The League holds four formal internal competitions per year. Three of these Quarterly Competitions are held during the last week of March, June and September. The fourth, an Annual Marksmanship Competition, is held in December at the Atglen Clubhouse . This is a true marksmanship competition based upon age groups and shooting proficiency. We award over $800 worth of prizes. All participants of the Annual Marksmanship Competition must complete the NRA Basic Rifle Instruction course in order to be eligible to enter (see Safety Instruction section for details). Our last Annual Marksmanship Competition was held on December 10, 2017 in the Atglen Clubhouse from 1 to 5 PM. In addition to our local competitions, our youngsters participate in postal matches and attend regional competitions under the guidance of our Smallbore Program Director.

Shooters were classified into one of four divisions by their ranking in the Winchester/NRA Small Bore Rifle Program. All shooters fired six targets from various positions that they use in the Small Bore Rifle Qualification Program. Top shooters in each division received a choice of gifts from the prize table. Second and third place shooters in each division also received a choice from the prize table. All other shooters received participation prizes. In all, over $800 worth of prizes were awarded. Shown above are most of the happy participants. Congratulations to all. Some of the prizes awarded and the day's activities are shown below:
Top Rifle Shot of the Year for 2017
Tabitha A. earned this year's "Top Shot of the Year" award at the December 10th Annual Marksmanship Competition. Tabitha fired a score of 47 out of a possible 50 point score. Amazing!!! All participants fired 10 rounds at two, 5 bullseye target from any shooting position of their choosing. Distance was 50 feet. To get a "47", each of the 10 shots had to be within an area smaller than a dime in the center of each target. Quite an accomplishment. Tabitha is shown receiving her "Bronze Eagle Award" from Mr. John McGill, Instructor and Coach of our High Power Rifle Team. Tabitha also gets her name engraved on the "Top Shot" Marksmanship Plaque that hangs in the Atglen Clubhouse. Congratualtions on a job well done Tabitha!!!!!
