Default Swefta shoot at East Devon today


Just wanted to say my boys and I had a great time at the shoot today!
Thanks to Jeremy and all the guys that put on a challenging but "fair for all" levels HFT shoot.
New course was great and some new shooting positions had to be invented! Is it fair having to bend pelets like "the Matrix"?

See you all next time!


John, Will and James.
Kind Regards

Thumbs up Good Course

Yes, thanks to Jeremy and ALL East Devon'ers who put on today's shoot .... Lovely food, lovely day out and very enjoyable.

The new HFT course looked fantastic and I can see a lot of work went into its construction, well done ALL. If I wasn't so tired I would have loved to have had a crack at that, but really enjoyed the FT course!

Default I must remember to clean my barrel, page 43!

Not been to east Devon since 2013, it has to be said the damage caused by the storms cant be really appreciated in photos, its a very different course. The scheduled 2016 Swefta Gp there will, if the wind is up be a much tougher affair than prvious year. Lots of good angles in the course today but a sensible something for all grades, perfect regional layout.

Well done to Steve franklin on top score and to Tony F on clearing the course in open.
Food was superb, company and chat as ever the friendliest.

Just a few, rest on facebook

Gadget dropped 5 first time out with the x80 march. Top scopes, dodgy user.
He missed the two long (38 & 43y standers), missed one for wind (? There was none all day lol), 1 for mis ranging and one out or order, well it is Gadget!

AA beckons though and I can see him putting in scoring cards for Wales next weekend

My new wide angle lens may make Roger look a touch short, Gilly needs to line him up??

don't ask what time this was taken lol

Alan lines up the 38y stander, good job it were not video !

I look small and slimmer, think new lens is faulty !

Not too far, maybe incase you take them standing? Good call!

Thanks to all at East Devon.
