I'm curious about the stages shot in W3G....
Do you ever set up any stages with No downrange movement?
The reason I ask is because the Majority of Ranges here in Texas have no Berms,
so downrange movement usually is not practical.

I would like to set up a couple of W3G stages at one of the Clubs I shoot at regularly,
But No One here, that I'm aware of, has ever shot it.

It is possible to do without down range movement but it is more challenging.

When I write W3G stages, my objective is to define only which targets are to be shot with which guns and how many times and perhaps also what the gun order is. Beyond that, I try to let the shooter and the stage sort it out.

I also try to make sure that not all targets for a given gun are available to the shooter from any one spot. There are several ways to accomplish this. The most common is to use barriers or false walls to block a shooter's view. If these are set up correctly, the shooter can move along the firing line and never be able to see all the targets for a gun from one spot. Another method is to use the targets themselves to block the view of other targets. This gets very difficult since targets are so much smaller than walls.

Walls can be held in place with construction stakes or stands for them can be built. The walls themselves can be old doors or plywood sheets with stiffeners.


I hope this helps.

Thanks BJT...
I was sorta thinking along the same lines.
Moving laterally using doors and windows along a store front and staging targets to block other targets.
We might be able to build some movable walls too....

Is there a page here anywhere that goes into details about setting up stages and scenarios?

Or does anyone have any written stages they could post here?

I'm not Lefty or Sammy but, I am the east coast match director (yee haw).  I'll bet if you went to the Deadwood Boys sight and contacted them that way, mayhaps they could send you the 2007 World Cup booklet that has some really good stages in it, and they would most likely send you more info...etc...etc...etc. If I can be of any help please contact me at cadics2002@yahoo.com

Howdy Sam,

I sent you a personal e-mail with the some ideas. Working on a 180 plane does restrict your creativity a little, but it's very possible. Like I mentioned in the e-mail, W3G is about not restricting the shooter, giving them options and throwing in an accuracy factor. Have fun!

Talk to you soon,

Lefty

Thanks Lefty...
I got your email, I've been so busy I hav'nt really had a chance to do more than talk to a couple of Pards about setting up some stages to see if there's any interest around here.
Turns out there is a Range just south of Dallas that tried W3G a few years back, but never attracted a following....
Maybe its time to give it another Shot...... They Have Berms!!!

Thanks!! I'll be in touch if we can get this going.
