Although it is CMP’s hope to hold our upcoming events, please keep in mind that we may have to cancel due to COVID-19 issues. For those events that we do conduct, we will follow the appropriate state’s guidelines and recommendations. We continue to monitor the venue states’ guidelines and adjust our procedures based on those guidelines and common sense. As always, the safety of our customers and employees is our priority.

CMP CANCELS NEW ENGLAND GAMES AND HIGHPOWER EVENTS
The Vermont Department of Health website states: “If you plan to travel to Vermont in a personal vehicle, you may complete either a 14-day quarantine or a 7-day quarantine followed by a negative test in your home state and enter Vermont without further quarantine restrictions.”
Accordingly, the CMP has regretfully cancelled the New England CMP Games & CMP Highpower matches which were scheduled for 14-20 September 2020. We look forward to hosting a great match in Vermont next year.
The CMP follows prudent health practices and is monitoring conditions of all future event locations and will continue to announce cancellations on our website at www.TheCMP.org and through social media.
The following list of events is not all-inclusive but covers significant activities on the CMP calendar that have been cancelled. View a full list of cancellations at https://thecmp.org/l/cmp-cancellations/.

CMP hopes to offer smaller matches from time to time, depending upon state limitations, and will post those as they become possible.

2020 CMP NATIONAL RIFLE AND PISTOL MATCHES CANCELLED
After thoughtful consideration and reflection, the Board of Directors of the Civilian Marksmanship Program announces the cancellation of the 2020 National Matches at Camp Perry.
“This decision was not arrived at lightly, but was prompted by restrictions resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. These matches date back to 1903 and have been held at Camp Perry since 1906,” said Judith Legerski, CMP Board Chairman.
“The health and safety of our competitors, participants, vendors, military support, volunteers and staff members is of the upmost importance — overriding even the historical imperative of maintaining the continuity of the Matches,” agreed Legerski, with Chief Operating Officer Mark Johnson and Programs Chief Christie Sewell.
“We were unable to come up with a manner in which we could safely produce the Matches. Housing and pit duty were amongst the many insurmountable problems faced by the CMP Board,” Legerski explained.
The CMP looks forward to the 2021 National Matches at Camp Perry as the best marksmanship celebration ever! In the meantime, please stay safe and healthy at home, as we prepare for the new normal ahead of us.
All CMP operations have been shut down since mid-March and a full resumption of business remains undetermined. Full refunds will be made to those who have already registered.
