    Sorry, don't have a Post Code, but the actual Sat Nav Co-Ordanites are:-

    N 50.238657
    W 5.129406


    Route to Cornwall FTC from westbound carriageway of the A30:

    A30 to Chiverton Cross.
    Take A390 towards Truro.
    At Penstraze, turn right on minor road to Chancewater.
    At T junction turn right then first left onto road for Falmouth.
    Follow this road to entrance of club on left hand side of road under high voltage power lines.

    Thanks Tony, may have to miss that one, its a bit far and clashes with aTondu shoot.

    Pity, as it means i could only make 5 league shoots?

    That agricultural trailer isn't even on our site :D

    The club lies beyond the road and is bounded by the stream on the right and the hedge line that separate the old mine land from the field at top of the view.

    My boss has a mate with a light aircraft and got a flight to take some shots of the site in general, just happened one of his pictures showed the club site.

    Will be apleasure having you guys come along for a visit.

    It is a bit of a pity that we are a fair way down the county, but with the exception of the last couple of miles after leaving the A30 it is a fairly straight forward run.

    As to the Mk4's, remind me closer to the time and I will bring them along :D

    Dale, will there be any food there? Just that I doubt we'll be there much before 11 pm...

    Cheers

    Even if there was food it may cold, and hard to find in the dark.

    Try turn up sooner? :D

    Will do Chris, just was wondering... i'm sure there was nibbles there when i went before though. Just trying to work out the logistics of the 3.5 hour drive and eating and trying to get a shoot in before 11pm :D

    Funny you say that, I was going to the Bfta meeting saturday but as nothing can really be put in stone and i found tuesday REV had a number of small faults, enough to make me wonder how i hit anything sunday, I am hoping to set up at Tondu Am on the way down.

    520 miles

    Long one this one but enjoyed it.

    Forgot my gimp coat, thats my excuse for today.:D
    And my new Bean bag was to full.
    And the air Arms Fleece dont fit
    And i should not have moved the scope wheel AGAIN Tuesday

    Anyway, the Hft course was not what i was expecting, a bit longer than i imagined it would be. However, an interesting 30 shots and very interesting the difference in kneeling ft style and hft style.

    Thanks to Rich for guidence, even though i beat him lol.
    Suspect he will have some daft excuse like his gun had been re-zeroed to 40 yards.
    As it was, that was about right lol.

    Ft. started badly, got it going then finished like a fart :D Missed 4 out of last 5:eek:

    Definatley missed the Gimp coat, probably more than the targets and thats saying something.

    Very interesting to have all those 12.5 ml kills, very nervy shots.
    A 15 ml kill now looks huge lol

    Really liked the 25 ml kills past 35 yards, sensible placing and definatley think 25 ml kills to 40 yards is the way for Gp shoots.
    all in all very good FT course.
    Missed the two long standers but i put that down to the coat.
    Wobbled on three shots, again blame the coat. And my new Bean bag was over full.
    And i was over ranging.

    Well done to Rob and Steve on the 35, good shooting, Title must nearly be Robs now?

    See you at Shebbear?

    Thanks to Cornwall FTC for the shoot.
