Our steering committee is currently planning next year’s event. Tentative dates have been set for February 19-21, 2022.
There will be 1st–3rd place (scenarios A and B) trophies awarded for each team event. There will be one trophy awarded for the overall competition winner. To qualify for the overall trophy, your team must compete in each of the scheduled scenarios. Teams are not required to participate in the Pistol Qualification or the Honor Guard Performance and scores for these two events will not be considered for the overall trophy. Each participating team will receive a commemorative plaque.
