CMP New England Games
Returning in 2017!
Save The Date -- Sept 20-24 2017
For those who missed out on the exciting inaugural event in 2016, don't worry! Planning for the 2017 New England CMP Games in Jericho, Vt., is already underway.
The New England Games is held at Camp Ethan Allen Training Site and is hosted by the Vermont State Rifle and Pistol Association, along with the Burlington Rifle and Pistol Club. A variety of matches fired during the event accommodate both rifle and pistol, new and experienced marksmen alike.
Popular matches such as the Rimfire Sporter, Garand/Springfield/Vintage and Modern Military Match, As-Issued 1911 Pistol Match, Military & Police Service Pistol Match and a Pistol Two-Man Team Match are fired throughout the Games. Additionally, an EIC Pistol Match, .22 Rimfire Pistol Match, Carbine Match and Vintage Sniper Match will be sure to challenge competitors of all ages.
For those wanting a more knowledgeable experience, a GSM New Shooter Clinic and Garand Maintenance Clinic is also available, along with a Small Arms Firing School (SAFS). A staple event at the National Matches in Camp Perry, Ohio, since 1918, SAFS allows students to receive classroom and hands-on involvement in a safe, fun and engaging environment.
Instruction during SAFS is led by qualified CMP staff and experienced CMP Military Instructors is geared toward new shooters, so no previous firearm experience is required. Students participating in the clinic will learn gun safety, target shooting skills, positioning, basic rifle mechanics and will also live fire on the range in a true M16 EIC match.
Housing will be available on post in the form of transient quarters with a shared bath as well as barracks with large open bays and smaller bays for small groups or families.
