Default Euros today

Just got back from spectating at the Euros - what a fantastic day!

Just wanted to say thank you to all the competitors who made my son and I feel welcome, sharing their time between shooting to talk to a couple of newbies who didn't have the bottle to compete.

Will and I are new to the sport and came up to see how it was done, couldn't believe how welcoming everyone was.
Congrats to Mr Ayres and commiseration's to all the other competitors

Hope to meet some of you on the circuit sometime.

Kind Regards

What can I say that weekend was just perfect, the course setters, fantastic course challenging but possible, the organinsing staff efficient but welcoming, the marshals there when needed with a smile and my fellow competitors always there with an encouraging word and advice. Thankyou to you all, even my reluctant wife thoroughly enjoyed it and was as impressed with the whole event.

We had the priviledge to witness the the shoot off WOW!! I was under pressure just watching those seven Guy's. all deserved to win, thanks to all for a fantastic show. Simon who I was plinking next to on the range that morning calming me down, fantastic mate even JC was genuinely thrilled for you, never seen anyone so pleased to lose.

Particular mention to topgunphil what a round we had, you're well named, one big fellow with a bigger heart.

Thanks to everyone

First off, big shout out to Neil T and all the BFTA crew for putting on a great shoot, all your work is really appreciated and as ever thanks to Shaun for putting the results up so quick, massive respect for you all. Thank You.

I knew I had no chance of winning anything but more practice makes perfect and two days of shooting with great company is pretty hard to refuse. Thanks to Swifty Sue and Lo33a for the company on Saturday and Sunday, well done to you both on getting PB's and a totally pleasure to shoot with. See you both at Castle this Sunday.

First day I managed a personal best but the second day nearly broke me with the switching wind every 10 seconds but learned a few things across both days that will help put me in a good standing for the W/L and getting out of C Grade this season.

We had our own Cup for The C Grade Bandits at Anston, so well done to Blayhum "Supa" Dooper for winning the Aston Missive Cup, I can't wait for Saturday so you can remind us all you shot on 10 mag!

I also learnt that I am never camping again!

Massive thanks to everyone and see you next year.

Well done to Simon for winning and Calps please report Saturday for a clip around the tab.

Thanks very much to Neil and all the crew that worked very hard to put the course out.

Also thanks to Sam, Shaun & all that make the stats, booking in etc happen and run smoothly.

I really think this is a great shoot, it’s also the atmosphere and buzz around the event.

It was good to shoot with my partners over the two days, (Saul, it keeps my mind active while shooting! nice shooting with you mate.)

Congrats again to Simon, well done.
