Thank you to all who took part today and all who helped make today a great one.
I meant what I said this afternoon during the prize giving it was a pleasure to have you all here today and we hope to enjoy your company many more times in the future.

I would like to give a massive thank you to the sponsors XTX AIR and Solware.

I think that Mick deserve a big round of applause for providing the chocolates positioned along the course, thanks Mick.

We will very much look forward to welcoming anyone along to the Boxing day shoot on the 28th. Jane has just asked me to ask you one thing, please can everyone that would like to shoot on the day put their name on the list when we start one. Also you are very welcome to put your breakfast order in at the same time as putting your name on the list.

All the best.

Congrats to Furnace Mill on todays shoot, well done on a very good, opening shoot. Many thanks to Mark and Ian for the company. Looks like Ian might be a ringer with a 48 on his first HFT shoot and only his 3rd week of shooting

Enjoyed being a part of the HFT scene today even if I wasn't able to shoot but it seemed that shoot-off course was needed in the end so my time wasn't wasted.

Special mention to those in the shoot-off who elected to shoot standing due to the first man not being able to kneel; a special moment for the event.

Thanks to Chilly for helping with the safety speech and above all those who gave up their weekends to put the course on. It was a mammoth task but worth it it seems.

Thanks to Tye and Darrin for their help with the prizes, guys like you really make a difference.

Thanks for those who travelled and supported us on our first official club event.
