    Got to agree, lovely ground and really enjoyed shooting it.

    A big thanks to Mike who put so much work in.

    That wind was so evil though! Mind you, very satisfying on the odd occasion I was brave enough to go far enough off the plate to knock the target down!!

    Not a bad place really

    It has to be said, the ground at Mikes place is superb for what we do.

    It is a fantastic ground for FT as shown on Sunday and you would thrive for HFT as well. The setting of the ground is spot on and that wind, well theres not alot you can say about it really....stunning.

    As Doz has said lets hope theres more comps up there in the future. Might be an idea to look at a nice Open now and then?? Just a thought for Mike....


    Thanks for a cracking day

    Berty

    sundays shoot

    thanks boys it was great to have you all there . i must say a big thanks to carl hill . he has spent the last 3 months up there sorting it out with me

    i would like to hold a open shoot there (get to use those 15 mm kills)

    i have been very lucky and to have farmers that are willing to help out is great

    anyone would be happy with a ground like it


    see you at nelson boys

    I agree Mike, the farmers at your place are spot on guys, was nice to see them at the shoot and having a chat to us all as well.

    An open up your place sounds superb fella.

    Dont forget mind at Nelson this weekend, we have got the bbq on the Saturday and if you want to camp your more than welcome.

    Bring your own mugs for tea and coffee as it will be there for you to have a good time...

    Plus we will have a course set up for both days to enjoy the weekend up the ground.

    Well impressed with the alternate Tondu ground, lovely setting, bit suprised to see a thundering great log cabin up there!!

    as for the shoot, thats got to be the windiest event I have been on so far, absolutely loved it, theres something strangely satisfying when you knock down a long shot in such wind the crosshairs are well off the plate!

    many thanks to the lads for the work put in!

    Berty is the course going to be FT/HFT again?

    Mike

    Hi guys
    Sounds like you had a great shoot, I'd be interested in having a shoot there at the next one its one of your combined FT/HFT type shoots.
