Hi John,

The team match is ran exactly like a singles match except you get almost twice the time. Tyipcally 5:30 per stage. The SHTC is a "run what you brung" matchj and 2 of everything is highly encouraged, especially tripods. Most stages are blind with all ranges required to be obtained on the clock. You can pair fire or shoot one shooter then the 2nd all the way through. Some stages like the mover will require alternating (1st shooter completes then 2nd). It is a field match so dont expect to see a lot of PRS style engagements (you know...treading water while trying to shoot off of a beach ball), the stages are more designed around using natural terrain features and practical applications. The match is hosted by Frank (at Carl Taylors range), both of whom are HOGs. Not a lot of gimmicks and "unpractical or untactical" scenarios

Reach out if you have more questions.

Clint

Thanks,. Going overboard with gear should not be a problem I don't own much , I was hoping to share a tripod with my son, I have 1 tripod ,one pump pillow ,and a tab rear bag, a set of binos and a Garmin 701. Any must haves that I'm missing?

You have a ranger finder?? You will need one.
Also a Gamechanger style bag would be an asset in this match.

Squads are less than 50 of course, but everyone congregates in one spot for match brief, bbq, etc. I am sure LL will provide his input at some point down the road.

What's the distance between stages look like?

Debating if it's wroth doing rack setup to carry the rifle, or just a sling.

I cant speak to this years setup but in the past you can expect to walk 2 to 3 miles per day, some stages are 50 yards apart others can be several hundred (200 - 600).
