partner and the range officer (RO), and do it under time constraints.

We are stilling looking for a few “Action Stage” RO’s for the Burris Optics Team Challenge, coming up in a couple weeks. Experience with 3-Gun, IDPA, or USPSA/IPSC “Action” stages is a must. At the BOTC we have afternoon “Assault” stages with up to 120 yards of movement (most are about 30 yards). Here’s an overview of our Range Officer (RO) Program. The BOTC is June 22-24 at our Douglas WY facility; RO’s need to be there no later than 0800 June 21 for briefings. Please email us if you’re interested.

Some quotes from 2011 competitors:
“Hoser” Freeman – This has got to be one of the funnest and toughest matches I have ever shot. Mike and I finished each field course completely drenched in sweat and heart pounding. Trying to find that wall of how hard to push movement and still being able to settle in to shoot was a great challenge. The night stages were deceptively tough and the assault stages were brutal and fun. The prize table was awesome. Hard to imagine it was all set up well into well after most all companies had done their budgets for the year. Huge thanks to all the companies that supported this match and us shooters. The scoring was perfect. No issues, no drama. I cant wait for next year. Bring it.
Mike Kolar (SRM Match Director) – “I’m really excited about this match — I want to shoot it again right now!”
FCB on SnipersHide.com – “This was by far the best match I’ve ever been to and the best test of a rifleman that I’ve seen.”
Quickdraw40 on SnipersHide.com (Team Pro Plate) – “No square range shooting here folks and you better be in shape. If you have shot Steel Safari, this was like Steel Safari on crack with super cool side matches thrown in for fun. Organized well, no drama, super quick scoring, and an amazing prize table. ”

The Competition Dynamics TEAM CHALLENGE has been ongoing since 2011. Over that history it’s had TBAC, USO, and BURRIS as title sponsors, and has hopped venues once. The concept is one we’d been tossing around for some years: Shoot a significant part of a STEEL-SAFARI-like course in a big time block, but do it for points and time together. Then in the afternoons, shoot a whole bunch of hard and fun assault-style courses for a combination of carbine(s), rifle, and pistols. Over the years night stages have been in and out depending on venue and timing.
Accept no substitutes, shoot the original TEAM CHALLENGE.
REGISTRATION IS OPEN NOW
