    Now that sounds like a good shoot.
    I think I'll go to that.
    I'm sure the weather conditions will be perfect too.

    I think I'll turn out for this one, although I don't know why, the field will destroy me as usual!

    James, don't feel pressured into turning up, you might take the opportunity to do something else for a change.:rolleyes:

    Sorry Neil but I can't think of anywhere else I'd rather be.
    Don't worry about the field, we have planned it all out and I'm sure you won't have a problem with it:D

    Part of the woodland course at Dowry Hill FTC, Leicester.

    The image of Marc is on the section known as 'The Ridge', 3 very different and awkward lanes - still enjoyable though!!
    The other image is in the middle of the wood (just after you have probably missed the ones on The Ridge!!!)

    Cheers

    Hope you all enjoyed todays course. I'd like to apologise for the wind but it wasn't my fault so I won't.
    Big thanks to everyone who came down to shoot and I will see you all again soon.

    Great time.

    Thanks to all at Dowry for todays shoot, had great time even if the wind had me pulling my hair out at times ( windicator blowing like mad and pellet goes straight?, not too much wind then pellet gets taken over a kill?). Food was great and good company on the course.
    Thanks Steve.
