Additional details on the 2021 NRA National Matches at Camp Atterbury have been released, including the preliminary match program. If you haven't registered yet, please do so here.
For starters, two of the most experienced tournament officials in the history of NRA championships will be at the helm this summer—Mid Tompkins and Kenn Boyd. Tompkins will be the match director for the High Power and Smallbore Championships, while Boyd will be in the same role for the Precision Pistol Championship. Tompkins needs little introduction, as one of the winningest competitors in the history of rifle shooting. As for Boyd, he has been a longtime Precision Pistol referee and match official at both the NRA Pistol Championships and the Bianchi Cup.

The NRA High Power, Precision Pistol and Smallbore National Championships at Camp Atterbury will be supported by the Indiana State Rifle and Pistol Association (ISRPA). As the NRA conducts its High Power, Precision Pistol and Smallbore National Championships, the ISRPA will be holding concurrent events that will be open to all shooters.
Regarding base access, previous competitors at Camp Atterbury will notice a big difference—the base's main gate at Cyclone Street is closed due to renovation. Follow the detour signs to the Schoolhouse Road Gate entrance.

At base entry, each person will need to have a driver’s license or official government issued ID available for inspection. In addition, be sure to check out the Indiana National Guard Camp Atterbury COVID-19 policies.
The NRA also has its own statement regarding COVID-19 and the 2021 NRA National Championships.
While the COVID-19 pandemic continues, competitor and staff safety is our primary concern. The NRA will follow federal, state and local regulations during this summer’s events. It is possible that due to COVID-19 the NRA and ISRPA events may become altered in order to promote better safety or remain compliant. It is possible that any or all of our events may become altered or at worse canceled due to the pandemic impact or significant changes. We do not anticipate canceling this summer’s events. We will continue to monitor the federal, state and local regulations and issue and issue further statements as needed.
As for lodging, there are several options. The most convenient are on-base, with Camp Atterbury offering hotel-style buildings with suites, along with standard rooms, and “open military squad bay”-style quarters available by reservation. Camp Atterbury also offers a limited number of RV spots, plus the MWR campground and cabins. Something to note: Lodging is controlled by the Camp Atterbury Lodging Office, not the NRA.
This summer will mark the debut of the new Precision Pistol and Smallbore Rifle ranges at Camp Perry.
Dates for the First Shot Opening Ceremonies and the Awards Ceremonies will be posted on-site at the Statistical and Awards Offices.
