    Congrats to all at Anston for a good day out ! It takes a LOT of time and effort to lay out a course like that. It beat me, but it made a 400 ml round trip plus B+B worthwhile ( at least thats what my wife said and she stayed at home!!! )
    Worst memory....the B****Y shots I missed.....Best ....the look on the young lad's face when he won the Air rifle in the draw...Well done Hull Cartridge Company for a Weihrauch rifle I am sure he will treasure the prize.

    Thanks also to my shooting partners Steve and Sam, very good company, helped to make a worthwhile day.

    Cheers,
    John Duggan, South Wales.

    Thanks for all the positive comments about the ukahft round that was held at anston on saturday . A special 'thumbs up' must go the campers that stayed over on friday & saturday nights & managed to leave the camping area spotless . You are a credit to airgunning , cheers ...
    On the saturday evening & all day sunday the course was left out for the campers & also our club members to pitch their skills against .Throughout these sessions every target worked faultlessly but in the comp proper , one particular target was called so many times that the chief marshall thought it best to pull the shot from the course thus awarding every competitor with 2 points for it .The majority of stoppages were in the 1st session which added at least 1 hour to it , compared with the afternoon session .
    Quite a few shooters were very disgruntled by the amount of stoppages & a lot were saying that it happens at most of the rounds .
    This got a few of us talking over what could be done to eliminate the majority of stoppages & the best idea we came up with was :
    Anyone that disputes a target that has'nt fallen & consequently has the target checked by a marshall & that target is deemed to be working ok has to forfeit all points for that particular shot !
    What do you think ?

    I personally think this is the way to go for calling targets ,i have said this in the past,because lets face it its a small % of targets that are at fault,and i have seen in the past that when a target gets called a few times shooter start to call it more.
    I have called about 5 targets in my time as a HFT shooter 6 years and not one was at fault
