Registration for the Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP) National Postal Championship will open on Nov. 1, 2015, for any junior shooter involved in 4-H, Scouts, American Legion, club or JROTC air rifle programs. The competition is designed for those juniors interested in testing their three-position skills against some of the top shooters in the country, from the convenience of their home ranges.
Registered shooters will receive official CMP targets by mail to fire record shots upon at each of the three positions: prone, standing and kneeling. Targets will then be mailed back to CMP for scoring. The top shooters of the Postal competition will qualify for the CMP Regional Championships, to be held in Camp Perry, Ohio; Anniston, Ala.; and Sandy, Utah. Postal scores will be available for viewing through CMP’s Competition Tracker system.
To reward the hard work of dedicated junior athletes and coaches, the CMP administers monetary donations towards teams who qualify for the Regional and National events. A scholarship check for $1,000 is also available for each of the Top 3 highest-scoring senior athletes in both the sporter and precision classes at the National competition.
As in years past, Larry and Brenda Potterfield will provide incredible endowment donations to the CMP 3P Championships through the MidwayUSA Foundation for winning teams. The MidwayUSA Foundation is a public charity that helps communities and organizations raise funds to support their youth shooting teams and activities.
