Ottawa County

Business invited to take part in discount program for shooters


PORT CLINTON – More than 4,000 competitors and their families are expected to travel to Ottawa County to compete in the 2018 CMP National Trophy Rifle and Pistol Matches, Smallbore Rifle Matches, CMP Games Events and Long Range Matches held at Camp Perry. These competitors and their families from around the U.S. support many of the businesses in the area and are a substantial source of revenue for our economy.

To help assure their continued support of these businesses, the Ottawa County Chambers of Commerce and the Civilian Marksmanship Program would like to encourage businesses to participate in the Competitor Discount Program. CMP Competitors will be issued a 2018 National Match souvenir button to identify them and will be encouraged to visit businesses that display a Competitor Appreciation Certificate in their establishment. Your business may extend a discount or other special offer to competitors wearing this souvenir button. If you choose to participate, your name and a short summary of your business will be featured on an information sheet included in each competitor “Welcome Packet” upon their arrival at Camp Perry. If you wish to participate in the Competitor Discount Program, sign up must be completed by Wednesday, June 20.

We would also like to offer an opportunity to drop off your menus, flyers or coupons to be included in each Competitor Welcome Packet. We will put together 4,000 Competitor Welcome Packets this year. All materials should be delivered to the CMP, Camp Perry Training Site, Building 3 (CMP Headquarters), open from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday, no later than Wednesday, June 20.

If you have any questions and to get a signup form, contact the CMP at 419-635-2141, ext. 724, or email
