    OK, what's the betting we'll get to shoot this one? Weather is looking very threatening for this weekend!:(

    Just looks cold for our winter league at Wendover, just -3 degrees... that's assuming that Friday's rain isn't snow...

    Looks like heavy snow across the area for our CSFTA shoot at Wendover... will have to keep an eye on this.

    Guess it's a case of seeing what saturday brings...

    Bets

    I will have a hundred quid on it - that it's on

    Seriously though, we have put the course out today in artic conditions i.e. laying snow and heavy frost with water frozen. The forcast is for a very heavy frost tonight (worse than last night) but nothing that would stop the Harriers from holding the winter league shoot, maybe snow or sleet a bit later in the day.

    PLEASE BE CAREFUL ON THE ROADS ETC ON THE WAY TO THE SHOOT, AS ICEY ROADS ARE EXPECTED !!

    Concerned for no reason in the end. The snow held off till we'd finished, indeed one of the most benign days I can remember at Harriers!
    A special mention for our Junior Shooter at Millride, Mitch Tomes, with his score of 26. A far from junior result. Well done mate.
    Many thanks to the Harriers crew for all their efforts today, excellant!;)

    Three Double Dinked Lanes took their toll on my score, plus I dropped the closer of the Kneelers! I did get the Standers though.:p
