    I think it goes without saying that the two courses at this years World Championships at Kelmarsh were the best ever.

    So with this in mind and considering the vast majority of us were torn a new one, what do you think we should do to the course setters?

    I think they should be scolded and go to bed without Tea, as i noticed some of you made it into the 50's..!

    Just not good enough, smoke and Mirrors next time and more Elves with pellet catchers, hard to find nowadays though!??..

    But Burn Simmo just cos i don't like him..

    :D:D:cool:

    I quite enjoyed Bravo course, it was Alpha that messed my head up big time! 2 brilliant set courses, and i think they will struggle to set harder next year! Looking forward to it already!

    Invite them back next year, maybe get them to cast an eye over the other course too, they may be able to add a little something extra ;):D

    They're not eagles, they're Red Kites.;)

    Every year someone says they're the best courses yet, maybe we have poor memories.

    Yellow sh1tes more like!:eek:o

    Not sure what they were, but they could be bu99ers to range! Great idea introducing new targets, like the leaping salmon on Bravo.

    Seriously, whoever set up these courses should be proud of themselves. Absolutely brilliant. :)

    I thought each course was as good as each other. Both were very strong, esp considering Kelmarsh is a flat bit of ground with a bit of (mostly open) woodland. I also think if there had been significantly more wind in Alpha on Sunday the tearing might have been wider and deeper ;)

    Perhaps to back up what Gary is saying, there is a 2 point difference in average score in Open, on Day 1 and Day 2, from those who shot at least 102 (94 shooters). This isn't quite scores on Alpha versus Bravo for all sorts of reasons (Pete D would have access to that data), but it's something to consider. It could just be the wind though :D

    A lot of people gave up there own time to put out what I thought where to very well thought out courses and it is a bit unfair to try to judge one as being better than the other.
    From what I heard bravo was taking more wind on Monday than Alpha.
    I heard on Sunday there where 2 58s that came of Alpha and 4 58s from Bravo,
    maybe that was because the better shooters shot Bravo on Sunday who can say.
    Gary maybe next year you will give up a weeks holiday to show us how to do it;)

    Just my opinion, but for me ( a very average shooter) it was the wind that made the difference.
    Scored 54 Sunday morning on bravo , I missed 3 positionals and three on range.
    Scored 49 Monday afternoon on alpha with two donuts. Two excellent courses and all the course setters should be proud of the hard work they put in.
