Default English Open Results

Firstly a huge Congratulations to Theresa Reed on becoming the English Open Champion. Shoot off between Theresa and Rudy Goldslade who both finished on 55. Theresa showed how it’s done by knocking all 3 targets over.
A big thank you to all the Ellis family, Jason, Katy, Thomas & Jess, for letting Misfits use their land at North Luffenham for the English Open. This was the first time a HFT competition had been held there, so it was a level playing field for all.
Three days of cutting, chopping and clearing and we’d got a HFT course that almost brought grown men to tears. The wind was blowing from the left, no the right, no it’s from the front, oh I really don’t know now!
Congratulations to all the trophy winners, you just about had the wind sussed.
Thank you to all course setters and marshals, there was a few trips across the river for David Nicholls. Thank you to everyone who helped pull in the course at the end.

Well done Theresa, and well done Greg Hensman and the Misfits, swine of a course. Just shows that a wind doesn't have to be ferocious to have such an effect. A good place for an hft course.

Great venue, the course had everything
Awesome shooting in the shoot off Theresa, especially after the trouble you have had with your wrist.

Massive well well done to Theresa and Rudy getting 55s on that course with those tricky winds 😳 Lots of guys crashed and burned today me as well lol
Special thanks to Ken and Paul pleasure to shoot with you guys, they were blitzing the course most of the way round and I thought either of them may have won it
Well done all the course setters cracking comp well worth traveling 6.5 hours for 😄
Still got 160 miles to go was stuck on A1 for 45 min without moving then all 3 lanes of the M1 were blocked for over an hour ?
