Best regards, Shinny.

Cheers Bob,

We are still in the early days of establishing a club/team & hope to encourage others in our area to do the same...so we will at some stage provide a web page of some kind to advertise these aims...

Our membership is growing every meet & the emphisis is on fun using older spring .177 airguns..we have five targets "on the go" most of the night then finish off with a shoot off to add some spice..we are constantly reminded of idiots/thugs giving airgun shooting a bad press...it's just a shame that the same press never seem to want to report the 99.9% of us user's that get pleasure from out given sport.. dunno.gif ..anyway furious.gif over..."watch this space" as they say..!ATB,Mad mike.

Had to give it a miss tonight, a combination of various reasons. Hope to be there next week, especially if the price has gone down on the air rifles.

Nice to see you all again...glad you could all make it....We are an.."ecclectic bunch" of so & so's but seem to gell very well..!The "raffle prize" donated by Shinny (thank you) went to one of the lads in the main bar who is in the club's tug of war team...they are pretty good by all accounts...looking forwards to seeing you all again next week & by the shoot off score's...we need to keep practicing to take on those league boys who have challenged us...maybe we should throw a tug of war pull into the nights festivities as well.... abiggrin.gif

For this week, a nice young man is going to come and give a chat on the history of the BSA Airsporter

This should take about 1/2 hour and if it goes well then we have got a few more topics lined up that should be interesting to most members (hopefully)

If any member has a Stutzen or Centenary model, then please bring it along so that the best of the range is all there to look at

See you tomorrow

Can't make it tonight I'm afraid. I'm at a club dinner, and it's being held at one of those all you can eat buffet restaurants. I have a reputation to uphold.

The "shoot off" scores are steadily increasing week by week..those (proffesional) boys from the Hinkley league won't know what hit them... sniper.gif cheers to Shinny (John) too for putting up the raffle prize again..see you soon,Mad mike.

The guys who have challenged us are from a field target club where they shoot out to 75 yards... wow.gif ..I think they can get a team together within the next couple of weeks..so we need to hone our skills..if Shinny covers us from the high ground & "Santa" & young Reaper can get within strikeing distance..we have as good a chance as them.. thumb.gif anyone good at garroting... dunno.gif
