    small kills

    Just had a thought,i don't remember any 25mm or 15mm kills and still no clears on a very tough coarse.
    Just goes to show you don't have to go small to make thing's hard.
    cracking coarse has we have come to expect from you castle lad's
    Thanks for all your effort's

    Shot gun start?

    Just wondering what everyone thought of the shot gun start at Castle`s winter league?? I thought it ran well and worked better than the queing system usually adopted. Any thoughts or suggestions??

    Certainly was better than queing 45 minutes just to get on a lane.

    if midland winter shoots are going to atract 60 + each time seems best thing to do?

    really enjoyed my first visit to castle FTC. Very nice ground, Trees were not as big as i as expecting but have to say a great venue to shoot. Definatley worth returning to. Think in the summer when perhaps the extra foliage may dampen the wind down a touch, it may even be worth tryig the RS again?
    Was not a good day for Rs Sunday though, was off plate a few times lol

    Thaught the course was great, kneelers wer spot on and good pair of standers (unless your a hotshot!).
    Ddespite no reducers, found the 30 - 40 yard full size kill targets that were in the wind were just as enjoyable a test of shooting as the 40 - 55 yard ones. wish there were more in Gp at that range.
    Indeed, given conditions (and pellets) was glad to have more room to guess where to aim!

    Only downside was shooting with a possessed shooter:confused:.
    How else can you miss the first three, then have the wind drop for the next 27 lol!
    Ok, there were some good shots in that little run, it was an experience to whitness it up close. Wel done El Capitano
    Have to say i was also impressed with some of the long shots Peter took out with the springer. Joy to shot with both of you. thanks

    Evan managed a cup of tea and a slice of walnut (twice) cake,

    Well i be bumswizzled! :D

    Thank you to all who made the trip to Castle on Sunday. I think the shotgun start worked well and I'm happy to see that you all had an enjoyable shoot.

    I also want to say a big thanks to Steve Page, Mark Brewitt, Neil Daniels and everyone else that put a great deal of hard work into laying out the course on Saturday.

    Great Photos guys. Shotgun start worked well, a pleasure not to queue and got everyone through in plenty of time. Pity there were no reducers but the shoot didn t suffer for it, still a challenging course.

    Agree with all the comments, shotgun start worked well with a minimum of hanging around, a good course, wasn't bothered about reducers as I couldn't hit the proverbial barn door anyway.
