I watched Calps' last 6 or so lanes, knowing he was on 2 and needing to clear them all to win the series.
Knocking over those 12 targets was more than just about range finding and pointing the gun in the right place. It took bottle and a will to win that you wouldn't think a bloke who'd been shooting for a hundred years would still have.
Shame for Berty cos he deserved a series win after such good shooting, but fair play Calps, that took some stones.

Well done Andy... A legend of the times and a true gent.
Andy was in the group behind me which was waiting for me to finish shooting before they could. It was really encouraging to here him say well done Dave if I hit something. Praise from the top man....spurred me on to get my best score in a GP
Thanks Andy and congratulations again. Looking forward to seeing you do it again at the Euros.
