“World Series of Shooting” Returns to Camp Perry
The National Rifle & Pistol Championships, AKA The National Matches, is a shooting tradition that has been around since 1903 and has been hosted at Camp Perry, Ohio, for 107 of those 111 years. That tradition continues this summer as the 2014 National matches – conducted jointly by the Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP), NRA and Ohio National Guard – return starting July 6.
During the event, the nation’s top civilian and military marksmen will face off in various categories of competition. The National Matches include the CMP National Trophy Rifle and Pistol Matches, the Pistol and Rifle Small Arms Firing Schools, CMP Games rifle events and the NRA National Pistol, Smallbore Rifle and Highpower Rifle Championships.
Things kick off with the Junior Small Bore Rifle Camp, continuing with various banquets, pistol and rifle championship matches and awards ceremonies, all wrapping up in the second week of August. The full calendar is available online and additional information is available on the NRA Competitive Shooting website.
Online registration for the National Matches is available here. If you won’t be shooting but you would still like to get involved with the 2014 National Matches, the application to volunteer is available here.
