CMP SAFETY AND MARKSMANSHIP TRAINING THIS MARCH
The Civilian Marksmanship Program is a Congressionally-chartered corporation with the mission of promoting safety and marksmanship for American youth. The NOAAWIVA Sportsmen Inc. club in Oak Hall, a CMP-affiliated club, will provide an opportunity for training in competitive rifle on two Saturdays in March 2023.
The range entrance is located approximately 300 yards east of the intersection of Route 13 and Chincoteague Road. The training will commence at 1000 SHARP on 18 March and again on 25 March. Training will be complete around 1400 (2 PM).
We will begin with safety training so attendees should be there a bit early and not late! The training itself is free, but if attendees want to shoot, the cost is $20 covering both days. Participants need to be 13 or older. Both boys and girls are welcome including those with handicaps. Participants should wear long pants and long sleeves, and bring billed cap, and glasses if they need them to read. Do not bring personal firearms to the range.
