Sock Sniper has been suspended for 2016.  We will re-examine opening it in 2017.

Have fun and raise money for a worthy cause in this assassination-style, sock-knitting competition! Like a sniper, the goal of this game is to take out your target, from a distance, with skill, stealth and precision. Prior to the beginning of the mission, you will be provided with a dossier on your targets vital information and a choice of four weapons (patterns) with which to do the deed. Take them out quickly, because you never know who might be coming for you! 

Registration for the game is Open!   Registration will close on August 23, 2015 at Midnight (Central Time US) and for Non-Combatants on August 31 at midnight.  Battle will commence on September 1, 2015.
