The SLEEP INN in Douglas has a “CD Match Rate” of $79 + tax for any remaining matches in Douglas this year.
We are heartbroken to convey the news of Darrin Fink’s passing. Darrin was a dear friend of all of us here at CD and his death diminishes the shooting community as a whole. His generosity was unmatched. We considered him a brother.
Darrin loved the concept and challenges of the SAC and the upcoming SAC will be renamed to the “DARRIN FINK MEMORIAL SNIPER ADVENTURE CHALLENGE.”
CD will be holding a Memorial BBQ for Darrin on Sunday Sept 4th, starting just after noon. This is right after the SAC awards and is open to any shooters or friends of Darrin who want to come and share memories. We will be grilling and will have refreshments, but please bring anything special you’d like to. Overnight camping will be available on an ad-hoc basis if anyone wants to crash for the night and drive home safely on Monday.
Funeral arrangements have not yet been arranged by the family. We will follow up to this post when more information is available.
In addition to “Classic/SOF Irons” and “Classic/SOF Optics”, we will also run an OPEN division where any modern-open-class firearms may be used. Major/minor scoring will still apply
ACTION REQUIRED FOR SAC PARTICIPANTS – DUE BY AUGUST 22
Like last year, we are going to use live SPOT tracking of competitors during the Sniper Adventure Challenge for safety, logistics, and spectators.
In order for this to work, we need a link to each team’s “Shared Page” from the SPOT site. Here are the instructions:
A password is NOT required, but if you have one, send us the password also.
Note: only send us the URL after the SPOT has been on and the footprint button/light flashing for 1-2 hours
TEAM: Smith / Sanchez
CONFIRMATION CODE: 1324
SEND TO firstname.lastname@example.org
These steps will allow us to get everyone’s SPOTs into our tracking system and tested prior to the event so we don’t have last minute technical difficulties.
SPOT II/Gen2 or SPOT III/Gen3 recommended. You need to be able to activate “TRACK MODE” via a button on the device (the “Footprint” icon). Other models may not work well or be compatible with our tracking system. A SPOT that requires another device (such as a phone for bluetooth) is NOT RECOMMENDED. NOT RECOMMENDED: SPOT Trace, SPOT Global Phone, SPOT Connect, SPOT HUG.
REMINDER – TEAMS WILL NOT BE PERMITTED TO DEPART THE RACE WITHOUT A TRACKING SPOT. “I.T.” PROBLEMS WILL BE ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO SOLVE ONCE ON SITE
The pre-registration deadline has passed, but we will still be allowing on-site registrations at the August Burris Douglas Local Rifle Match coming up this weekend.
CHECK-IN AND ZERO-CHECK WILL BE AVAILABLE FROM 4:00 PM UNTIL 6:00 PM SATURDAY.
Late check-in will be 7:00 to 7:30 AM Sunday morning.
There will be no SAC-LITE challenge this month.
LOCATION / PARKING
The match is held at our Douglas shooting facility. This is a private ranch, so please follow directions, take care of the property, and be respectful so we can continue to shoot here.
To get to the parking area for this match, plug the “virtual address” 598 Wagon Hound Rd. (Douglas) into Google Maps. On Google Maps, this is coincident with an intersection of a driveway with Wagon Hound Rd. Turn north at this intersection onto the driveway. Proceed to the top of the hill. You will find a parking area marked with yellow ribbon starting at the telephone pole at the top of the hill.
Park ONLY longitudinally (that is, parallel to the road) on the SOUTH side of the road (that’ll be your left). Pull off the road so traffic can pass but do not go more than 6 feet off the side of the road. Do NOT drive or turn around in the grass.
We will have a shooters meeting at 7:30 AM Sunday. It is mandatory.
