The Civilian Marksmanship Program’s newly added Monthly Match League has now completed its fourth month, allowing some of its leading competitors to surface. Monthly Matches were held at the South CMP Marksmanship Center in Anniston, AL, as well as the Gary Anderson CMP Marksmanship Center at Camp Perry, OH, in March, April, May and September. Competitors must fire in four or more matches to be eligible for league prizes. The final two Monthly Matches are scheduled for October 18 and November 15.
The Monthly Match League is a new competition between our North and South Monthly Match competitors. Combined aggregate scores from four of the six matches are compared to determine winners of cash prizes.
The new Monthly Match League combines aggregate scores from North and South competitors in certain events offered during the Monthly Matches: 3x20 Sporter, 3x20 Precision, 60 Shot Air Rifle and 60 Shot Air Pistol. Overall winners are chosen from the combined scores accumulated from all six Monthly Matches at both locations. Lowest scores will be dropped.
With two months to go in the competition, Justin Kleinhans of Port Clinton, OH, is the current leader of the 3x20 Precision and the 60 Shot Rifle competitions.
