The Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP) will be returning to the Tar Heel state to celebrate the 10th anniversary of one of the Eastern CMP Games. Rifle and pistol competitors are welcome to participate April 29 - May 3 at Camp Butner, NC, for a weekend of rivalry, fellowship and fun.

Rifle events scheduled to take place at the 2016 Eastern Games include the Garand/Springfield/Vintage and Modern Military Match, Vintage Sniper Match, and the popular Rimfire Sporter and Carbine Matches.

Pistol enthusiasts will be able to look forward to an As-Issued 1911 Match, Military and Police Service Match, Two-Man Team Match and EIC Match. Additionally, the new .22 Rimfire EIC Pistol Match, introduced at last year’s Eastern Games, will be making a return for those working towards a Rimfire Distinguished Badge.

For anyone wanting to hone his or her skills a High Power Shooting Clinic, Pistol Clinic and GSM New Shooter Clinic will take place throughout the week. The Eastern CMP Games will also conduct a Small Arms Firing School (SAFS) for new and experienced shooters. A staple event at the National Matches in Camp Perry, OH, since 1918, students in North Carolina will receive classroom and hands-on training in a safe and engaging environment.

The SAFS instruction is geared toward new shooters, so no previous firearm experience is required. Students participating in the clinic will learn gun safety, target shooting skills, positioning, and basic rifle mechanics by qualified CMP instructors and will fire in a real M16 match. There, students will be able to better learn range commands and see how a match is conducted.

A barbecue cookout will also be held during the weekend as a thank you to all of our wonderful shooters and guests. Relax, mingle with CMP staff members and receive new friends as delicious food is served on the beautiful wooded grounds of Camp Butner.
