Each team is permitted to carry a minimal amount of equipment per person (4 caribiners, 3 pulleys, 2 prussiks, and one peice of tubular webbing) PLUS one specialized piece of equipment of their choice per team/day.
Daily competitions will consist of skills, drills and scenarios that will be judged on expertise, efficiency and expedience.
Evenings will consist of video review of the days events with expert analysis from the R3 Judging Team.
The Event winners will recieve a $1000 cash prize to be donated to their registered "Rescue Organization of Choice". Currently regestered organizations include:
The American Canoe Association (ACA)
American Whitewater (AW)
The Higgins and Langley Awards/Foundation
The Drowning Support Network
American Heart Association (AHA)
