    Looking forward to Sunday.

    Then course is set, and it's a belter. Should be a good day for everyone.
    We're making your lot shoot from 5 yds behind the trigger line :D (you don't expect the English to be fair, do you :eek:)

    What a day at Rivi we had everything, rain, hail, snow and a very tricky wind. Even with the bad conditions all seemed to enjoy the day and even better we beat the Scots again. Cheers for a great day.

    Agreed Dave. It was great to see our northern brothers once again. Its a pity the weather couldn't have been a bit more pleasant, but I reckon we all enjoyed/survived the maelstrom.

    Maybe we should consider organising something north of the border?

    The jacket was removed to release the smuggled haggis into your area, just had to wait for hail so they would feel at home.

    Thanks Rivi - Hollins Green

    Dear All,

    Just a quick note to also thank Woki, Dave, Rammy, Ray and all at Rivi and Hollins Green for putting on the shoot and for their hospitality.
    Even the Extreme weather could not put a dampener on the procedings and we all had a very enjoyable day.

    Well done to the record number of 39 Scottish Shooters to attend an HFT Shoot in England,
    with 37 on the SARPA Bus and special thanks to Steve and Bob from Tayside for making the journey by car.
    Thanks to SARPA for subsidising the coach and well done to Marc Elder on winning the
    SARPA Indoor Moving Bus Pistol Competition with David Robertson 2nd and Andy Lambie 3rd.

    Thanks to Woki for posting the scores up so quickly.
    Well done Steve Cochrane on being Top Scot on the day with a great 51.
    and also to Rob Mcnee for having the Top "Oddball" Score of the day whilst shooting in .22 Class
    (at least we beat the English at something)

    The overall England v Scotland HFT Challenge was decided by the top 20 Scores from each Nation.
    England HFT 1005 points
    Scotland HFT 885 points
    We congratulate Team England on their Victory, and thank the Scots for putting up a great effort despite being outnumbered 2-1.

    Congratulations to James McLachlan of Rivington Rifles on Winning the 2012 Winter Gauntlet Series Overall.
    (surely he must be Scottish!!!!)

    Finally thanks to Graham Easton and Susan King for all their help with the arranging of this trip.

    Yours in Sport

    Ian Horne
    SARPA FT/HFT Match Secretary

    Hi Ian,
    It was an Honour to have your people down for the shoot.

    Pity the weather was so adverse but hopefully all enjoyed the day.

    Mr beeker,
    We'll be catching those Haggis for bloody months, they're fast little buggers :D

    Just love the thought of a "moving bus pistol competition". Do you reckon Arriva might be interested as a way of improving flagging use of public transport?

    As for the Winter Gauntlet champ, his ancestors were indeed Scottish, although his father is a known wastrel of time, money and expensive target rifles.
