Port Clinton, Ohio - For the first time in history, Camp Perry's High Power Championships and Mid-Range Championships are delayed due to wind.

Notorious for it's occasional brutal conditions, the National Matches experienced blasts so strong this morning that targets were strewn across the range. Start time for the Appreciation Cup, the day's first match, has been pushed back to noon ... if the winds subside. Should shooting resume before the wind fully dies down, expect some interesting scores as competitors are forced to wrestle with the wind.
