Default Great day !!

Thanks to all at furnace mill for such an enjoyable day. Great shooting by many today. First time I've seen a clearance up at the mill so well done Gordan ! Thanks to my shooting partners today who added to the enjoyment. Can't wait to do it again when I've recovered from the stiff back, legs, arms and knees, one final thanks to Ed for playing taxi driver ! I wouldn't of made the 3 rounds without you. Thank you.

Massive thanks to everyone at Furness Mill for 3 fantastic courses and 3 flawlessly run shoots, fantastic ground and food
Also I would like to congratulate everyone who marshalled or shot the 3 courses also when I achieved my clearance everyone congratulated me and I felt quite humble and that's what is best about HFT, is the genuine sportsmanship.

Thoroughly enjoyed the endurance day so thank you very much Furnace Mill, and I will try to get to the next one when it comes around.

Great experience shooting with Gordon and see him get that final target down He was putting himself under a lot of pressure but it paid off (Glad you got back home safely!!)

Well done to Dave for the overall win, good shooting mate!

I'm not sure if an endurance (90 targets) day has been done before, but I think this one went well and everyone seemed to enjoy it

Sorry for the late reply/post but we have had no broadband since Friday and in fact we still haven't got any, so I have had to go elsewhere to post this.
I would like to thank everyone for coming it is always a pleasure to welcome you hear at Furnace Mill, I can't believe how far some of you travel to shoot here. Congratulations to everyone on some great shooting. It was absolutely fantastic to witness Gordon's face when he cleared the first 30 course, brilliant well done couldn't have happened to a nicer person.
well done to Dave, Stu and Tony for taking the top three places overall. Mitch for winning the junior class and this must sound really bad but I can't remember who won the recoiling class, but I'm in the very north of Northumberland an have got no way of finding out. So congratulations to you anyway.
A really big thank you to the Furnace Mill Team for all of your help, support and commitment to the club, Jane and I really appreciate it.
