I have it in my log book at home in the USA, but it seems it's about 1800 or so on our 500M firing line.
Of course Mark may have you shooting up in the hills too where you would be 150-200ft higher and shooting down into the canyon.

Fire up Google Earth, zoom in on the range, put the cursor over the place you care about and read the elevation off the middle bottom of the screen.

Later,
Chuck

I have it saved as a way-point on my portable GPS.

It says 2367 ft elevation.

I got it as a gift for taking some people out shooting at the WEGC range & then camping/dirt biking out in the desert. They all had a blast, literally. I guess they felt I deserved a gift and they all chipped in for the GPS unit. My older portable GPS is a battery hog, so this one is very good on battery life.

It's so small, that I mounted it on my 3-gun cart for kicks to test it out one weekend. I saved the way-point. So there...I guess it came in handy.

I've got a family gig/party on Saturday, but I'm going to this weekend's match and show up late to the family gig.

Which GPS do you have? I was thinking about getting one of the portable Garmins for when out hiking/camping.

Don't bring anything you won't use.
Long sleeve khakis are your friend.
Paint the rifle light tan so it does not heat up as much from the sun.

Get a Garmin CSX. It's a good unit especiall since it has the external antenna. The trick to getting good battery life is using lithium batteries. Lasts a long time and works in cold weather.

Garmin foretrex 101

It's an inexpensive, no frills, tiny GPS unit. Can be worn on the wrist like a watch and is smaller than your typical pager. The small size comes in handy.

I can strap it to my dirt bikes handlebars, within view while riding. I do long rides out in the desert ~60-100 mile sometimes, and if I'm riding in unfamiliar terrain (exploring new areas), helps me orient myself to head back to camp.

That Garmin CSX - is nice. That would make a nice replacement for my larger GPS.

Yea, my measurement could have been by the public range area.

It then goes up to your elevation by the long range gully area.

Shot the WEGC 3-Gun match yesterday (Sat).

I took a gamble and decided to shoot my 9mm AR15 carbine for the rifle stages. I was kind of worried about hitting some of the longer range targets with the iron sights and the 9mm. It went surprisingly well with the carbine.

I removed the Aimpoint red-dot scope. I prefer going old school and shooting in the iron sight class. Nice to see my detachable iron sights were still zeroed.

No malfunctions with any of my firearms. I just had a lot of small brain farts, during the stages. I got there about an hour late (9AM). They actually started early or on time for a change. lol Trying to beat the afternoon heat, definitely felt it with the last two stages.

So, I had to sign up, join a squad ASAP, that were already in progress. I didn't have much time to prepare for the stages (loading mags, cleaning the firearms, lubricating them, etc..) and I missed a stage descriptions in the beginning. So, I was starting a little blind and a little rushed.

Well... it's all about having fun, getting some practice in, and learning...
