Competition Events at RPRC

Our club has a long tradition of holding competitive matches, the result of which is the recognition of participants’ marksmanship skills in each discipline at the Club’s Annual Dinner.  Awards are presented to first, second, and third place in Pistol Marksmanship, Rifle Marksmanship, Shotgun Marksmanship, and Club Championship. (Guests of Members are welcome to participate, however are not eligible for Club Champion awards).

In addition to an engraved pewter tankard the overall Club Champion receives the Taylor Award, consisting of having their name engraved on a perpetual plaque and holding the prestigious Taylor Trophy, a Herreshoff miniature firing cannon, for the ensuing year.  

Members are encouraged to attend as an observer as well as to participate. If you want to improve your marksmanship, consider reviewing the match descriptions below, get out and practice the actual match, and ask for advice from others.  Contact the Club’s Competition Officer, or each discipline’s Chairperson about opportunities to practice. Match descriptions and courses of fire are found below.

Top participants in individual matches will earn prizes and awards, as determined for that match.
