There is a new flagpole on the Benchrest Range. A short pole was added to the south end of the 25yd berm on the 200yd range. This flag is used to indicate to the shooting line that someone or several are downrange behind the 100yd berm working on their targets.
When the range is called COLD and the green flags are all posted along the line, raise this flag as you are heading down to work targets on the 200yd backers.
As the first shooter travels west on the road, they should reach over and raise the flag. All shooters on the line need to be aware of this flag and remain COLD until it is lowered.
The last shooter returning to the line ensure that no one else is downrange of them and then lower the flag before returning to the shooting bench.
Then query that all are present and ready to go HOT before changing the line flags to red.
A temporary cardboard sign is at the base to remind everyone to raise the flag as they pass. We’ll get a permanent one soon. I’M DOWNRANGE @ 200yd
