    Weston Woods. The big ground, not the usual club ground we used in the winter league :)

    You can also use http://maps.google.com/maps?daddr=51.856656,-1.215878

    It is hard to find a postcode for a gate :) The Open-FT link is re-enabled pro-tem but the details there are for last year (2014). The 2015 Open date has been set but is not yet confirmed.
    The old URL is not indexed, etc

    Cheers

    Dunno mate...

    Weston woods is entered by a long track, and the main parking is about 1/4 mile in (a guess) and there is a couple of lodge type buildings next it, and that and the plinking range is on the right. It's novel features are shotgun stands and a tower for launching clays.

    Keston is a much smaller ground, entered down a road which you park along, plinking range on left, range on right, 200yds into a field. The line is straight and at the far end there's an airfield. It's a smaller affair.

    Which sounds familiar?

    Hi Bri,

    Nah - I don't think we started using Weston Woods for major comps until 08/09.

    The home ground Kennel Copse is titchy by comparison, but was indeed used to host UKAHFT event(s) back around 06/07 time.

    Cheers Timmy

    Rob's description of Keston sounds more like what I remember.
    Plinking across a small lane, main shoot just inside the edge of a woods with a straight firing line.

    Haha, not that I remember how to get there, either way I'll get the sat nav to direct me so it doesn't really matter where it is really. I like shooting at new grounds though, always makes it more interesting.

    Remember, booking in opens Saturday for all those going to the Classic...

    Weston is interesting Brian. Big ground. It's got a big tower as well... but no downhill bits.

    Booking is open on the BFTA Website peeps...

    I don't suppose too many will notice until after the NEFTA Classic though.
