Awesome finish to a fantastic GP series.. It came right down to the wire for pretty much every class and a really testing course to battle it out on at Anston.

Some stunning raffle prizes at the end too - so well done and thanks to all the sponsors too.

Default Thanks

Top class course with great use of angles. Well done Calps for the win its about time buddy. Well done to all the grade winners. I must say I've enjoyed the ups and down shooting in spring class this year and will continue to do so for the rest of this season and WL. Well done Brian Samson for the Win overall, and Steve Privett for a superb 42 yesterday. See you ate Masters and Showdown.

Thanks to all at Anston for a cracking day - superb course and quality food / ice cream

Only one suggestion for next time - buy some better whistles

I think this was the best course I have ever shot at Anston, the line of fire was very interesting and used parts of the ground I have never been into before. Great use of height and angles, which made for a very memorable day.

Well done to all the prize winners, to andy for taking the title and also to Steve for nailing it on the last shoot in A grade, well done mate.

Here's to a good weekend at Newbury.


Cheers Chris it has been a great series,the new grading seems to have worked a treat as the competition for the top places has swapped and changed through out the series.
Just can't believe all the controversy of the 1st Gp at Millride was so long ago it seems like only yesterday.
Finally like to add my thanks to all that have worked so hard throughout the year so we could enjoy our shooting

Thanks to all for the congratulations ( much appreciated )
Well done to all the winners & to those that turn up week in week out & being 99% sure that theyre not gonna be taking home any silverware but just enjoy being in the company of like minded folk & enjoying their day out as much as anyone .
Thanks to all the course setters / club organisers throughout the year.
Also well done to all the bfta officials that get criticism from all angles ( usually from those that just take & put nothing back into the sport ) Anyway a personal thanks from me .
Atb , calps .

Well done Calps (bout bloody time though)

Well done Brian (a springer with standard innards too - doesn't say much for us lot that spend hours making bits of metal shorter/lighter/thinner )

Lovely day all round
I would like to agree with you but then we'd both be wrong....
