    Just a reminder, no dogs (4 legged) are to be brought to Gp6 on land owners request.

    This gp will be won with a 42-45 in the wind

    Shot the Course today, well 41 of the 50.

    Nice mix of ranges, angles, magic roundabout angles and in the "average" Oaktree wind, it was a fair but tough test.
    This gp wont be won on the standers and kneelers, least if the wind is up.
    Standers are 1 long, 1 medium, 4 short. Something for all
    Kneelers 1 long, 2 average, 1 short. Most should be hittable
    Only 1 x15mm and 3 x 25mm, various ranges not all max!

    I hit all standers / kneelers but missed six off the bag with wind any thing from nowt to 80mm!

    Bit more testing needed Sunday with a shorter shooter to make sure crossed strings are not a problem, they were not for me today. I think most will enjoy the test!

    latest update and good news for dog owners.

    we now have permission for this event only for dogs to be brought to the ground.

    However a few rules that must be adhered to

    all dogs on a lead at all times
    any dog pooh to be scooped up by the owner
    dogs must stay in the shoot area and not be taken for a walk acroos the rest of the farmland.
    the field we are using should have sufficient area to stretch all 4 legs.

    anyone breaking these rules will be removed from the grounds immediately.

    I've added Oaktree to the airgun club map thanks to Mike Williams' image he emailed me.

    Might be worth checking it looks correct if you know the site, but it seems to tally with Simon's directions.
