ROBINSON MANEUVER TRAINING CENTER, Ark. – Several states have already submitted their letters of intent (LOI), as of Jan. 27, 2017, to take advantage of their opportunity to train during the Winston P. Wilson National Championships at the National Guard Marksmanship Training Center in April 2017, and the goal is all 50 states and territories participation.
Many may think that competition is only about “play to win,” however that is not the case when it comes to marksmanship in the National Guard. We “train to win.” Every competition is an opportunity to train. Marksmen always learn from other participants and improve their skills. Then they share that knowledge in their home state with other service members.
The NGMTC will be tracking confirmations to attend on this map. Get fired up and help NGMTC achieve the goal of all 50 states and territories participating in 2017. Contact your state marksmanship training coordinator (SMC) or marksmanship regional coordinator (MAC) to get involved.
