    As there is little on over the Bank Holiday, there will be an open FT shoot at Tondu 2 on the Bank holiday monday.

    Later start i think, 10 am. Just incase bank holiday sunday has been busy.

    40 shot course + Zero + perhaps a side shoot.

    Will try and arrange some simple food, bacon butties + tea etc.

    Will probably have a few (4) more 15 ml kills out to practice on, and I think there will be a spattering of 25 ml standers + Kneelers.

    Bit of practice for the worlds a few days later??

    All welcome.

    more details to follow.

    Worlds practice

    These are what we need to practise Mike, will be up the week of the shoot to put out the required smaller kills.

    15 ml out to 25 meter - 27.5 yards !!

    20 ml out to 35 meter - 37.5 ish yards

    30 ml out to 40 meters - 44 yards

    Closest target can be 7 meters so guess 15 ml at 7 meters will be needed.

    Mike, we have two 30 ml kills, plus more than enough 15 ml.

    Just the 20ml kills we will need to sort?

    not sure what distance 25 ml standers will be at in the worlds as yet, have asked. Same for kneelers.

    Mike,
    my original idea was it to be an open practise day with no entry fee? Just a get together practise for going to italy.

    If your goping to charge as Oakwood club are you putting class prizes on?

    Thanks

    simon in answer to your question .
    this is now an open shoot .under oaktree f.t.c. so there will be no clasess of entry .
    i dont think £5.00 to shoot all day and have free tea and coffee is a lot to ask .
    however i will be giving some prizes down to 5th place in the form of jackets and hoodies and polo shirts etc
    i am hoping to have some other things aswell

    i am putting this on so the people going to the worls can have some practice but it makes sense to have it as an open

    if anyone feels that £5.00 is a lot to ask then my advice is dont come .

    i will be shooting this but not including myself in any scores as that would be unfair

    there will also be a golden shot will be pulled out a hat and the prize will be a stainless charging hose worth £25.00

    the side shoot will be the ten shot extreme and the winner will have have of the takings

    i hope this clears this up and hope to see a few people attending

    i will aslo be holding an open shoot in november and hoping to hold a christamas turkey shoot

    it is my aim to make this club work and hope that it will improve the wafta region as i believe it needs it

    any shooters that need directions can either email me or give me a ring

    thanks
