    Huge thanks to everyone at the Classic. Absolutely cracking weekend with some top shooting.
    Those who kept the thing running did a superb job, even Trev :p

    Well done to all those who won. Sure Dave will be along with the scores at some point when he's had some sleep :D:D:D

    Cheers Shaun for keeping me company and keeping me on track, it was a pleasure shooting with you mate.

    Great weekend, well done to all who helped make it such a fantastic weekend. Special thanks should go to all those that helped and didn't even shoot, booking in, marshalls etc etc.

    Thanks to Jesus for the great company, looking forward to the next one ( that's if Dave can stand the stress :eek: ) :D

    Another fantastic weekend at the Classic :) Anyone who hasn't shot this event should give it a go as it is THE best comp of the year.

    Many thanks to everyone who made the competition possible - I knowit takes many months of planning and organisation to put the shoot on and then a huge effort over the weekend from lots of people who do it for the pleasure it brings others.

    Thanks also to little Jack Harris for his company over the weekend and to all the shooters around us on the courses for the banter ;)

    Dave.

    Best shoot of the season by far, great courses, great company and great fun.
    Thanks to Dave and all the organisers for a mega competition which ran like clockwork and Duane "Gorilla Mitts" for the lift to the airport.

    I really enjoyed the weekend, courses & banter - all ran like clockwork with no stoppages on our first round.

    The stoppage on the red ft course (sunday) was a pearler - hope somebody got it on film, cracking entertaiment from the marshall involved **:D










    ** name withheld to spare his blushes (for about 2 mins):D

    I think every first timer says the same thing John, it's very easy to get bitten by the classic bug. God knows why we all subject ourselves to the rigour's of it year after year...:confused::D
    Well done to all who made it possible, you're a credit to the sport!:cool:

    No problem John, hope I was a help and not a hinderence on your first NEFTA Classic, just glad once you had settled in and actually took a breath or two:D it began to fall into place, we all put ourselves under pressure because its THE NEFTA CLASSIC instead of saying there just targets to be shot at and relax and enjoy what must be one of the top shoots in the world, easier said than done I know,( starting to sound like a veteran and its only my second classic,so I will shut up:D).
    Massive thanks to all involved from the course designers/builders and daily helpers to the stats people who have worked hard to make the event what it truly is, AWESOME.

    Massive thanks...

    Huge thanks to everyone that was involved in organising and running the Classic, great weekend.

    Great to see everyone there, thought the meal on Saturday was a great idea, looking forward to next year!! Imagine that, actually looking forward to something that involves taking 88 standers over two days... :eek:

    Thanks to Russ for the company and congratulations for getting a personal best on the racks on Saturday.... and then beating it on Sunday ;)

    Thanks again NEFTA.

    Alan and Ash.

    Amazing weekends shooting, thanks to all those involved in organising and running the event.

    Special thanks to Dave Tomlinson & Kev Sayers for swapping groups so I could get to the Crucible :) And Mick Woodhead for putting up with me for 2 days and going along with the group swap.

    Having been out of FT for nearly 5 years, it was a great introduction back to the sport. I thought the courses were superb.

    The sillhouettes still give a good dose of adrenaline :D

    Dave Thomlinson was looking for someone to blame for crashing from a 36 on the sillies on Saturday to a 28 on Sunday. I suggested you ;)
