    I have been studying a picture of andy pipkin and andy calpin side by side for some 20 minutes now at first i was a little confused as to getting mixed up with them but then the penny drop and have discovred the following simalarities
    The long locks of ginger rinse on andy pipkin may be a cast back to MR C's 70's era
    The image of MR C sat innocently humming away to himself very much like andy pipkin in his own little world
    The image in my head of MR C seeing a pellet drop 300 yards away lurching up whilst no body is looking shouting "I want that one"

    Theese are the three simalarites i have noticed but if anyone else can add more please continue this thread:D

    I was rather worried about Calps at the last winter league - after seeing him pickup around 3 stone of spilled pellets and then collecting 38 trophies I could only fear that either his back would go as he waddled back to his car or at the very least the weight of lead in his pockets would make his trousers fall down and trip him up :eek:

    I can only hope he made it home safe and will be at Redfearns to lead us against the Midland hoard on Sunday.

    Well done Calps - top shooting this winter :)

    Dave.

    Matt,

    Your forgetting his World Championship win in 1978 when it was held in Eckington with pre baked conkers soaked in dripping threaded on string.

    His autograph is a must for any collector , i have a copy of one next to my signed Lena Zavaroni picture & Ena Sharples hair net tribute collection.

    Please spread the word regarding his autograph.

    I know, i have been doing his Grades.

    Stangley enough though he has droped to A class, mainly as it think it will be very hard to beat his scores so it dont matter as long as he aint in AA with me.:D

    Happy Birthday Mr. C.:)

    I do have a 1990's phots I have been meaning to get him to sign since, er 1990. I was hoping by now he would have learnt to spell X

    oh well, happy birthday anyway and hopefully for a present some one will have got you a Virgin :eek:
