Default Worlds 2012

Well done to all involved in organizing a brilliant weekend, two top courses with an evil wind that would not make it's mind up made it a real challenge.
I doubt I will be here next year 2013. Although if South Africa start sending out a team I will be back in a few years flying the South African flag, if they will have me

Default Worlds 2012

It was a brilliant weekend and thanks for all your hard work, Pete and Jane, for organising it all and to all who helped make it the success it was.
The courses were challenging to say the least, and the company and banter up to the usual standards!!!!
Would also like to thank Gary for the lift and Alex for keeping us company so he could chat to Gary and I could snooze in the back of the car!!!!!
Roll on 2013.

A massive thank you to Pete and Jane aswell as the huge amount of others that are needed to help set up and run a fantastic competition for the weekend.

I really appreciate the effort others put in so I can come and shoot and enjoy myself with like minded people and as always the banter was terrific.

The weather was the usual scottish 4 seasons in 15 minutes sort of stuff.

Looking forward to seeing you all at Emley!

Big thanks to all involved with the worlds this year. I think this years have been the best yet, two good shootable courses, everyone seemed to be having a good time even when the conditions weren't great. Well done to all the winners and thanks to Steve for the company on the courses over the two days, cheers Dave.

Thanks to all involved. Until you're in the thick of it you just don't realise how much time people give to make sure things run smoothly (mostly)

Many thanks to Lurch for a great weekends shooting and it's true that you only really get to know someone whilst shooting and chatting. It's the first time i had shot round with him and have to admit that he's good company.

Go on the lurch.....welll shot this weekend mate. Pity i threw away the lead in the woods

Smile Many thanks from Holland

Dear fellow air-shooters,

I would like to thank everybody -specially the organization- for the super event of last weekend.
Also a special thank to my fellow shooters Chris and Steve, both in recoil class .177 and .22.
I had a lot of fun and enjoyed it very much.
Every time it's a learning experience.
The weather was not as bad the forecast told us it should be.
Only Saturday in the afternoon we had showers of rain, with quit a lot of wind on the lake.

Hopefully we will be competing the WHFTA again next year.
Again, thanks a lot!

I also shoot some pictures instead of .177 pellets.

Best regards from Holland,

Big Thank You To Every One For A Great Weekend

Got to say it was fantastic for some reason the woods kicked me to death Sunday. Can't wait to do it all over again roll on 2013.

Thanks Pete Jane and everyone else involved doubt it could be done any better.

Rick Ardern super low mounts ISP MK3 pellet launching platforms and Sightron 10 x 42mm telescopic sights.
Because it is not about how, but how many.
