    Cambridge HFT results November 10th ‘13

    With yesterdays rain still winging its way Northwards it was a lovely bright, If a mite brisk, day at Cambridge today. Some excellent scores as you will see with special mention to young Emily Jones and her stonking *47*, hot on the heels of Dad Simon who’s starting to look a wee bit worried.
    Congratulations to Simon Vant with his outright win with 58 and Roger B close behind with 57.
    Today was also the first round of a rather niche “Phoenix-Off” competition for anyone with a Parker Hale Phoenix. So far that’s just the two of us then… myself and Keith W. If anyone else has a PH Phoenix please do come along and join in the *clack-phut-lob* fun. Today was a resounding victory for Keith and his Mk.2, so I will endeavour to re-check, re-fill and re-zero ready for Rnd.2 in a fortnight.

    Our thanks as well to team Rawlings for manning the food wagon.
    Next shoot is Sunday Nov. 24th, hopefully see you all there replete with hats, mittens and nose warmers.

    Hey, its Andrew here! Got the 3rd place! out of 4 LOL! It was a lovely day, nice course, Thanks! Sorry could not stay for the awards! had to pick up somebody from airport.

    Actually not bad, first time shooting .22 and just yesterday put a regulator in it, never been zeroed in my hands before!

    Long rages are a bit of a challenge, pellet has some drop I did not expect! I need some lighter JSB then!

    Well I really got taught how to shot by nearly everyone today :eek:o . Great course, great banter and yet another successful shot for Cambridge HFT. Many thanks to Graham my chauffer, and Alex for giving me someone to question Mr Masons shooting skills.
    Well done to all the winners today, and it wont be long before young Emily will be showing Dad how its done

    As always, shooting with Anne and Phil is enlightening, fun and humiliating in equal measures. And had I not learned from Anne's "insight" with regard to range and wind I would not have done half as well.

    I'm looking forward (sort of) to the second leg of the Phoenix Challenge, and predict that I shall get well and truly thrashed because Anne might have decided to set up her scope (rather than guess it) by that time.
