By Ashley Brugnone, CMP Writer
The Civilian Marksmanship Program’s newly added Monthly Match League has now completed its fourth month, allowing some of its leading competitors to surface.
Monthly Matches were held at the South CMP Marksmanship Center in Anniston, AL, as well as the Gary Anderson CMP Marksmanship Center at Camp Perry, OH, in March, April, May and September. Competitors must fire in four or more matches to be eligible for league prizes. The final two Monthly Matches are scheduled for October 18 and November 15.
The new Monthly Match League combines aggregate scores from North and South competitors in certain events offered during the Monthly Matches: 3×20 Sporter, 3×20 Precision, 60 Shot Air Rifle and 60 Shot Air Pistol. Overall winners are chosen from the combined scores accumulated from all six Monthly Matches at both locations. Lowest scores will be dropped.
Current leaders who have participated in the first four matches are:
1. Justin Kleinhans, Port Clinton, OH – 2354-172x
2. Sean Roehrs, Sylvania, OH – 2302-120x
1. Hannah Youngblood, Whitesburg, GA – 2166-54x
2. Jared Minor, Circleville, OH – 1980-32x

A money pool is filled after each Monthly Match from $2 of each shooter’s entry fee, to go towards prizes to the winners. Along with cash prizes, the first three places in each category will receive a CMP plaque. Additional prizes will be given to fourth and fifth place overall winners.
First Place – 30% of prize money
Second Place – 25% of prize money
Third Place – 20% of prize money
Fourth Place – 15% of prize money
Fifth – 10% of prize money
Awards will also be presented to the High Junior in Pistol and Rifle and the Most Improved competitor. Shooters will receive plaques by mail.
