The last two data points represent (mostly) a 200-mile round trip to Camp Perry, and a 200-mile round trip. These are on Interstates, running 60-70 mph depending on speed limits, construction, and traffic flow.

The 2003 National Matches are now on, and run for four weeks. I'm part of the Centennial Exhibit Committee; we've organized an exhibition of firearms, memorabilia, photographs, ephemera and accessories from the inception of the National Matches and the Civilian Marksmanship Program in 1903 until the present day.

The abysmal state of marksmanship among the voluteers & militia that fought in the Spanish-American War prompted Teddy Roosevelt to shepherd the legislation that established the National Matches and created the National Trophy. Soon after the National Board for the Promotion of Rifle Practice was established, and today's Civilian Marksmanship Program is the current incarnation of the Board/

This collaboration of civilian and military marksmen has, for a hundred years, significantly contributed to the defense preparedness of our nation. Marksmanship remains an important military skill, as evidenced by the experiences of our troops in Afghanistan and Iraq.

If you have any interest in history, stop by Camp Perry (just off Ohio Rte 20, just west of Port Clinton & Cedar Point/Sandusky). The Exhibit is open noon-7PM seven days a week until 16 August.

We hope to see you there.

Best regards,

Walt Kuleck
