I'm checking it out. Spectator not shooter, range reopens Monday shoot the course then. I've got a Utah hunting license I never use. Maybe take the ATVs and hunt coyotes a day. Tim Titus from No Off Seasons son, and nephew are teamed up. Should be a good day to watch and learn.

Re: Vortex Extreme - World Class Competition - Wanna go?

Did anyone make it? The "kids" did shoot as Team No Off Season. They had a few extra challenges. Ben found his barrel was shot out without enough time to replace it. He ended up shooting my rifle. And, Gus wast diagnosed with a stress fracture in his foot two days before the competition and had to be ambulanced from station to station in the Ranger while Ben ran the course.

With only one runner, they didn't get any credit for their time and finished tied for tenth and eleventh. They would have placed sixth had they been able to count their time score. I was pretty proud of them for their first time out. Ben did win the Bullseye Camera System Challenge at the end of the event. It was a one-shot-winner-takes-all at 500 yards. They actually had to have a shoot-off as the closest two shots were both within 1 1/4" of the bull. You can check out a more complete write-up on our FaceBook page if you're interested at: https://www.facebook.com/pages/No-Of...46?ref=tn_tnmn

Spirit Ridge does a good job hosting the event. They give away a lot of good prizes and it's run pretty smoothly. We'll definitely be back next year. The guys have been strategizing since they got done.

The friend I usually travel with lost his job. We planned on shooting the course at least once this year. So we ended up scrapping the trip.

HC: I'd still like to shoot a round of golf. We'll have to plan a trip one of these days.

Re: Vortex Extreme - World Class Competition - Wanna go?

I understand that they scored it somewhat differently than in the past (This was the first year we've gone.) but the winning score was 111 out of a possible 151. The fastest time was two hours and 35 minutes. Here is a link to the results page: http://www.vortexoptics.com/uploads/...sults_2013.pdf
