Default New England Match Report

I attended the New England CMP games at Camp Ethan Allen, Jerico, VT. On Sept 15, 16 and 17 and had a great time. I checked in on Thursday afternoon and was greeted by the CMP staff . They got me squared away and assigned me to a room in one of the barracks. The fee was $10.00 per night and the room was spacious and clean. The rooms have two bunk beds each but only two people were booked in each room. There was plenty of storage and a refrigerator. Each floor has a bath area with individual toilet and shower stalls. There in also a common area with a sink, microwave oven and large screen TV with comfortable seating.

The complex was vast with many shooting ranges, most with up to date target racks. The Vermont State Rifle and Pistol Association ( someone please correct me if I got the name wrong) had catered meals brought in each day and served for a nominal fee.

The CMP did and outstanding job along with the VSR&P and the Vermont National Guard to set -up and execute this eve



Award were presented by Gary Anderson. Mark Johnson , Vice Chairman Cris Stone and Program Chief Christie Sewell along many other staff from Anniston and Ohio were there to keep things running smoothly. 155 shooters attended and the CMP has already booked the Camp for next September. They are hoping for 250 shooters next year. So if you were on the fence about going please sign up. It's a blast! Eddie

Some pictures here if you haven't seen. Looks like a beautiful range.

SE facing light? That's gotta be tough on the 1st relay.

Great write up! It was an awesome event, and well planned and run. Just to add, that Mark also said the CMP will be bringing the electronic targets up next year for the hp range. I've never fired on a more naturally beautiful range/setting, nestled in a valley of the Green Mountains, and as the CMP staff said, all the Vermont folks involved were top notch hosts. The base accomodations far exeeded what I was expecting, and the catered 3 meals a day for $24.50, hot breakfast & dinner and bagged lunch, were all good home cooked/made meals.
It's on my calendar for nest year.

P.S. The CMP had three of the electronic targets set-up for trial use. One gentleman I met bought a 1942 vintage Springfield M1 field grade and ammunition. He wasn't going to shoot it the match because the M1 was not sighted in. The CMP staff sent him to the electronic range and helped him dial in his new rifle and he competed with us on Saturday morning.

Great write up. I think if I were to travel for any of the road games it would be this one. Ill definitely keep it in mind for next year. Did they do any EIC matches?
