Default Furnace Mill Extreme Results 29/12/15

Furnace Mill Extreme Results 29/12/15

I hope that everyone enjoyed today as much as I did, what a fantastic day shared with great company. Thank you to everyone that turned up, you guys and gals really made it. Jane and I felt like part of a big family.
I know that Jane enjoyed shooting with Kathy and Rhian. Thank you for putting up with me Tony, I really enjoyed shooting with you.

Well what can I say to the UKAHFT guys? What a fantastic sport you have invented, thank you for sharing it with us all. You are true ambassadors to HFT. Long may it continue.

A massive thanks to Pete Sparks for supplying the trophies, suggesting and helping to run this event. I mean that from the bottom of my heart. We have always wanted to run an extreme shoot here at Furnace Mill. We hope that it can become an annual event.

Thank you to Mikmon for helping me set the course, and the lads that stayed on after the Rose Bowl to put some of the strings on.

Well done to everyone for scoring so well, especially Pete Dutton with his top score of 67, Colin Wilson 62 and Derick Stone 60.

First off well done Pete. very good shooting & nice to chat to you in-between lanes \ pegs.
It was a cracking day all round with some great banter & some very good shooting. some of the targets were magic to shoot down & even the ones that I missed too !
the long range ones over water with a tad of wind were even nice to have a go at, plus I got a few of them so I was made up.
however I have to say a big thank to all the folks who set it up. & for making it so much fun at the same time. please lets do this style again asap.......

cheers for the food & see you soon, kenny
My rifles are =
PCP: Steyr lg110 hft. AA hft 500 ( back up & rainy day rifle )
Springer's: HW77 ( 1980's version ). HW35 KLS ltd ed.

A great end to the year at the mill, good to see so many turn out and travel so far to make the comp the fun it was! great shooting Pete with your 67 and id like to thank my shooting partner for the day the other Pete great banter and very unlike on some shots today that tricky wind thanks to Jane and Lois for breakfast and as always thanks to Ed for all his hard work on the course i may help out setting up but Ed is the work machine that plods on day after day, anyone that set courses knows how much is involved.

last but not least thanks to Bill and the lads always there to help out, and lend me 20 quid in todays case

Thanks to Ed, Jane and the Furnace Mill lads for laying on a great event today, throughly enjoyed shooting with you also Ed.

The wind and shooting over water made for a real challenge and makes petes top score even more impressive.
