    Thanks to all at Cambridge who put out a cracking testing course today. A lot of hard work and effort had gone into it to make it very challenging. Congratulations to all the winners, see you all at Buxted

    Cracking day down at Cambridge today. Nice course, nice grounds, nice grub & a "changeable" wind to spice things up!:D Thanks to Barry & Mark for the company + a special well done to Barry on the win! All involved in organizing a great day need a pat on the back.:p

    Congratulations Cambridge.

    The best course I have shot there. Very enjoyable and good company to shoot with (thanks Wayne and Paul).
    I feel a little cheated however as I have no Cambridge mud to spend months cleaning off my kit :D

    Thank you to the organisers, Cambridge for hosting and the army of course setters/marshals/car park attendant and not least the chef.

    Great day, challenging course (for me) and lastly but not least, my shooting partner Mr Thompson, enjoyed your company and wit.

    Thanks to all at Cambridge. Was great to shoot an honest, no gimmicks course.
    Shows you don't need oversize / undersized / custom targets and the results are about 4 stoppages all day.
    Wind killed me but thought it was an excellent day.
    Also very well done to all the winners (including Simon Harrison my shooting partner) and to the BSA team who stole almost all the silverware.
    And finally....GO MAD !!!!

    Thanks to everyone at Cambridge for organizing this round.
    The course was deceptively difficult, even without the Cambridge Gales.
    Great day.

    Massive pat on the back for Matt and the rest of the Cambridge massive. Really well thought out course that had a good mix of range traps/kill size variations/targets positions, it made me work really hard for the score.. Also many thanks to the cooks for doing one of the best burgers i've had at a shoot:)

    Congrats to Baz to the rest of the winners, sorry me n Lanky Mark couldn't stay but i had an early flight booked for work this morning and needed to get back to chill out a bit.

    One very tiny comment though about the target that was in a 'dog kennel' and very close range. If you had paid a lot of money for a scope that target would probably have been ok. It's about shooting skill and not how much your glass cost.:)

    Also may I add there was not one peg where I felt disadvantaged for shooting left handed .

    I could "just" make out the dog kennel target with my old falcon merlin but only just if you "winked" the paddle! The kill was silver by the time I shot that target though!

    Absolutely cracking course with a little bit of everything! Also great company shooting round with Andy Wilson and Andrew burgess, two people who I know to look at but not to speak to but both cracking blokes and diesel too! Thank you very much Cambridge!

    Cracking day at Cambridge, one of the most enjoyable shoots this year had a bit of everything.
    Chatting to Matt and I know he was aware that the dog kennel and the very steep tree shot where causing people problems.
    Hindsight is a wonderful thing.
