The Tondu tourer is coming your way
shall have at least 3 i would guess from tondu, maybe the Nelson lads will follow too?
We are all set for the weekend, course looks good and hopefully the wind will blow.
As a 1st for a SWEFTA shoot we have also hired in a proper toilet so no more going behind a tree...
If the weather holds of there will be the option of parking in the field opposite the shoot as per the GP. This will be decided on the morning of the shoot for cars, 4x4 should be OK in the field and park nr the hedge so as not to damage the grass.
The kneeling a standing comp will be held over the last 10 GP targets, you have to take 5 kneeling and 5 standing. The trick is deciding which stance to take to maximise your score.
See you all sunday and if any regions shooters want to come down and shoot your more than welcome to attend as a guest. and the shoot will be sign posted of the A373 just passed the pub.
Cant make this one Chris due to a clash, but hope to catch up soon
Think we are up to two cars /5 shooters so far Chris.
This may increase for sunday if Wales play poorly saturday afternoon and no one feels like a drink!
Dont think the Nelson lads are travelling this week after they were whoooped by tondu A team last week at Purley lol
Standing kneeling comp sounds good, be interested in having a go at that and will have he extra £35 with me!
what is the postcode/address for east devon ftc.
If your going with Derk, he has the directions? We shot gp 7 there last year.
Sorry, don't know postcoad but the Sat Nav co-ordinates are
Get off the M5 southbound at Junction 28 (Cullumpton) and turn left towards HONITON.
Follow that road for about 3-4 miles and there is a white pub on the Right called "The Cottage Keeper".
Turn right just after the pub (on a sharp bend) and follow the road into the wood. Go straight over at the minor crossroad and the shooting ground is a few hundred yards down on the left, just past the scrapp metal merchants.
I'm sure that Chris will have some signs out from the pub onwards.
i will have to ring him after its my turn to take him. me thinks
That would be an interesting trip with you Driving.
there's a google map link on the forum's main page...
lol depends how my mum feels if she fancies a ride to devon...............pasties
Good to see the weather has picked up for sunday, looking forward to it.
It was nice to see some of the WAFTA shooters at East Devon today. Hope you all had a good time.
Thanks to Chris & Jerry who done most (if not all) of the work setting up the course which I thouroughly enjoyed.
Also great food Chris, your'e turning out to be a good Chef, but I still wish you can get back shooting again soon!
Good to see Steve Franklin making a comeback with his S400, nice shooting Steve.
Yes thanks to Chris and Jerry for all their work and a great start to the season. Wind on the first 10 or so did the damage for me. Very impressed with the new cantilever targets. Pleased with the new scope couldn't fault it today and think Alec is pleased with his too but the bloke he stole the alloy wheel off must be pee'd off
Thanks to all my fellow "East Devon" Ftc members for putting on a really enjoyable shoot today.
Very tough course using much of the Gp course from last year, well the first 40 targets but this time with some wicked wind, off plate was not unknown today on a longish course!
Great to have a nice shooting position and very impressed with he see saw Tree targets, who needs ladders.
I think all from Wales enjoyed and hope to be at some more Swefta shoots through the summer.
We really enjoyed the Standing / kneeling side shoot, good practice and a great laugh. Nice to see the shop there and the 2nd hand table which took lots of money from the Welsh! Unsurprisingly the food stall took most money from em!
Nice to catch up with you Tony and some other old friends, good to see the Smiths out in force today.
It was hard work following you Tony and judging where to drop shots, could not come into your neck of the woods and embarrass you first time out. In the then end I judged it to a tee, just giving you the 1 shot this time, team mate lol.
See you in a couple of three weeks.
Till then, a few snaps of the day.
Top of the pile today was Alec Gibbs, using the Sightron. Think Alec likes tis ground?
Been a few years since I saw a Shamal
Top Team AA today, but only for today, young Tony
Dont Think Kevin will mistake his ev2 for the others around
Very interesting way of getting targets up trees, the target was on a long arm that swings up into position and I can think of a few grounds where this would be a good addition
Topping the Welsh invasion was Arms Dealer who not only found an unexpected arms deal, but fluked the £5 prize money on the Stnading & kneeling side shoot. That after missig the plate on a stander in the comp!
Just like this
Air Ace Douglas Bader made an apperance, announcing his entrance with the words to score master "Grandad" Rees by saying "You wont need many "0" on my card today.
And he was right, apart from the 13 x 0!
Good bit of heel digging and I think title of Welsh shooter of the day to Young Jelly Fish. Not so much of the wobbles today but a disater on the start, finding the gusty wind really hard to deal with. However depsite missing the first 16 or so targets he ended up woith a creditable score of 14.
It was either Wind or hitting a target at last, Whatever it braught what FT is and should be about,
enjoying it and smilling
Standing, Arms dealer could not even take a photo without the shakes, let alone hit a target
Wish I had my Hft gun with me today, really like the Swefta approach to Hft.
Super pictures Simon, .... very good from that pocket size instamatic you were using!
Thankyou to everyone that came along to EDFTC today and good to have the WAFTA guys make the trip. surprising how a little more wind can change the characteristics of a course... Nice photos Simon..
Sorry I have not wrote much but i am shattered.......
Realy enjoyable course, excellent side shoot, great photos, and I kicked Simons arse again, good day.
