    A big thankyou to MAD - aka Richard, Ian and all the guys and girls for what was a great weekend weather wise and it was obvious that a lot of hard work went into the weekend.

    Also to Charles, Brigette Vante, Pete, Gary and all the UKAHFT crew.

    And to say that it was breezy on Saturday scroll down the UKAHFT facebook page to the video that shows the refreshment tent been taken up by a mini tornado: UKAHFT :eek:

    I can only echo the above, a special thanks to Ian Bainbridge for feeding us and in particular trudging up the hill with a coolbox full of cold drinks, very much appreciated.

    An excellent weekend, the toughest course I have ever shot and I cannot wait to return to MAD.

    I just want to echo what has been said, Richard, Jean and Steve Ed have spent the last two weeks hacking, strimming, cutting and designing this course in 90 degree heat. Well done guys, you have done brilliantly.

    Very well done to the Team at MAD. Dop, Jean, Steve, etc..and the UKAHFT team, Pete, Chilly, Charles, etc..

    Great weekend with 2 very different, but very challenging courses.
    Always a fantastic spirit for the Mad double header, lots of banter and catching up with Shooting friends from around the country.

    Very well done to the winners, and to those who achieved good scores for themselves, in sweltering conditions. Great to see so many smiling faces as people came off the courses, even when they hadn't scores as high as they expected..Mad does that to you.

    Big thanks to my shooting buddies, Elliot and Vince..great company.

    Cheers all.
    Alex

    I think the biggest thanks goes to Richard who devised the courses and just told us minions where to stand, what to do and where to put it!!!! Not to mention single handedly taking in the field on Monday in 35 degrees of heat!!! Not forgetting everyone who stayed behind to help wind in strings - thank you.

    He also weilded the industrial sized strimmer single handed through all the brambles, having decided that it was in dangerous hands after I had managed to snag some barbed wire cutting the path through to the field!!!

    Thanks too to Steve who brought picnics with him, and made sure we had plenty of drinks to keep us going! It was a tad warm!

    Well worth while all the scratches, cuts, grazes. bites and angry ants to see so many of our friends enjoying the weekend. At least we now have a new area to shoot in!!

    Looking forward to seeing you all at Furnace Mill.
