    Yes, excellent shooting Rob. Thanks to you and Des for the company.

    Now, surely someone who 50% of their misses are due to forgetting to dial the March, has to be an Aardvark contender??

    Cheers guys, and really well done to the team. :D

    Some cracking scores there and the leader table looks well interesting, some consistent results coming from some new (and old) faces...

    I know, there were some real monsters in the field... some superb shooting all around.

    Marc Fisher is so strong, dropping just 8 so far, the top 10 is full of people who have missed less than 12 so far...! That pep talk from Ian must have done Neil Hague the world of good with his 46 in A, and Rachel's 40 in B is stunning. It was only a couple of months ago she was shaking like a leaf, her first time on the clock in the regional showdown... mind you, the rest of B aren't hanging around either, and then there's Matthew Cook blowing the doors off C with 37! Nick's 42 left everyone in his wake as usual. Seems you have to shoot out of your skin to stay alive in any grade!

    Yeh, seems to do the trick... i gave it a clatter getting off lane 25 as well, but kept quiet about that.

    I remember my first ever win outside the club, Sarah Woodhead stepped on my pellet pouch lane one... 38/40... that's when i started to think about sizing :D

    So are you putting that forward as an Aadrvark moment then :rolleyes: ?

    Never had a GP win but I do remember my first Open win which even now still has pride of place. Nomads wooded ground just outside Petersfield/Liss. Was very relaxed as did not drive that day shot a 47 and the next score down was a 44. (whistfully dreams of doing that again ;) :p )

    I think perhaps not dialing for the kneeler might hold better weight :rolleyes: The fact that i guessed the range, then confirmed it, made it doubly worse... 40 yds? yep 40 yds. Loaded? yep. Wind? Good. Position, Good? Green light go? Sent. That branch 5 yds behind in central of the kill, neatly lopped...:rolleyes:

    I always remember my firsts with a smile, and i wish i could pull them out of the hat again as well... how many times do i wish i could have repeated my first 38/40 win at newbury since...:rolleyes::D
