Robinson Team Members Attend Air Rifle Standing Clinic

Several Robinson Rifle team members attended an advanced clinic in Annapolis, MD July 27-29.

The camp was held in the gym at Annapolis High School, and shot on CMP’s portable electronic targets. This is the same Megalink system that is used at the CMP North and South ranges.

This Advanced Standing Air Rifle Camp traveled around the country this summer and was designed to build on the curriculum taught at the CMP weeklong three-position junior air rifle camps. Participants received three days of
intensive training in the standing position

Dan Durben and Sommer Wood were the camp directors and chief instructors. Both joined the program in 2004.

~Durben is an Olympian, and former U.S. Olympic Rifle and Paralympic Shooting Team Coach. Outside of camps, Durben is a physics professor at Black Hills State University, and the school’s NCAA Faculty Athletics Representative.

~Wood is a graduate of Clemson University where she competed on the Clemson Air Rifle Team, and earned her MFA from Barry University. She coaches marksmanship, and organizes shooting events year round for CMP as the Camps and Clinics Coordinator.

~Completing the camp staff were a group of accomplished CMP staff members and college rifle team shooters who served as assistant directors, gunsmiths, and camp counselors.

In addition to this top notch set of instructors, the camp material included contributions from speakers who have Olympic and National Team backgrounds.
