CAMP PERRY, Ohio – -(AmmoLand.com)- For those looking for an air gun competition and an escape from the cold of the winter months, the Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP) has begun registration for its annual Camp Perry Open – an air rifle and air pistol event held each year in Northwest Ohio for over a decade.
Featuring a variety of 3×20 and 60 Shot categories, the Camp Perry Open is set to fire Jan. 18-20, 2019, for adult and junior competitors of all experience levels. An adaptive shooting category is also offered under the World Shooting Para Sport classification system to provide competitive opportunities to all athletes.
Outside of regular competition, the Camp Perry Open Super Finals, which is undoubtedly the highlight of the Camp Perry Open, merges competition and creativity as costumes, music, noisemakers and other colorful elements flow and echo throughout the range. Competitors as well as spectators are encouraged to participate in the action by dressing in store-bought or homemade eye-catching attire (though it is not required to be a part of the fun).
Guests who have never seen the Super Finals are welcome to watch the spectacle take place on Saturday, Jan. 19 2018. Come and see the chaos unfold or join in on the excitement!
Along with real competition experience, those participating in the Camp Perry Open will be given the rare occasion to compete alongside some of the most talented marksmen in the country, including members of the Army Marksmanship Unit and the USA Shooting team, along with talented upcoming junior competitors who are leading the next generation of excellence.
