The 25th Annual Confederate National matches got underway Friday April 7, 2017, at River Bend Gun Club. This year's conditions featured cool temperatures and very challenging wind conditions, with gusty winds following Thursday's cold front gusting to 20-30 miles an hour, making standing very difficult, rapids a gamble, and 600 yard prone tough. Attendance this year featured 54 competitors from several states, along with the USAMU team from Ft. Benning. Morning temps were in the high 30's (your erstwhile reporter opted for thermal underwear all 3 days), with afternoons quickly warming to very comfortable temperatures, under bluebird skies.
