01 April – Upcoming MCDSA Reunion

Our upcoming Reunion on 01 April should be a humdinger — we currently have over 120 who are planning to attend!

IT IS NOT TOO LATE TO ADD YOUR NAME TO THE LIST – RSVP NOW!

(RSVP MCDSA President Danny Burke at:  b12daniel@aol.com )

***Get in on an opportunity to reconnect with folks while enjoying great chow and a PRESENTATION BY MSGT. CAPKO (SNCO OF TEAMS) WHICH WILL FILL IN THE OLD-TIMERS ON HOW THE MARINE CORPS’ REGIONAL AND CHAMPIONSHIP MATCHES ARE BEING RUN TODAY! (MSGT. CAPKO’S PRESENTATION IS TO INCLUDE BOTH A POWER POINT AND A VIDEO.)***

Also, whereas participants in the Marine Corps Championship Matches will be in training all day (and night) on Saturday, the 1st of April, and they therefore will not be able to check out our Association’s Reunion, the MCDSA will be hosting a cookout for the 80 or so competitors on Sunday, 2nd of April, at noon on Range 2, under the 600-yard line pavilions.

If you can see a way to be part of the MCDSA membership who will be hosting the cookout for Active-duty Marines on Sunday, it would probably prove to be a stellar opportunity to connect with the current generation of Marines who are both pursuing Marksmanship Excellence and currently serving our Country!

FY 2023 CIAP – Marine Corps Championships

This year the Marine Corps Championships are scheduled to run from 28 March to 07 April, with the Awards Ceremony currently slated to take place on 04 April 2023.

Registration is NLT 27 March, with live-fire training days beginning on 28 March 2023.

Hosting Commander:  CG, Training Command, Quantico

Hosting Unit:  WTBn, MCB Quantico

Each year the Marine Corps Championship Matches are the culmination of the training opportunities and competitions held strictly within the ranks of the Marine Corps itself as part of the Marine Corps’ Competition-In-Arms Program (CIAP).

All of the training and competitions are coordinated and facilitated by the Marine Corps Shooting Team. 

Some Marine Corps Championship competitors will go on to represent the Marine Corps at Interservice and National competitions, while ALL Marines who have participated in the Competition-In-Arms Program will go on to take their knowledge and newly-acquired skills back to their home units with the ability to disseminate and share the skills honed during the training and live-fire sessions provided to all participating Marines at each of the five Regional Marine Corps Marksmanship Competitions (MCMC) held each year during the months leading up to the Marine Corps Championships.

Semper Fidelis!
