    For those who do not shoot at Iceni on a regular basis . this might be a good tip for GP6 .the wind there is pretty straight forward till you get to the area around the pond . then wind and water work there magic and it is difficult to see what is happening out at the target . top tip is to set your scope out beyond the target and come in . why ? . if it is a hot day there usually some heat haze behind the targets . this will give you an idea of the diection and the strength of it . luck HOLLY:):D

    Luck .

    Good luck on the course mate , Iceni is a very old club for FT anyway . the course does not change a lot . but it is never boring . a very good mix of targets and the wood is quite deep . so any wind is usually fairly light in the summer but it can be a bit back and forth . the hardest bit is as you near the pond and where you start on lane one in the open at the top of the course . looking forward to it my self ??? HOLLY:):D

    You may be in for a shock then Holly, lane 1 is now at the bottom, right next to the pond :p

    Hi.

    Can you send an email request to : enquiries@iceni-marksmen.co.uk and I will ensure Simon see's it.
    I'm sure it won't be a problem, as we are over-subscribed for the afternoon.

    Andy
