This is an open call for competitors to fire a practice 800 aggregate match on the Talladega Marksmanship Park's Range 1 on Sunday, November 15th. Volunteers for this test event will be given free range entry, but will have to provide their own ammunition. Bring enough for an 800 agg with sighters.

The purpose of this test is for staff to practice range commands and rules before the Talladega 600. This will also test our recent upgrades to the KTS results system.

Competitors interested in helping staff should email Sara Rozanski, Chief Range Officer of Range 1, at srozanski@thecmp.org to register. Limited number of spots are available for the test match, and walk-ins will not be accepted.

All CMP range requirements will still be mandatory. The gates to the park will open at 12:30 so paperwork can be filled out. Safety briefing will begin at 1:00 pm, with firing immediately after.

Please email Sara with questions or call 256-474-4408 to speak with someone at the Talladega Marksmanship Park.

I haven't heard back from Sara yet, but if you haven't shot a match like this and you're interested but unsure or lacking some gear, let me know.  I'm planning to be there and will be more than happy to help out anyone who is new to shooting across the course.  The course of fire is very similar to what you've done in Appleseed - Standing, Rapid Fire Sitting, Rapid Fire Prone, Slow Prone - though the targets are somewhat smaller and the distances are a bit longer (200 yards, 300 yards, and 600 yards).
"The great body of our citizens shoot less as times goes on. We should encourage rifle practice among schoolboys, and indeed among all classes, as well as in the military services by every means in our power. Thus, and not otherwise, may we be able to assist in preserving peace in the world... The first step � in the direction of preparation to avert war if possible, and to be fit for war if it should come � is to teach men to shoot." -Theodore Roosevelt
