  8. Hello All, The 2011 Fallen Brethren 3 Gun Challenge is going to be a great match. It will be held 2-4 December at the Spartan Tactical Range facility East of Jacksboro TX. Staff, RO’s and venders will shoot all day on the 1st of December. Adam Poppawell and I walked the nine stages a month ago and it will be a challenging multi gun match to say the least! We are incorporating the Texas National Guard into the match so it will have a similar feel as the past years Fort Benning 3 Gun Match. The lodging we recommend is located 18 miles East of the range complex in Bridgeport Texas. Comfort Suites----------------La Quinta 2302 10th St-----------------2300 10th St Bridgeport, TX 76426----------Bridgeport, TX 76426 (940) 683-5777--------------(940) 627-9603 We will have a Spartan Tactical rate set up for both hotels. So please ask for this rate. There are closer hotels but please trust us on our recommendations. Let me clear up some rumors and misconceptions. This match was formerly the Fort Benning 3 Gun Match. As I understand it the current command at the AMU did not want to support the match so I was approached about hosting the match at my range complex in Texas. It has been in my long-range plan to have a nationally recognized multi gun match and a sniper match at our facility. I have put a lot of effort in time and money to get ready for this match. I want this match to be a challenging well-run event. Apparently the Brinson Range Marksmanship Committee will not be available to assist with the match due to military deployments. Anyone who has served knows the mission comes first. I spent 20 years in Special Operations with the US Army. This is what I received from Lee Dimaculangan concerning Brinson Range’s participation in the 3 Gun Challenge. It is with our deepest regret that the Brinson Range Marksmanship Committee will have to withdraw from the joint efforts of hosting the 2011 Fallen Brethren 3-Gun Challenge. Due to the BRMC staff composed of all Active Duty Soldiers, their mission takes precedence over any leave and/or recreational events not supported by the Army. The event will NOT be canceled, but rather transformed into an exciting and challenging Multi-Gun competition that will carry on the expectations and prominence of the FB3G. James Smith from Spartan Tactical will continue to coordinate Sponsors, Staff, and Support to ensure a successful FB3G. Ms. Sandra Orvig will also remain as the Match Statistician. Please forward questions and concerns to Jim at spartantactical.com and sorvig at comcast.net. We will continue to assist Jim, Sandra and his Match Staff. Not to worry we have the sponsorship in place and are coordinating all of the necessary elements so this match will be a well run and challenging shoot. I will keep you updated as often as possible with my busy course schedule. Please check back here as often as possible to stay up to date! Sandra will also be busy this week at the Pro AM. I still need a couple of RO’s so if you’re interested please get your application in as soon as possible. RO’s please contact me directely and I will outline the compensation package we have arranged for you. It will be similar to last years program. Sponsors I am still actively seeking a few more so please also contact me as soon as possible. Will will also have the match FFL listed soon. We will have the rules, and stage descriptions posted soon. Match Director: Jim Smith, Jim@SpartanTactical.com Range Master: Stats/Prizes: John Jackson, John@SpartanTactical.com Stats/Registration: Sandra Orvig Our web site is spartantactical.com We will get it updated as soon as possible with a sub section with match information. Please avoid spamming our e-mails with questions and concerns that can be addressed on here. Thanks! Sandra will be also busy this week at the Pro AM, did I already post this? Thanks, Jim Smith, Match Director Jim@SpartanTactical.com
