    Well done to all those that put the work in to make the shoot, everyone for making the effort of turning up, some from hundreds of miles away, It hasn't gone un-noticed thank you. Feels good just to do some good sometimes: i.e Raising some money for the right cause. And a massive thanks from me to paul lawrence & neil thorneycroft, for the loan of their set ups. THANK YOU.

    No chance of that Dave, I had my minder go round with him just to make sure. I think Mark would have been better taking up my offer of borrowing a Leupold and getting some settings in and using that.

    Yes great shoot first time I have shot SFT or even sat on a cushion!!! I enjoyed the exp and would have done alot better if I prep sooner and sussed the wind.

    Thanks to all at Anston everyone involved behind the scenes inc Brian Samson who I have been liasoning with and Andy Calpin. Also to Hull Cartridge for supporting the event with Solware and we will confirm we would like to do next years event aswell. Thanks to Chris Cundy aswell for prizes. I know Paul James appreciates everyones input. Thanks to everyone hope the weather isnt as bad next year and you turn off wind turbines!

    Thanks too to Glyn for partnering me today, that was a stunning display of shooting well done on the class win.
