LET’S MEET OUR NATIONAL MATCHES SUPPORT TEAM MEMBERS!
Often times, we focus on those who are on the firing lines at our CMP events, but those behind the firing lines are just as important. During the National Matches, CMP’s Support Team members serve as essential aides to CMP staff on and off the ranges. Our Support Team is comprised of a diverse group from a variety of fascinating backgrounds, and here, we’re excited to learn more about them!
