For 2016 we’re happy to announce a significant upgrade in our field communications capabilities. Working with Kent at Tactical Repeater, we’ve put together a digital (DMR) based repeater system that will give us superior coverage, signal strength, bandwidth, and flexibility compared to our old radio system.
The Steel Safari has been a very popular match for the last ten years; it has sold out every year since 2008. This year is no exception and we currently have just over a dozen on the wait list.
Those of you who missed the window of opportunity to get into the Steel Safari, or are on the wait list, please take a moment to consider the TEAM SAFARI. The TEAM SAFARI is just like the Steel Safari (and uses a very similar course), the only difference is that you shoot it with a partner. The TEAM SAFARI currently has plenty of open slots, so give it shot!
STEEL SAFARI WAIT LIST INCENTIVE – For a limited time, anybody who is on the Steel Safari wait list (as of 4/19) will get a $50 discount on the TEAM SAFARI match fee if they relinquish their Steel Safari wait list position and sign up for the Team Safari.
Our favorite pen flare, Tru-Flare, seems to be extremely hard to find, and it’s possible the company is out of business (their website has been down for some time).
If you cannot find another pen-style aerial flare to satisfy the required gear list, we are going to permit the substitution of an aerial marine or other style flare system as long it will achieve an altitude of at least 200 feet and have a burn time of at least 4 seconds.
Our friends over at LIBERTY FORGE are hosting some exciting classes in 2016, including: Extreme Close Quarters Concepts (ECQC) from Shivworks; Immediate Action Jiu Jitsu and Pugulism with Cecil Burch; and 5 Day Tactical Tracker course with John Hurth of Tyr Group.

We are pleased to announce that La Sportiva is the OFFICIAL FOOTWEAR Sponsor of the 2016 COMPETITION DYNAMICS season!
La Sportiva, with US operations based in Boulder, Colorado, is a global manufacturer of premier outdoor gear and is best known for their world-class mountaineering, hiking, and trail-running footwear. Their Nepal EVO boot is probably the most-recognized modern mountaineering boot in the world and you’d be hard pressed to find a Crossfit Gym around the country in which there aren’t a few people wearing their Crosslites.
Speaking personally, I have been spending my own money on La Sportiva mountaineering boots and trail-running shoes since the late 2000’s. They are simply my “go-to” footwear for active endeavors.
La Sportiva will be sponsoring our prize tables throughout the 2016 season as well as offering a very special discount package for 2016 COMPETITION DYNAMICS Range Officers.
