    Enjoyed my first visit to North Petherwin yesterday
    compact little Ground, think every lane was 4 targets which i enjoyed, as it meant i only had to get up 10 times!
    Interesting painting on some of the targets, personally I have no problem with variations as being old school to me a Magpie target should be black and white.
    Not seen many orange rats mind but it was an experience!
    Really liked seeing the (real) reducers on the course and the reduced kneelers and standers, excellent targets.
    Good selection of full size long sitters and a couple of long standers made it a challenging course despite little, or to me no wind;)



    Thanks to Tony Fouracres for actring as pathfinder and shooting partner, thanks to all that helped run the event.
    Definatley another swefta grounds that i would look forward to returning to.










    A few pics to remind us of a good day





    Though personally i would rather forget this one, only about 11y? 25ml, easy shot!

    Tony Shot it but forgot to dial, i was so peed at missing T37 a minute earlier I forgot to kneel, though I will blame lack of sleep for that!















    This is me taking a reduced Kill kneeler, in the corrct position, Kneeling lol

    Thanks to Tony for taking once again excellent pics, of ME!

    Tricky end to the course with some tough targets, Did he get them

    And the 40+y stander?








    [​IMG]

























    18m 25ml stander. I usually dont miss these at Tondu when practising.
    Today though I was knackered and had a huge pulse bouncing the cross hair from top to bottom and past Kill !
    That meant not a chance of hitting it lol
    i will get it next year:eek:

    Nice photo's Simon, you will have to bring your camera to more SWEFTA events to capture the day :)

    With regard to taking some pictures for you, with an all singing and dancing camera like that all I had to do was press the button .... easy peasy really, no problems at all. ;).

    Thanks for partnering me also.

    Sorry I did not notice you about to take the last close kneeling target sitting, I would have told you had I been watching but I had turned away in case of any pellet bounce back, :eek: especially just being hit in the eyebrow from bounce back on the 8 yarder a couple of lanes previous.

    That was a good score Joe for your first SWEFTA shoot, and it's nice to see young ones coming into the sport. Well done Joe.
