ELR Southeast Match
The ELR Southeast match in Blakely, GA will be an official ELR Central event. Brian Litz and the folks at ELR Central/Applied Ballistics LLC are bringing the regulation targets and will be shooting as well. Come shoot in the “Heavy” or “Light” Gun divisions or both.

The match will run within the ELR Central guidelines with a max distance of 2400 yards. One shooter and one spotter will be allowed on the line. A competitor is allowed to shoot once and spot once in each division. Competitors may compete in both divisions if time allows but will only be eligible for prizes in one division. This requires registering for the “primary” match and the “secondary” match. The “primary” match is $100 and if you shoot a second gun, the “secondary” match fee is $50.

RS3 Ruck Match Scrimmage
Joe Burdick has also brought a new concept to the Sniper Challenge community. To help prepare competitors for the rapidly approaching team ruck-match season, there will be a two-day event that is run at the Arena Training Facility. Consisting of 3 stages on Saturday and 3 stages on Sunday. These will be “Sniper Challenge” style stages, with a well-marked ruck route, and a designated campsite. Burdick states, “It will be self-paced with a stage brief posted at each stage. Attendees may shoot, ruck, cook, and/or camp in any order they choose. You may shoot a stage as many times as you like if there is no one waiting. Participants can use this event for practice, training, gear trials, getting to know a new partner, or an equipment shakedown.”

Single shooters or teams are welcome to enjoy the course but this event should be of particular interest to teams who will be shooting the upcoming Mammoth Sniper Challenge and/ or the Bushnell Elite Tactical Sniper Challenge. Stages will be similar to those encountered in ruck matches and stage design will have input from the folks that participate and run the 2 biggest matches of this type. Participants may ruck or drive between stages. Price will be $50 per shooter, per day or $80 per shooter for both days.

1776 Liberty Bell Benefit Shoot
For those attending the ELR Southeast Match at Arena Training Facility, a special side stage will be available to all competitors, spectators, ROs, guests, and Ruck Scrimmage participants. Chris and Scott at BEST Targets have cut a “Liberty Bell” AR500 target. It will be placed at 1776 yards for a fundraiser shoot. All proceeds from the Liberty Bell shoot will be presented to the Army Sniper Association's, SSG Eric Caban Fallen Sniper Fund.

On 19 July 2006, while serving as a sniper with the 3rd Battalion 7th Special Forces Group (Airborne), SSG Eric Cuban died from wounds received in combat. The Fallen Sniper fund provides immediate assistance to the families of fallen snipers.
