    Just seen your question. Yes, the older shooters prefer it. :)

    Nice shoot ... Thanks!

    Many thanks to Rich and his team for putting on a excellent days shooting and a very enjoyable course. :)

    As always good food/drink but just for a change the weather there today was superb. Full sun shine with just a gentle breeze (by Shebbear standards anyway!). :eek:

    Congratulations to Mark Shepherd on winning with a 36 ex 40. Nice shooting Mark ;)

    Thank you Tony.

    It did occur to us briefly that at this rate we could be in some danger of losing our nickname, Windy Ridge. But we dismissed that thought in about 6 milliseconds. :)

    The course changes seem to be popular, and I think we'll carry on with the idea of the split discipline lanes. It speeds things up.

    Last time I was down we could shoot off the ground Si... palettes were optional. :)

    All the pallets are topped with astroturf which is non-slip and self draining, so most of the issues normally aligned against pallets are overcome.

    Also makes it nicer for the new BFTA kneeling rule, if you choose not to place the edge of the bag under your knee.

    The only downside is the rabbits who are in the habit of pooing on them.:mad:

    Thanks to the shebbear members....good day out shooting :)

    I thought the pallets were good with the astroturf on i didnt slip on them.....Tricky course though even with what seemed like very little wind was still enough to take one pellet right across the face plate at 45 yrd im sure a few people had the same!

    Yes Mark, I had the same on a couple of targets and that was just a gentle breeze for Shebbear (also known as Windy Ridge). ;)

    I have shot there in the past when you are a kill or two OFF THE PLATE! :eek:
