    Fantastic day at Maldon, thanks to all concerned.
    Lovely (long :eek:) course, some of which was in uncharted territory.
    Thanks to Jo and Simone for their good company.

    Thanks MAD

    Yes, Excellent challenging course, well organised, thanks to MAD for a very good competition.
    excellent weather even if the wind made it quite a lot more interesting. :)

    Well done to all involved today, great course and good fun even if I am really crap at kneeling a whole 50 shots. Just wish I was thinner younger and a wee bit more supple and I could also shoot of my bottom.

    Thanks Darren.

    Today was fantabulous!
    Great weather, great target placement, great company and a great host
    The "virgin" hill was a do or die, personally I crashed.
    It seemed, according to all scores that the AM and Ian andPM session were even for conditions
    Well done to Simon Ayers for showing most of us how it should be done
    I managed to double dink lane one as well.
    Stoddie and Jonno were great company as expected
    Thanks to Richard Woods and all at.MAD for a great day.
    Was it one whistle in each session??
    cheers
    Barry

    Cracking course, good mix of targets, changes of direction and terrain. Nice one MAD, great GP!! Great weather as well, hope we get the same for GP3.

    Great shoot today... and to think I nearly cried off this one as I felt s**t Saturday as i set off.This must have been one of the longest firing lines I've ever shot....and that hill :eek:

    Well done to all at Maldon for a great course and thanks for my partners today Lori & Tosh.

    PS Barry I got both in lane 1....left hand side for No 1 ...ten seconds later massive right hand side for No 2....very tricky wind;)

    PPS...who won the Gimp coat?...as if I didn't bloody know.. nearly kicked him out of the car at Peterbough services....I feel a lot of p*ss taking coming on..

    Yes as everyone else has said a cracking course with something for everyone. The hill of doom killed any chance of a good score from me but even so i managed a trophy for third in grade and as a bonus i beat Holly AGAIN :D
    So its a BIG thanks to all the MAD team from us Tawdies and i hope we can return the favour in a fortnight at GP3 ;)

    Well done Mad and Sefta. A lovely setting for a bloody nightmare :D

    Thanks to Shaun who upon checking my card phoned me up to let me know i'd forgotten to enter the Piston class... put a smile on my face :D

    Well done to Simon Ayers for the 47, top shooting!

    Lane 2!

    Thanks to all at M.A.D for today.

    Thanks to Mr. Chopping and even to Gilly, although he dont believe how bad i was feeling. Enjoyed the company. Sorry about the Wind!

    Zero range, spot on, plenty for all

    Food, nice and well priced.

    Course- The banks. Bloody long way up, especially when starting on lane 2 and then having to go back for lane 1 to finish. I would not have bothered if i had not been doing ok lol.
    Perhaps the course could have been staggered back to back on the banks to save the climb, or was firing towards the house not an option?
    no matter really, if I made it up there twice anyone can as I really am unfit lol. Good long targets on the banks, nice tree shots. Maybe room for one or two of the fulls to be a bit closer on the banks, 35 - 40y ish as there was enough wind to make that range testing. Enjoyed the banks though as you new others would drop targets there.

    Chrono field, again nice targets and for me spot on.

    Woods. allsorts in here. Long ones that needed no more than edge, the odd long one that took 2 inches. Quite a few short targets on the course, cant rember using the close focus adaptor as many times before in a gp.
    I dont mnd the odd short one (even Gilly) but i dont see them doing much in a Gp really apart from trying to catch a newcomer or high scope on the dialing trick?
    Did think that most of the 25 ml kills seemed to be 33-35 yards or under 10? cant remeber any of the 8 x25 ml being in the 20 -30 y range?
    I liked the ranges on the 15 ml, think it was roughly 8 and 18y so one of each.
    Have to say the woods is very nice setting to shoot in with the bluebells, looks perfect!

    All in all i thaught good use of the land to give variety from lane to lane, thats my type of course.

    Hope to see more Gps at MAD in the coming years?

    As simon has already said - excellent facilities (plinking range, toilets etc.) + food was great and well priced :)

    Excellent course with lots of variety - gave me a good kicking :)

    Thanks to Rob and Kev for the company - a hard day but we got through it ;)

    As for Matt winning the gimp - excellent news for me - I can give him so much grief once he puts it on :D

    Dave.

    Well done

    Well done to all involved at M.A.D for hosting the GP, very testing coarse for the conditions on the day.
    As for Simon Evans, well turns up still drunk from the night before, full of wind and piss, nearly had a heart attack after the walk up the hill to lane 2 (starting lane). Misses the second target in first lane after claiming "god that nearly killed me, cant hold steady", thought to myself this youths in for a mauling today??:confused::eek:
    48 targets later he`s beat me by one and Mr Chopping by 3 (also on our lane, who`s no mug) and carding the second highest score off first session. I ask you, is this guy pulling my chain?? or should we all have turned up ratted?:confused:
