Thanks to Dartmoore for putting on the showdown today.
Nice and windy, pity i shot like a Tart
Great food and very resonable.
Be interesting to see a big national there perhaps??
Just like to say a big thank you to Gus for today's shoot,it was a testing course with that gusty wind. Just need to make sure that the trophy is there in future for the winner of the FT at the end of the competition,not your fault I'm sure but was left a bit flat at the end when going home with nothing to show for the hard work.Second time this has happened so I'm led to believe,not good enough by the person who held on to it from last year..!!!
Many thanks again mate,very enjoyable.
Least I forget
As ever, just a few snaps to remind us of the day.
Though i am trying to forget.
Like i forgot where to aim
Comments to ammuse not offend.
I arrived early and thaught i reconised the hat??
so i had a chat with "Rich" while he did a bit of gardening
Zero all redy to confuse me
So i went for a walk to have a look at the course, and mutch to my delight is spotted this in the standing lane
Not far, about 22 yards but yes, a 25 ml.
i missed it, but only cause i was shooting very badly today. It could have been 75ml at that range and i would have missed
Excellent tea and cakes, plus of course hot food. Top job and very cheap
Knockdown Chickens and fresh eggs for the burgers?
Barry seems to have convinced Peter to unplug the chrono
Gus trys to look offical
While damian trys to look inconspicuous with his new Pink camo gun bag. He will have the jacket and skirt to match soon?
I obviously let Steve Frankiln knock me out in rd 2 as i had to take photos!
Eventual Showdown champion Nigel street, well done
Showdown runner up Paul Salmon
I`m thinking of joining N.Peth next year and becoming Joesephs team mate. Thats if I can find a simular Gimpy
The lazy lot
After all that Digging, Rich had to have a lie down too?
Fear of a Heavy Welsh Chap not seeing them while prone,
meant some took to H & S vests to avoid being trodden on!
Some took it a stage further and have got their Bean bags kitted out in the H & S Hi vis stuff too!
Told you he likes matching kit
Dartmoor had a GP in my first year of national shooting, always memorable, spent the afternoon chatting with DWB in the sunshine... it was my first qualification for the national showdown as well.
Nice to meet you Simon, thanks for the great photos, and the advice you gave Rob Meatyard about a possible GP course.
That was the only time I met David Baines, and he won! As sad loss to the sport.
