    I'd like to say a big well done to my shooting partner for today Chris Keyworth for his first Welsh series shoot win.
    27/40 yes 27/40 won him the shoot.
    I must say tho what a nightmare of a shoot I think I missed my last 8 shots :eek:o

    Very light breeze...

    I'm sure you lads would agree that today at quarry was tricky with such a little breeze... Haha.

    It's been a good few years since I've shot in wind conditions like that..

    Chris K shot well... Top shooting bud..

    Nothing like a bit of lottery shooting eh...

    Its always a real bad wind up quarry but I have NEVER shot in conditions that bad and don't want to do it again...
    I did manage 4 in a row on the top part of the course though which was MEGA.

    Had a good time today at Quarry, just like to thank me old mate Berty Bassett for his company around the course.
    Thanks to the lads for setting the course.

    Reading about this reminds me of the first Winter League FT shoot I put out in 1994.

    We put the course out on the Saturday and on checking the forecast brought in some of the 45+yd targets. It was only a 30 shot course. Dave Welham walked the course and at the captains meeting wanted some of the targets moved out as they were to close.

    The decision was made to leave them as we told them we set the course for the conditions. A club mate shot round with him and on the lane he started on the 1st target was 9yd 40mm. Wind was right to left and strong so Dave gave it right hand side of kill to see the pellet miss 1/2" left of kill.

    Top score of the day was 12, only 3 got into double figures :eek: there were quite a few dejected faces when giving 12" of plate on a 45ydish target to see it still miss the target to the left.

    Dave came over at the end and apologised for wanting to move the targets out. The top score could have been in single figures if they had.

    curse of quarry

    thought I could shake off the 30 year curse of the quarry, at one stage I was hitting 50/50 and thought I was doing well, we got on the top part and everything went pear shaped and even managed to fall *** over tip, ended up with 14 and the curse continues

    You can count on Quarry if you want a challenge, but that was the windiest I have seen so far!

    Great fun though, the two kneelers in the field were "interesting" you had almost no chance of stabilising as the wind blew you off into the field, the young lad shooting HFT hit both however, great shooting in those conditions when your that light!

    Great fun and if it's windy like that again we can have a whip round for a gag ball for Dave!

    Mike.
