PHOENIX, Ariz. – The 12th Annual Western Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP) Games and Creedmoor Cup Matches will return to the Ben Avery Shooting Facility Oct. 9-18, 2015, to a growing crowd of enthusiastic competitors. New and experienced marksmen alike are welcome to participate in these recreation-oriented, national-level competitions.
Popular CMP Games events being featured during the Western Games include the Garand, Springfield, Vintage Military, Modern Military, Rimfire Sporter, Carbine and Vintage Sniper matches. A CMP Games Match Clinic will also be held to give competitors a more in-depth look at these challenging events.
A rifle Small Arms Firing School will also be making a return for the third consecutive year. The school is designed to help beginners learn the fundamentals of marksmanship and competition shooting, as well as to further the knowledge of experienced marksmen. Participants are teamed up with experienced CMP Rifle Master Instructors for on-the-line training and instruction, with rifles and ammunition provided.
For those interested in purchasing a few CMP items before hitting the firing line, a sales tent will be on hand all four days of the Western Games. Each day will end with a casual reception and an opportunity for fellowship with other competitors and CMP staff members.
Join us for a week of competition, new experiences and fun! More information about the Western CMP Games and registration forms can be found by visiting Western CMP Games & CMP Highpower Rifle Matches.
