CAMP PERRY, Ohio; ANNISTON, Ala. – The Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP) will be holding the final three Monthly Matches during Fall 2015. There, shooters will have the chance to be ranked among Monthly Match participants from across the country for a chance at monetary rewards and bragging rights during the new Monthly Match League.

With events geared toward introducing new marksmen to the world of competition shooting and events to challenge the more experienced shooters, there’s a little something for everyone at the Monthly Matches.

The six Monthly Matches are held at our South Competition Center in Anniston, AL, as well as our newly renovated Gary Anderson CMP Competition Center in Camp Perry, OH. Staple events fired include a Junior 3×20, Junior 3×10, Novice Prone, 60 Shot Air Rifle Standing and 60 Shot Air Pistol.

During the League, all six matches will be combined and prizes will be awarded to the overall winners from both North and South, based on aggregate scores.

FamilyFun The last three Monthly Matches will be held:

  • September 19
  • October 10
  • November 14

A running total of qualification scores will be recorded for shooters at both locations, with the top four scores for each participant used to determine the overall winners. Lowest scores will be dropped. Because the winners must have fired in four or more matches to be eligible, shooters are encouraged to sign up for as many Monthly Matches as possible for better odds at cash and donated prizes.

Eligible events for the Monthly Match League include:

  • Pistol 60 Shots (No PPP)
  • Rifle 60 Shots
  • Sporter 3×20
  • Precision 3×20 
  • The CMP Monthly Matches are a great way to spend time as a family. Novice Prone event is designed for young shooters aged 8-12 who are just beginning their shooting careers and introduces them to the exciting world of competitive shooting in a safe and fun way.

A money pool will be filled after each Monthly Match from $2 of each shooter’s entry fee. Consequentially, the more shooters who sign up for the matches, the larger the prize pool will be when prizes are awarded.

Along with cash prizes, the first three places in each category will receive a CMP plaque. Additional prizes will be given to fourth and fifth place overall winners.

Prizes include:

  • First Place – 30% of prize money
  • Second Place – 25% of prize money
  • Third Place – 20% of prize money
  • Fourth Place – 15% of prize money
  • Fifth – 10% of prize money

 

League Awards will also be presented to the High Junior in Pistol and Rifle and the Most Improved competitor. These shooters will receive plaques by mail.

Events featured in the Monthly Match League include Pistol 60 Shots (No PPP), Rifle 60 Shots, Sporter 3×20 and Precision 3×20. Overall winners at the end of the six sessions will receive a monetary award from the prize pool.

The CMP Competition Centers are equipped with 80 firing points with Megalink electronic targets. The Megalink targets allow for scores to be instantly displayed on small monitors for each shooter, as well as on large television screens for spectators to observe. Scores will be automatically uploaded to CMP’s Competition Tracker website at http://ct.thecmp.org/app/v1/index.php for viewing.
