    Great to see friends from far and near and hope everyone had a good journey home.

    Still on the road home but wanted to say a massive thanks to everyone at MAD for a great weekend. Big cheers to Laity (well Net really) for putting up with us on Friday night and supplying the sloe gin :D thanks to Ian and the team for putting out a couple of great courses and to Dop for sorting out the spring on the truck.... It's still holding up ;)

    Finally I got to say well done to Steff for shooting so well, all that and having to look after me all the way round on both days :D

    thanks to everyone who set it up and run it, and thanks ian for the diesel money saturday night ;)

    What a weekend

    Just got back from taking my wife out for a bite to eat as it was our anniversy [29 years ]on Saturday .
    this weekend was not run by myself but loads of cogs in the big wheel,the food shack,the booking in tent ,the painters ,the side shoots that got looked after and Ray who took a week of his holidays soas to make this a weekend to remember for so many.
    Cleve and myself take all the credit but as I;m sure you all know we are a team at Mad just trying to be the best at what we do ,it looks as if we got it right this year and every-one was able to shoot the 60 targets.
    we hope to see you next year if the UKers allow us to hoist again and we will strive to keep the standard on the up and up .
    cheers The Mad crew

    Stopped off for the night in manchester to break up the journey home. Great weekend as ever at MAD and looking forward to next year already. Many thanks to shaun Eustace and my other partner for the weekend they were cracking company, can't remember the other guys name, older chap who kept asking if I knew who he was? Have to be honest wasn't entirely sure, Peter sparkle I think it was on his scorecard, told him if he stuck at it and listened to Griggzy he might have a chance at winning one of these one day;)

    One of the most memorable double headers yet! & for all the right reasons.
    Huge thanks to all not only at MAD but those attend and make HFT as popular as it is :)
    Thanks to the Lait household for putting us up on the Friday night, cheers to Net for supplying the evil Sloe Gin ;-)

    But saviour of the weekend was Dop?
    I managed to snap a leaf spring on the journey down, Dop took me to his workshop & manufactured a bracket and welded it on to prevent the broken section from causing a blow out on the return leg.... Hats off to you mate, your a star :))

    MAD don't change a thing, you got it spot on folks!!

    Big thanks to all at Mad for a cracking weekend, two good courses and plenty to do when you weren't competing. Thanks to Wayne and Ryan for the company on the courses both days and to Jean and Woki for keeping us fed and watered over the two nights, well worth the trip.
