Match Director's Bulletin

Security at the National Matches at Camp Atterbury

There are a few changes in base security. The Department of Defense updated security procedures to those of an active military base. Everyone arriving on the base will have to be vetted. This process takes less than 5 minutes and is done Monday to Friday. Here is the procedure:

  • Monday thru Thursday, 9:00am to 12:00pm, vetting is done at the Welcome Center, see map. This is the first building on the right, as you come down the hill, just before the main gate. The traffic light is too far.
  • Monday thru Thursday, 12:00pm to 10:00pm, and Friday, 9:00am to 10:00pm, vetting is done at the front gate.
  • If you arrive any other time, request a Visitor Pass at the gate. You will need to return the visitor pass to either the Welcome Center, 9a-12p, or the Main Gate, 12p-10p, and be vetted.

A reminder to competitors staying on base. Lodging is open from 2:00pm to 4:00pm for check-in. If you arrive outside those times, ask for your room key from the Security Guard on the front gate.

The National Match Headquarters is in FOB-2. All match related activities will be conducted in this building. There is a map in the front of the Match Program.

The opening Ceremony is July 8, 2023 at 10:30am on Range 6. There will be distinguished speakers and a cook out. Our sponsor, FOSTEC, will have a display of weapons to test fire.
