Sees Sights Lift

Sees Sights Lift (7/11)

  1. I'm excited to announce KRG (Kinetic Research Group) has joined on as an obstacle sponsor. Check out their website at https://kineticresearchgroup.com/ and be sure to thank them for their support!
  2. I'm pleased to announce Tactical Solutions is returning as a sponsor this year, and committed to $1,500.00 in product for the prize table. Be sure to check out their website at: https://tacticalsol.com/ and thank them for supporting the match!
  3. I'm thrilled to announce Alan's Arsenal LLC is returning for the fifth year in a row as a Title Sponsor, and is bringing over $5,000.00 in gear for the prize table. And they're having a Labor Day sale on their website Sept. 2 - 7th. What better way to thank them for supporting the match than by buying something on sale??? Be sure to tell them why you're there when you do - Check it out at: https://alansarsenal.3dcartstores.com/
  4. We've had several people at past matches ask for more Legion SWAG, so we're going for it this year. $5 to SFA will get you a morale patch $20 to SFA will get you a custom engraved whiskey glass $20 to SFA will get you a t-shirt And of course you can buy all three, or multiple of each if you want! Add to that the beer donations and PVS-14 raffle already mentioned, and you really want to bring lots of cash with you to the match! Remember there is no ATM anywhere nearby, so bring it with you or miss out. Here's a proof of the patch and whiskey glass engraving:
  5. I am thrilled to announce Timney Triggers will be returning this year as a sponsor, and bringing over $3,500.00 worth of gear for the prize table! Check out their website at https://timneytriggers.com/ for all your trigger needs, and be sure to thank them for sponsoring the match!
  6. Dead Zero Shooting Park is donating their entire facility to us for no charge so we can maximize our donation to SFA. So be sure to sling some money their way while you're waiting for your run (or after you finish your run)! Rent a 50 BMG and shoot it at 1,000 yds, rent some range time on their LR rifle course to verify your zero and dope, shoot a round of Sporting Clays, 5-stand, or skeet, buy some merch from their Pro Shop, or even just drinks and snacks. At the very least - THANK THEM for making this all possible! If you think there's any chance you might pull an item cool enough to need an FFL transfer off the prize table (there are several!), you might want to plan on staying an extra day. Dead Zero will handle the transfer, but they typically are gone for the day by the time we finish the Awards Ceremony. They can also coordinate shipping to your FFL - but you cover the shipping cost. And unfortunately, shipping anything that could be considered a "pistol" (like an AR-15 lower) is stupid expensive. Keep that in mind when you walk the prize table. Check out their website at: https://deadzeroshooting.com/ to look through all the options and plan your visit.
  7. I'm pleased to announce Nightforce Optics has returned yet again as a sponsor, and sent two 50% off certificates and two certificates for their X-Treme Duty Unimount ($260.00 each). It's hard to put a value on these as it depends on what you buy - but these prizes combined could be worth well over $4,000.00. Be sure to "like" NF's facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/NightforceOptics/) and check out their website at: https://www.nightforceoptics.com/ for any optic needs you might have. And don't by shy about asking Sean Murphy's advice - he's the Nightforce guru and always happy to talk optics, and will be with us all weekend long! Be sure to thank both Sean and Nightforce for sponsoring the match. It really makes a difference!
  8. I'm thrilled to announce that Spike's Tactical is returning yet again as a Title Sponsor this year, pledging three different rifles to the prize table with a total value well over $5,000.00. Be sure to like them on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/spikestactical/, check out their website at https://www.spikestactical.com/, and tell them THANK YOU for sponsoring Legion!
  9. I am pleased to announce The Star Spangled Brewing Co. has signed on as a sponsor! Not only will the owner be running the race with Staff on Friday, but they will be providing FREE BEER to all match finishers on Saturday (possibly Sunday if you 5k guys don't drink it all!) near the finish line. We must be clear here so we don't screw this up: ONCE A BEER TOUCHES YOUR LIPS, YOU WILL NOT TOUCH A GUN FOR THE REST OF THE DAY. And of course and always: don't drink and drive. This is intended for competitors to relax and enjoy a beer or two after finishing their race and while they wait for everyone else to finish. Donations to the Special Forces Association, Chapter 38 are appreciated, and we'll make it easy for you to donate right when you pick up your free beer. Like them on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/StarSpangledBrewingCo/) and check out their website at: https://www.starspangledbrewingco.com/ - and be sure to thank them for supporting the match!
  10. A correction on Jon's bio from his widow - it seems he had so many deployments they wouldn't all fit on the one page: ⁠ Jon had a total of 10 deployments, 7 combat deployment and 3 operational. He supported Operation Iraqi Freedom in October 2007 and January 2009; Operation New Dawn in August 2010; Operation Enduring Freedom January 2012 and January 2014; Operation Inherent Resolve November 2017 and November 2018 until his passing in January 2019. ⁠ She also notes that he was actually shot at more on the operational deployments than the combat.
  11. Stage 7 (10k only) is in honor of Chief Warrant Officer Jonathan Robert Farmer, who was killed by a suicide bomber in the line of duty in Syria on January 16, 2019. In this stage: Intel has identified the HQ of the people who sent the suicide bomber. Attack from a distance, taking out High Value Targets (HVTs) including the commander, officers, and bomb maker himself. Protect yourself from enemy flanking maneuvers as needed. - De Oppresso Liber -
  12. Remember - you will need eye and ear protection to shoot. If you show up at a stage without either, you will not be allowed to shoot and will have to take a zero for that stage. Many people carry extras, because $hit happens and you don't have to run back an extra mile to figure out where you dropped yours. You don't have to wear it when you run if you don't want - but it is mandatory for shooting. You'll also need a stopwatch of some kind to record your wait times if you have any. If you show up at a stage and someone is already there shooting it, the RO will tell you to start your wait time. IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to time this and track it accurately - the RO will NOT do it for you. When it's your turn to shoot, the RO will ask for your wait time and it will be subtracted from your net run time. While you are on wait time, you are NOT ALLOWED to eat, drink, sit, meditate, sleep, reload magazines, move gear around, or anything else that could give you an advantage over someone who does not have wait time. It's supposed to simply be a "time out" to not penalize you for back-ups at shooting stages. Just stand there and enjoy the brief rest that the guy in front of you probably didn't get.
  13. Stage 6 (10k only) is in honor of Senior Chief Petty Officer Scott Dayton, an LCPO (Leading Chief Petty Officer) of a 4-man EOD Team, who served closely with 5SFG. Senior Chief Dayton was tragically killed in the line of duty in Syria on November 24, 2016. In this stage: defuse a bomb, then fight through an attack when things go wrong. - De Oppresso Liber -
  14. We have several unique terrain-based obstacles this year that will test both your physical skills and your mental toughness. If you have any claustrophobic tendencies, you may want to start learning to face them and power through. As with all of our matches - the 5k has an "easier" version of this obstacle, but the 10k has the "all in" version. Be ready. It's also come to my attention that I should warn everyone they will get wet on this course, so you should dress appropriately. If you're smart and skilled you can minimize this to avoid almost all of the water. If you're neither of those things or just prefer to plow through the depths - that's fine with me too. And of course Mother Nature has a say too. She may decide we ALL get soaked no matter what we do. It has certainly happened before. Be prepared for anything you might encounter in fairly rough/remote terrain in the Southeastern United States. I'm pretty sure there are no alligators onsite - but I'd prefer them to all the ticks and chiggers I can PROMISE you are there. Treat your clothes with Permethrin. Apply Deet liberally. DO NOT wear shorts, no matter how hot it is - especially if you're doing the 10k. You will regret it.
  15. Primitive camping (no hookups, no power, no water) will be available on site at Dead Zero Shooting Park for $10/night. No need to make reservations - just show up and check in at the Pro Shop to pay. If the Pro Shop is closed when you arrived, find a spot out of the way and pay the next day when it opens. We are bringing in extra portapots for this, but you need to plan on bringing everything else you might need with you. There is a Dollar Store about 15 minutes north of here, and a Walmart about 20 minutes south of here if you need supplies. BE SURE to be respectful of their land and leave your campsite in a better condition than you found it. Fires are fine, but keep a close eye on them. If you leave any trash I'm going to put you on garbage patrol for all 2,000 acres of property we are using this weekend.
