Thanks to the Wendover team for the excellent course, no mickey mouse stuff, just great target placement and good use of the terrain - tunnel effect, treetops swaying= no wind drift, trees still= 1/2 a kill movement EH? Howd ya manage that?

Well maintained targets too, that fell even if you caught the inside edge

That meant few stoppages so progress was brisk in session 1, nice!

Thanks to my partners Geoff (or was it his evil twin?) and Shaun E. for good company all the way round.

We traveled a long way to participate in Rd 2 at Wendover and boy was it worth it!
One of the best courses we have ever shot with very few stoppages.
Well done to Pete Sparks and the team and all the staff at Wendover, without all the hard work you guys put in HFT wouldn't be what it is today.
Great company as per usual, all in all a thoroughly enjoyable day out. Roll on Rd's 3 & 4.

Rob & Chris Mobley

Big thanks to Dave Hatfeild and Steve Lanyman and the crew of Wendover for a fantastic course ,it was one of those courses that made you think long and hard before taking your shot.
I like the one where the strap was on one tree and the target was on the tree behind
And thanks to Dave Hatfeild and Guy Gillies for the company had a great time

What a brilliant venue & course, well worth the nion 400 mile round trip!
Both Myself & Marcus had another great weekend, so I'd like to say thanks to all involved! Also a big thanks to our shooting partner and fellow Wendover member Jonathan, we shared some cracking banter, even though he got me stoned 1/2 way round from a pure nicotine hit from his E-Cig
