    It's going to be a bundle of fun at Sywell this Sunday, if the present windy weather persists.
    It's blowing pheasants out of the roosting trees; and the rabbits ears are like socks on a washing line. :rolleyes:
    The birds in the air, flying with the wind, are traveling like Harrier jets: the ones flying into the wind are hovering like helicopters. Either that, or there are an unusually large number of kestrels about today.
    I thought that the grass had been mown, but upon closer inspection, it appears that it has been stripped, at soil level, by the wind.

    If you belong to MFTA and you believe in anything at all, you had best get on your knees and plead for some moderation, from Whoever is stirring the elements. :D :D :D
    Or for Neil & Phil to set the course out where there is some shelter. (though I'm don't know where that would be, at Sywell) :eek:o ;)

    If it's like this on Sunday, I will be taking the camera and leaving the gun at home. I don't need another abysmally low score. :rolleyes: :eek:

    You've got to be joking Justin.
    I hung some washing out on the line this morning. It was dry before I got back into the house. :eek:

    There you go Jack - you have come up with a new windicator.
    Wet your pants, hang up and if they are dry by the time you have ranged the target you know the wind is N kills. If still damp, N is smaller.

    I foresee an entire new thread on windicator rules and public decency :)

    You never figure out how much wind to give until you have a go in wind.

    It will be interesting to see how long Rob lets that one run for :D

    I originate from bike racing (a la Tom Simpson)
    And there are some races, where you know you are going to be utterly out of your depth. And you do NOT enter !! :eek: :)

    I am driving three hours for a no points to gain reason for shooting as its out of my region mate.

    But this sport is great and if you re going to get beat up by a course it may as well be Sywell, it has a reputation of it! :)

    This will be my first MFTA or BFTA comp, I feel I may get my A handed to me, but no expectations so should be interesting.

    It will be great to have you with us Justin.
    Just be sure to splatter Gilly, Marc & Simon. :p It'll be OK if Ozzy or Mr P beat you. ;)

    I've had a chat with the Weather Fairy, and she's promised that all will be well on Sunday. :D
    (what a dreamer :rolleyes:)

    I'm going to try Neil's idea, and hang a pair of boxers on the flagpole, instead of the customary red flag.

    Thanks very much Jack. :)

    Crumbs, I am not sure about splattering those guys they seem to be on top form this W/L season looking at the results!

    To Concentrate the Mind

    I'm sure that you are all aware that there is a prodigious debate raging in the Hunter/Field/Paper Target Chat forum, which at the moment extends to 36 pages long. (about a kneeling position, for goodness sake) :eek: :eek:o :eek:
    Well, to comply with the spirit of this nonsense, the decision has been made, by The Committee, that if the wind drops below Gale Force 7 on Sunday, the following rules will apply :-
    1. Scores for kneelers will be accepted by shooters adopting only two (2) points of contact with the ground. (bags/cushions/mats/rolls or any other form of comfort or aid will not be permitted)
    2. The upright discipline will be shot standing up, in a hammock.

    Anyone failing to comply with this requirement will have their score nullified and be given a score equal to the MFTA Winter League Lowest Possible Score (4)

    Does that mean that you will get at least 4 Jack. Don't worry about the wind we are used to it at sywell. The weather forecast says it will be sunny and 10 degrees. Expect someone will have their shorts on ?.

    I'm making no promises about my score. :D
    If it turns out as you say the weather forecast is predicting, that will be great.
    See you there Chris
