    A gloriously warm, dry and almost breezeless day greeted us this fine Sunday morning. Conditions that have seldom been encountered this year, let alone on a BH weekend. It was a Cambs rules course this time around, and one that looked reassuringly straightforward until you actually settled down and started it.

    Far away kill: check.
    Small far away kill: check.
    Small far away kill up a tree: check.

    Wire mesh: check.

    Considering the level of difficulty the scores were remarkably consistent across all the classes. Special mention this week goes to Simon Jones who was shooting a .25 BSA blunderbuss that would have been easier to muzzleload given the reluctance of the pellets to go into the breech. If you saw any silvery grey shiny blobs on the surrounding treeline those will be his sighters.
