Scores from the Qualifier round of the Total Outdoorsman Challenge are posted here, and the cut line has been set at 106. Everyone at the cut line and above will receive an official invitation and instructions on how to register for the Regionals.
Every Regional event is limited to 50 competitors. When one fills up, you must select another site. If you have a strong preference of where you compete, register early.
Looking over the score sheets there is a whole slew of folks from Texas and Missouri, so I bet Grapevine and Independence will fill quickly. Those will be fun to watch with a lot of returning Finals competitors and high-scoring rookies.
Nashville should pull a bunch from the Midwestern Qualifiers and always has some wild-eyed Southern boys who make the combo trip with CMA Music Fest. This location was brutal last year. The three that advanced from Nashville last year finished 1, 2, and 6 in the Finals. Watching who goes to Leeds will be interesting. A bunch from this region went to Nashville last year, but I bet they stay at home this time around.
Congratulations to those that advanced and thanks to everyone for playing. Be sure to keep checking the blog for more tips and updates.
