The League holds three formal internal competitions per year. Two of these Competitions are held during the last week of April and September. The third, 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. Trophies are awarded for the first two competitions and prizes are awarded at the Annual League Competition. 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 in December, 2023 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.

All other participants got to choose a prize based upon their ranking in their Division. Shown above are the happy participants. Congratulations to all.
