In 1989, with the demise of the Scarborough team, Cumberland found itself the last remaining club in the Southern Maine Rifle League and so was welcomed into the Alden Gayton Rifle League in 1990.
The Gayton League was sponsored by the American Legion and named in honor of Alden Gayton the first soldier from the Lewiston/Auburn area killed in WW I.
Once upon a time a thriving sport, there were clubs in Greene (started in an old horse stable behind the Grange Hall), Lewiston (in the basement of Lewiston Armory), Circle Canadians (in the attic of a upstairs bar on Lisbon street), Auburn, Alden Gayton (range in basement of the Legion hall), Fairfield/Madison, Oakland, Bath, Hyde Windlass (in one of the shipyard buildings), Brunswick (in the basement of the Rec Hall in downtown Brunswick), Poland, TriCity (Augusta,Gardiner/Hallowell) and Rumford (range was in a part of the paper mill with a two tier narrow range set up.)
Today only four teams remain in the Alden Gayton league shooting competitively each season.
The four teams are, Cumberland, Bath, Poland and Auburn.
