Doctors, nurses and researchers at nearby Fort Detrick, working on a secret project, unplugged some seemingly unnecessary cooling units in order to maintain their coffee and donut fund. Unbeknownst to all but a few Top-Level Researchers, these cooling units were keeping the dreaded Zomboxococcus Bacteria from replicating. Once warmed, the bacteria managed to escape, infecting researchers, then base personnel, then local Maryland and Virginia citizens. Rapidly spreading out of control, a grass-roots contingent of uninfected and armed 1 st Responders was created to try to control the outbreak.
The HESCO 2021 Zombie Invitational multigun match should provide every participant with challenges not readily found in general competitions. As we all know, Zombies are best eliminated with a round to the infected brain. This is roughly a eight inch circle, which at 15 – 100 yards can be quite difficult.
Chose a category to participate in this year and register as soon as possible.
Category #1 Participant – Original – Iron sights and rifle optics. No pistol optics, comps, etc. Center fired, mag fed rifle with or without optics but they must remain on/off for the entire match, shotgun (semi, pump or mag) with no optics.
Category #2 Participant – Modified – Pistol with Carry Optics, no magnification, no pistol comps, slide cuts, etc. per USPSA rules (please read the associated USPSA rules BEFORE you email us). Center fired, mag fed rifle with or without optics but they must remain on/off for the entire match, shotgun (semi, pump or mag) with no optics. We will be inspecting pistols for this
Every participant will gear up each day with one long gun, one pistol (no back-ups), a fixed bladed edged weapon of some sort and all related equipment for the day’s stages – on their body. Firearms with a sling or in a holster. Backpacks filled with snacks, water, ammo, Zomb-e-gone spray, flip flops, spare batteries, whatever. What you leave the car with is all you have for the days stages. THERE WILL BE NO RESUPPLY except for water. The place is overrun with Zombies. Re-supply is impossible. Bring a backpack, fill it, hope for the best. So, to repeat, carry anything you want, but remember, you must carry it for that day’s stages.
A WORD ABOUT SAFETY
Safety is our top priority at the HESCO Zombie Invitational. Please read below for how it works here.
No matter what your organization, unit, municipality, rank or seniority; safety principles and rules will be vigorously enforced. If you mishandle any firearm, do not show proper muzzle discipline, disregard instructions from RSO’s and designated Staff or otherwise show behavior considered unsafe, disrespectful or endangering others, you will be disqualified and sent home immediately.
Each participant will complete a Range Safety Briefing and sign a Liability Waiver before being allowed to complete registration.
All Hands Safety Briefings will be conducted before the competition starts and at each Stage of the event both days.
