    Sorry to have to put this but when people are travelling nearly a hundred miles to shoot the series this course was terrible. We shot nine lanes which took an hour and a half to shoot, during this time there was nine stoppages, targets that didn't work and lanes that hadn't been cleared properly. There was over twenty cease fires in the morning session. The organisers must surely take responsibility and ensure that the shoots are run to the format that they are advertised.

    My fault entirely Dave and I appreciate your honesty, unlike some who were all smiles after a good score and then go slagging to mates.

    Everyone else who feels let down please accept my apologies, it won't happen again.

    Ryan it takes a big man to take responsibility for the problems today, you are a credit to the sport and the Midland series continue the good work.

    I certainly didn't feel let down by you Ryan or anyone today for that matter, OK there was a silly amount of stoppages, sh1t happens though and I should be the one complaining as I had a moaning 10year old to deal with too, but then again I expect that from a 10 year old!
    As for non spec I cant really comment as I'm still green when it comes to the rules for target pulling, All I know is I just turn up & shoot what is there and get on with it!
    Still think it was a cracking day today and I'm still smiling cause I got my first ever Gold badge, whoop, whoop! :D

    What Pete said mate and its not all down to you as the clubs that put these shoots on are aware of the UKAHFT course layout rules and if they are not sure there are plenty of people who are willing to advise. Advice for Furnace Mill, buy some descent targets the ones you used today were crap this is the reason for way too many stoppages and that is the first time I can ever remember two of the top lads leaving the course before finishing ;):cool:

    Well I enjoyed it today, and always look forward to shooting at Furness Mill, it makes the 160 miles each way worth it.

    Credit to Ryan and Gerg and to Ed and Jane...........as far as I know the organisers (Ryan and Greg are the two names I know) don't get paid so do it for the love.......if stuff happens on the day so be it, why oh why to folk have to moan........yes there were stoppages today but the last three rounds have been fairly OK so maybe things balance out in the end.

    And fair play and thanks to all who donned the high vis jackets today, another thankless task in the firing line:D:D:D:D:D

    It's another great day out in my book.

    I'm sorry mate if you didn't like my moan as you put it.Money's tight at the moment so when you drive a hundred miles to compete i don't think it's too much to expect for the course to be to UKAHFT format. If i've upset anybody with my views tough, i speak my mind as Ryan knows, better that than mouthing off at the shoot then coming on here saying how great it was.:rolleyes:

    Despite the issues illustrated by previous posters, I would also like to give a pat on the back to both Greg and Ryan. These guys not only help to organise such a great series, but are always helpful and friendly to the series competitors.
    Any event that attracts lots of enthusiasts, and is part reliant upon the efforts of a third party that is not part of the organising team will often lead to unforeseen problems, for which said organisers feel understandably, but wrongly, responsible.
    The bottom line is that nobody got hurt and most of us enjoyed shooting at some challenging targets in a tricky breeze. I can think of far worse ways to spend a Sunday morning, such as staying at home for example.....
    Lets get things into perspective folks. I look forward to shooting the next round, and remain confident that most if not all present today do as well.

    Andy

    Thanks Simon , yes , month after month I donate money for others to walk away smiling , so it is nice to get it once in a while.

    Last time I can remember winning some thing was at the first ever Quarry winter extreme ... a few years ago !

    I enjoyed the shoot , possibly we had an easier time of it as second session shooters. What I liked was that almost every target demanded a "think" first, & the times I did'nt think it through, I was punished.

    Oh also a few driver errors ... shakey jake struck again , especially after the steep walk up to the shoot , but I suppose if I ate less & exercised a bit ... it would be a whole lot easier .
