Fall Team Match   ----  Results

There were eight stages for our Fall 2011 Team match. An additional night stage was shot but the results were dropped after a "failure to do right".

WX was sunny and 70s. Winds were squirrelly as usual, though somewhat stronger in the 10-15mph range.   We had some really great competitors from 16 different states, including CA, UT, MO, OH, and FL.

Congratulations to the winners below and thanks again to all who participated!

The following are a few of the stages planned for the Fall 2011 match.  The remaining stages will be revealed to competitors upon arrival at the stage.

 

QRF Recovery Op

Story board:

Khowst Afghanistan February 2002 

An Advance Force Operations (AFO) element was in the process of receiving a company of 101st infantry division prior to operation Anaconda.  The AFO element had been in low level but constant contact with Taliban forces for the last 45 days.  When a flight of three CH 47s arrived the Taliban could not resist the opportunity to engage.  The flight of 47 took fire on final approach to the HLZ and had to set down quickly in brown out conditions resulting in a “hard landing”.  The AFO element reorganized into a QRF element and maneuvered 1.5 Kilometers towards the wreckage of the CH-47 to recover, protect and treat the wounded 101st soldiers.
