Naw,

Between the RR in August, MRD Open House back in May and my trip to Reno all last year, I won't make it this year. :(

But I am currently stalking a certain someone who is on her way there...........}:-)

Today one of the young woman reporters for Fox News was covering the event. She shot a 240 at the range on live TV, and all I could think of was the members here who could have witnessed the combination of attractive women and gun porn... :D

Best wishes to the competitors. Hopefully the contest will be on the Military Channel soon...RLTW.

Fox and Friends actually covered it this morning.

They had one of their reporters climb the net thingy up and over with about four other Rangers.

They talked up the Rangers pretty good this morning. Something that wasn't on any other channel to my knowledge.

They did it again this evening, a female reporter was reporting in. She was shooting an auto weapon, not sure if it was an M16 or whatever...

Starting Teams

BestRanger2008.jpg


Twelve teams, or 24 soldiers, either dropped out or were encouraged to do so by Ranger instructors. The rigor of the opening day’s events combined with sultry weather — temperatures soared into the upper-70s — challenged even some of the toughest soldiers and Marines.

Latest posted standings as of 0600 April 19, 2008 (only 17 of the initial 29 teams remain)

BestRangerStandings2008.jpg


Latest standings as of 1800:

Team No. 5 - SSG Shayne Cherry and SSG Michael Broussard of the 75th Ranger Regiment — in first place.

Team No. 9, SFC Jeremiah Beck and Sgt. Jeremy Billings of the 75th Ranger Regiment - in second place

Team 3, featuring brothers Capt. Jeff D. Soule and Maj. Gregory S. Soule ROTC, James Madison University - in third place

Team 1, SFC Chad Stackpole and SSG Miguel Antia of the 4th Ranger Training Battalion - fourth place

Team 20, Capt. Brian Braithwaite and SSG Mitchell Tisserand of the 5th Ranger Training Battalion - in fifth place
