    The 2017 TN Long Range State Championship is in the books. Though I didn't record the scores it was a brutal weekend for most. Congratulations to Thomas Colyer, the 2017 TN State Long Range Champion. Also great shooting by Bill Vaughn, Brian Newkirk and Jack Little (Palma). These guys can hold hard for sure.

    Great shooting guys.

    The wind wasn't that high, it was just that weird. After one of the matches, Danny Biggs mentioned that it was "unreadable." That should tell you something about how it was out there.

    Congrats Thomas on your 1st Tn. St. Long Range Title, you certainly had some hard holders there to shoot against.

    The times that I remember it being a complete mystery it was quartering from the left.
