    I think the winners should have a trophy bought for them by the other teams... retrospective by 1 year of course :D

    I'll have to have a think about this one........no definitely shouldn't be retrospective;)

    Of course if someone is that confident of the outcome perhaps they should stake their rifle on it...

    Hi Rob - You booked in ignoring the VERY BIG BIG sign saying please don't book in till this sign is removed.

    That was there for two hours and you and six others seemed to miss it whilst we tested the site.

    Anyway - GP3 ....:rolleyes:

    Policy for Camo at ETL is as Follows as Rob well knows.
    CAMO POLICY
    The ETL shooting ground is used by the club under a licence agreement with the land owner.

    One stipulation of the licence is that we abide by a no camouflage clothing rule. This applies to all club members and visitors alike.
    This rule covers all types of visible outer garments, such as trousers, jackets, tops and t-shirts (when not completely covered up) but does not cover rifle stocks, bean bags, pellet pouches and gun bags etc.
    We must ask that people attending the GP please refrain from wearing camo clothing, as it may jeopardise our future use of our club ground. We apologise if this causes any inconvenience or discomfort for the day, but please understand that this is not our decision, but we do have to enforce it, and we really do not want to be the bad guy and have to ask people to remove or cover up items of clothing.

    Bit like Bisley.

    And lets face it - if you really wanted to dress in something daft on a shooting range - guess what it would be.

    Cheers all.

    Didnt miss it steve... it wasn't there... unless it was very small and hidden...or on a pop-up (blocked) ;)

    the front page said

    I know it said that because I was just looking at the worlds site and thinking that we have more people attending a GP in the uk than the worlds... then I booked in.

    anyway, there was no sign of any sign :D (i did see the no camo rule for ETL though :))

    There was a trophy years ago, it is probably propping up a workbench at Ripley, from what I remember it was quite a trophy too.

    I have these co-ordinates for ETL stored in my Sat Nav, but can't remember where I got them from so cannot be sure if they are 100% accurate, but I feel they will be pretty close!

    N 51.49366 E 0.40568 (from Google Maps, it looks like the start of the road that runs to the back of a very large factory).

    From the ETL website, it states "We are situated on a piece of woodland behind a large local factory on the northern edge of a village of Linford, Essex very close to Tilbury", and the above co-ordinates would look to be at that location.

    Hope this helps, until someone from ETL can confirm! ;)
