How long have you chaps known me? - do you really think I'd have done that?
I didn't word it well, but no, I didn't know any of the ranges while the shoot was going on - afterwards I got the actual ranges to the targets I wanted to check I had right. My first target and the longer target down the track on lane 18 particularly. I ranged it at about 52/53 again, my partner ranged it as 55 - he took it down, I missed low at 6 o'clock. But I didn't get the answer on any targets I wanted to check until after I'd finished the course, I just asked to check them.
I was stood at my first lane when I was told it was 51.66 yards though.. but that's because I'd just finished shooting the course and was stood near it when I was chatting about the targets I wanted to check.
The bit "(obviously after I'd shot the lane and moved on)" yeah that did make it sound like I'd shot a lane and a few lanes down got the answer to the distance, but that was badly worded. I asked to check about 3 or 4 targets during the shoot, but didn't get the answers until after I'd finished the course. I wouldn't even ask when I'm on a lane or before one in case a facial expression would give it away.
