Gary Anderson Invitational - OH

The event is being held at both the CMP-GA and CMP-OH Ranges. Each range will be run simultaneously and all scores will be uploaded to the CMP’s Competition Tracker website. Scores from both matches will be compiled to determine winners.

Both ranges have 80 firing points equipped with electronic targets. All shots are instantly displayed on

monitors beside each shooter and on display screens visible to spectators in the center area of the range. All firing is controlled by a computer operations center in the middle of the range. 

This junior competition began in 1996 as the Atlanta 500 Air Rifle Championship. From 1997 through 2000, it was known as the Wolf Creek 600. In 2001, the match location changed from the Wolf Creek Olympic Complex near Atlanta to the Army Marksmanship Unit ranges at Fort Benning, GA. That year the Wolf Creek Association renamed the match the Gary Anderson Invitational.


In 2009 the CMP took over the sponsorship of the Gary Anderson Invitational and conducted the match at the CMP Competition Center - South in Anniston, Alabama. The match is now hosted at both the CMP Competition Center – South, and the Gary Anderson CMP Competition Center, located at Camp Perry in Port Clinton, Ohio. The National Three Position Air Rifle Council sanctions this three-position air rifle invitational as an open CMP Cup match.


Three-Position Air Rifle Tournament:

This tournament has four competition events: Individual Sporter, Individual Precision, Team Sporter and Team Precision. All competitors will fire a three-position 3X20 course of fire and the top eight shooters in sporter and precision from each relay will shoot a 10-shot final that will be fired immediately following each relay. For individual rankings, the 10-shot final round scores will be added to the 60-shot scores of the competitors who had the top eight sporter and precision class 60-shot totals (Rule 10.1.3.) The individual 3X20 scores fired by the four members on each team will be used to determine team winners. Final round scores are not used for team totals.

RULES AND SANCTIONING: The competition will be governed by the 2016-2018 National Standard ThreePosition Air Rifle Rules. Copies of the rules may be downloaded from the CMP website at

The match is sanctioned by the National Three-Position Air Rifle Council as a CMP Cup Match so that scores may be recognized as National Records and competitors can earn EIC credit points that count towards earning the Junior Distinguished Badge.

ELIGIBILITY: All competitors must be school-age juniors (grade 12 or below) who comply with Rule 3.1 of the National Standard Rules. Team entries may represent schools or clubs.

COURSE OF FIRE: Three-Position Air Rifle 3x20 plus Final. See rule 5.3.3 for time limits.
