The Vortex Extreme is just around the corner. As we talk about this event with the general public, most people express how cool and fun the event sounds. Indeed this event is awesome and most importantly a heck of a lot of fun. We are even entertaining changing the name of the event to the Vortex Fun! Ok, maybe not, we will stick with the Vortex Extreme. It has a nice ring to it.
We have several weeks before the actual event. Momentum and excitement continue to build as the event draws closer. Many key industry players are sending teams to compete for the ultimate bragging rights; but remember, one of the primary missions of the Vortex Extreme is to keep the event open to the general public. So, if you are remotely thinking of signing up, our call to action is simple … "JUST DO IT!" This will be one of the most unique and exciting events you will participate in all year.
So you are asking yourself,
"Why should I sign up and compete in the Vortex Extreme?"
1. Great Weekend Retreat – Spend a weekend with your friends doing something that no one else in the entire world will be doing. As part of your registration fee, you will receive a night stay at the Hampton Inn and a delicious dinner. Can't think of a better weekend getaway.
2. Accomplishment of Pushing Yourself – Do you ever wonder why people run marathons or climb mountains? Because they thrive on the joy of doing something that they don’t normally do. There is great satisfaction in pushing yourself outside of your comfort zone and accomplishing a difficult task.
3. Awesome Prizes: Did we mention that your team is competing for cash prizes. The first place pot is $1,500, second place $750, and third place $500. In addition to the cash prizes, there will be several other unique prizes related to various elements of the event. Let's just put it this way, everyone has a chance to be in the running.
4. Get Free Stuff: Thanks to our marvelous sponsors and the direct involvement of Vortex Optics, there will be well over $7,000 of items that will be raffled at the event. Everyone will receive a gift bag for your participation along with several raffle tickets for the higher ticket items.
5. Full on Fun: Most people love a good competition. Think of the rush you will gain by spending a day hanging out with friends, meeting new friends, pushing you physical limits, shooting targets, eating good food, and most importantly, having the satisfaction of saying you competed in the Vortex Extreme!
Some might think they have to be in tip-top shape to do this event. That is just not true. If you have the ability to get out and go on a good hike, you can complete this course. Most guys simply walk a good fast pace. Don't let the "long range" description scare you off either. The targets you will be shooting at will average between 300 to 700 yards. So don't let the elements scare you off. This is definitely going to be a memorable event. See you all in July!
