WINTER MUSTER

Small Unit Communications, land navigation, and patrol methods field exercise

Where? RED TOP Mountain State Park, Canton, Georgia – Shelter number 4
When? Saturday February 14, 2015
Time? 0900
Cost? $5.00 to park and a donation to cover the Shelter.

WEATHER IS PERFECT SO NO EXCUSES THERE 😀

Course of Instruction

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 10 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.

Sponsorship has been provided by Sam K at the III% society.

Sam has graciously provided each member of the winning team with a copy of CONTACT! By Max Velocity.

In addition we will be having a raffle also sponsored by III% society for a gift certificate to one of Max’s classes for $100.00. Raffle tickets will be $2.00.

I will have two copies of Grid Down Communications by Sparks31 for two volunteers who step up to man the HQ coms.

I will have two copies of Ditch Medicine by Hugh Coffee for two volunteers who step up to be our med team.

WINTER MUSTER

Field exercise consisting of small-unit communications, land navigation, and patrol methods. 

Where? RED TOP Mountain State park, Canton Georgia Shelter number 4
When? Saturday February 14, 2015
Time? 0900
Cost? $5.00 to park and a donation to cover the Shelter.

Course of Instruction:

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 10 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.
