Tondu for Rd 8.
shotgun start, 9.30am.
Course not open prior to this
Lanes will be allocated, shooting partners drawn from a bag by score card.
There will be the Golden dragon bonus raffle.
Can't wait for that one then Simon. Sounds mega.
You cannot beat a virgin shoot!
I'm quite partial to one of them not sure about the shoot bit
Ok heads up
I want a birthday cake seems it falls on my 40th - oh and lots of presents too
Didn't you have your 40th ten years ago? Lol
Sounds good, but unfortunately a clash with http://www4.biathlonworld.com/en/events.html/do/showevent?EventId=BT1415SWRLCP08
I will at the stadium roll on Feb all booked up and just waiting for the time to roll by
Well, that's the only way your going to get near a "40" on this particular day lol
You will have to rely on our new Ringer "KFC" for cake making.
note to sell, At briefing, get all to sing Penguin Happy to BDL
Your a "By" Gary, that's explains it. Fancy missing the ruby for that !
Shhh that's a secret
Make that a big cake, it's my birthday too (a wee bit older than Brian though)
Sounds like a good course, as always at Tondu
Big Cake with a Dancing Girl that Bursts out of the Middle??
The cake my or Tosh'es Wife can do, but both are busy on that day when it come to dancing so as ever, I would like to volunteer, Cant promise fll bikini as apposed to Kendra swimsuit but I will try, just hope its not too Cold!
On Chubbys train???
Decided it will take longer than planned to get the New Virgin Course done, so that's now being pushed back to the John Thomas Memorial Shoot on March 29th. (Start of something called Summer time)
Thus, Feb 15th shoot will now see the line start at the Top on the Banks, use part of the top bank practice course and then continue into the Bowl.
We not used the Bowl for a couple of years as last time we had complaints about the anti aircraft shots lol, but only from B/Gwent members, and that's a fact!! how Time change!
anyway, at best 2-3 Anti Aircraft shots off the bag plus a couple of Standers and kneelers that will be partial AA.
The course will then go round the banks at the end of the Zero range and finish back in the woods where 3 lanes will be used.
bit of everything for all, slightly easier disaplines than last time but less Minikills. Angles, dark lanes and even the odd steep low shot?
This is the inprortant bit, Zero range open 8 am till 9.15 only. No Zero range available after 9.15am
Booking in 8 am till 9.15.
briefing 9.15, shoot Start 9.30am.
Taking a falling leaf from the excellent Mfta set up, start lanes (for most) and shooting partners (for all) will be allocated by your score card being drawn out of the bag at the Briefing. This I hope will see wafta shooters get to partner someone other than the usual friend, thus the perfect opportunity to maker new friends
No side shoots on this one, its a quick shoot to get it all over by 1.30pm latest as many of our and other shooters want to be home or in a Pub by 3pm to watch Wales v Scotland in that Rugby thing.
We will be doing the Golden Dragon Aagin, £1 entry, Money split (TBA) between first two cards drawn out.
Golden dragon will be a Gimmie
Hi all, can I have the postcode please....... x
Here you go Sarah directions via their web site below and the farm shop they mention is also below
Mount Pleasant Farm, Farm Road, Cefn Cribwr, Bridgend, Mid Glamorgan CF32 0HA
Thank you, don't know if we r going yet as Dafydd not well. Good luck to all for tomorrow x
Firstly, thanks to the Tondu Members who helped today. I cant recall having so many helpers at a shoot, nice to see the club growing each year.
We have a growing band of members that are keen and friendly, absolutely fantastic to see.
Be even better if we manage to get the course in tomorrow and the Practice course back out on the day!
so what does Tomorrow Hold?
firstly, Top Gate open 8am to 10am.
It will be locked after that so late comers will have to walk down for a key. Sorry, cant do anything about that.
Main Zero range open 8.15 to 9.25am
Reduced capacity Zero range open 9-30 onwards ( between bottom ponds)
Shotgun start (pick your own lane) 9.30am. Lane 1 may be reserved However.
After the battering some of the Wafta shooters % took at Quarry ( winds picked up!) I think most will enjoy what is a fairly easy looking course
It will be won or lost (probably) from lanes 2 - 5 along the top bank, there is not much wind forecast tomorrow but it always catches the pellet along the top banks.
As you descend the banks and go into the Bowl, the ranges drop and hits should be easier!
The bowl is however waterlogged in places, chippings have been out between the (wetter) gates to keep the seat as dry as possible, but Good waterproof footwear is highly recommended.
About 4 Anti Aircraft (WFTF style) shots off the bag in the bowl, could steal a wobbly miss off a shooter or two?
My favourite lane is Lane 17, the dark Lane.
Standers, unfortunately for any Ftp owning shooter from salmons Leap FTC, there are 3 short standers, so that's A.D. on a 37 lol
1 longer stander to test the better shooters, but some angles on the standers to mix it up a bit.
Kneelers, average length but again some angles to make them a bit trickier than normal?.
Golden Dragon is a gimmie so hope you all have a punt at it.
I think AA will be won on 37 - 40, yep I think this course can be cleared given lower winds tomorrow
A grade 32 -37
B Grade 25 - 33
C grade 20 -28
Open grade ! Wafta starts its open Grade class tomorrow, hope to see some having a go at that.
We have managed to put out a slightly wonky Silhouette side shoot. Main thing is they are at correct distances and go down when hit with out bouncing back up!
Well done to A.D. Engineering !
£2 a go, all money will be paid back as prize money. Bfta rules.
For those wanting a bit of warm up or warm down practice, the easy ft and selected lanes on the bottom practice course are open to use.
Hope you Enjoy
