Frequently Asked Questions
1. Where should I stay while at the event?
There are several options to you, the first being a hotel. We recommend staying in Columbus, TX which is about 15 minutes from our facility. As the event gets closer, we will work with the local big brand hotels in that city to block rooms for the students and once that is done, we will send an email to you guys so you can book a room, if you desire. There are also hotels in Sealy, TX which is about 20-25 minutes away and closer to Houston. The last option is either camping or bringing an RV (See below for details).
2. What is the plan for inclement weather?
The show must go on, there is very little that will cause a delay in the event and even less that will cause an outright cancellation. If lightning is severe enough, we may call a facility-wide delay to allow it pass, because of liability and lawyers. As far as rain, cold and anything else, just plan ahead and dress appropriately.
3. Can I drive to the ranges?
Only to some of them. The others you will have to walk, so be prepared to have your items in a way that they can be easily carried to the next stage. Because of the structure of the event and how big it is, many of the ranges will only be accessible by foot. When you arrive, you will see specifically where your ranges will be based on what stage you are on and you will know then if you are able to drive there or not. The walking distance to these ranges is not unreasonable at all. The ranges that are farther away will be able to be accessed by vehicle.
4. Can I camp on-site?
Yes, we have a dedicated camping area. There you will find a luxury shower trailer that we bring in for the event, a large bonfire area for socializing after the match and space for you to set up any size tent you would like and park your car next to your camping site. The cost for camping is $75 and is for Friday night through Monday morning. Sign up for camping here.
5. Can I sleep in my vehicle on the property during the event?
Yes, however, we are going to require you to park your vehicle in the camping area where everyone else will be and you will be considered a "camper" for registration's sake and have to pay the camping fee.
6. Do you have RV hookups?
Yes, but these hookups are limited in number and will be first-come, first-serve when registration opens. We do NOT provide water or waste connections, only power. We do have the ability for you to dump gray water and refill onboard water tanks if need be though. The cost is $125 for Friday night to Monday morning. Sign up for RV Parking here.
7. Do you allow golf carts or UTVs to be used during the match?
No, these are strictly forbidden in the facility.
8. You are providing lunch on both days?
Yes, between the switch over from the AM group to the PM group, we will be providing lunch in a large tent in the main central area. This lunch will be catered in by a professional company and will not be some lunch shoved into a box with a bag of chips and called "gourmet". Expect stuff like two-meat BBQ plates with several sides.
9. What are the rules for this match?
This match will be run in accordance with the United Rifle League (USSL) rules. You can find the rules here.
