The Troops Trophy competition is a new team comp that kicks off at Forts Mouldsworth site on the 21st November 2010. This will be the first of 4 legs. All the proceeds are going to fill Morale parcels that will be sent to British forces now on operational tours of Afghanistan. We will have a team present from the 1st Battalion Royal Welch Fusiliers who came home from Afghan in June this year who received a few tons of Morale parcels Christmas gone and also hopefully our own Kieran Turner on leave at that time from his present tour who as also just received a load of parcels and has already posted on the AirgunBBS to say of the morale boost these parcels give our troops. Kieran will be accompanied by his brother Jay Turner.
Although a team competition it will be open to individual HFTers who would like to take part also thus helping us fill more parcels. There will be hot food and drinks plus carparking on site and our caterer is very good. Nige Gillieman will post directions and a post code for sat nav users in below for those who need directions.
As said all proceeds from these comps will go to fill more parcels to sent to operational units on tour in Afghanistan at present. And any BBS members on here will know how important our troops rate these Morale Parcels by the many thankyou letters that myself and Clifftop have posted on the AirgunBBS and our own Fort Forums over the past few years. I think everyone will agree that our serving soldiers do not need charity but to know that we back home in the UK care enough to go to these lengths gives our fighting soldiers as much of a morale boost as the goodies in our parcels.
The four legs of the comp are listed below
21st November Fort
16th January Rivington 2011
13th February Tawd Vale 2011
13th March Oldham 2011
Can any people interested in attending please post below so we have some idea how many shooters to cater for. This will give Fort a heads up on what to expect on the day.
The course should prove excellent as we are lucky enough to have Tawd Vales Geoff Watkinson and Dave Benyon helping us set the course out surely the best course setting team in the country today. So hopefully a hard but fun HFT course is a certainty.
May I thank our very own Andrew Compton for buying this beautiful Bronze Trophy.
