The Good Old Days

by Hap Rocketto When I made my first trip to Camp Perry I was overwhelmed by the long awaited and anticipated experience.  Day after day of shooting, free meals three times a day in the Mess Hall, a Spartan but adequate bunk in a hut, the company of like minded souls, and Commercial Row. I […]

Going to Perry? Get on Twitter

The NRA created a Twitter account to communicate with Camp Perry competitors of any changes or new information pertaining to the National Rifle and Pistol Championships. The NRA’s Twitter page will be particularly useful if there are rain delays or other conditions that require competitors to evacuate the range. The NRA will “Tweet” to notify […]

202 days until Camp Perry…well, now 120…

UPDATE: Found a photo of inside building 1002 on Flickr. 5° degrees this morning here in eastern Massachusetts on the first day of 2009. No more than 2 years ago, I used to enjoy the New England winters, but after last year’s snow storms (and several hundred tablets of Ibuprofen for my back), I’m finding myself a […]

 Beer can fix

Beer can fix

Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on how you look at it), I discovered that I didn’t have enough windage clicks on my scope during team day–better to happen during team day than the first day of anysights!

Dan Feldbusch over on the NRA’s Camp Perry Blog was kind enough to mention us on their site (http://www.nrablog.com/2008/07/hopkinton-prone-matches.html). The crew at nrablog.com are doing a great job of covering the National Matches. -Dan Holmes

Erik Hoskins is heading west on interstate 90 making his way to Camp Perry for 3P and was kind enough to send in a picture of the Erie Canal to document his painfully boring journey. To learn more about the history of the Erie Canal go here (it actually is sort of interesting). We’ll be posting some […]

2007 Camp Perry Results

As happens each year, the NRA has wiped out the previous year’s Camp Perry results (2007) in order to display the upcoming year’s results (2008). I’m not sure why they don’t provide a link to the archived 2007 results each year. Anyways…knowing the 2007 results would soon disappear, I archived them and published them at http://perry.pronematch.com/
