SMOKECHECK 16-01 will be held AUGUST 5TH-7TH

SMOKECHECK is a scenario-driven ADVENTURE course designed to push you to the maximum of your abilities.

You will start the day off with a version of a military style rifle and pistol qualification. This is where the scoring system begins. We train to a standard and you will be expected to pass. You will receive the pistol and rifle qualifications in an email after you have registered, so you can prepare yourself as you see fit. 

The scenarios are designed around situations that you could be faced with on a daily basis. A lot of these scenarios will reinforce the 4th safety rule, which is to be SURE of your target's foreground and BACKROUND. The team building scenarios will evaluate your abilities to lead and to follow. Situations will put you in a position of leadership amongst complete strangers in order to unite your team for the common good of the mission.

There will be an introduction to some basic survival skills, such as how to make a survival fire and purify a cup of drinking water. Pay close attention as these skills will be incorporated into the scenarios. 

There will be first responder medical training. This scenario will exercise your ability to fight while wounded. You will be tested on individual medical scenarios that have cursory mission objectives. You will also be tested on team medical scenarios that will reinforce your ability to work together with strangers. 

SMOKECHECK will utilize the UTM (Ultimate Training Munnition). If you have not used it before, you are in for an exciting exercise. If you have, then you are ahead of the game. UTM is a more reliable and accurate version of Simunitions. UTM will be used for force-on-force drills. The answer to the question you may be asking yourself is "YES", you will be shooting and shot with UTM rounds.

SMOKECHECK is going to be physically demanding. Portions of the course will involve kettlebells, medicine balls, and fireman and stretcher carries of teammates, at a minimum. Other segments will require you to traverse uneven terrain. If physical limitations prevent you from performing any of these activities, don’t worry, we will adjust the scenario as necessary. We would just like you to be aware that you are going to life heavy things, run, and sweat.
