Mike we are only 40 miles away at Midshires.
andrew whats the postcode for midshires mate
Will pm you details
Mike don't bother , there is nothing that wil prepare you for Sywell .the GP 9 should be held at Lea Valley . A proper FT ground ??? HOLLY
not so much a practice holly .more of a day out .i just like to vist different places .
i have heard sywell is a nightmare .cant be any worse than my ground whan its windy .
is sywell a wooded area or out in fields .
Fields, bring your suncream Mike
It is a small bore ground / shotgun ground . great for them , lousy for us . the only ground i have ever shot at that is worse , is doppers ground at MAD in the open part . and when you get around the back on the banking . you will be lucky to get one out of two . nasty ??? HOLLY
Try hereward, they all know swell very well and a good bunch of lads too.
Plenty of tea n coffee
Think Holly is forgetting we are "field" target shooters.
Still, its cause he cant handle sywell really.
Sywell is fine, and accessable too, Lea Valley "way dahn sarff!"
cant say taht enjoy shooting in feilds ,i prefer woods ,thats were the sport belongs in my opinion ,
still cant judge sywell as i have not been there so looking forward to seeing it and having a play .
So its sun block and hat ,good test to see how much the scope moves.
The bank of doom and the garden, you gotta love those two Wonder if they'll lay on another airshow like last year
Shot there once before and got a good kicking from the sun and wind.
Best advice is to wear a light long sleeved shirt and keep the collar up. Take plenty of sun cream, water and a good hat.
Can't help with the wind
