    Not long got in from a great weekend away at Basingstoke and Bisley, well done to both clubs for hosting these rounds and for the hard work put in to keep us happy.
    Well done to all the clearers on sat with a excellent score of 60 and to the winners today for doing the business on a great course with some evil wind demons playing tricks.
    Cheers to Jane and Burt for keeping me amused going round the course and lifting my spirits even while we missed loads of targets
    The two nights at the pub were a real crack with two birthday cakes coming out for Dave and Sparky even though Vinny ended up wearing most of one of them.
    Well done again to all that made it such a good weekend and look forward to the next one.
    Must also say thanks to Pete Dutton for our rematch on the pistols, and it proved that Sparky really is bad with a pistol.:D

    Well done to all those that shot at Bas and Bis this weekend, although unable to shoot still had a great weekend the banter on and off the courses made the trip worthwhile. Congrats to fellow Tawd members Dave R and Woki for cracking shooting over the weekend. Funniest time for me was at the end of the 1st session at Bis when Dave Welham showed his sorrow at friend and fellow competitor Mark C missing his last target. Look forward to seeing you all at Anston, although probably still in high vis jacket, cheers Dave.

    Just got back home after a 250 mile journey (knackered).

    Thanks to all involved at Bis & Bas for a great 2 days shooting. The weather stayed fine & the slight breeze we had at Bisley today made for an interesting shoot.

    Great to see some old faces & some new ones. Good day at Bas with Ryan & Steve and today with Mick & Young George who shot excellent for a youngster ( one for us all to keep our eyes on in the future).

    Looking forward to the next ay Anston. :shot:

    Thanks from all of us who attended from Buxted & making us feel very welcome.
    We have links with some of the BFTO guys and you'll be seeing a lot more of us at these events.
    Some of us shone and for some, the wheels well and truly fell off.
    A great event, great organisation and a blinding weekend.

    :D

    My thanks to those in both clubs who put in the effort to make both days successful. I didn't shoot well but thoroughly enjoyed myself. Must get in some practice and find my long-range aim-points before Quarry....

    It was also very good to see Chris Coombes finally getting to grips with .177 and getting a well-deserved third place at Bisley.

    Got back home at 12.45 last night after calling back at my cousins at Reading and was knackered but happy that we'd had a fantastic weekend that made the long journey well worth while.
    Thanks to both clubs for all the hard work that must have gone into that.
    Great to see you all again......roll on next month ;)
