Congrats to all the 2019 Team Safari competitors. Here are the full results 2019 TS RESULTS PDF.

Right now the plan is to have the 2020 schedule be basically identical to the 2019 one, IE, same “weekends” in each month. We will have final dates posted and registration links by mid December.

We are seeking a few more RO’s for the upcoming TEAAM SAFARI, held in Logan NM at the Blue Steel Ranch, Oct 17-20. Prior competitors in any of our matches are ideal. We are specifically seeking RO’s with “Action Stage”, or 3-Gun, RO experience. As an RO you will be a “LEADER OUT” in the morning (experience with historic field course layout at BSR is a plus) AND/OR you will be an action-stage RO in the afternoons on Friday and Saturday.

We need RO’s there on Thursday, mid day, for RO briefings. RO’s may not shoot the T.S. for score, however, will can give you an opportunity to shoot some of the stages for fun. In addition, our RO program gives you credit for a future match. For reference, here is the CD Range Officer Program.

SAC Competitor Information

Posted By: Zak Smith on September 2, 2019


Make sure we have your SPOT data registered with us AND that you have enabled TRACK mode for at least an hour. No team whose SPOT is not tracking will be permitted to do the land nav mission. We are still missing a couple teams’ data. I am not going to track you down, this is your responsibility. If you do NOT see your team name on the tracking web page, we do not have you SPOT 2019

If you plug “Shirley Basin Leo Loop, Hanna, WY” into Google maps, it’ll take you pretty much right to the Q Creek HQ. The UTM coords of the HQ are approx 13T 374250 4674100.

Check-in will be available 5-7pm THURSDAY ONLY. Check-in is required prior to 7:00 PM THURSDAY if you want to race. All competitors and guests on-site must sign waivers.

On Friday morning, make sure your SPOT is on and tracking by 6:30 AM so that we can verify everyone is online before race start.

Please bring a few sheets of paper and a pen appropriate for making field sketches or reports. Some type of waterproof or water resistant paper is recommended (rite in the rain, revlar, terraslate, etc), but not required.

You need to have tested your water purification devices and processes before you show up. A significant portion of “available water” on this course will be from natural sources. Think “expedition style” as opposed to water tanks everywhere. There is a lot of natural water on the course and you will need to be able to use it.

There is no place to check zero or sight in once on site. Show up ready to shoot for score.

At check-in, you will get a race packet that outlines the procedures and scoring. Read how scoring works. There will be an opportunity to have questions answered Thursday before 7pm and Friday morning at muster. Bring your firearms to check-in for TECH INSPECTION. Firearms must be cold/unloaded.

Muster at 8:00 AM Friday, ready to race. (All firearms to be “cold.”)

Remember, you will need to bring a check or cash for $100 (exact change please) for your radio deposit. This will be returned when you turn in your (working) radio. Radio deposits will be exchanged for radios upon race end, or before awards on Sunday. Please note that if you quit the race early, you may have to wait until staff is available, or until awards Sunday, for the exchange.

Awards will be at the check-in location at 10:00 AM Sunday.

The Spot Tracker URL is at the top of this message. No points will be displayed with timestamps before Friday at 0600.


The core staff will be heading up Tues AM. Once we are on-site, communications are very difficult. I will check my email and voicemail about twice a day and do my best to get back to you.

If we have any additional competitor notes, they will be published in the same manner as this notice.
