Why a 400 shooter limit? Previous zombie events, Outbreak Omega and SHTF, had attendance near 1.000 shooters. This caused long waiting lines and frustrated shooters. Our plan this year is to reduce the number of shooters and increase the number of range officers to produce a higher quality experience for shooters.
What if I sign up early, but something comes up later and I have to cancel? No problem. You can cancel and receive FULL REFUND anytime between now and June 1. Should you decide to cancel, please try to do this earlier than June 1 so we can give your spot to someone on waiting list.
Can I sign up at gate or after 400 limit is reached? If your entry is received too late, we will place you on our waiting list. We will promptly notify you of any cancellations.
What's in the level 1 "Grab Bag"? Numerous manufacturers donate prizes for the 2 door prize drawings. Expensive items such as guns, riflescopes, etc. are awarded at these drawings. Some manufacturers furnish large quantities of less expensive items such as clip magazines, lens covers, knives, etc. We assemble grab bags containing these smaller items. At this time, we have no idea exactly what these bags will contain. You'll either yell "WHOOPEE! or OH CRAP!" when you open them. No guarantee.
