Match planning, spending, and resource allocation takes place based on how many people have registered. Furthermore, each person who is registered prevents someone else from shooting that slot. When you register and pay you are effectively reserving your shooting slot in the match. Due to the commitments required to attend a major match, the likelihood of someone being able to change plans at the last minute and attend is very close to zero.

Whereas our events are in high demand; that they take significant preparation; and that participants travel long distances to attend and take considerable time off of work to do so, it is extremely difficult and practically impossible to fill "last minute opening" event slots. Registering for one of our events is in effect "reserving" a slot for you. It prevents another person from registering for the event.

As such, THERE ARE NO REFUNDS FOR MATCH ENTRY FEES ONCE PAST THE "NO REFUNDS" DATE. This date is displayed on each match's registration page and also at bottom of the application form. This policy is absolute and there are no exceptions. If a person completes registration by submitting the required information and pays, but that person does not attend the event, the entry fees are forfeit. This is regardless of if we are notified that they cannot make it, or if they simply do not show up. There is no "compensation" in either case. We cannot transfer an entry fee from one match to a different match. An entry may not be transferred to another shooter (or team) without approval of the Match Director, which will not happen if there is a wait list.


Anyone who contests a charge in a circumstance where they paid for a match entry and then demanded a refund contrary to this policy will be banned from all future COMPETITION DYNAMICS events.

For team events, if a refund is to be issued, a single check will be issued to the primary (first) team member on the regiatration (team members can split the refund amongst themselves as they see fit).


COMPETITION DYNAMICS EVENTS TEST A PERSON'S PHYSICAL AND MENTAL LIMITS AND CARRIES WITH IT THE POTENTIAL FOR DEATH, SERIOUS INJURY, OR PROPERTY LOSS. FIREARM SHOOTING COMPETITION HAS INHERENT DANGERS INCLUDING DEATH, SERIOUS INJURY OR PROPERTY LOSS. Firearms (in general), shooting, handling firearms, shooting competitions, and even being at a shooting range (all collectively referred to as “shooting activities”) are hazardous activities. These events involve physical and mental challenges, including risks of exposure to weather including extreme heat, sun, cold, precipitation, and other environmental factors, and dangers inherent in the natural environment. The risks include dehydration, over-exertion, frostbite, exposure, lightning, snake bites, heat stroke, and other physical dangers including serious injury or death. It is your responsibility to acknowledge these and other dangers involved in the activities described and that you assume all responsibility.

It is also your responsibility to comply with all applicable federal, state, local, or other laws involving firearms, shooting events, or other outdoor contests.

Participants agree to follow all applicable event rules, as detailed in the: per-match web pages; match handout given at check-in; or elsewhere, and to follow the instructions of match staff.

Participation in one of our events may be terminated by a ruling from the event staff. This includes match disqualification (DQ). The reasons include but are not limited to: not following the safety rules; not following other rules; disregarding safety procesures; disrupting the event; unsportmanlike conduct; breaking the law; being under the influence of alcohol or other drugs; creating or contributing to an unsafe situation; or other reasons. There will be no refunds if you are disqualified (DQ'd) from an event or if your participation is terminated for any reason.


Our highest priority is to run a safe, enjoyable, and fair event for everyone. Although we have never had to cancel an event, one can imagine situations in which an event would have to be cancelled. In the event that a cancellation occurs due to circumstances within our control (for example, insufficient registrations, staffing), match fees will be refunded or credit given for a future event. In the event that the cancellation occurs because of circumstances outside of our control, for example, forest fires, natural disasters, acts of god, immiment environmental danger, etc, whether or not the event has already started or not, no refunds will be given. This is the nature of running large competitive events in nature. Furthermore, COMPETITION DYNAMICS shall not be held responsible for any costs incurred by competitors, teams, volunteers, spectators, or anyone else involved as a result of event cancellation.


Must be present to walk prize table. Must take possession of prizes (including FFL items) within 30 days of event summary or they will be forfeit.



The waiver that everyone on-site must sign includes language substantially the same as this:

In consideration of being permitted to participate in this event, I grant full permission to COMPETITION DYNAMICS and its agents, associates, as well as any assignee, to use photographs, video, digital or analog media, electronic media, and any other record of the event, including my name, likeness, voice, together with any subject matter owned by me, for any legitimate purpose, without any compensation. I also release Releasee from any and all claims for damages, libel, slander, invasion of privacy or any other claim based on the use of the above-described material(s). If I cannot be photographed or recorded it is solely my responsibility to prevent it.

If you cannot have your photo taken, the two suggested ways to communicate this to media on-site are: (1) a solid black arm band on each upper arm, or (2) a patch on each shoulder that says "NO PHOTOS" and is readable from at least 10 yards away.

All persons who wish to record any media at CD events must be cleared with the match director and Contingency-X. Please contact us for details.

Failure to comply with this policy will result in ejection from the property.




An event registration reserves a spot for you at our event. Due to the events' difficulty and travel involved for most participants, late filling of event slots is practically impossible. Thus, by signing up you are preventing other participants from entering our event. Consequently, there are no refunds on event registrations once past the "no refunds" date.


For apparel and other promotional items ordered from the web site, they may be returned for a full refund (not including shipping charges) privided they are in new and re-saleable condition. A refund may be issued once all the customer's funds from original payment have cleared to our bank (checks additional 10 days), and that refund may be paid by credit card refund, check, or cash as appropriate at our discrestion.
