    Well done to everyone who helped make today an enjoyable event, all the competitors as well as those at Kibby who put the event on.

    I'm fairly sure Matt will be along shortly with the results;)
    It did appear that most people where having an enjoyable day,
    First time something like this has been tried. I was fairly happy with how smoothly it ran, and hopeful that we can repeat the event next year:D

    As with all those above, a massive *well done* to all those who put the time and hard work into organising this cracking event. I can only imagine the logistical headaches multiple disciplines and multiple teams must have been to get into some semblance of order.

    It was one of the most enjoyable days shooting myself and dad have been to with the sheer variety of disciplines to have a go at and the relaxed atmosphere it all went off in. *WELL DONE* all of you!

    I managed to christen my new-old Beretta that I'd picked up last week at the shooting show (technically the first shotgun I've fired under 120 years old) which was a great relief when: a. it worked, and b. it did hit something and not just engulf me in a blue fug.

    That pistol course was an XYZ though wasn't it... I think we were the last group to shoot it and it was noticeable that the plates still looked remarkably clean. Hats off to Steve 'HW45' Whiting on his superb 21 there.:eek:

    The final result was as much of a surprise to me as anyone else, quite likely more so. Being 'fair-to-middling' in one event, 'okay' in another, 'passable' in the third and 'downright-blooming-lucky' in the fourth clearly paid off. *ahem*.

    Thanks to all those involved again.

    Anne :)

    Pistol's

    I have to agree with the others comments regards the Pistol's, it was complete guess work as no matter how still you held them they had a mind of there own! Personally I think that there was nothing wrong with the inclusion of pistol shooting as one of the four disciplines, it just needs a little thought so that people have a rough idea as to where to point the damn things in order to get them to hit the target! Constructive criticism only in order to improve what was a great fun day and just my opinion of course.

    Maybe a large archery type target at the start of the pistol course at 8yds. Take say 3 practise shots to get an idea of aim point and shoot all lanes with the same gun?
