What a bloody good day A big thanks to all of the guys and gals who helped to put on the shoot today. It was great fun (I think!!) despite shooting like a complete *^^&^$&()**

Well done to everyone one a great turnout, and huge respect to all who put in a decent score

Note to self: Must sort out aim points before shooting gun in a comp

Default beautiful day

What a fantassssstic day. I must have to borrow a gun for next year. I really enjoyed my first springer comp however I would like say I hopefully will not go flying on the greyhound pub car park the day before and have to have some kind young gent to load a few of my shots for me. So a big thank you to the father and son ( they know who they are) who took a drive up from Telford for also their first ever shoot . well done to both of you. I think it was so fitting that the sun was out all day today such a special day

Fantastic turnout, hats off to all the long distance travellers. Well done Bri and all the others who put good scores in. Respect to Paul's family. Brilliant do all round.
I would like to agree with you but then we'd both be wrong....

What a fantastic day. Thanks to Chris Cundy for one of the funniest rounds of shooting I have had in years and to everyone who turned up and made it such a great day.

Well done to Bri - top shooting on a course that broke most of us.

Thanks to Anston for hosting - roll on next year

What an excellent day - the weather was lovely, the course was brilliant and the company and atmosphere was out of this world.

Plenty of swearing and laughing going on today, and I could just picture Ninja looking down on us all and p'ing himself laughing when lots of experienced PCP shooters picked up a boinger and realised that it's not quite as easy as it looks.

It was lovely to see Paul's family today too and what a fantastic total we all raised for charity!

Well done to everyone today - you did the sport proud
