    So round 20 , the last round of the summer series took place tonight ,
    OMG WHAT WERE WE DOING
    At least 7 people shot wrong targets and a few got donuts on a totally windless evening :eek:o:eek:o:eek:o
    various competitors run out of air
    As we all walked off scratching our heads in the failing evening light the fog just hung there waist height adding to the weird finale
    Commiserations to neil who would have cleared it , but alas shot the wrong target ,
    The series has been a great way for a lot of us to experiment with various styles and kit changes that makes our club one of the best
    Long may it continue , thanks to Dop for making sure the course is always sorted

    well said , it was a relaxed shoot for most of us tonight ,maybe too relaxed , the conditions were there for a top score tonight yet we manage to find new and inventive ways to hinder our scores,:eek:
    thoroughly enjoyed it as always .x

    Well said

    Well said Vinny. It's a shame that the summer wednesday evening has come to an end ........ as clearly many of us still need practice in pulling the strings before we shoot!

    Oooooppppssss

    Imagine the situation...

    One of your shooting partners...let's call him "Cholly" takes a shot and plates the target.
    He even considers getting it checked as he can't see a new pellet mark on the plate.

    I ask him "was it the diamond below the stander ?"

    "No" he replies, "it's the rabbit in the dark tunnel"

    Then your other shooting partner...let's call him "Vonty" shoots the target and it falls. Pulls the string and it goes to the diamond below the stander.

    Oh how I laughed....double donut on one target...and it let's me take the win between us !!

    Schoolboy error....PULL THE STRING.....:D:D:D

    Well at least I didn't shoot the wrong target - might have donutted one!!!!!!

    It has been a great series and, as Vinny said, thanks to Dop for making sure the course was ready for us each week (with a little help from his friends)!!

    We've braved all sorts of weathers, but have certainly learnt a lot more about our kit and how to shoot in the wind, rain and even the sun!!! Latest lesson is - if in doubt, pull the string - or get the mickey taken out of you!!!!! :D

    Jean has got the last round scores (dunno why) and as soon as i can grab them from her ill post them up here.
    Vonty is doing his magic and collating the scores and should have the final results very soon.
    cheers for the comments they go a long way.

    Weds 26th

    These scores are correct. There were only 4 of us who braved the wet conditions to compete, and Nick walked away with the money on handicap!!!
