    Well it was a great day Ed, thanks to you and Jane for letting us shoot on your break. Thanks to all involved in setting up much appreciated. Got to say congrats to Milek for a win which will be one to remember in history. Fair play to the springer shooters enjoyable to watch and listen.

    No excuses from me as norn shot crap with a ailment which I am now suffering and in agony.

    Must add you sure there were kill zones on some of the targets ? If so no bigger than a nail hole ! The myth of me not shooting in the rain has been well and truly tested today I left with a bad neck and PI £ £Ed wet through but would love to do it all again. Thanks again Ed really great day

    Wet and soggy extreme

    Im sat by the fire starting to get some feeling back in my body after the total drenching ! All my clothes have been washed and dried, gun stripped and cleaned, oiled, and put away in the safe. Gun bag put ready for the skip ! ( it will never dry ) glove and clam beside me drying out as well. My partner for the day was Kenny. What a couple of drips !! We squelched our way through the course. I can't speak for Ken but I enjoyed every moment of it ! Thanks to all the other nutters that took part in the extreme aqua event ! Loads of fun shooting the dots on the distant targets. Thanks.Ed and Jane can't wait to do it again !! IN THE SUMMER SUN !!!

    it was fun shooting with you Geoff ( hiptonic), even in that much rain that went straight through my clothes ! why did I \ we bother to use a shooting mat to lie on. I too have cleaned & dried my rifle as it was soaked today, oh well it was worth it. also my pellet clam \ grove is now dry but thank god I kept my rifle bag in the car as that would have taken a few days to dry :D.

    yet another cracking day at the mill cheers to Ed etc. well done too Mick some good shooting there, & to the rest of the folks who braved it today. plus next time I will have to bring a springer down too.
    I had a not a bad score seeing as I could not see through my glasses ( my excuse ), I will remove them next time in that much rain ha-ha.
