ROBINSON MANEUVER TRAINING CENTER, Arkansas- Found some change in the seat cushions and the MACs are back: super-sized. We’re not talking “Golden Arches Value Menu Big Mac,” but rather the National Guard Marksmanship Advisory Counsel (MAC) regional marksmanship competitions for 2017.
Stretching the dollars, the NGMTC has combined the MAC regional competitions into three conference matches at three different locations, allowing for every state in each region to send two (four man teams).
- 14-17 August 2017 – Camp Guernsey, WY (MAC VI and MAC VII)
- 17-20 August 2017 – Tullahoma, TN (MAC III and MAC V)
- 24-27 August 2017 – Fort Indiantown Gap, PA (MAC I and MAC II)
Official Match Programs (OMP) will soon follow.
Start submitting requests for orders (RFOs) to the NGMTC Mailbox. There is very little reaction time, so please submit the RFOs as soon as possible. Do not CC your RFOs to anyone at the NGMTC. Send them directly to the mailbox to eliminate confusion on our end.
ANG funding is not available. I suggest working with your wing commanders to support the ANG shooters. If any funds come available we will announce it. If a wing does fund shooters, please provide the NGMTC with an RFO noting that the wing is funding them, so we can track who is attending. This will eliminate confusion.
Please forward any questions to your appointed MAC reps.
