One thing about this match guys, it's entirely a charity event for Protect the Harvest. Every dime of profit will go to this awesome charity. If you don't know anything about Protect the Harvest, check them out at the link below. The easiest way I know to describe them, is they're what the NRA SHOULD be, only for agriculture instead of guns. They're one of the driving forces for good to help support our farmers and ranchers across the country. You can check out their mission statement at https://protecttheharvest.com/about/...oaAolUEALw_wcB

We have another sponsor! Bluegrass Targets have been sponsors for a while as well, and they're gonna come back this year in a big way. If you're looking for the best deals on the highest quality steel targets, look no further. I've shot these things in very not recommended ways for years and they're barely nicked.

So let's talk classes. There are 3 separate classes that competitors can choose from. First is Open. Run whatever, team up with whoever, do whatever you want(within the rest of the rules). Second, we have our Jack and Jill. This team has at least one female runner. Two girls wanna team up? Awesome, you're eligible too. Third is our Lone Survivor class. These badasses will do my team course by themselves. They have the same round count, same obstacles, same everything as the teams, they're just doing it alone. This class is limited entry, and will only have 15-20 slots available. If you're a single person and either don't want to/can't get into the Lone Survivor class, let me know. Post on the page. Shout to the world. Put out a singles ad. We will find you a teammate.

We have another sponsor! @tandemkross is returning this year. They put the fantastic trigger in the 10/22 last year, and threw a bunch of gear on the prize table. They make some of the best rimfire accessories on the market today, so they were pumped to hear that we were bringing back the rimfire match on Sunday. You can check them out on social media and at their website below.

Stage 1 - Can I Count on You?
Count Dracula is leading the invasion of the supernatural forces to wipe out the human race. Kill his captains before taking a shot at the Lord of Night himself.

Before the stage begins, one teammate will use a staged shotgun and provided ammo to try and hit 4 clay " bats" in flight. Each clay destroyed will eliminate one target and add 5 seconds to the par time for the stage. If you clean all 4, 30 seconds will be added to the par time. Targets are eliminated from nearest to farthest.

On the buzzer, the other teammate will engage 6 targets, minus any eliminated by shotgun, from nearest to furthest. The closest target will be at 200, the furthest at 700. If you clear the stage, you can decide to remain on the shot clock and shoot at the bonus "Dracula" target at 850 for an advantage later in the course. You stage time is last shot fired, regardless of target being engaged. Failure to eliminate all but Dracula will result in a DNF. A spotting scope will be provided as well.

@twobluescrews did a great AAR on the 2019 Run For Your Life Zombie RnG. For those who couldn't make it, or are new, here's a little glimpse into last year.

Stage 2 - The Bug Hunt - Presented by Primer & Co

Wild explosions of magic have caused the bugs to grow to truly horrifying proportions. But they retain their ability to hide, sometimes in plain sight. Find them and exterminate with extreme prejudice.

On the buzzer, you and your partner will enter two seperate shooting boxes. Split between the two boxes are 13 targets. Each target must be hit twice to be considered eliminated. Once you both are convinced you have shot all the targets on your side, swap sides and repeat. Each target not eliminated will incur a 15 second penalty. Lone survivors will swap 3 times to account for the same number of targets.

Pistol hits - 52

I find myself with a couple of RO slots open. Ideally, a team would be willing to sign up. ROs run on Friday, work Saturday, and some of them will work Sunday. ROs get a free match entry, a t-shirt, and access to the lodge. Priority goes to people I know, have ROd for me in the past, and others that other MDs can vouch for. Feel free to message me however you know how, or email me at jordan.lee.schultz@gmail.com

Opinion poll on AK build class. It's normally a 2.5 day course. Would you guys be interested in doing it earlier in the week? Or Wednesday/Thursday? Or would competitors be interested in it as a Thursday/Friday deal? ROs would be able to participate somehow, we can work all that out. So, are people willing to show up earlier in the week for the build class? Or try to get it as close as possible to the weekend? Cost is looking to be around 1500 for a standard 7.62 AK, and 1700-1800 for a 6.5 Grendel AK. This includes building the entire gun, cerakoting it, and ammo to zero and function test.

Stage 3 - The Unstoppable Horde - Presented by Bluegrass Targets
The undead have risen from the grave. They don't get tired. They don't get thirsty. They don't get hungry. And they won't ever stop. So stop them.

On the beep, each shooter will.move to one of two shoot boxes. There will be 7 targets at pistol range, and 9 at rifle range. Each "target" will consist of either an 8 or 10 inch chest plate, then the pistol targets will have a 4 inch head plate, and the rifle targets will have a 6 or 8 inch pelvis plate. Shooter will perform standard failure to stop drills, two to the chest plate, and one to the secondary plate(pelvis for rifle, head for pistol). Targets must be completely neutralized before you can move on to the next target.

Rifle hits - 27
Pistol hits - 21
