Civilian Marksmanship Program visits Niles



NILES, Ohio (WKBN) — Kids from across the Valley aim for the perfect shot during an annual marksmanship tournament.

Eight teams competed today at this year’s regional Civilian Marksmanship Program tournament at the Western Reserve Fish and Game Association in Niles.

Competitors range in age from 10 to 18-years-old.

They were given three shooting positions and tested on accuracy.

“They’re tyring to hit a hole the size of a pencil eraser at 50 feet,” said Competitor Dominic Tedde.
“It’s a very high precision sport and the competition is a great experience, not only for the sport but for the person itself.

The eight teams will compete again Feb. 15 in Vienna.
