One thing you might find pleasing, the forecasts are in agreement about only a little wind, and from the north to north west. That is a quite unusual direction here, and will probably erase any home advantage. So come on you potential course clearers......

A reasonable day had by all, virtually no wind, unheard of at Shebbear, for the first time ever folk were not coming out of the kill at all, top score 39 ex 40 so the course retains its reputation as having never been cleared.

Well done Steve Franklin with top score in FT graded class.

A shower of rain from 1130 until 1200 altered everything and the breeze came up until about 2pm then died down again just in time to give Damian preferential treatment on the HFT course.

Thanks to all the crew at Shebbear for an enjoyable, if rather wet day out!

Great banter and nice to see people I've not seen in a while.

Usually used to giving plenty of wind on that course but today was the exact opposite. :eek sometimes going straight down the middle or just picking an edge. Only had to come out of kill once today

As Tony said, thanks to Rich and all the helpers, not forgetting the ladies in the kitchen, for a really good shoot.

The lack of wind was pretty unnerving, and the shower... erm, refreshing?

Two entertaining courses, and we even had sunshine after lunch.

Pyeworthy next, can we expect similar conditions?
