    There seems to be more and more interest in shooting Spring guns in competitions at local comps and the UK Springers , But...........where are the Springer shooters prepared to have a go at the Worlds at Kelmarsh or UKAHFT events.
    At present , I think there are only 2 UK entries and 3 Dutch entries at Kelmarsh :eek:

    So come on you Spring gun specialists , lets see some more entrants or the class could be lost from the diary. All air rifle comps would be PCPs only and you know how boring that would be ;):D.

    Springers Here!

    Hi Andy.
    Don't worry at all for the losting of spring class. At least here, In Euskadi, there are a lot of very good specialists in this class.

    Our chairman Sanjon was in the Ireland Worlds with his springer Cometa two years a go.

    In our league, a lot of times the springers won to the PCP's, specially when Peña is shooting with his Tx200. Very good shooter!.

    Anyway, if you like, you'll have the oprtunity to live this experience in our next Open to be held on 3&4 of July. You, all, will be wellcomed in our Open. There are , for instance, seven English people booked in the Open.

    Come on, mates!.

    Regards

    Hi Andy.
    Thanks a lot for your interest in our Open. I've pm to you with some explanations about the travel.

    Instead to fly the flag as you told, in Euskadi you can wear the Txapela . Txapela is a typical hat of the Basque Country wich is offered to the winner. You can see the Txapela in the poster of the comp , but before you wear the appreciated Txapela you should fight in the field with our Peña, Victor, Suidos ( last winner), etc.... :D:D

    Here you can find some information.

    If you need more information, please don't hesitate to ask me for.

    Regards
