ALEXANDRIA, Virginia, Aug. 18, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Hesco announces their newest sponsorship; The 2017 HESCO Zombie Invitational, a two day Recon-style precision rifle, pistol and shotgun competition open only to qualified, respected, and experienced military, law enforcement, and security professionals.
The Zombie Invitational begins with the premise of an outbreak of the Zomboxococcus Bacteria. The competitors are positioned as "grass-roots contingent" created to try to control the outbreak and stop it from rapidly spreading out of control.
Jeremy Gray, Zombie Invitational co-organizer, explains the competition:
"This event requires that competitors must leave their vehicle with everything they want for the whole event. There will be no re-supply. The incorporation of the Zombie theme adds time elements to the stages, intricate and unique shooting solutions, and head shots. Every stage is cleared only if the targets get a head shot. In most competitions shooters are scored for center mass strikes, therefore current and former Law Enforcement, Military and those civilians with previous competitive experience will find this event incredibly challenging."
The announcement of Hesco becoming the lead sponsor comes soon after the defensive barriers and body armor company announced being awarded Superior Supplier Status by Defense Logistics Agency (DLA).
Stephanie Victory, CEO Hesco Armor:
"We pride ourselves on our sponsorship; forming partnerships that offer unique ways we can reach our brand ambassadors, and Hesco is such a great fit for this event. Operated by Military and Law Enforcement veterans, it provides every participant with an extreme challenge not readily found in general competitions. And as a company that manufactures products that ensure the protection of our military and law enforcement we also want to ensure they are prepared for the Zombie Apocalypse!"
Over one weekend, participants can cover up to thirty miles of challenging terrain and are able to shoot on one range in a full 360º with live ammunition. Winners of the competition will receive HESCO Body Armor. Register now at www.zombieinvitational.com
