SEFTA WL round 3 Springfield....

Recommended Posts

Round three will find the intrepid lads and lasses of SETFA trudging down the field to the autumnal hell that is Springfield.

 

Questions have to be asked:

Will Wardy’s spectacular return to top-flight FT continue?

Will Stan get out of bed?

Will the Shead Duo keep their stellar shooting form?

 

All this and more Sunday week so book your places at the only FT show worth turning up to...😉

Maybe at Carrisbroke, but at Springfield it only top flight stuff mate, incisive one hit kills and everything.

Big Paul reckons he has a plan to stop the Eley Express in his tracks, we shall see....:grin:

My Grandad said pretty much the same except when he was telling me about the three day party after Paris was liberated.

That sounded like all the parties that there has ever been altogether, and then some...:grin:

Weather update for Sunday: windy and cold, ah so that will be a Springfield WL fixture then.

currently showing a low of 6 degrees which is the switching point for most guns/scopes....😉

Ah, positively balmy then - missed the Iceni round due to returning from Norway (bobbing about on the North Sea (swell was dropping from 6 metre waves) whilst you were shooting it) - the wind at the North Cape would've blown the pellets back down the barrel (almost blew the bus off the road at a couple of places - mind you it is about 300 metres above sea level) temps were down to -9 C during the day

Sounds like a great reason to give that place a miss until at least midsummer...👍

That's the next trip - to try and see the midnight sun - the Northern Lights played 'hard to see', always showing up just as I'd got nice and warm in bed. Great trip though, planning on going again in a few years time when the sun spot activity is higher though.

If it’s the northern lights you’re after isn’t Iceland a pretty good bet?

Iceland is stunning, if you go further than the touristy bits!  We went to the westfjords (Súðavík) a few years ago with our Icelandic friends and some of those roads were truly terrifying (if you're scared of heights and sheer drops).  However the scenery more than made up for it! Plus it was June and we had 24 hours of daylight.
