    Davey's GP was a good one Rob;) long but to be honest it didn't seem long at the time as every lane had a differnet angle and target placement to keep you thinking. Every lane was completely new and different.

    Conor you hit the nail on the head earlier, the average will drastically tumble but more importantly we will lose the wind effect.

    Why not forget the ranges, course builder/s discretion to make best use of the ground, if not its boring.
    Anyone can throw a course out, what i do expect is to be able to see the target.

    The 80 will only pick up grass, mounds and trees in the way like any other scope, course builders show some sense.

    Conor if you put EVERY target at it's maximum distance that will be 46.2 yards av or all the positionals and reducers at max plus 30 targets at 50 yards that will be 43.2 yards av could be an intresting season.

    only problem with putting loads of targets out at 50 yds plus is unless the winds changeable you soon get your wind sussed as they are all roughly the same, reducers closer in can be far more challenging!

    Thanks Holly

    Holly,

    I say this for the lads in the club Thank you buddy...

    We used the system of mixing it up for everyone to enjoy really, we had approximately 12-13 50+ yarders out, but made sure it wasnt all long shots just made the best of the angles of the ground itself....

    Were glad you enjoyed the shoot as well fella....

    The reason you enjoyed Nelson so much was because you shot with me, a chance for you to see some real talent in action. :D
