You are probably referring to the CMP Western Games. This series of matches occurs in early November at Pendleton. There may be other CMP-type events there but I do not think the CMP sales people attend those.

Of course, November is not all that far off and it would be a blast to attend the matches.

I went to the CMP Western games last year. It was my first match other than reduced course (ie. first one with target pits). It was very friendly, with lots of help for newbs. The CMP had lots of nice rifles on display, cherry-picked from their stock. It's a great event. I encourage everyone to give it a try.

Here an article about last Nov. games:

The next one is set of Nov 4-12, 2006

CMP will also be at the Big Reno Show in August in conjunction with the Garand Collectors Association Convention. They will have rifles for sales selection.
