Really big well done to John the bank though on his 36, and my good freind Gary with 31 was impossible to keep ip with, great shoot!

1st comp today, couldn't have enjoyed it anymore than I did. Score of 21 on my first outing was ok, but I think there is plenty left in the tank. Thanks to all the organisers and people who set up a great shoot and thanks to Simon for the tips going around.

Looking forward to the next shoot

Thanks to everyone at Castleton for a great course layout yesterday. Some tricky targets in the shade after the bright sun and heat haze off the white targets. Really enjoyed the course layout.
