Tondu AR & FTC for Rd 5
As it Looks Like I have to work now, Acid Hands (Gadget) will be putting on His first Shoot for Tondu at this event
Tondu motoway opened!
We have always suffered with a poor (so the car owners tell me ) access road to tondu FTC, but I have to say the work done yesterday and today by Billy the Machine driver is superb, I have never seen our accesss road looking so flat. I think any car will make it up and down to tondu with no problem now.
We will have it re-graded again in March, incase we end up hosting the Bfta Inters weekend and if not, for the John Thomas memorial shoot?
Well done Simon... You'll have it
God damn phone^^^ you'll have a much better turnout now.
I think to keep the road in top condition I will make everyone park in the field up the to and walk down - across the grass.
Keep off me Road lol
digging a drainage ditch would be a good move to prevent it being ruined !
Looks really good Si, can bring my car down there now!
The road looks lovely simon...! but did you say the inter-regionals could be at tondu.....thought it was at castle.....????? needs to be in a more central place of the uk.....if its held at tondu, it would be a low turn out.
Fishface is scared of tondu lol
They could be held here. I put the club forward as an alternative to Newbury.
It matters not where is goes to me personally, but there are some who say Castle is too far north Mark and wont attend?
You have to ask why hold the event if people are not willing to travel. Look how many times for example the scots have had to plod down to Newbury. Yes Tondu may even be further for them, but it could also go to a Nefta club?
However, i am all for it moving round the regions.
So say Tondu does get it this year, it then cant be in Wales in 2015, it has to go to another region, and so on.
Be a bit like the Home internationals was. We may even get a trip to scotland
See how the vote goes At AGM?
Now be honest and tell the truth, tondu is too much a Ft ground for you so thats why you dont want it here, propper wind lol
Scared of the wind.....lol that's funny coming from you simon....didn't see you shooting at this years euros...2nd day was tough..to tough for a newcomer like you You didn't fair to well the last time we shot at sywell either think you got 14x30 as for tondu being to mutch, I don't fear any ground or any conditions I cant see many people wanting to travel to lets face it...an average place to shoot compared to many other clubs we could go to........o
Wow I have most certainly missed all this. I guess now were able to do handbrake turns...
Thats cause you dont shoot anymore o!
The Titanic is still afloat after nearly a week, thinks that longer than the original.
Captain Acid Hands Ahab has this in store for you on lane 5
anyone know where we can get a knockdown "DUCK" target ??
Course will be along the bottom ponds and woods, should not be too hard even if its windy
Yep I got 3 of them
Part Ex Ev2 for Duck
Well your FTP team mate would love one for his new contraption! Do the deal
Hang about Acid hands used to hit a few targets with the Ev2, better part Ex the FTP?.
Might only be worth a duckling though lol
Road looking good Simon,See you on the 23rd.
Its still not too bad really considering all the rain. The other lads with cars are not having any problems.
Nice bright white or yellow paltes for you old timers with tired eyes, or Acid hands come to that?
Plenty or reducers, but not all out at silly ranges and most reducers will be in sheltered lanes. I dont think there will be much wind even with the storms we are having now on most lanes.
Standers not too long, Nice flat shooting positions
kneelers a reasonable length, nice flat shooting positions.
No Anti Aircraft shots, infact majority will be slightly downwards with a few flat- ish ones.
Should be a high scoring round
"No anti aircraft shots" Class.
Good day at tondu, though strange as the trees were upright and we did not have to weigh the zero boards down with boulders the size of cars!
Lots of water has soaked in to the ground so we did some prep work for Sundays shoot in moving the firing line to "as dry" a spot as could be found for the last few lanes.
Nice pair of long kneelers in the penultimate lane, that after a pair of long sitters that may or may not be in the middle of the Swirly Wind come sunday?
Chippings in place to keep your bag as free from mud as we can, with Thanks to EWS shunter for driving the train and Arms dealer for conducting engineering work to level things out for the standers
Arms Dealer has put in an official proterst about this lane due the swear word on the sign.
They are not that long though otherwise only Jack and Berty will hit them lol
Sundays long range forecast is 24mph wind and light rain. Perfect conditions!
Shoot will run no matter what the weather
Main Course is fairly well sheltered so should not be too much off plate shooting.
Some Tricky shots over the pair of bottom ponds, Some Angels and of course the is Acid Hands Titanic Target on the pond! Snappy will be on hand to eat any who fall over board!
Easier in the woods where there are a mix of minis and some long fulls, couple of short standers whch is me knackered lol
Then a couple of testing lanes at the courses end.
I predict heigh scores.
No Vermin Side shoot this time so we have gone for the full 10 reducers in the main.
We are looking to have a side shoot, think it will be the "mini long Range"
Mini kills, but nothing past 55 yards. 3 targets, 3 shots at each, £1 a go, Prizes dependant on entry but at least a £10 for 1st. Confirm that after saturday
Covered Zero range will be in use, its got lots of boards out plus:
the 4 practice standing re-setter targets
the three sets of spinners
the practice plates.
Should be enough for zero check and warm up sesson.
The 20 target (20 or 40 shot) Gp practise course will also be open if you want to warm up before doing the main, or indeed if you want a warm down session post disaster, I mean Main shoot? Free to use.
Road is ok, but as ever just take you time and please shut the top gate. Bottom gate can be left open.
Booking in, zero and Gp practise open 8.30 onwards.
Main course Briefing 9.25am
Main shoot open 9.30 am
