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 7:00 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.
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 ONLY on Sunday prior to awards.
In a few days, we will post the public SPOT TRACKER URL. This is the live map your fans at home can watch. No points will be displayed with timestamps before Friday at 0700.
BIPODS WILL BE PERMITTED ON CARBINES.
The core staff will be heading up Wed 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.
