It will take Rob a while to get back to you Col due to his computer melting down with incoming subscribers after you revealing about Holly teaching kneelers

Very true Darron, I wonder if this is with or without crutches and if there are certain bendings of the rule to allow the cuff to touch the crutch....:rolleyes:

Hmmm

Read it and all the other issues, good.
You really need to do a 60 second piece on Holly, that would garner some laughs....:grin:

I'd buy that!

Guess I should be true to my word.

To save you money there is nothing on kneelers . the thing i would change is GPs  . i would like to try an experimental GP . whereby you still booked in morning or afternoon BUT it was marshaled and 40 targets . what do you think ??? HOLLY

Wasn't that how we used to do eet in the bad o' days, except that no -swearword- would Marshall and if you did your stint before your squad you'd get left on a lane for four hours while all the finishing shooters scooted home and all the others stood around eating burgers laughing at the guillable sods marshalling?

No thanks, been there got the tee-shirt many times and it just don't fit.

All I can say is that it's a good job we don't have centre folds anymore. That said, the staple might have saved the day :D

No, Colin got the hump because I got up at 3am to get to St Helens to book in early, so I could shoot early and get home at a reasonable time and instead booked in early (7am) with you, was kept in the dark as to what squad I was in until finally at mid-day I found out I was in the last squad starting at 2.30.
The fact that it was ######ing down all day and hit every traffic jam known to man on the way back so I didn't stagger into bed at 2am is purely incidental, it was the ######ing organisers of that shoot thinking it was hilarious to stick all the Southern shooters (KW were in the same boat) in the later squads despite us all signing in first.
Meanwhile their local mates, rolled up mid-morning, signed in last, picked up their gear and went straight onto the course, that was why I had the hump as did a lot of other Southern shooters at the time.

Had a gander at the new edition, worth a read but far too much HFT content including the 60 seconds with Holly (steady on ladies) where they ask when he first got into HFT etc....:grin:
I sent them a quick message pointing out the typo and they are going to correct it as the confusion for the HFT readers must be something wondering who the hell this Holly character is....:grin:

Well apart from a few dodgy ball joints, in fact looking at the whole picture, the air intake's shot, the clutch is non-existent and the exhaust is definitely blowing and as for the ECU, that went gaga years ago....:grin:

He's wearing those rose-tinted glasses again Jon.
I tell you what, get a photo on your phone of this young lady, with you and e-mail it to me and I'll post it in here.
Do that and I'll repay your debt to Neil in bacon and egg rolls...:grin:

Ah c'mon don't be bashful, I'm sure it's not the first time you've embarrassed a lay-Dee....:grin:

Anyways, forget all that, I love the kneeling shot at GP1 where the shooter is using a now banned bean bag...:rolleyes:
I guess Neil was policing the other kneeling lane....:grin:

Was he shooting, or rangefinding? 

I heard one shooter being picked up on trying to use a bag.
