    We have had another fantastic Daystate Midland Hunter Series this year. We have had 156 people, in total, participate over the 6 rounds.
    A blustery day met us for the final round at Kibworth. A challenge for all who were close at the top and we had to wait to see who would crack under the pressure.
    I would like to thank all the course setters at Kibworth for a challenging course today, especially the windy lake!
    Thank you to all the clubs who have hosted a round of the series and all of the course setters, you are all evil!! 
    Thank you to Daystate for sponsoring the series and to Greg and all of the marshals, you all do a fantastic job.

    Thoroughly enjoyable series. Everyone involved does our sport a great deal of credit. Thanks to all the organisers and you Kathy for getting the scores up so quickly even though it's miserable seeing my score in print.

    Not a lot of room on some of those targets in that wind, well set out Greg.
    Another very enjoyable series, see you all next year.

    Thank you to everyone in the team who set up and organise the Daystate Midland rounds. Always enjoyable even though I've had a bit of a disaster today!!

    Well done James ( you people from Rivi can certainly shoot in the wind!! )

    Good Job Kathy on sorting the cards and getting scores up so quick

    See you next year for another session of cold, blowy mornings of chucking 30 pellets away...great fun :)

    Cheers. Nigel O

    First and foremost, well done and many thanks to Greg and all involved with the organisation and operation of the Daystate comp. Thanks too to all the course setters who have contributed to making my Sundays a misery occasionally!

    Well done to the winners; some top shooting in this series and anyone who could master todays wind at Kibby deserves a medal.

    Thanks to my shooting partners today, Mick, Simon and Rhyley. You were great company. Rhyley - tell your dad you want the new BSA for your 10th birthday! ;)

    See y'all next Autumn!

    An excellent series yet again, these miserable British winters pass by so much more quickly thanks to DMHS. Many thanks to Greg and the team for their unstinting efforts. Looking forward to the next series already.

    Not surprised you had a disaster Nigel, all the running around marshalling, I'm amazed you found time to put a score in at all:D .

    Greg,

    After it took over 4 Hrs to shoot just 30 targets and too many un necessary called targets, I think the time has come whereby consideration is given to adopting the practice used by NEFTA & I believe Cambridge HFTC. That is if someone calls a target and if it is found to be working perfectly well - the shooter calling the target is awarded a zero.

    I think some positive action needs to be taken. The current situation has got out of hand and needs to be quickly addressed.

    I had it down as taking less than three hours we started at approx 10:40 and I was of the course and finished before 13:30.
    I do think there was far to many stoppages today and as far as I know none of them where faulty targets, I went out eight times myself, twice for debris that had been blown across the kill, once for a flying bean bag, once for a broken string, the other four where all splitters.
    Over the years I have noticed that more targets get called on a windy day than on a still day:confused:
    I don't like the idea of awarding donuts for miscalled targets.
    I would like to consider doing something similar to tennis or cricket, where each shooter is allowed one call per round if they call a target and it is faulty then they keep the call, if the target is not faulty then they lose there call and cannot call another target unless there is an obvious fault like broken strings debris in front of kills and such.
    Might stop the people that see a paddle wobble and automatically assume they have hit it dead centre,

    It would just need the Marshall to sign any scorecard where a call was made and make a note as to if it was faulty or not.
    Or we don't check any targets marshals make a note of any suspect targets and these are checked at the end of the comp.
    any targets deemed faulty are then pulled from the comp.
    I may trial something like this during this years Kibby opens to see how it goes.

    One of the lads on the land next to me had his stop watch running from the first shot, 2 hours 35 for 20 targets. If it wasn't a once per year thing for me I'd have walked off and gone home early - I couldn't do that every week. It's a shame as it spoils the day somewhat after so many people have put so much work in to put a good course out and make sure everything is right.
