    Well its not a month since the last big shoot ( the euros ) and i'm board already so my question is
    1. what dates and loctions are your regions winter shoots and can any bfta member come and shoot
    2. what days are your clubs practice days
    3. as myself and most of nelson ftc are shift workers if there is invites we may have midweek road trips to your club ( if invited )

    Doz - NEFTA and MFTA have around 21 W/L shoots between them - you would be hard pushed to pick a Sunday between now and March that doesn't have one ;)

    All details in the calendar on here.

    If NEFTA is too far then the midlands has a thriving HFT shoot over the winter around their FT shoots.

    There's a monster OPEN HFT event on at Dartmoor on the 24th in parallel with the SWEFTA showdown. I hear there are venue prizes so can win a prize even if you don't score well. Sounds ideal......:)

    Before you get too fired up, best check with Gus as I think it will be to SWEFTA hunter rules, which differ a little (well a lot) from UKAHFT rules.

    Winter shoots

    Well Doz,

    I got a fair bit of time off at the mo fella, so lets go driving to some shoots eh fella???

    Im sure we could pull together a motley crue of Nelson lads and a few from as far a field as Tondu to do some.

    Sounds like a plan fella....

    Chris,

    I will be in touch over the next week or so and get a load of us down to shoot the course. I got a feeling quite a few will come down for a day out on that course. I want to kick the **** out of it now my gun is sorted, just a shame it wasnt well when I shot the GP there eh haahaaa....

    Berty, if too many of your lads come, I will have to come along with some of my crew to even it out and we'll have an unofficial WAFTA SWEFTA. This time with me in the team (cos I didn't shoot last Sunday) you'll all be struggling........:D:D

    Easy tiger

    I did see you there Rich, but suprisingly you were constantly talking to people haahaaa.

    Im hoping thaat by the time we come down (I will sort that with Chris), I will bring down my new set up. I got a funny feeling Chris will want a look at that then. It would be good to shoot the GP course again, I enjoyed it last time, just a shame my ev2 wasnt shooting well on the day.

    Hopefully we would get enough down to have a day of it. Make sure there is plenty of tea to go around mind, We might bring our tea trolley dolley Darren. He will keep us all hydrated for the day. Plus if we take little Jack, darren likes to serve him? Cant see why though haahaahaa....
