Seeking Range Officers for 2015 Season

Posted By: Zak Smith on February 26, 2015

Want to be part of a Competition Dynamics event? We are currently seeking Range Officers for our 201t events. Here’s an overview of our Range Officer (RO) Program. Besides being part of a world-class event and seeing some of the best shooters shoot the events, you can earn a free competitor slot for any of our matches — even if the regular slots are booked.

We still need RO’s for these events:


Range Officers MAY shoot the match “for score.” The match directors will RO the RO’s through any “blind” stages to ensure that all competitors have the same surprises and challenges. RO “Shoot Through” will take place on August 5-6, directly prior to the main match. We are also accepting RO’s who do not need/want to shoot the match.


The SAC is a “Tactical Adventure Race” that involves a lot of land navigation on foot (no GPS allowed) during day and night, practical shooting problems, fieldcraft, problem solving, physical and mental challenges, and other related tasks. The dates are Sept 4-6th. Range Officers at the SAC will either run shooting stages or be a “judge” at a mental/physical/field challenge stage. This event is extremely physical. Being an RO is an opportunity to be a part of the event even if competing in it is beyond one’s ability. If you have medical expertise we have a medical team to put you on.

TEAM SAFARI: Oct 23-25, Logan, NM

The Team Safari can be thought of as a Steel Safari for teams. We need a few additional RO’s to run a couple assault-style stages.

For more information about any of these matches, please refer to the main Competition Dynamics web page

Please contact me at if you’d like to volunteer!

SHOT Show, Sponsors, and Steel Safari wait list movement

Posted By: Zak Smith on January 17, 2015

Hello everyone! Much of the CD crew is headed to the SHOT Show this coming week. If you’ll be there, please track us down. Ray and Zak will be mostly in the Thunder Beast Arms Corp booth (#8407), while Jeff Hamilton, Jimmy Holdsworth, and Clay will be at large.

If your company is interested in sponsoring some or all of our events, please talk to Jimmy Holdsworth or Jeff Hamilton.

Our response time to email will be slower than normal next week with the show and travel.

In addition, there has been some movement on the Steel Safari wait list. If you wanted to get into the Steel Safari, there is still a good chance– get on the wait list ASAP!

We still have slots open for the Thunder Beast Team Challenge, Sniper Adventure Challenge, and Team Safari.
