So EDE and I went to the range to meet with the SO range officers and decide what set ups to use. With out giving away the actual stage set ups, we are going to be able to run a 3/3/2 maybe a 3/3/3 depening on the number of ROs.

As we get closer, we will be recruiting ROs, preferably ones that can be there both days, but if you feel like volunteering, let me know.

I'll be there 2 days, getting in Friday or maybe even Thursday night.

I would love :hearts: to help out over the weekend or on Friday if I get in Thursday night. No shooting lessons required - or wanted!! :phew:

It's a nice place, as nice as any range I've been too. Talking with the the two Mobile County SO guys putting the match on their biggest worry is making sure they take care of the shooters and everyone has a good experience.

No walking up and down hills to get to stages and see which ones are running fast or slow. Bathrooms, registration and vendors within 50 yds. Possibly and extra M and 5toG on the rifle deck.
We should have a practice rack and maybe D1s for checking sights on a pay per mag with proceeds to charity. Supposed to have an ammo vendor on sight and possibly Ed's Public Safety if they can make it (fingers crossed). The SO Reserve will be doing the concessions and the police explorers will be running score sheets and helping paste targets.

...and yes, Kitty, I AM EXCITED. I was informed that since I was the one doing the promoting and the one that pushed them to get it, they want me to make sure it works and they want to be able to worry about making it safe and fun so everyone will come back. Also, if this works, they might host some PPC and other shooting types.

If we have the ROs we are hoping for, we will have a relief squad or two and enough people pasting that the shooters will only need to shoot.

For those of you wanting to know which hotels are in the area, the Hampton Inn and Suites- Providence Park has agreed to be one of our host hotels. Right now the rate is $99 but I have heard their government rate is $94.

www.hamptonmobileprovidencepark.com

I am talking with another chain as well to see if they would like to offer a group rate for those that prefer the $60ish range. If it comes through, I will add their information.

Both the Hampton and the secondary hotel are around 10-12 miles from the range.

I was at the range today and noticed that the new becnhes were built and installed. Tables are being built and they have 12 new pepper poppers that are being kept new until the match arrives.

Also, for those of you wondering, the GPS coordinates are:

LAT 30' 42 N
LON 88' 19 W

...so put them in your GPS and see how long it might take you to get here :supergrin:

That IS a group rate, albiet a poor one. Regular rates:
Reg Rack, $113
AAA, $107
AARP/Senior, $101
Gov't $94

I just think it's poor because I already qualify for Gov't and want something better than that. :shocked:

The 99 was the group rate. I think this one is a highfalutin' Hampton, but it close to everything you should need while at the match. Grocery, medical help, movie theater, restaurants, gunshops, ammo.

So if you applied your government rate discount and your AARP discount and the GSSF group discount, they should owe you:rofl:

Kitty, did you check the coordinates and get a door to door distance? Also, I have a group of 30 Deputies and PD officers coming out tomorrow for a "match" run through. I get to be the RO, Safety officer and squadding officer and they all get to shoot. I may even yuse your stuff for a briefing:supergrin:
This will give us a chance to see how sensitive the timers are, where we need vision blockers and expose the ROs to the scoring, sign up, etc...

It's 470 miles to the range for me.

My 'stuff' is good 'stuff' - and it mentions ready positions and trigger fingers. But you wouldn't forget that anyway. You still have cones in mind?

What about baffles between the stages? We spoke about that I think - but I forgot what you said.

...

We talked about baffles yesterday, but what we did was a shot through and a minibriefing on squadding, start positions, range commands and scoring.Of the 16 shooters at the walk through, only two had previous experience with the D1 targets and the arrays.

I let the County RO run me through all three stages and then we let the shooters alternate between running the timer and entering the scores. All of the shooters took turns scoring the targets.

As expected, some shot better on steel and some on paper, but everyone that talked to me about the practice said something similar to, "...now that I know how the match runs..."

On a personal note, August 5th, in Mobile from 12-4 is HOT:steamed:HOT; so hot in fact that I got to :puking:

Oh what I give for this sport:supergrin:

Anyway, everyone was well briefed on starting positions and range commands. Squadding will get more attention, but the ones that picked it up the best are going to be the primary squadding officers.

As to baffles- we will work on them on another date at an earlier time, preferably morning or evening.

Also, I met a new GTer out there but I, emabarrasingly, have forgotten his GT handle. I think it is Todd something. If he reads this, I hope he feels free to chime in.

No problem, you had your hands full. To say the least, it
was a very humbling experience. Especially when we went
through the plates. I can make excuses, but the fact is
I could not hit one plate on my 1st try. It did not get to
much better after that. I did learn a good bit, and I know
I need a whole lot more practice.

I did try a new ammo mag tech that I picked up from
palmetto state armory, and one of the guys told me to
get rid of it. It was bouncing off the plates. That is my
only excuse.

All it is is practice. Most of those guys that were there are used to shooting a single Q target for qualification and when they shoot plates, it is for fun (hardly ever timed and hardly ever with that many people watching).

We should have a few more "minimatches" so feel free to come out again; or just come out and shoot plates.

We tried the timers with reduced sensitivity and it looks like we can run 3 stages per bay. As added precaution, we will put sound "walls" up.

Vision blockers to divide the arrays will be added so the spatially challenged will shoot the correct array.

For those of you wanting to volunteer as ROs, PM me with your info so we can start the list. We should be able to shoot most if not all of the ROs through on Friday.

For those of you that volunteered (and any that may want to help), we will be starting the set up and RO shoot between 12and 1 on the 19th.

We should have plenty of strong backs there already and teh plate racks are already installed so we will need to put up tent/pavilions, the 5 to Glock and Glock M stages, hang signs and banners, move the shooter tables into place and other stuff. The quicker we can get it done, the quicker the ROs can shoot.

We set up the full range (not the practice range or extra arrays, just what we plan on running- 3 5-to-Glocks, 3 Glock 'Ms, and 3 (4 if needed) plate racks.

Sound barriers allowed us to run all three arrays at the same time and we have a vision barrier to keep you from shooting onto the other arrays.

In case it is hot, we have huge "swamp cooler" fans and lots of shade.

There should be a few vendors there, including someone selling ammo, and the Sheriff Posse should be cooking the food. Door prizes will be drawn throughout the day and I believe there will be a pair of Glock certificates raffles off during the weekend.

The range should also be freshly painted and cleaned so as to put ont he pretty face. Come enjoy.

Sounds like a great set-up. Really looking forward to getting there and enjoying some "Mobile Hospitality". Thank you for all you guys have done to prepare.

Ask around for me and we should be able to put you someplace working a score sheet if needed. Make sure you concentrate on your shooting first, helping later.

Hopefully ALL of available ROs will get a chance to shoot on Friday and thereby be ready to run the match on Sat-Sun and let the shooters worry about shooting.

Keeping my fingers crossed that the repeated squadding instructions are being retained by the ROs.

First time match and we have 177 preregistered entries. We could break 300-350 if we get lucky.

Looks like I may bring a new shooter with me to join, shoot and get some RO training.

You planning on being here Friday to shoot and go to dinner? Make sure we get your friend signed up to help RO.

This address should get you close if using GPS

12251 Tanner Williams Rd Mobile AL 36608

The range is on the south side of the dam. Once you get on the start of the dam, there is a chain link fence, keep coming west until you see the gate (highly visible) and the signs. There may be a traffic officer but I am not sure.

Centrally located, decent climate, and a nice range and facilities with BAMATROOPER on top of things. This match should climb in attendance in future years too.

I appreciate the compliment and the vote of confidence, but this was the planning portion and the range was already here. what will make this successful is good ROs.

Looks like we will have 4 GSSF personnel to help on our innaugural match and I couldn't ask for better weather.:supergrin:

I wonder if Jedi mind tricks work on Bama State Troopers?

OK, last post here...from now on it will be the Mobile debriefing thread.

ROs coming to the range on Friday can get there between 12 and 1. Eat before you come and hopefully we will start shooting immediately following the RO briefing.

we should have light to shoot until a little after 6:30 if need be and we might let the people shooting 1 or 2 entries go 1st so they can start ROing the rest of the ROs.

Looking forward to seeing everyone there. Last I heard, we were at 189 preregistered shooters. I would love to break 300, so come early and shoot often.
