  1. The regionals is galloping up , back in the day when i was Comp sec . i was given around £750 for prizes and team kit . now old john walker stopped that . saying that it was needed for the region to buy some land or some such . which of course will never happen . now john has gone . so why not put it to the next meeting that the winter league money once again is used for what it meant for . prizes and kit . ??? HOLLY PS or at the very least a hat and petrol money . have a look at the kit that is still going around that was given out to team members . hats . the black and whits jackets . shirts . fleeces . and so on . i am sitting in one of the blue hooded light summer fleeces as i write . all with the SEFTA emblem on .
  2. Well it is up and running chaps and chappesses . under www.carisbrookerpc.com . please come along and peruse the site . some pics , new ones to come . might not be up to nat's standards as a club lad did it . but i am sure it will get better as people use it . ??? HOLLY PS probably best not to look at the gallery . as the club members barring myself look like they have escaped from the scrubs .
  3. In walnut grade 2. not laminate it is £1278 incuding VAT . start saving ??? HOLLY
  4. Got the Steyr out last night to have one more go at fitting the smaller wheel on the March ( which came off twice in Comps ) . after much fiddling , it was clear it would never stay on as is . sending it off to grandad for some work to get it to fit . as i like a small side wheel . smaller the wheel , smaller the error . anyway i thought as i have it out . i will adjust the back lens , so the cross hairs are clearer . took off the rubber eye piece and looked through it to adjust . now i had not touched it and the cross hairs were now clear and black . moreover the image which i have always thought was dark . was a lot lighter . i had not done anything except take the rubber eye piece off . the eye piece was level and not cutting off any of the vision . so why should it make the image brighter and the cross hairs focused . ohwer mother ??? HOLLY PS Look's like i am gonna join the hoodie boys .

    The Shutz Barrel

    Right after talking with Jon about this . i decided to make a test with the new shutz . the problem being that the old shutz had decided it did not like 8.4s . would only shoot 7.9s expresses . filled the junior cylinder on the new shutz to 200 bar . checked power 777FPS and i got 70 shots at that speed . benched at 52 yards i got all 70 shots into an inch and a half ( would have been better but i lost concentration at the end ) conclusion . no flyers , minimum wind drift . ( between 5 and 8 miles an hour . all shots aimed at a dot ) inside left of kill would have took down all 70 targets if seperate . next up the old barrel , when i have time . ??? HOLLY

    Now there is a Funny Thing ?

    Same difference to the march . only thing it does not like is low winter sun . it will white out . the lupe on the other hand does not like changes in light or heat/cold .??? HOLLY
  12. Ian £ 750 ish was the income from the winter league only . so it was spent on prizes and clothing . the only other income was from GPs if any were held and that went to the club who held it . as said . watches , chronos , radios were provided by the clubs . i think the only other expenses was paying the area sum to the BFTA for the regional team on the sunday . the saturday was a freeby .HOLLY

    New Scope

    You never get bored with a good scope . you lust after one maybe that is out of reach . today i was shooting one of the lads rifles with a Mk111 nikko on top . on going back to the march it was like chalk and cheese . despite me thinking that mine is darkish . . i mostly use mine to shoot on 20 . now that is superb . would be nice to have a illum ret though . like i say . looking through grandads will be expensive . you will get a pain in the wallet ???

    SEFTA WL Round 6 - 13th January....

    Hush dear boy the walls have ears . ??? HOLLY
  16. The prizes were Roughly £ 350 . the rest of the average £750 was made up of team clothing . i used to ask what we had from lord briscoe and spend it . all bills provided . there was no chrono unless the clubs ( springfield and Kent woodsmen ) Ian for instance supplied it . any radios were either owned by the clubs or individuals . also clubs mostly supplied the stop watches . or supposedly the club marshals watched the timing . it is not curridge park any more ian . so why not give the people going some encouragement ??? HOLLY
  17. It is your region , if that is what you want ? nothing . then fine ??? HOLLY
