously about giving this a go.

I've been there and the 7 miles isn't a cake walk. I drove my HIV-II

50 teams of young bucks. . .

Being 70, out of shape and missing some decent body parts I have to wonder a bit. However, there are medical stations in place.

Most of the entrants will be from UT. Would really like for an outofstater beat their pants off.

I don't have an up to speed spotter but will try to get someone up to speed by then. I suppose both team members shoot.

It looks like I may have Townsend pretty much to myself this week end. Will use the day to seriously confirm drops, dope wind and learn some stuff.

After Townsend I'll do a few rounds as SpriitRidge to learn the terrain and wind. Can use a UTV for that stuff.

Even if I choose not to enter I'll do what I can for anyone that does.

Best of luck to you. Would like to know how you do.

Been contemplating entering next year hopefully. Or as soon as I can walk up a flight of stairs without sucking wind. Just joking but would need to be in better shape

Roy, I participated in it last year and will be there this year also. It is actually alot of fun and the course really has only one big climb in it and you can take your time although you won't be in the money. They do change it year after year somewhat so who knows exactly what it will be. As I recall, we did it in 2 and something hours and it was HOT. And we were deemed "the old guys" but finished in front of alot of the young guys. Last year, you had 7 minutes for both of the shooters to get set up, range and acquire the targets and shoot. Sometimes multiple shots at each station---it went by pretty fast.
