FEATURE // 2011 CAMP PERRY NATIONAL RIFLE CHAMPIONSHIPS
McPhail shot a 400-35X in the first metallic sight Dewar Match. Veteran long range prone shooter Nancy Tompkins and former national position champion George Norton were hot on his heels with a pair of 400-34Xs. McPhail’s 400-34X score at 100 yards made a strong statement about his desire to win his first prone title. He had to wrestle the match away from 2009 Roberts Team member Mark DelCotto on a tie breaking rule. In third was Bart Parnall of Columbia, SC, with a 400-33X. The day ended on the 50-meter line with DelCotto posting a 400-37X for the win. Rawlings and Abalo rounded out the top three with 35X and 34X cleans. McPhail posted a clean at 50 meters giving him the first day’s aggregate with a perfect 1200-103X. International Distinguished Badge holder Reya Kempley and Olympic medalist Mike Anti also shot 1200s and were second and third with 88Xs and 81Xs respectively. The second half of the metallic sight championship opened with British shooter Keith Ridgeway, expert Catherine Kauffelt and Abalo knotted at 400-35X in the Dewar, finishing in that order. McPhail and DelCotto also posted cleans. Air Force LTC Doug Clark topped the field in the 100-yard match with a 400-32X with Anti and Kempley coming in second and third with 440-31Xs each. McPhail and DelCotto were still clean. Clark posted his second win of the day with a 400-34X at 50 meters. Hein was back in the top three with a 400-33X while DelCotto dropped a point. Clark won the second daily aggregate with a 1200-99X—just 5Xs ahead of the second place Kempley. In third was Hein with an 1199-94X. Lurking just out of the money was DelCotto who had an 1199-93X. Kempley took the metallic sight and woman honors with a score of 2400-182X. DelCotto was second with a 2398-197X, a mere 5 Xs ahead of Hein. The stage was set for an interesting last two days of

competition. Dave Cramer, who has had a long and storied competitive career, was high senior. Stephen Angeli, a fellow Keystone state rifleman of Cramer’s, took the high intermediate senior title. Noted shooting historian Paul Nordquist shot a 2398-186X to earn any sight only honors. The Dewar and Randle Teams are selected from the metallic sight aggregate. Representing the United States in the Dewar Match were Reya Kempley, DelCotto, McPhail, Hein, Abalo, Army SSG Hank Gray, George Norton, Justin Tracy, Sarah Beard, Rawlings, Clark, Bill Neff, Tarl Kempley, Tompkins, Peter Church, Cramer, Army MAJ Rhonda Bright, Shawn Wells, Shane Barnhart, Joe Farmer and alternates Kevin Nevius, George Pantazelos and Parnall under the direction of team captain Anti and coach Ron Wigger. Randle team captain Lenore Lemanski and coach Roberta Gubbins supervised Reya Kempley, Sarah Beard, Tompkins, Bright, Amada McMullin, Katie Bridges, Bohren, Amada Luoma, Amy Bock, Kauffelt and alternates Morrissey and Michelle Bauer. The Army took both of the team matches with, oddly enough, identical scores of 1597-108Xs and two different line ups Any sights began with Kempley in the lead and DelCotto and McPhail two points behind. She was in front, but with scopes now on the rifles, she could not afford to make a single mistake. In the first any sight Dewar, Nevius and Kempley tied for first place with a 400-36X. Unfortunately for Reya the other “Kempley” was her brother, Tarl, who was relegated to second by the rule book. Claudia Duksa was third with a 400-35X. Reya gave up two points while DelCotto and McPhail stayed clean. She was now tied in points but behind in Xs. Tarl Kempley found himself tied for first again in the 100-yard match. This time he fared no better, finishing behind Tompkins after both posting 400-24Xs. Charlie Kemp was third with a 400-32X. Reya

Kempley and DelCotto both lost two points as McPhail dropped one. The Meter Match revealed just how important experience is in shooting success. Cramer and Wigger each had 400-37Xs with Cramer getting the win. In third place was Farmer with a 400-36X. The average age of these top three riflemen is 74. Day three closed out with Tarl Kempley in the lead, a 1200-104X, 5Xs ahead of Nevius who was just a single X in front of Tompkins. High heat and humidity marked the final day. However, conditions allowed 101 competitors (almost 30 percent of those registered) to shoot 400s in the Dewar. Tompkins dropped just 2Xs to win the match while Ginger McLemore of Arizona and Hein were second and third, the best of the seven 400-37X scores recorded. Conditions picked up during the 100-yard match and the number of 400s dropped off significantly. McPhail was match winner with a 400-38X as Rawlings took second with 36Xs. Garald Wise of Wooster, OH, was third with 35Xs. Abalo won the Meter Match with a 400-37X while Parker and Beard’s identical scores of 400-34X meant that the statistical people consulted the rule book to decide second in favor of Parker. Tompkins’ perfect two-day score of 2400-200X won both the any sight and women’s championship. Parker was second and high intermediate senior with a 2399-194X while Justin Tracy was third with a 2399-191X. High senior went to Nordquist who shot his second 2398 of the tournament, this time with 185X. McPhail started the match with a win and ended it with the aggregate victory. He and DelCotto battled all week and ended with identical scores of 4796, but McPhail had 401Xs to Delcotto’s 380Xs. Abalo was third on the back of his 4795-388X. Nordquist matched his first two-day score of 2398-188X with almost an identical 2398-185X and was named the any sight only champion.
