I think a top score of 12/30 proved the point especially as most never even got into double figures. Never seen so many people glad to just hit the face plates at 35yds. After the shoot a few had a go at a 45yd target and got an average windage of 10" to get near the kill zone and that was after the wind had died down a little.
Sounds like Harriers on any given WL season, also the MFTA GP at Millride in 2009 (I think), with the added fun of a monsoon too!
