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.

A very rainy start to CMP week
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.

Our March 2015 NRA clinic (partially supported by an NRA Foundation Grant) was a great success despite the cold temperature and over a foot of snow. Sixteen of the eighteen participants who attended the clinic stayed until almost 5:00 p.m. to shoot a full 500 aggregate NRA approved match. That match includes fifty shots for record (ten shots standing- single round loaded at 200 yards; ten shots sitting rapid-fire in sixty seconds; ten shots prone rapid-fire in seventy seconds; and twenty shots fired single round loaded in the prone position).
Headed to the pits
