2016 CMP NEW ENGLAND GAMES
SEPTEMBER 14th THRU 18th
 
As you may have heard, the Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP) has selected Camp Ethan Allen Training Site (CEATS) as their site for a trial New England CMP Travel Games event.
 
As one of the sponsors of these games, the VSRPA has worked very hard to get these games located at CEATS, and if we are successful this year:  Then we have a stake in the ground for years to come that will benefit all Vermont and New England competitive shooters for years to come.
 
To have this event be held however, the CMP requires that there be at least 100 competitors signed up, and while we are closing in on that number, we need your help to cross that threshold.
 
As you can see by the attached schedule, this is a soup-to-nuts event.  Popular matches such as the Rimfire Sporter, Garand/Springfield/Vintage and Modern Military Rifles, as-issued 1911 Pistol Match, Military & Police Service Pistol Match and a Pistol Two-Man Team Matches will be fired throughout the Games. Additionally:  An Excellence in Competition (EIC) Pistol Match, EIC .22 Rimfire Pistol Match, and EIC Rifle Match; along with a Carbine Match and Vintage Sniper Match will be sure to challenge competitors of all ages.  For those wanting a more knowledgeable experience, a GSM New Shooter Clinic and Garand Maintenance Clinic will also be available, along with Small Arms Firing School (SAFS) & M16 Match (M16s provided, semi-fire only).
 
For more information on the 2016 CMP New England Games please check out the Official Match program:

Competitors may register via online registration:

or a printable entry form:

Also note that competitors have first chance at buying rifles such as the M1 Garand at prices you will not find lower anywhere else - a great way to own a piece of history that you can compete with!
 
If you need a place to stay, barracks space will be available for 10$ a night; we are looking to have the Mess Hall open for meals; and we are also hoping to allow onsite camping (no hookups however).
 
If you are a VSRPA member and do not own a rifle to compete with, the VSRPA *may* be able to assist with the loan of an AR-15, Garand, Springfield, Vintage Rifle, Carbine or .22 pistol.
 
Please help make this event a success:  Sign-up for one or more events TODAY!
