    Initial plan

    30 shot main. Wont be a tough one. 20 targetsd all should hit, 10 good ones?

    probably Cash for 1st to 3rd, but may put on top "Non A class" shooter trophy?

    extreme 10 shot side shoot. £1 entry - £20 for winner
    1 point for sitting, 2 kneeling, 3 standing

    12 -15 + target Vermin side shoot. £1 entry - £20 for winner

    so, if you win the raffle, side shoots and your class you could be aroubnf £50 better off for Chrissmax!!!

    Northern soul

    It would be great to see some invaders from across the borders at this, going for a northern Softy approach on the main in that for a change, it will be all 40 -45 ml kills, though snappy 925ml0 may slip into the pond if the water is the right height.

    Also hope to see a good number of Wafta shooters for a full days shooting.


    there will be a :

    30 shot "Northern" main course out, set out over the top pons and finishing down by the Stats (container)
    By Northern, as a change i am planning the main course to be all full size (40 -45 ml0 kills with no reducers. Though we may slip snappy in if the pond water lever is right height?

    Think its £6 entry, cash prizes for 1-3 C, B, A.(AA shot in a in wafta !!)

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    zero range -car park into Bowl. (free entry!)

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Extreme 10 shot.

    1 point for hitting target sitting, 2 for kneeling, 3 for standing.

    £1 entry, £20 first prize

    target will not be that far out, around 35 -45 yards depending on wind.

    Makes standing more tempting??
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Italian Mini Main.

    Inspired by our recent raid to italy, the "vermin" will have an italian feel it it this winter.

    blue targets and lots of mini kills,
    15mm, 25mm 30mm.
    If i have enough targets and i think i do, it will be all mini kills.
    If it is all mini, no wire / obsticles in front of kills.
    There will compulsary standers and kneelers too, but no Anti Aircraft high shots as in italy !!

    £1 entry, around 20 shot. £20 first prize.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Also lookig to borrow a set of sillouettes. These might come from Mike or Nelson.

    something we dont usually put out but of interest to some

    £1 entry, £10 first prize
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    Be great to see some Englanders come down for a day out, all being well.

    suppose if there were enough interest there could be a sporting class. Spring class come to that.

    you more than welcome to use whatever you want. Be good to see you again.

    wonder if that oldTom Morgans will venture down. i would use my Njr rig to whoop him, just like in the good old days lol

    No Doz, i proposed at 2009 AGM that winter shoots (only) could be 30 shot due to the colder weather.

    we did not bother last year as it was a nice day but as we go to the extra effort of putting side shoots on, cutting down the main makes it a bit easier to put out / bring in.

    The road leading down to Tondus ground has had a couple of days of repair work on it.
    Its now alot flatter than it was and thus low profile cars have a better chance of making it up and down in one peice.

    no guarentee on that though, especially if Bob is driving!

    Its still muddy in a couple of places so take you time coming dowm, especially as you reach the sweeping right hand bend by the cow feeder.

    We managed to get several tons of cow **** pushed into the woods so now instead of 10 inches of **** to drive through, you can either take the new short cut which only has a pat or two, or if you want the off road look its about 2 inches of **** at worse. Least until the cows have a curry on the weekend?

    Drainage has been put in so hopefully the ice problems on the road will be a thing of the past.

    all in all, Hopefully this will be the start of a bright future for tondu.

    dont think we will have sillys now.

    I think the mini main and extreme 10 shot will be enough with the main.

    Main course runs from the shotgunners containers along the top ponds then down the bank, finishing at our container.
    Its more than likley some of these lanes will be in the 2012 Wafta Gp course, so good Gp practice:).

    I would say at least 10 of the 15 lanes may be in some good wind, but no 15ml and at worst only one 25 ml (snappy).

    If the forecast is silly wind, i will shorten some of the targets on the saturday.

    i think from memory there were 5 long ones, 10 average and about 8 close ones on plan A.

    would hope

    A to be won with between 25 -30

    b to be won with between 20 -25

    C to be wone with 15 -20

    30 shot course:)
