Those highpower rifle competitors looking for the chance to earn true competition practice before the annual National Matches kicks off this summer should sign up for the Civilian Marksmanship Program’s (CMP) new series of Highpower Warm-Up Matches – held on the ranges of Camp Perry in Ohio and at the CMP Talladega Marksmanship Park in Alabama. The series offers a first-hand preview of CMP’s highpower (HP) events that will be presented on the National Matches schedule in July.
“We already had a weekend event in June at Camp Perry and wanted to add additional matches,” said Christina Roguski, competition program coordinator. “We also wanted to bring back a version of the HP Regional Event that used to be held in Talladega. We thought having similar events at the two locations would be great for our competitors and our staff to prepare for Nationals.”
The Highpower Warm-Up Matches will fire at Camp Perry, June 20-23, while Talladega’s Warm Up event will take place June 27-30. All Warm-Up matches will be held on CMP’s outdoor line of electronic targets.
Competitions on the schedule at both locations include:
- 2-Person Team Match
- 30 Shot Rifle
- 80 Shot Rifle
- 3×600 Mid-Range
- EIC Service Rifle
Camp Perry will also include special Ohio Rifle & Pistol Association awards for the ORPA State Championship Match (800 Aggregate) and the Ohio Governor’s Match (the EIC Service Rifle Match).
