    We enjoyed the windy course so much today we have decided to put on an open shoot on Sunday 27th December

    Entry will be £5.
    Half the money goes to the club and half will be given as prize money, done on score card raffle (number of draws dependant on entry) at end of shoot.
    So every once has a chance of winning as apposed to the top shots in the grade.

    Sillys as a side shoot.

    9am start, subject to weather conditions




    Please let us know if you intend to attend?

    Slight change of plan.

    Won't have the silly racks but may if time and desire dictates put the 10 shot out and shoot it 3 disapline ? ?

    Same Time Same place next year!!!!

    Thank to those that braved the slightly damp conditions, hope you enjoyed your cobweb blowing experience!
    Not that wet really but misty at times that made range finding tricky, ok not if you own a X45 Comp! :D

    Wind was on and off (Plate), when it got going it got up to about 20mph which at Oaktree is anything from 40 mm off edge of kill to way off plate! Mix in the angles and its a real challenge in the wind.

    Big thanks to my young apprentice for making the long Journey and of course to his + 2 for bringing him. Shot superbly early on, but then the welsh wind decided it was payback time! Lessons learnt I hope young man, get out in that wind more and get yourself a drop down hamster, it will make uphill 25y kneelers easier!. Oh, and watch you language on video ( see fat book lol)

    Arms dealer got off to a geat start, hitting both standers! Could the Lanyman stock be the one?
    Nice to see Young Keenan again and hopefully he will be back on wafta courses soon.
    Gadget faired slightly better than last time, best keep away from oaktree in the wind lol.
    Sheldon likewise matched his last score at Oaktrees and Maher went a few better, in fact quite a good score. Keep and eye on him Steve lol!
    Speaking of Steve, had there been one called Franklin there, he may have had a little revenge in watching the normally composed Rich B(lown apart) putting in the sort of score one may expect at East Devon on a Monday ! :eek:
    I like my new stock!

    Awesime Coaching !!

    Huge thanks to Awesime for his great coaching .... as ever. Plenty of time in the car to discuss 'Lessons to Learn' with my +2 !! Uphill kneelers are my nemesis, time to shove some metal bunnies up the Garden trees and hit them (but not the horses, dogs, etc or I'm homeless :eek:) Apologies for the language, Mum blames my hormones, plus PS4 Gaming :mad: See you at Bisley !
