2019 – Georgia – State Junior Olympics – CMP Three Position Air Rifle JO State Championship

Print

NOTE:

Tue 22 Jan 2019: This blog posting is PRELIMINARY. Matches and schedules are still being approved. This note will be updated or removed as matches become approved.

The sites and dates for the 2019 CMP Three Position Air Rifle Junior Olympics Georgia State Championship have been announced.

Once again, we will have three sites for the state qualifiers.

South – TBD 2019 – Waycross, GA
Match Director: Maurice England
Match Listing: Here
Match Program: Download TBD

Central – Fri-Sun 29-31 Mar 2019 – Griffin, GA
Match Director: Lisa Kelley
Match Listing: Here
Match Program: Download TBD

North – Sat 23 Mar 2019 – Dahlonega, GA
Match Director: JP O’Connor
Match Listing: Here
Match Program: Download from here

All three locations will use electronic targets.

Host sites, match director names and contact information may be found in the CMP competition search web page or directly at the Match Listing links above. Note there separate match listings for all three locations and dates. See the contact information for each location within each match listing.

Contact the appropriate Match Director to obtain a match program and other information for the South & Central locations, and at the download link above for the North location. Registration is via mail to each location.

Send in your entry early. Prime relays fill up early, especially at the North location.

These events are qualifiers for the national events and are EIC points eligible. Hosted and run by the CMP, the National Junior Olympic 3P Air Rifle Championship is a very popular program involving thousands of three position air rifle athletes (sporter and precision) from all over the country.

Qualifying for either of the CMP national events allows the team or individual to compete in BOTH CMP championships: the JO event mentioned above and the CMP National  3P Air Rifle Championship. Both events usually include generous cash prizes.

Because many athletes are only involved in 3P air rifle, they are unaware of the Olympic events and the very important USA Shooting Junior Olympics discussed here. They should participate in both programs if shooting precision air rifle.

USAS JO Logo

The sites and dates for the 2018-2019 USA Shooting Georgia State Rifle & Pistol Junior Olympics Championship have been announced.

For the sixth year in a row, we will have three sites for the state qualifier competitions. I will again serve as the state coordinator, collecting state-wide results and sending out the award medals provided by USA Shooting.

South
Sat 19 Jan 2019 – Waycross, GA
Air Rifle, Air Pistol

Central
Sun 06 Jan 2019 & Fri-Sun 11-13 Jan Jan 2019 – Griffin, GA
Air Rifle, Air Pistol, Smallbore Rifle (3×20)

North
Sat-Sun 19-20 Jan 2019 (rifle & pistol) – Dahlonega, GA
Air Rifle, Air Pistol, Smallbore Rifle (3×20), Sport Pistol

All three locations will use electronic targets for air rifle and air pistol. Central will use paper for smallbore rifle. North will use electronic for smallbore rifle and paper for sport pistol.

You may download the North location Match Program & Entry Form for information and entry instructions. This program also has a complete explanation of all THREE ways to earn an invitation to the National Junior Olympic Shooting Championships in the spring along with updated at-large selection scores from last year.

Contact the appropriate Match Director for the South and Central locations to obtain a match program and other information. Host sites, match director names and contact information may be found in the “2018 State Junior Olympic Host Sites!” spreadsheet link on the USA Shooting National Junior Olympic Program page, along with additional general information.

Send in your entry early. Prime relays fill up early, especially at the North location.

Currently planned for April 2019, the national dates and schedules for the three phases (Men’s Rifle, Women’s Rifle, Pistol) have not been published at this time. Dates and schedules will be published on the same USA Shooting page linked just above.

Be sure to enter, even if you think that you are not “ready” for this competition. Many people were surprised the past few years when they earned an invitation! Others who were good enough missed out because they did not enter.

Renew your USA Shooting membership online, or join online right away so you have your membership number, as required on the JO entry forms.

If you cannot compete in one of the events in your home state, you may compete as a non-resident in any other state’s event to potentially earn an automatic or at-large invitation. Find a host site that is convenient for you and make contact.

Earning Junior Olympics Invitations Note that the posting is from 2014; scores are now out of date and other information is subject to change. Download the North location program at the link near the top of this article for the most recently available selection scores.

Ten Years – Gone In a Flash

Instead of the beautiful scene depicted above in this aerial photograph of the West Point Cemetery at the United States Military Academy, imagine the sky dark and heavy with low solid clouds. Imagine a bitterly cold wind and biting rain stinging our faces and eyes.

Ten years ago today, we stood in this place, felt the cold storm of the weather and our emotions, and laid to rest a great American and a wonderful human being, 1LT Neale Moran Shank. He was gone in a flash a couple of weeks earlier and we gathered for his final rest.

Now, ten years later – which have themselves gone in a flash – the memories are just as vivid of those cold dark days and of his warm bright spirit.

How appropriate that the tenth anniversary of Neale’s burial is Easter Sunday.
