JERICHO, Vt. – Registration is now available for the Civilian Marksmanship Program’s (CMP) annual New England Games, Highpower Rifle and Pistol Matches! The outdoor event is set to be held Sept. 16-24, 2023, at the Camp Ethan Allen National Guard Training Site in Vermont.
Hosted jointly by Camp Ethan Allen National Guard Training Site and the Vermont State Rifle and Pistol Association (VSRPA), the New England Games features a full lineup for guests to enjoy, including recreational-style rifle and pistol CMP Games events as well as Highpower Rifle opportunities.
Popular events like the Garand/Springfield/Vintage and Modern Military (GSMM), Rimfire Sporter, Carbine and Vintage Sniper matches combine classic and contemporary rifle competitions that are suitable for those just beginning as well as those seasoned in the sport. Additionally, highpower rifle matches like the 80 Shot Aggregate series, a 4-Man Team event and a Service Rifle Excellence-In-Competition (EIC) match offer even more exciting challenges on the range, fired on CMP’s own line of outdoor electronic targets.
Pistol athletes may look forward to Service Pistol and .22 Rimfire Pistol EIC events, along with As-Issued 1911 Pistol and Military & Police Service Pistol matches. Pistol also includes 900 Aggregates for .22, Centerfire and .45 caliber firearms and a new Service Revolver EIC Match.
For educational opportunities, the CMP will host a Pistol Marksmanship 101, providing hands-on training on the firing line. Participants in the course review gun safety, target shooting skills, positioning, mechanics and more. All firearms and equipment will be provided. For rifle, a Basic Class will be held at New England Games where participants may learn more about the discipline within a classroom setting.
Also, an M1 Maintenance Clinic will give participants specific instruction on how to care for and preserve the historic M1 Garand rifle, as the GSMM New Shooter Clinic helps competitors discover more about the fundamentals of the match before hitting the range.
