Wimbledon Cup on NRAblog To the right there you see the Wimbledon Cup. Awarded each year during the Long Range High Power Championships, the Cup was first presented to an American rifle team in 1875 and is one of the NRA's oldest trophies. Now it goes to the top scorer in a 1000-yard slow fire prone event that allows two sighting shots and twenty for record with any sights. Last year it was awarded to Specialist Lance Dement of the United States Army Marksmanship Unit and tonight you can see it during the Trophy Special on Curator's Corner.

Shot on-site at Camp Perry, Ohio, this evening's episode features NRA Competitive Shooting Division Director Mike Krei and NRANews Executive Producer John Popp as they make their way through the hallowed halls of the NRA Trophy Room. See the workmanship and hear the history of these beautiful works of art from the man who oversees the entire competition.

Next week we'll get back to the guns, but that doesn't mean that you should pass up the opportunity to catch a glimpse of these legendary trophies as Mike Krei and John Popp bring you Camp Perry's Curator's Corner on NRANews.com or Sirius XM Patriot channel 144 at 10:20 eastern time.
