A muddy, wet and cold start to Long Range High Power Rifle Championships
Port Clinton, Ohio - Highs in the low 60s and puddles from yesterday's rain create a chilly, muddy atmosphere for the start of the Long Range Rifle Championships. "It's the coldest I've ever seen it here," said one long-time NRA volunteer.
The Remington Band of Brothers Trophy Match was the first match fired and preliminary scores look as though most competitors are enjoying shooting in this cooler weather.

Chills and clouds at NRA Long Range Rifle Championships in Ohio
NRA Communications Manager Lars Dalseide is back at Camp Perry to help cover the Long Range Championships. Unfortunately for Lars, and some competitors, the typical sweltering heat of August is no where to be found.
"I checked out the weather forecast and packed a lot of clothes," said three time Long Range High Power Rifle champ John Whidden. "Now I'm not so sure I packed enough."
We're sure John and Lars will find a way to make it through.
