Managed to get some stability out of the reg today, over the chrono. I must be seeing temp related fluctuations, as it was bitterly chilly last weekend when power was all over the place.

Spent a hour or two getting the strong wind under control, wow.gif wow.gif (and then had a go at the course). Every shot needed to be out of kill and most off the plate.

So ready for ETL in the morning, with a game plan in mind. Check the windage setting on the plink, wrap up warm, and be brave on every target. Then wish I'd gone to the pub instead sad.gif

Yeah I agree.

I thought I was on for a good one today, had such a good start an all.

It was a very tricky day though. I can honestly say that every one that I missed was a proper miss due to tricky conditions, none were silly mistakes.

So a hard earned 33 I think.

Thanks to Simon and the ETL crew. Interesting and challenging course for round Six. And then there was the wind. sad.gif

Excuses.....Where do you start? One lane blew it all, but a massive thumbs up to the good woman who nailed them both, where as I double dinked.

Long way to go yet. As to round Seven at Hamstreet. BRING IT ON smile.gif smile.gif

Thanks to all those involved.As usual a very good course,just a shame i didn't hit more of them (8l00dy wind).See you all at round 7 at Kent Woodsmen where Mr Croucher can show us how it's really done on home ground. ohmy.gif

Cleared the hard bit out the back near the pylon....double dinked a kneeler......and missed a 20 yd stander......... so a mixed day

Is this similar to the new SEFTA kit on order for the Regionals?......... think the Yellow is quite striking and will strike fear into our opponents
