It was absolutely fun event, perfect weather and very friendly great team!
I liked the special "effects" from organisators like targets hiding in the bushes,
downhill inclined shots and shooting through high grass on target hiding in shades which made me mad :twisted:
Thank you John and Denis for this well organised event and all your effort to make it happen!!

First off, thanks to everyone for coming out to the match and helping out with the setup and tear down. Much appreciated!

We shot a 10 lane, 30 target, 60 shot course. Lanes 1 and 2, our kneeling and standing lanes, were shot in the roughage off the rwy, lanes 3-9 on the rwy and lane 10 on the grassy knoll.
Weather started off on the cool side but quickly warmed up as the match progressed. Whatever wind there was from behind us and didn't seem to give anyone too much grief.

Ryan brought out his FX Impact in preparation for the upcoming Fudd match and shot solo in the Hunter division. While he says he struggled with ranging, he still managed to X 23 of his first 24 shots and went on to post a respectable 107/120.

Eldor brought out his newly acquired AA S400 MPR FT and jumped into WFTF with both feet. His shooting partner Vitaly, cleared the most lanes with 4 and went on to shoot a 45/60 to take the springer WFTF division.

With the cloudless day, John Birch picked a bad day to forget his hat but still shot a 47/60 to lead the PCP WFTF division.

Good to see John (Newlife) back who shot an 89/120 taking the springer hunter division.

Good times.

Here are the results.

Springer WFTF

Vitaly 45
Frank 26

Springer Hunter

John 89
Eric 80
Duncan 66

Springer Hunter sub 500

Stacey 54

PCP WFTF

John Birch 47
John Bradley 46
Eldor 35
Denis 35

PCP Hunter

Ryan 107

Hoping to set up additional shoots, maybe one each in October and November, weather permitting.

John, this was only my second ever FT competition, but I must say this is the way to run one! Not only were the lanes ready (and good) but the organization was superb. And wow, you've even posted the scores... less than a day after the event!! Kudos to you guys for a great event!

I sure hope you'll do this again (soon).

Cheers!
