The Travel Games, which have been a regular part of the CMP schedule for the last decade, are regional competitions created to give competitors the chance to participate in beloved CMP events found at the National Matches, but on a much smaller scale.
Events fired at the Travel Games include the John C. Garand, Springfield, Vintage Military, Rimfire Sporter, Carbine and Vintage Sniper Matches. The Travel Games also feature a growing field of pistol opportunities, to provide guests with even more competitive avenues, and also include the recent addition of a Small Arms Firing School for new and experienced marksmen. Other informative clinics are conducted throughout the Games Matches by qualified CMP staff members as well.
This year, the CMP is introducing its Club Pay Back Program, where $5.00 per competitor will be awarded to any CMP Affiliated Club that has 5 or more of their members attending and participating in the marksmanship competition matches held at the event. The club members will need to present his or her club ID card at any of our Travel Games.
Please visit the links on the bottom of the page to find out more information about a specific location.
Participants at the Travel Games rifle events also get a first-hand look at CMP Targets – an electronic target system, powered by Kongsberg Technology Systems, that displays immediate shot scores on a monitor beside each competitor. The use of the targets eliminates the need for pit duty, creating faster match completions and easing the physical wear for competitors.
Popular Travel Games events are also featured at some of our other matches throughout the year, including the Talladega D-Day Matches and Talladega 600 at our new state-of-the-art outdoor facility – Talladega Marksmanship Park in Talladega, Alabama. Competitors may also sign up for Games Events during the National Rifle Matches, held each year on the historic ranges at Camp Perry, Ohio.
Cancellation requests may be submitted by mail, email [email protected] or phone (419) 635-2141 ext. 706 or 714. Cancellations received at least 30 days prior to a competitor's first event will receive a full refund. Cancellation requests received between 29 days and one day prior to the event entered receive a 50% refund of all fees paid, no-shows on the day of the match or cancellation requests received on the day of or after the match will not receive a refund unless the cancellation is caused by bereavement, a medical emergency or CMP error. The CMP cancellation policy is designed to discourage no-shows and to encourage competitors who know they will not be able to fill their entry slots to report cancellations as soon as possible. No refund will be given if match is cancelled due to inclement weather.
