    Not long to go, it's a new venue for lots of us and I know a few people are really looking forward to their first visit to Furnace Mill. Results from the previous rounds and dates of the next ones are here.

    See you all soon.

    Like Chris says mate, anyone can turn up and have a go. We even have an Unlimited class where you can sit and range the targets if you like.:)

    Question

    do you have to shoot prone?

    reason I ask is due to my busted back (now fused back together) I am highly unlikely to be able to get up from prone - can I shoot kneeling instead??

    You can go in the unlimited class and shoot sitting if it's easier Phil and thanks for the sat nav co-ordinates.:)

    Some of the targets will be familliar and some won't be. I'm hoping we can add a bit to the current layout. ;)

    As Simon says the woodland tends to be reasonably free of wind so we'll have to think our way round that when we set the course. ;)

    Right folks as a bit of help for Jane who will be keeping us all fed can we get a list of names so she has a better idea of how much food to get in - Jane is concerned about running out so our reputation precedes us!!:D:D
