Correct on both counts. The forecast wind didn't really happen but even so it was still tricky for wind. What surprised me wasn't the scores coming up in the lower grades but some of the low scores in the upper grades.

What it showed is that a course doesn't need to be constant 55 yarders to be a challenge and enjoyable.  Some courses I've shot over summer, I've actually got bored halfway because each lane being predictable.  I prefer courses that mix it up a bit and cater for everyone.  Even Mr Ayres (who previously cleared a GP course) didn't clear it.

 

 

I'll still take the PB though 😄

What they seem to have forgotten Nat's at GP level , is that it is a series . so if they clear the course , so what . it just makes for a better shoot off at the last comp . really it is the same within reason at Club Opens . nothing wrong with a good shoot off at the end in front of the club house . i think a lot of shooters have more problems with light wind . than if it was really blowing .

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.
