Match & Cash/Prize Awards Information

Dear Silhouette Shooters,

We hope this message finds you well and in good spirits. It is with a mix of feelings that we write to inform you about a necessary change regarding the Mexican stage of the Lapua Monarch Cup. Originally planned for October 5-6, we have rescheduled the event to October 26-27.

This decision was not made lightly, and it comes from a place of deep respect for your time and dedication. Due to requirements from Mexican law enforcement agencies, the host range for the Lapua Monarch Cup must accommodate a championship match for their shooting teams which conflicts with our established dates. We understand that adjustments like these can disrupt plans, and for that, we sincerely apologize. We have taken great care to align the new dates with other silhouette matches in October to minimize any inconvenience for you.

Your support and understanding mean the world to us, and we are genuinely grateful for your flexibility during this transition. Your enthusiasm and passion for the sport inspire us every day, and we are committed to making the rescheduled event a memorable and rewarding experience for all.

Thank you once again for being a part of the Lapua Monarch Cup community. We look forward to seeing you on October 26-27 and celebrating our shared passion for shooting sports together.

Warmest regards,

The Lapua Monarch Cup Board of Directors
