    Cambridge HFT WINTER DIABOLICAL results 2015

    A beautifully bright, clear, and suspiciously calm morning awaited us today for this annual shootis horribilis. 30 targets (plus a ‘Golden bunny’) all set out to a spec so far removed from UKAHFT that UKIP are probably adding it to their manifesto hit-list as I type.

    General guidance for the WINTER DIABOLICAL;
    1. Can you see the target clearly?
    -It’s probably the wrong target.
    2. You thought you could see the target, but when you got down on the peg it disappeared?
    -It’s the right target. Bet you wish you’d added Yoga to your New Years resolution now eh.
    3. I think I can see a target, but it looks ever so small. And its behind a tree. In the next field.
    -Yes, that’s the target.
    Added fun this year included the dreaded drainpipe; a section of which was laid in front of the target, only not pointing in quite the same direction so as to obscure 99.97% of it.
    Congratulations to all those who survived with nerves and fingernails intact and it was wonderful to see our Dutch and Czech contingent back in such force again.

    So the scores....
    Hmmm. Well, as you can see there are always a *few* people who frankly just don’t give a course like this the respect it deserves. If they’d thrown in the odd “oooh”, “Ahhh” or “ummmm” every so often for good measure just to give a faint sense of uncertainty it’d make those of us collecting enough donuts to make a paperchain feel a little better. But no. Instead Simon Vant and Jeff Westley have to pitch up with an unnerving 48 in the open class, only to be trounced overall by Kyle springing his way to an astonishing *49*:eek::eek::eek:.
    Pass. I don’t know. Clearly he sacrificed something. Keep a close eye on him next year, any sign of ritualistic dancing around a pellet pouch whilst emitting “boinging” noises before the shoot let us know and we’ll make sure we outlaw it.

    What an event to forget your shooting mat... The washing machine is still rinsing the mud from my clothes.

    Fantastic targets, hilarious misses, very satisfying hits and a crash course in yoga all thrown in. Enormous fun from the first pegs doughnut to the very fine shoot-offs (when the finalists show everyone else how you need to shoot to be a finalist).

    Thanks to all involved. Same again next year please! :)
