Shooting Sports USA | Lapua Monarch Cup Postpones Competition To 2022
Due to the current travel restrictions between Canada, the USA and Mexico, the Lapua Monarch Cup series has been postponed from 2021 to 2022. These games have a silhouette format, one of the most popular shooting disciplines in North America, and an NRA competition staple.
Here is an excerpt from a recent Lapua press release about the news, including all of the prize money.
“For 2022, the Lapua Monarch Cup will be the must-see event in the silhouette shooting world. The Lapua Monarch Cup is held in three different countries: Canada, USA and Mexico. It will take place in the summer and fall of 2022 points from each game within their respective classification (Master, AAA, AA, and A), giving all shooters the opportunity to win cash prizes of $ 25,000. ”
“Given the ongoing global health challenges with COVID-19, the Monarch Cup Board of Directors made the tough decision to postpone the Lapua Monarch Cup to 2022,” said Daniel Salazer, Director of the Monarch Cup. “Uncertainty about international travel and concerns about the safety of our friends and competitors led to this disappointing decision. We vow to make the Lapua Monarch Cup 2022 an unforgettable event. “
Last year, COVID-19 forced the cancellation of the 2020 National Smallbore Rifle Silhouette Championships in Canada, the United States and Mexico, which in turn resulted in the 2020 Lapua Monarch Cup being postponed. Lapua Sales and Marketing Director Adam Braverman shed light on the decision-making process to postpone the 2021 Lapua Monarch Cup.
“Lapua is sad that this difficult decision had to be made, but we know it is the right one. The board and Lapua’s number one priority is the health and safety of the international shooting community. We are excited to announce that we will continue to be the title sponsor of the Monarch Cup in 2022. “
Silhouette shooters should stay tuned for more updates for next year’s new series.
