The range is toward the right, with target stands set up at 25M and 50Y.  The large trees behind the benches have been removed since this image was taken.  The avocados likely reduce wind compared to an open field.

When I’ve shot there usually winds are calm early in the morning, pick up late morning, and are strongest in the afternoon.  More experienced shooters say it’s one of the toughest ranges – not because the wind is high but because of strange things it does.  Like getting flyers in dead calm, or holding for a L>R wind only to have POI hit left of POA.

They say last year’s Nationals were atypically calm for Open Grove, hence the high scores.
