Marty Brown Memorial Invitational Overview
The Marty Brown Memorial Invitational™ rifle match honors Marty Brown, an instructor with Revere’s Riders who lost a 40-month battle with ovarian cancer in 2017. A portion of match proceeds will be donated to Ovar’coming Together to assist in their programs to support women diagnosed with ovarian cancer as well as funding ovarian cancer research. You can read more about Marty as well as Ovar’coming Together on the Marty Brown Memorial™ page of our website.
The Marty Brown Memorial Invitational™ rifle match is an informal 3-position known distance match shot according to the Revere’s Riders Rifle Qualification Test. This is an invitational match and you must be invited to attend. Marksmen will receive an invitation by satisfying one of the following:
- shoot a score of Marksman or better on the Revere’s Riders Rifle Qualification Test (must be in the same calendar year as the Invitational)
- satisfy the Match Director that you are proficient and safe enough to participate
If you believe you meet either of the above criteria and would like to participate, please contact the Event Director using the email address below.
No formal instruction will be provided at this event; however, many participants will be highly skilled rifle marksmen who are usually willing to help in any way they can provided doing so doesn’t detract from their own enjoyment or participation in the event. In general, if you can “shoot a score” in the 25-yard Revere’s Riders Rifle Qualification Test you have the necessary marksmanship skills to participate in this event.

Additional Event Information
Ticket price includes all range fees.
Pre-registration is Required
All participants must purchase tickets by the DEADLINE of 5:00 PM on October 30, 2020. Absolutely no registrations will be allowed after this deadline. The unique venue for this event requires that we share your name and other personal information you submit to Camp Atterbury Joint Maneuver Training Center (CAJMTC), Military Police and the Range Control office. Your information will not be used in any manner other than to allow your admittance to the installation and to contact you regarding this event. Pre-registration is required so that we can forward your information to CAJMTC in time for the event. You are also responsible for reading the below additional range information specific to Camp Atterbury. Please keep in mind that we are using a military facility and military rules and discipline are in force.
Event will be held RAIN or SHINE!
Camp Atterbury is an active military installation, as such we may have our scheduled access removed as late as the day before the event. Refunds will only be issued for this event due to cancellation of the event by military authorities. Absolutely no refunds will be given for any other reason.
Additional Range Information
You MUST Arrive On Time
Plan to arrive NO LATER than 7:45AM. Anyone arriving later than this will not be allowed to participate in the event and your event fees will not be refunded. This is due to the need to meet at Range Control and proceed to the range as a group. We will not wait for you; plan to be early.
Base Firearms Policy
CAJMTC firearms policy—NO LOADED FIREARMS PERMITTED ON BASE. Concealed carry is NOT ALLOWED on base; you may only load a firearm while on a designated range. Before you proceed to to the base entrance and attempt to pass through security, make sure that all firearms in your vehicle and on your person (don’t forget your concealed carry sidearm) are unloaded, in a secure case and separated from your ammunition. This is generally Indiana state law (see IC 35-47-2-1). If you are refused entry to the base for any reason, your event fees will not be refunded.
Directions to Range Control
You will be required to pass through the Camp Atterbury main gate to access the military side of the base. When asked, tell gate security that you are there for the Revere’s Riders event along with any other information gate security requests. IMPORTANT—do NOT attempt to go to the range on your own. There are numerous ranges at Camp Atterbury and any number of them can be “hot” at any given time. There are ranges for pistols, rifles, artillery as well as strafing (witnessing an A-10 Warthog engaging in a strafing run is awe inspiring from a distance); some of the ranges involve firing over roadways (if the range is “hot”, these should be blockaded, but better safe than sorry). Wandering onto any of these ranges while they are “hot” could lead to a VERY bad day. Range Control is reached by continuing south on the entrance road (Eggleston Street). Range Control will be on your left just before County Road 900 South. Himsel Airfield will be on your right just beyond the intersection of Eggleston Street and CR 900 S.
Civilian lodging is available on base for those who wish to stay overnight. Standard rooms with shared bathroom are $38/night and Deluxe rooms with private bath are $53/night. For reservations, call the Camp Atterbury Lodging Office at 812-526-1128. Let them know that you are with Revere’s Riders.
3M Peltor has graciously provided Revere’s Riders with Peltor LiteCom Plus communications headsets for use at this event. These headsets incorporate radios allowing wearers to communicate with each other via their headsets. Extremely convenient for ranges where the target line is manned like Camp Atterbury.
Central Indiana High Power Rifle Shooters (CIHRPS) will be assisting Revere’s Riders in running the Marty Brown Memorial Invitational rifle match. CIHPRS holds several rifle matches each month at Camp Atterbury including NRA Highpower, F-class, etc. If you have an interest in long-range rifle competition (out to 1,200 yards), then CIHPRS is your club.
