ROTC Ranger Challenge Information
This topic is devoted to information about Ranger Challenge and questions people may have about it. I have done the competition for three years now, and have seen three very different ways of setting up and executing the competition. I believe that 4th Region ROTC is now doing the same events the same way, so I am here to post just a few lines about each event. If you have any questions, I can try to fill you in with some answers. The events are as follows:
Hand Grenade Assault Course
One Rope Bridge
10k Force March
Map Reading: All 9 cadets will take the test. All test scores count. There are 20 questions and you have an hour to complete the test.
PT test: Just a standard PT test (PU, SU, 2 mile run).
HGAC: There are three targets: One at 35m in the open, a bunker, and a man in a fighting position at 20m. You have five grenades total and may throw no more than two grenades at any target. You will engage all targets IAW the CTT manual standards. There is also a 10m tangle foot obstacle that you must crawl under. The event is timed for speed (for points) and you score points based on following the standards to throw grenades and wether or not it is a kill.
One Rope Bridge: Teams will construct TWO rope bridges and the times are averaged to see how many points are scored based on time. You also score points based on construction of the rope and following proper procedure. Teams are disqualified for leaving a weapon behind or not using the correct knot on the transport tightening system. Time penalties are assessed for touching the obstacle or dropping items into the obstacle.
M16: Teams will run 50m to the weapon, where they will disassemble the weapon (including handguards), stop the time, assemble the weapon, perform a functions check, then run back to the starting point.
Orienteering: Teams are given 90 min to locate as many two letter codes as they can find. Team captains will go to a master map and plot the points on their map. They can then split up their teams into groups of no less than 2 people. Points are worth between 5 and 35 points. A 5 point penalty per minute is assessed to any team that does not complete the course up to 100 min (10 min overtime). After that, the team is disqualified. There is a possible 400 points.
10k march: Teams will complete a 10k march with rucks containing the ROTC Ranger Challenge packing list while wearing kevlars and weapons. Points are scored based time.
Like I said before, I believe 4th Region is now standardized on how to do this. I would imagine that the other regions are doing similar things, and if you want, you may post about it.
