The 2021 NRA Precision Pistol National Championships Match Director, Kenn Boyd, has been the longtime keeper of the U.S. Mayleigh Cup Team history and records. At Camp Atterbury this summer, Kenn gave me some great insight into the Mayleigh Cup Team Match from his archives that date back to the 1930s. Stay tuned for more Mayleigh Cup-related historic articles in the future.
