Due to the current travel restrictions between Canada, the U.S. and Mexico, the 2021 Lapua Monarch Cup Series has been postponed until 2022. These matches will have a silhouette format, which is one of the most popular shooting disciplines in North America and an NRA competition staple.

Here's an excerpt from a recent Lapua press release about the news, including the total prize purse.

“The Lapua Monarch Cup will be the must-attend event of the silhouette shooting world for 2022. Hosted in three different countries: Canada, United States and Mexico, the Lapua Monarch Cup will take place throughout the summer and fall of 2022. Competitors earn points from each match within their respective classification (Master, AAA, AA and A), giving all shooters an opportunity for the $25,000 in cash prizes.”

“In light of the continued global health challenges with COVID-19, the Monarch Cup Board of Directors made the difficult decision to postpone the Lapua Monarch Cup to 2022,” said Monarch Cup Director, Daniel Salazer. “The uncertainty regarding international travel and the concern for the safety of our friends and competitors led to this disappointing decision. We vow to make the 2022 Lapua Monarch Cup an event to remember.”

Last year, COVID-19 forced the cancellation of the 2020 Smallbore Rifle Silhouette National Championships in Canada, the U.S. and Mexico, which in turn caused the 2020 Lapua Monarch Cup to be postponed. Lapua's Director of Sales and Marketing, Adam Braverman, shed light on the decision-making process to postpone the 2021 Lapua Monarch Cup.

“Lapua is saddened that this difficult decision had to be made, but we know it’s the right one. The board and Lapua’s top priority is of the health and safety of the international shooting community. We are excited to announce that we will continue as the Title Sponsor of the Monarch Cup for 2022.”

Silhouette shooters should stay tuned for more updates on next year's new series.
