2018 RBGC Run-and-Gun

It's official!

The board approved a Run-and-Gun tonight.

Probably 5 stages, so I need 10 ROs minimum.

DATE IS NOW CONFIRMED 3-31-2018

It will be a 5k.

And yes...there will be an ammo-expensive MP2 stage.

I should be able to come help RO.
If needed, I'll try to round up some of the other locals to help as well.

Fixed that for you. Don't know if I can make that one - already making a long drive east in March....

I know y'all are fully capable, but if you need anything, just ask. VERY glad this fire is spreading!

The good stuff is somewhat self-winding!

I do have at least one stage that will need 3 ROs. The others probably not.


In case I didn't make it clear ROs WILL SHOOT FOR FREE!

I'm going to make a leap of faith.

Count me in as an RO.

If you'll have me.

As stated before, our little sewing circle is available to RO if needed.

I believe that should read as 3-31-2018 as 3-31-2017 is long past. Still debating if I will do one or both dates this year.

Stimpy, I realize that you were wanting relatively young and still mobile RO's to keep up with all the high speed, low drag shooters that will come. But I always jump at the chance to see some long lost friends, make new ones, and see some fantastic shooting.

I won't mind running stats, timers, whatever. I figure that will allow somebody else to concentrate on their shooting. Besides it is only a short drive from here.

So my offer is still up on the table. Let me know if I CAN be of help instead of in the way.

Someone has to load all those blanks too!!

Have to make sure we have em in 308, 223, 7.62x39, and 300-B/O... or maybe limit the ammo to be carried to the calibers we have blanks for.

...Be funny (me thinks) to take all of a run-n-gunners mags and make him turn around while you violate one and then turn back around and hand em a stack to load back into their gear just before they depart for the pain! Thinking, what stage will I fall victim to the malfunction?, Will I get to that mag? Do I want to sacrifice my run time to try to find the culprit?... hehehehe

The solution to this problem is to provide a 'range gun' on one of the stages.

The cruel idea I had that has since fled was to have the mystery gun be the 1919, but someone would hop up and down on it trying to load it and make me sad.

In that case you are on the list, is that a firm IN or 'tentative'?

And many thanks, as always!
