I have not done a GP for years but hear how long they are now but I think the Essex 50 course was very good with some thing for every one to have a go at hitting and not set up for just for maybe the top 5 % of FT shooters. . New firing line work well and was last maybe used 20 years ago. Nodought it could have been made a lot longer but from what I could tell EVERY one was enjoying it while it was going and shame I could not stay at the end but I now know it was a good job I got home when I did.
Let’s face it if people can not even do a club comp with out it being to GP level what is there of them to shot. One of the reasons why I asked the question was the SEFTA winter league comps getting way to long a while ago as I kept hearing this near GP courses in the winter and it was not aimed at anyone or club and we seems to have forgotten about new shooters trying to find there feet in FT.
I do not think the 50 could have run or be run any better with a good entry , good lanes some on the new ? Firing line and I think one one stoppage right end when a stand broke I think and then good food layed on at the end with every one having a good day out in the sun shine . Keith.
