will also have a spare ti of d36 and the sizers with me though lol

Bob up and down turned u with d36 too, except these were 2012 batch not my 2011.
They were good, but not as good as 2011 d36!

Got in a bit of a muddle with the Side wheel marking then as i may have mixed up setting for sub 20m.

So, as it was a nice over cast evening and no wind i re-did the side wheel markings. Nearly cooked myself by the end of it but hopefully it will all fall into place sunday?

As i have the Bfta chrono that will be in use Sunday decided to chrono check. Gun seems to be running high on some Bfta chrono / shoots but have now come to the conclusion the bfta chrono reads high?
It was showing 795 on Bfta and 782 on our club chrono. I have compared the club chrono with one of the bfta chrono and there was only a couple of feet between them then, so presume it was the other bfta chrono?

As such, turned the REV down to 788 on Bfta, but i would not be surprised if some had yellow cards or worse sunday?
Well on my chrono both my ev2s run between 778-782, and i wont be changing them, it would be nice to see a bfta chrono that actually works properly for once, although i wont hold my breath, Its not happened yet in the 9 years ive shot bfta events, It might be time for a new chrono, we could all chip in and buy them one.
