    BFTA GP6: NWFTA Bewitched by Byley...

    Some days, the unruly mistress of whoms affections we desire can be mastered. Some days she requires a gentle caress, other times a much firmer hand is required... but today she was in charge. A flirtatous syren called you to come out and play, yet if she felt you were playing shy, or you were showing her the same trick twice, she turned her back and left you wanting. The course had been set to for her,and she took full advantage of the wide selection angles and exposures.Constant attention, courage, and second by second decisions were required to keep her in hand, yet she was always playing away given any chance. She came in from the south, and threw her arms round the course's flanks in an embrace that left no area free of her attentions.

    In the morning, the windmeister Ian Taylor and Steve Mason danced with her the best, just dropping the 5 points each, yet there were many a seasoned shooters who fell foul to her fickleness and temper. In the afternoon, Andy Calpin looked like he had her in hand, carrying just 2 dropped shots for most of the course, yet he fell out of her favour dropping a further 5 later in the day. But there were many more who suffered her spite to a greater degree. It was said that perhaps never, in a field, has so much been lost, by so many, by so little... I don't know if that's true, but I suspect many wished we used 50mm kills.

    Thanks to the Byley crew for the shoot and support, and we hope that perhaps Trev sacrificed enough today to have her in a better mood for our visit to Emley Moor in two weeks time.

    Scores will no doubt be on the BFTA website soon, and i'll stick some pics in the gallery later.

    Ever thought of writing for those erotica books rob :eek:

    You have such a way with words didnt realise i was there ;)

    Great shoot wasnt it

    Some are going to whine and say it was too long (ive already heard them) but this course MADE you up your game whether you are already a AA Grade or if you are one of the lower ones it didnt care you had to dig deep.

    Well done to all winners and hope everyone had as much of a good day as i did. Bring on emley moor :)

    regards

    Erotica books Loopy? Dunno what you mean :D

    There's some scores up here http://www.bfta.net/BFTADocs/gp6scores.htm but Steve says they're a bit quick and dirty, and i've noticed quite a few names missing... Tony has the cards, so the official ones should be up soon...

    Tony asked me that if anyone spots any errors or has any scoring questions, could they email him on Comps@BFTA.net

    Not sure about Rob's description from yesterday but I do know I struggled all the way through the course.:confused: Well done to everyone who managed anything over 40.

    I have added a link to some pictures on the photo thread.

    probably why your struggling with my description... :D:D

    official scores are up on the BFTA site under results... i must say, i'm impressed with the scores in the other grades... 41-40 top 3 in A, 40 in B... something like 30 in C, mid 30's in SFT... i know some had a bad day, but wow, you stand still for 5 secs and you better be prepared to be trampled by the herd out for scalps!

    Cheers Neale :)

    That makes interesting reading...

    Walther and AA1 are neck and neck after 6 shoots...:eek:

    Calpin looks very strong, in AA, along side Gillott... Costello and the dark horse Penman loom as well... and there's still 3 shoots left for other people to throw the throttles forward and upset the runners as well.

    Ian looks good in A, but there's a bevy of shooters with a shoot in hand that could come close to him next time around once the scores start to be dropped...

    Simon Higgins could be close to sewing up B grade, but then his chasers are close behind consistently, so if they stay close they could be chasing him to the end...

    Nothing in it in C grade

    Springer... well Marc will be back i'm sure to try and fight it out with nick, and perhaps the open grade as well!

    Richard has Brian Samson to hold off in SFT.

    4 targets seperate the sillys' top 5, except Calpin and Woodhead have a shoot in hand...:rolleyes:

    No pressure! :eek::D
