    I received a text from James Osbourne last night with the following results and short report regarding the Euskadi Open after day 1........

    Euskadi day1....

    Andy Calpin and Pepone.................48
    Rob Farns, Karl Clarke and Andras.....46
    John Costello..............................45
    Nick Murphy (springer)...................43

    The course is quite easy but punctuated with some demanding long downhill and uphill positionals and some exposed long shots.
    Starting at 5pm some of the darker shots in the treeas tested the scopes.... Weather overcast but warm and humid.... Light breeze haad you out of the kill on a few occasions, but could catch you out on an occasional swirl or when it increased.
    Hospitality is superb and weve been treated to a banquet all the time weve not been shooting. Luckily we dont have to weigh ourselves in on the baggage check in on the way back.
    Travelling with the rifles out of Stansted was easy, Easyjet opened a gate for us an hour early.
    Spanish customs seemed just happy with the vaguely official looking photocopied docs Jesus prepared.
    Rumours are that next year could include Silhouettes?

    Muchas gracias, Eskerrik asko, Thanks.

    Thanks to all the foreigners came to enjoy to the 5th Open de Euskadi, English, Hungarian, Portuguese… especially to Val S and Chairman, with whom I enjoyed shooting at targets.

    Thank you very much,

    As usual Euskadi is more than a tough course up for the best, it's also an oportunity to meet great people and most of all learn from great people like you guys. Thank you all for the great time and i hope to see you all next year.

    My best regards,

    Thanks!!!!!!

    Hi everybody.
    I would like to thank you because your kindly words on behalf of the AFTE.
    I can promise you for the next yaer we'll try to reach better organization performances. We start already working on it, so even two days had passed only from the Open, we've talk a lot of time about details to be corrected.
    We were very glad to receive you.
    I would like to say that we've already the first English Shooter booked in the next 6th. International FT Open of Euskadi 2011 , with dorsal Nr.1 : ValS. Welcome on board Val!
    Cheers

    Hi friends! past two days, my heart returned to my chest after the shoot off with Andy. Congratulations to Andy and the other winners. I enjoyed Zumarraga lot these days in both shooting and outside the comp, at meals, dinners and other times we've been sharing with friends and colleagues. I want to thank the club of Euskadi, all members and their families by the organization and the treatment we have received. They make us feel at home and we want to repeat year after year.
    This year I hope to share more events like this, maybe the next is the World in Hungary, since this year by the proximity in dates will not be able to attend the European.
    I also send a greeting to our Portuguese friends, I want to visit soon, I hope we can do something together, is awaiting the Cabrera Open and the Portuguese Open.
    And a special greeting to Andy and Rob, my squad mates this weekend. The last day each line was like a small shoot off, but enjoying the whole course till the final shoot off when i have all the responsability pending off one finger :).
    We will meet in Hungary this September.

    To be honest, I might leave the gun at home next year, the shooting just gets in the way of having a good time...:D

    Being serious for a moment, I'd like to add my thanks to Jesus, Jose and all the crew who made the Euskadi such an enjoyable time from the moment we landed.
    Transporting the guns was not the hassle you might think, and the reward was a weekend of great shooting, great food and great company. And the San Miguel Selecta is not so bad either.
