    A near perfect day for shooting at Kibby today.
    We are in the process of looking at the Marksman series and looking to see if it is a little to difficult?
    We did try to make it slightly easier this month so your thoughts on this years series would be appreciated, either positive or negative we will look at all comments and take them onboard in a constructive manner.

    No problems here with the course another great one Greg the doughnut was my fault did not check the string and shot the wrong target :eek:, not personally a fan of the 50 plus yarders but that is because I am bad at judging them :D, quite like the shots you need to take indirect, make you think about it a bit, really would not want it too easy, missing annoys me as I am sure it does everyone but would rather have a challenge than be bored.

    Cracking course today really enjoyed it plenty of variety and a couple of shots that you had to come off the peg for.
    I think this years courses have been more difficult than last years, typically last year there was only one target past 45yds & this year on most courses there have been about 3 past 45yds and this year has also seen the addition of the 8mm & 10mm kills which you didn't use today but which I personally enjoy shooting.
    Also this year up until today the Kibby wind has been an absolute bitch.
    The way I see it you can either:
    1. leave as is.
    2. Base it on current UKAHFT format but with the following changes : have 1 x 15mm out to 30yds, 1 x 20mm out to 35yds, 1 x 35mm out to 50yds & then 1 x 40mm out to 60yds and probably throw in an 8mm or 10mm out to 25yds.. At least with a format people will know what ranges kill sizes can go out to.
    3. Replace all of your 35mm kills with 40mm kills don't go past 45yds & hope that the Kibby wind kicks in.
    Just my thoughts.
    Thanks to Chelle & Wayne for the company today and well done to Mark & Simon with cracking 50's recoiling & .22, well done to the 2 young guns Ev & Grego.

    Brill day today, the wind pixies were very kind to us this morning.
    Greg, just leave the Marksman as is, it keeps everyone on there toes.

    Dave had a good suggestion there about having some rules about size and distance, might make range finding (guessing) a bit better, but on the negative side would take longer to set up.

    My vote is to leave it as is but bring back the 10mm kills. ;)
