We have been hard at work planning HFTC III, which is going down 20-22 August, 2010. Sunday, we went out and did another recon of the AO, and have been coming up with some really challenging and dynamic scenarios. We have made a couple improvements to this year's challenge that we think you'll enjoy. Read on after the jump to so what's new.
- OPFOR will be split into groups, and will also be evaluated. There will be an award for "Best OPFOR squad".
- OPFOR will have additional objectives and should expect to be "in the fight" throughout the entire event.
Real Steel range (for Teams) will see a couple changes (we think for the better).
- Shotgun course removed.
- Pistol & AR course with moving targets.
- "Long Gun" sniper course:
-- Team chooses best marksman.
-- Farthest target not to exceed 800 meters.
Teams and OPFOR will be faced with more dynamic objectives, as well as options to skip certain optional ones which can change the course of the event... for the better or worse, teams will have to think quickly on their feet.
There is going to be a lot of fun & challenging surprises, and plenty of hiking around, so you should be hydrating and PTing now. Expect plenty of Land Nav, it will make things easier for your team if you can read a topo map, and know how to use your compass!
