The American Legion of Montana
The American Legion National Headquarters is proud to announce that its Annual 3-Position Junior Air Rifle National Championship will begin with a Postal Match on November 1, 2014!
What is a Postal Match?
“A Postal Match is a match in which competitor’s fire on their home ranges using targets which have been mailed to them by the American Legion National Headquarters. The fired targets are then mailed back to the American Legion National Headquarters for scoring and ranking and awards”.
State and/or regional champions are determined and advance to a qualification round (also a postal match) to determine the athletes who will earn an expense-paid trip to compete in the national championship.
The American Legion’s Junior 3-Position Air Rifle Tournament provides American Legion Affiliated competitors an opportunity to test their marksmanship ability in competition with other junior competitors throughout the nation.
The Individual Tournament has three phases of competition: 1) Preliminary Round - State/Regional Championships; 2) Qualification Round; and 3) National Championships (Colorado Springs, CO).
The Preliminary Round - State/Regional and Qualification Round of the Individual Tournament are postal matches whereas the National Championship of the Individual Tournament is a shoulder-to-shoulder competition.
The Team Tournament has two phases of competition: 1) Preliminary Round - State/Regional Championships and 2) National Championships. The preliminary round team tournament is a “paper” match and will be comprised of the top four athletes’ individual tournament scores. A club with at least four individuals enters one team; at least eight individuals enters two teams; and so on.
The Preliminary Round - State/Regional and National Championship phases of the Team Tournament are postal matches.
Both the Individual and Team Tournaments will be conducted in accordance with the Official Match Program (OMP) and the National Standard Three-Position Air Rifle Rules (current edition).
