In 1998, when there were only 7 competitors, not even enough non-Distinguished to hold the "Leg" match, State Association (ANJRPC) Pistol Chairman, John Gemmill, and then new shooter, Dave Lange, decided to "make things different". Both worked tirelessly throughout the year arranging incentives, soliciting private donations for prizes and encouraging new shooters.
In 1999, Dave actually made brass catchers offered as a sign up bonus to the first 50 competitors!
Sign up incentives ($40 gift certificates to local sporting good stores) continued through 2002, when both days of the event had virtually full firing lines!
By 2003, when the lines were "sold out" with advance reservations practically before the match bulletins were mailed, a third relay was added, and the range's turning target line was extended to accommodate 40 instead of 35!
In 2004, all three days saw filled firing lines (with one-gun shooters "taking shifts!") - The "Madore Cup" was commissioned, and the "Leg" match hereinafter was held in honor of late PA gunsmith, George Madore (who earned his Distinguished Pistol Shot badge with 3 Camp Perry performances.)
In 2005, a fourth day was added on the following weekend!
In 2006 Outdoor Championship was held at South River Pistol Club in South River, NJ for the last time!
In 2007 we held 3 relays at Central Jersey Rifle and Pistol Club in Jackson, and a 4th relay at CRRC in West Windsor! Dave Lange won his 10th consecutive resident state championship!
In 2008 all four relays were held at CJRPC! Dr. Nick Abrishamian donated a commemorative custom 1911 to be presented to the overall winner!
In 2009 CJRPC hosted four relays on consecutive weekends. In addition to Springfield XDs again going to the top shooter in each class, Vinny Pugliese donated a Ruger Mark III as prize for the Top Junior and Mike Westock donated a $250 "Free Pass to Perry" which was awarded by a drawing to one of our twelve junior competitors!
In 2010 five relays were held - 3 at CJRPC in Jackson and 2 at a newly refurbished Cherry Ridge Range in Highland Lakes! In addition to Top Junior prize Browning Buckmark, Mike Westock's Brass Fund donated cash awards to 2nd, 3rd and 4th place juniors as well as sponsoring 3 random drawing awards for juniors! CJRPC disallowed these awards thereafter...
NJ Outdoor Championship was held at THREE LOCATIONS for the first time
