With the Nationals Championships for Smallbore Rifle Silhouette cancelled in Canada, USA, and Mexico, the 2020 Lapua Monarch Cup has been postponed until 2021.
“In light of the current global health situation surround COVID-19, the Monarch Cup Board of Directors made the difficult decision to postpone the Lapua Monarch Cup from 2020 to 2021,” stated Monarch Cup Director, Daniel Salazer. “The uncertainty regarding international travel and the concern for the safety of our friends and competitors, led to this very disappointing decision. We vow to make the 2021 Lapua Monarch Cup an event to remember.”
In its inaugural year, the Lapua Monarch Cup was the must-attend event of the silhouette shooting world. Hosted in three different countries: Canada, United States and Mexico and taking place throughout the summer and fall of 2020. Competitors earn points from each match within their respective classification (Master, AAA, AA, & A), giving all shooters an opportunity for the $25,000 in cash prizes.
“Lapua is saddened that this difficult decision had to be made, but we know it’s the right one,” stated Adam Braverman, Director of Sales and Marketing. “The board and Lapua’s top priority is of the health and safety of the international shooting community. However, we are excited to announce that we will continue as the Title Sponsor of the Monarch Cup for 2021.”
