  1. This event will be a team competition format.
    Teams will be 4 to 6 participants and will be compiled if participants show up individually. Don’t feel like you can’t attend if you do not have a team.
    Teams will work a LandNav course consisting of 13 fixed points in a woodland environment. Along this course teams will patrol in formations, conduct communications with Mission base, and at some point will simulate a medical evacuation of wounded.
    Team performance will be assessed based on overall time, accuracy of navigation to points and the ability to move and coordinate the medevac with our medevac team.
    This event will require support to provide the teams participating with the best experience possible. We need those wishing to exercise a specific area of their training to fill the following roles:
    Medevac team
    Mission base Com team
    Skill evaluators
    THIS IS NOT A TRAINING DAY!!
    This is an evaluation day to see where your training stands. We will be spending a small amount of time going over some specific information regarding the medevac and communications SOI but the day will mostly consist of evaluation and after action.
    Sponsors are welcome as we plan on awarding the winning team with a prize.
    We hope to have some special guests and possibly a live Podcast during the event; those details will be confirmed as we move closer.
    Watch this space for a sign up link to appear after the 1st of the year.

  2. Guys wanted to give you a heads up for the Park as this may influence some plans.

    Weapons: Bows and arrows, explosives, fireworks, slingshots, fishing spears or any device that discharges projectiles by any means is prohibited. Firearms must be unloaded, cased and stored, unless a person possesses a valid weapons-carry license for a firearm that is valid in Georgia. A person possessing a valid weapon-carry license to carry a firearm valid in this state may carry such firearm on Georgia State Parks and Historic Sites, except on sites where carrying such firearm is prohibited by federal law. Firearms except those that are unloaded, cased and stored are not permitted on sites that are leased, federal Army Corps of Engineers property, including:
    Red Top Mountain
    Seminole
    George T. Bagby
    Florence Marina
    Tugaloo
    Hart
    Bobby Brown
    Richard B. Russell
    Elijah Clark
    Mistletoe

    Reciprocal Firearms Agreements
    Some states have reciprocal firearms agreements with Georgia, and their citizens may possess a firearm as long as they possess a valid weapons carry permit from their respective state. These include:
    Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, New Hampshire, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Wisconsin and Wyoming.

    What that means is that we will be conducting this event with no firearms.
    This may be a problem for some folks and I understand it. I chose Red Top Mountain because it has a LandNav course already in place year round and I could get to it during hunting season to check it out. I did not want to venture into the other location I had in mind while the hunters were out. I also liked that it had camping sites and cabins for those traveling in and its close to some major highways. Its a balancing act and I came down on this side because I wanted this event to be a focus on skills and not a gear show.
