    Having made the course a tad easier that last year, I may now have to toughen it up a little bit if Little Jack is on the scene, we don't want him to clear it do we (LOL) :) ...... No, on second thoughts, I don't think he will ;) :p

    Will be nice to see you lads!

    worth the effort as its a tough Ft course and good practise. Plus there is the hft course and the shop + cafe. Be good to have a few more Taffies on tour!

    I think last bookking in is 11am?

    .... and out to 25 yards! ;)

    Booking desk should be open by 08:00, but no shooting allowed on FT or HFT course until 08:30 but the zero range will be open a little before.

    Last time for purchase of score cards is 12:00 midday.

    Top day

    Thanks Tony, superb day out again at (for me) one of the best swefta grounds.

    Just goes to show that with angles, a straight firing line can produce a very trick and interesting course. Cant say i have shot a better straight liner.

    Thanks tyo my Team mate Little Jack for the company, top shooting especially that 8 yarder lol. Now just to work on your long Standers!
    not forgetting my Tondu team mate Tosh who was giving his Walther a final outing, despite only having 2 hours sleep! Oldest swinger in town lol.


    A few snaps of a great day at a great venue.




    The chrono in action.

    Think all sailed through today and even the welsh liked the idea!

    Thanks to Peter for early manning.

    Super photo's Simon, and thanks for your comments ....

    I must admit, a great deal of time, effort, planning and construction goes into the layout of the FT couse due to the small amount of land available to us but hopefully there was something for everyone. :)

    Targets were High, Low, Uphill, Downhill, Left, Right, Reducers and Mini-reducers, and every available wind directions covered all go towards making it an interesting and varied course that packs a bit of a punch! ;)
