Really no need to thank me, we all spent the weekend getting soaked for the good of F.T (and for the good of Shebbear shooters head count) I think encouraging newcomers into F.T is vital because without them we are in a dying sport.
And if we got just two or three people join up, it was worth the effort. It was also great fun meeting so many people that don't know one end of a gun from the other!
End of topic hijack!
