Hats off to Bill for setting the course on your own, not an easy task!

Well done to Tench for his clear, a few of us were holding our breath when you were taking your last shot

Well done to all the winners, losers and everyone in between.

Thanks to everyone involved from Purley chase club and the DMHS for putting on todays shoot. I really enjoyed shooting my first proper clear today! It was a bit of an anti-climax though, I have strived to clear a course yet it felt easy. I suppose you need to miss a few to make it feel hard so a clear is always going to feel like that.
Gordon shot great too, always a pleasure to shoot with him, it was real shame that he dinked his first target yet came off with 59!
Ian is shooting better at every event too which is a pleasure to watch, and today we identified a weakness in his kit that we can rectify to help him further.
Simon won .22 again so it was a thoroughly enjoyable day all round and well done to all the winners and congrats to James for taking the top spot,,again!
HFT, for people with only 2 buttucks!

VooDoo TwoTwo The next chapter.

Well done to Tench on his 1st 'Genuine' 60 clear round, was a pleasure to shoot with you and Gordon and watch it happen.
Shame that 1st 20mm caught you out Gordon or there would have been 4 in the shoot off...

Thanks to All at Purley Chase for the course, all involved in the organisation of the DMHS and special thanks to Burger Man for turning out to feed and water us all after what must have been a MEGA night on the lash!!!!
Fantastic shooting with Ian and Simon both Genuine guys and a credit to HFT and it was a pleasure to have went round yet another course where one of my shooting partners has cleared it WELL DONE, as I was shooting with Nick Hopkinson last year when he cleared Cosford
Well done to the three 100% Simon, James & Dave
1st time at Purley chase and what a lovely venue for HFT well worth coming down from Edinburgh to shoot

Cracking day at Purley Chase, well done to Big Bill for putting the course out on his own, the other PC members should hang there heads in shame for not assisting him, I know PC is predominantly a FT club, however I am sure you will be happy for the 320 that Bill has put into the coffers for you from yesterday's competition.
Well done to everyone that took home a medal or raffle prize.
Neil Tatton wasn't there to collect his third place medal in the Vets.
Neil it will be waiting for you at Chesterfield in December.

Thanks to Greg and the team for a most enjoyable day shooting, and to Bill for setting out the course on your own! And also to Simon Harrison - great shooting with you - you make range finding look easy!

Congratulations to all the winners - especially Simon Howarth on shooting his first clear round and David Nichols for a magnificent PB and taking home a trophy! Great to watch the Rivi boys in a shoot-off as well - always cool as cucumber!

Looking forward to the next round at Chesterfield...
