    Easy Ft -

    Not as Easy for most as I hopped, but given this was first attempt lessons learnt.
    Well done to youngster Keenan Phillips on an excellent 25 ex 30. Equally to youngest shooterLeon Wilton for keeping spirits up and completing the course, thanks to Martin Shunter for helping and also well done on your First ft shoot.

    Top day at tondu with only downside another low Wafta turnout!

    Weather was about right though, nice cloud cover, slight breeze early on then a good dollop of wind later (Thats when Little Jack and I shot so thats my excuse lol)


    Only one whistle and I think that due to someone mistaking an easy 27yard target (full kill) Re-set cord for the start of a tug of war Match. No names ;)

    Taken on baord old Man Doz'es comments about a stretched out course, it was yes for 30 shots but we restricted the main to 30 due to the 30 shot Easy Ft course / side shoot.
    Least the Extreme side shoot was popular, be great to see more clubs put on Vermin / extreme side shoots?

    Cracking day at tondu

    Simon and the lads,

    Thanks for a cracking days shooting..
    Was a cracking course, it was a long line but personally I enjoyed it..
    The side shoot was spot on and everyone had a laugh with it..

    I also agree about putting on side shoots. I spoke to John Lewis after the shoot and agreed about putting on a vermin up at nelson from now on..

    Thanks again for a cracking day...

    Agreed, a great course and a big thank you for putting it on.

    Dissapointed that other commitments dictated that I (and thus Chris) had to leave early, i was looking foreword to the side shoot.

    Think it was 13 and 14 (on the pond), by far the best two target placements Ive shot at.
    see you all soon

    Thanks to everyone who helped setup the course and make it happen.

    Looked like A lot of thought went into the layout, Some interesting shots indeed a very enjoyable shoot!.

    Found The top section of the course very punishing "tricky spot of wind up there :eek:o :D "

    Congratulations to all the class leaders :)

    See you all at the next one

    As always Simon the photo,s do justice to a memorable day
    there must be a problem with either the lens or the shutter speed, I look fat in both pictures.
