Cracking weekend, what with Mile Oak yesterday and Buxted today.
Excellent course made even better by the wind!
Well done to all the winners, top shooting!
As Rammy said, great meal and company at the White Hart, was a good crack.
Well done to the caterers, very good portions I thought.
Lastly thanks to Jean for the lift

Thanks for the day Buxted, I could not read that wind in the wood today. I was also caught out by your large faceplate and other range traps. Well thought out guys. The 475 miles driving was testing enough. I will stay over the night before next time.

Thanks for the day.

Default Brilliant!

Thanks to all involved with setting up a brilliant course. Thanks too to whoever organised the wind!

It was indeed the course of the year, in my somewhat inexperienced view!

Finally, Mr David Nichols. You are a gentleman to shoot with, great company. Congratulations on your PB today. Hope the grin lasts a good while!

Hope you all got home safe, thanks to all who ventured so far south of the river to play today and for your positive comments.

Big thanks go to the Busted(spelt correctly) few who worked tirelessly over the last few days to build and take down the course and its entrapments.

Peg 13 was 25yds.

Again thanks for attending.

What a great course and fun weekend to end the season! 400 mile round trip for me but I would do it all again. Had a great time shooting with Helen and Nigel. A few more points would have been nice, I am clearly not as clever as the course setters are devious! Very well done Buxted!

I was sad to see fellow Kibby shooter Theresa shoot an outright win in the ladies only to find herself in a shoot off which she didn't win because of a pulled target. We all smile when we benefit from pulled targets so equally have to accept being on the other side of it occasionally, But great shooting, well done!
HFT, for people with only 2 buttucks!
