The Civilian Marksmanship Program’s (CMP) annual Camp Perry Open, set to resume May 19-22, will offer a full schedule of air gun opportunities as well as a corresponding smallbore rifle match – all held at the Camp Perry National Guard Training Facility in Port Clinton.
Registration is open and capacity is limited, so early registration is encouraged.
Competitions offered at the 2023 Camp Perry Open include a junior 3x20 air rifle match and 60 Shot air rifle and air pistol competitions for adults and juniors, with adaptive athletes also welcomed and encouraged to attend. Additionally, a free air gun clinic will provide an educational opportunity for participants. All air gun events will be held within CMP’s Gary Anderson Competition Center indoor air gun range.
Outside, a 3x20 smallbore rifle match will take place on Camp Perry’s Petrarca Range, conveniently located next to the air gun facility. The match will be fired on KTS electronic targets at 50 meters.
Adding even more excitement to the Camp Perry Open will be the event’s celebrated Super Final – featuring costumes, music and other attention-grabbing effects that bring fun to the match. During the Super Final, the top 38 competitors from each of the day’s air rifle and air pistol qualification round meet on the firing line to compete in an intense elimination event. The competition goes on until only one athlete remains standing in each discipline.
