    CSFTA Round 6 - At last

    After a few rounds off bad weather postponements, Round 6 is on.
    Ground underfoot is quite reasonable, as MVAC held their HFT Winter league round 23-2-14 with no major venue issues.

    Would advise though of checking the directions to Meon Valley AC with a route planner, especially if you're a new visitor.

    Anyone not certain where MEON Valley is, see Google Map reference 51.01173 , -1.05958
    Take the side turning, off the main road and follow for approx 1.5 mile. Please drive slowly and watch out for the pheasants.
    A272 at Bramdean is closed. Best to approach via the A3, via Langrish, and East Meon.

    Can't Wait

    Yup, plan is to have a competative crack at 40 targets, even though I've not shot for quite a while.
    The course goes out on Saturday, so it should be a reasonable weekend.:cool:

    Well done to the Meon crew today. Top stuff. A shoot that showed that it doesn't need everything at extreme to test, and didn't we get the wind to prove it. Apart from the few that seemingly wanted nothing the rest were a case of counting kills out, sometimes off the plate.
    Well done to Glenn Newman with his 32 closely followed by Justin Wood on his 31. I had to dig deep to keep ahead of Judit showing that a jacket and march does little to keep down a c grader who sticks the cross hairs in the right place.
    Nice shooting all. Looking forward to north oxon next weekend :)

    Good fun. Well other than the killer pothole …… so few tire places open on Sundays (none in Petersfield!) but eventually found one in Alton. Sorry if you were stuck behind me on the umpteen roads I crawled along at 40+ - not many lay-bys these days, but I puled over a few times.
