TALLADEGA, Ala. – The Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP), working toward resuming its regular competition schedule, is now welcoming new or experienced rifle marksmen to sign up for the Talladega High Power CMP Cup Match, ready to fire Thursday, July 23, through Sunday, July 26, 2020.
The regional event, held at the CMP’s own Talladega Marksmanship Park, will feature three, 1000-point aggregate rifle matches, a two-person team match and an Excellence-In-Competition (EIC) Rifle competition. Each match will be fired on Talladega’s 600-yard, electronic target range. With portable monitors next to each firing point, shots are instantly recorded. The entire electronic system is also controlled by CMP staff members from center line, allowing automatic target line changes – meaning no pit duty will be required for the matches.
Winners of the events will be awarded medals or plaques, along with cash prizes. Category awards for overall senior, junior and woman will also be awarded, based on participation.
