Our High Power team traveled to the National Matches at Camp Perry, Ohio in mid-July. Almost all members stayed on base in the newly constructed huts.
After arriving we had one day for shopping on Commercial Row and getting ready for the matches by shooting squadded practice if you wished to do so. But nothing prepared us for the rain we had on Friday during the Hearst Doubles match.
The next few days were taken up with CMP “Games” matches (Garand, Springfield, Vintage, and Vintage Sniper, etc.) Then we got down to business by shooting the six-person NTT Match on Monday, followed by the NTI and Presidents 100.
On Wednesday evening we went to the Awards ceremony to see Jeremy and others receive their Distinguished Riflemen medals.
We wrapped up our 2015 National Matches experience by shooting the four-person Rumbold team and did much better than last year…shooting a combined score of 1917-48x. Rumbold members were John O., Carol B., Matt Z., and myself.
