Thumbs up

Plus one for Toms comments. I had an absolute blast recording my PB for a Lincs HFT comp (first one entered so that was a given) simultaneously recording my worst ever score ever! with severe donut poisoning included. Not sure what happened yet but I couldn't even hit a 25 yard target in the garden when I got home as Tom said, give Lincs a try for a top course, top folks and well worth the drive. Thanks to everyone involved in staging the event. Will I be back? Most certainly and I will be chasing a new PB

Yes but you southerners say it so nicely that it is hard to take offence.

Glad you and Julie and Simon had a great day with our Lincs friends.

I blame that Nick chap. Yet again I shot a target that I had no idea of the range but I somehow dropped it this time.
One of Nicks along and under the hedge shots is like nothing else ever experienced in a HFT comp, you're not quite sure what is happening and it doesn't feel quite right at any stage. I use at least 5 methods of range finding and none of them work in this situation.

I can honestly say that I just guessed that it was most likely to be under 35 yards, and nothing seemed to be lined up for an obstruction and so shot dead on at the bit I could see.
