Oklahoma Run N Gun Winter 2019

Run date 1/19/19
5K, 10K, 20K

Com-Bloc Challenge - trophy for best 10K with a commie rifle (see rules at www.okrunngun.com)

We're going to do a team challenge also - 35 dollar entry per team, all proceeds go to Suicide Prevention Lifeline. Here's the rules:

Pick a partner for your "team". Both runners must be 10K. (If one runner is doing more than one 10k, they may use the best of their 10k score, but it must come from the same 10k loop)

Pay 35 dollar Team Challenge fee. I pick Hensch for my team.

I run at whatever allotted time I get, Hensch does the same. May even be one of us runs Friday, the other Saturday, doesn't matter.

At the end of Saturday, Becca gives you your score - one for run time, one for shoot. (you already get this, so Becca doesn't have to do any extra work!)

Get with your partner, look at your scores, pick the best run time, and the best shoot score, but they can't be from the same team member. Total score, divide by two, that's your team score.

Best team score gets a trophy and bragging rights. All money from the Team Challenge will go to the Suicide Prevention Lifeline.

Deer chili is on the menu, and my buddy from Louisiana is gonna bring the boudin. Who's in?

Hensch and I are a team, but we're both running AKs....might be a handicap.

You'll see at least one mine.

My plan is the 20K.

FAL first, then AK.

I'm doing the 20K, too. I thought I was going to do the AK first in an effort to max my score (be less tired), and then do the FAL because I'm stupid.

That seems like a good plan.

Seeing you and Jimmy are teamed up.

I've never run this before but I am planning to do this one. Would an AK without any optics be competitive or are there some long range shots that would take an AK with iron sights out of the competition?

There will be a 500 yard shot.

There will be multiple 200-300 yard shots.

I'm not involved in any of the planning: just going on what I've encountered in the past.
