CURRENT UPDATES FOR THE RAIDER WEEKEND
#1 - 1 June, 2019: EVENT PAPERWORK POSTED / REGISTRATIONS ACCEPTED
Event SOP, score sheets and registration guidelines are now posted on the website. Schools are now officially allowed to enter for the November competition. Those returning preferred teams can register until 1 August and their entry slot will be automatically accepted. After 1 August, all entries are accepted on a "first come, first accepted" basis. Don't wait, register today to lock in your competition slots.
#2 - 1 June, 2019: REMINDER: ADDING A FEMALE DIVISION TO THE ALL-SERVICE CHAMPIONSHIPS
At the urging of several schools, SNI is willing to take the plunge and try to see if there is enough interest in a straight Female Division in the All-Service Championships event. This division is now available to add your team! We will trophy this year in 1st through 3rd place unless we exceed 10 total competing teams in which case we will have 1st through 5th place trophies. Those schools looking to support this and continue this in future years, we are totally looking for your interest and support this year to continue this. GOOD LUCK LADIES!
#3 - 1 June, 2019: REMINDER: HELMETS FOR ROPE BRIDGE REQUIRED - PROVIDED AT THE EVENT
Helmets have been purchased and will be made available for teams executing Rope Bridge. These helmets will be REQUIRED for all teams in both the All-Service Championships and the Army Championships.
#4 - 24 September, 2019: GAUNTLET CLARIFICATION REGARDING WALL ENGAGEMENT -BOTH EVENTS)
The SOP is poorly written and makes it hard to understand what obstacles what teams will undertake on the Gauntlet. For clarity, MALE TEAMS ONLY will undertake the 11' wall. All other teams will be directed PAST this tall obstacle just down the path where ALL teams will then undertake the 8' wall.
#5 - 24 September, 2019: PHYSICAL TEAM TEST FEMALE TEAM MODIFICATION - CHALLENGE CHAMPIONSHIPS ONLY
This year, the female division of the Friday Challenge Championships allows the use of 8-person teams versus the standard 10-person. To further provide team flexibility and safety, two changes have been implemented within this update:
1) FEMALE teams may have 8, 9 or 10 competitors should they desire. Also the team may have a maximum of 12 members.
2) The canoe obstacle during the Physical Team Test will NOT be executed by FEMALE ONLY TEAMS. The reduced number of cadets makes the transport of the ammo cans more arduous and to ensure safety concerns and damage to the canoe are minimalized, the canoe is omitted for FEMALE ONLY TEAMS.
REMINDER TO ALL TEAMS! THE COMPETITION SCHEDULE WILL BE POSTED SEVEN DAYS BEFORE THE EVENT,
THEREFORE YOU WILL HAVE TIME TO SCHEDULE YOUR MEALS AROUND YOUR COMPETITION TIMES!
