Camp Butner, North Carolina
29 April- 8 May 2016
The 10th Eastern CMP Games and Creedmoor Cup Matches are co-sponsored by the Civilian Marksmanship Program and Creedmoor Sports, Inc. and will be held at Camp Butner, North Carolina. All interested shooters, whether new or experienced, recreation-oriented shooters or national championship contenders are invited to participate in these unique, national-level competitions.
Rifle events offered during the Eastern CMP Games include the Garand-Springfield-Vintage & Modern Military Matches, where competitors have the opportunity to fire any or all of these rifles throughout the week. The M1 Carbine Match is fired from 100 yards, while the Rimfire Sporter Match uses .22 rifles from 50 and 25 yards with open or scoped sights, as well as tactical rifles. Both events have quickly become challenging and fun matches for new and experienced shooters alike. The Vintage Sniper Match is a two-person team match, utilizing scoped rifles from the Korean War, World War II or earlier, upon sandbags. Teammates take turns as both shooter and spotter in this growing match.
The Garand-Springfield-Military (GSM) New Shooter Clinic is recommended for all new shooters to the CMP Games, as well as those who may not be firing, but simply would like to learn more about the events. The clinic includes classroom instruction, demonstrations and dry-fire position practice – all led by decorated Olympian, Gary Anderson, and CMP GSM Master Instructors. A Garand Maintenance Clinic is also offered for those wanting to learn more about taking care of these historic rifles.
The Small Arms Firing School (SAFS) is suggested for all new shooters or anyone interested in knowing more about gun safety and target shooting skills. Students in the course will learn positioning, equipment usage and firing practices – among other things – taught by qualified CMP coaches. Rifles and ammunition are provided for the Rifle SAFS. At the conclusion of the school, students fire in a true M16 EIC Match.
Pistol events are also offered during the Eastern Games, including the 40 Shot (President’s 100) Match and the CMP EIC Service Pistol Match and the CMP .22 Rimfire Pistol EIC Match , where competitors may earn points towards their prestigious Distinguished Badges. The CMP As-Issued 1911 Match allows competitors to fire the pistol from 25 yards, with both their right and left hands, while the Military & Police Service Pistol Match incorporates service pistols into a competitive setting. A Pistol 2-Man Team Match is also maintained as a fun addition to the CMP Pistol Match lineup.
The Pistol Fundamentals Clinic offers instruction on gun safety, range procedures and basic pistol shooting. Marksmen who have not fired in previous matches are encouraged to attend this clinic to learn more about the sport.
The CMP Rifle Sales is available throughout the Eastern CMP Games, with a special “competitor only” sale held on a designated day to treat those competing in the matches.
