    that would be (as per e-mail to oaktree members) at best the winter for me Mike. I dont have a subnday free now until mid october, by which time the winter Mfta series will have started.



    as you said The farmer wanted to pull the shoot due to the wet fields. He understandably not wanting the greass chewed up with parking and cars probably being pulled out?

    As such, i think we need to look at a couple of things.

    Wafta has to go for the year long series and allow clubs to put their "two" shoots on at the dates that suit them best, that would be "summer" for oaktree?

    alternativley and this is something i think i would like to see.

    The Bfta series is stretched out more than it is this year.

    Its very tight at the moment with a Gp every two weeks and little time for any regional shoots in the summer months.
    You cant even take a 2 week summer holiday with out missing a round

    Perhaps the gp series would be better if it went from Early April to october?
    A gp every 3-4 weeks perhaps?
    I know my suggestion of gp doube headers is on the agenda and it will be a voting issue come the Agm. so GP (thiose that dont shoot GP need not apply;)) shooters will have the say in if they want double headers.
    seems to work for HFT.
    would help spread the diary.

    I will only be at Oaktree for practise sessions now it seems wich is a bugger considering the work that went into preparing and changing the course.

    Wafta summer series at oaktree

    THE NEW COURSE IS OUT A FEW TWEAKS LEFT ON SATURDAY ,

    HOPING THE FIELD WILL DRY OUT SO PARKING WILL BE OK ,,,IF NOT CARS WILL HAVE TO PARK ON THE BANK . WE SHOULD BE OK ,

    THERE WILL BE A SIDE SHOOT AND A GOLDEN SHOT (BOTH WILL HAVE PRIZES MIGHT THROW A PRESSURE WASHER IN AS A PRIZE , )

    Drive up the ramp and stay to the right hand side follow the road around and you will see the track going around to the left follow it until you come to the T junction then Right you will come to the field entrance on the right

    Please be aware that the field is very wet so I would suggest that all normal cars try to park on the bank before the field entrance if all park facing up we should be ok

    4 x 4s should be ok in the field where possible I will rope of the bad areas

    Please also be aware that this is a very busy working farm so please drive carefully

    the zero range will be in field

    glad all enjoyed ,

    i think the changes worked well on the new course ,to be fair simon did a lot of work what makes it at oaktree is the changeable wind .just when you think you have it sussed it spanks you again ,

    iam sure that for the winter we will have a lot more changes and use a few other parts of the wood .
