First-Day Ceremonies Planned
Once again, the colorful First Shot Ceremony will officially open the matches. This year’s ceremony is on Monday afternoon, 7 July. The 2008 First Shot Speaker is John Sigler, President of the NRA. Other planned highlights include a military band performance, Air National Guard jet fly-by, and Army National Guard parachute jump. The ceremony, which takes place at the end of the first day of the Pistol Small Arms Firing School, will be followed by a “National Matches Visitor Reception” in the Camp Perry Club House.

New Home for Airgun Competition
The 2008 National Matches will debut a new home for the air gun matches that formerly took place in a small air gun range on Commercial Row. The new Camp Perry CMP Competition Center will have 80 firing points equipped with electronic targets. The new facility will host a 60-shot air pistol event with finals on on July 13, and a special 60-shot air rifle match will be fired on the new range on July 15, along with other multi-day events.
