Well Holly it looks like you owe me yet another brew as i beat you soundly with a 37 thefinger2.gif
Fantastic course with a dastardly wind made for an entertaining day. A big thank you to the course setters from all the Tawd crew. I even managed to get a 2nd place trophy in "B" grade today my first National trophy so it was even more special for me. Thanks to Ozzy and Tim my shooting partners for putting up with my excuses

I had a bit of a two and eight with mr calpin at the regionals , trying to explain to him that it really did not matter how many times a course has been shot before a big comp . cos on a good course , it would be just as hard each time you shot it . we have what i call some classic shots . to get em requires skill and a bit of luck with the wind , which is not easy at our club . andy would have none of it saying that a GP course had to be virgin positions and range . now at our club in a small strip wood , that is impossible . but in the end it is rare for it to be cleared . cause you could be one of those who do simon . and pigs will fly , honk honk wow.gif ???

Have to agree with you on that Hols. We will have some shots i have done hundreads of times, ok they will be slightly shorter come the gp but its the same lane bar a few yards. I was testing the Priest on them yesterday having just re-done settings.my practise routine is to hit a target 3 times in a row beofre moving onto the next one.
some of the -swearword-s i had to give up on yesterday in the wind.

A good course will always test even if you think you know it and hopefully Tondu will be a good course for all.

Holly can u ask mr clarke if i can borrow that 90ft lader of his smile.gif

As long as i have been at the club,ive only seen 2 clears and that was Craig both times/and the targets was not in same place both times.

There will be 20 gp targets out and 20 club targets out,so there is a chance for someone to have a go at clearing(thats if its not windy)

SORRY HOLLY WILL NOT BE YOU thefinger2.gif

I take it club targets must be the old 50mm ones, as such more suited for Holly?
