Many thank to Rivi and the UKAHFT crew for another cracking competition in a beautiful part of the country.
Very well done to Ryan, top bombing mate, and thanks to you and Sean for the great company.
Well done to all the winners, and to the M.A.D team, the trophies fantastic !!
Looking forward to seeing you all at the next round at M.A.D

MAD for it.

Thanks Mark it's really appreciated. When it goes wrong Ells head just goes into melt down, I think when it went off he'd only dropped about 2 or 3 with maybe 5 or 6 to go. As soon as it went he fell off the rails too.
Fickle things teenagers .. As I said we very much appreciate the help you all gave, H is going to contact Chris regarding a new cocking lever but I need to get it flying for him one way or another and as I'm as mechanically minded as the average Armadillo.........

Thanks for the comments.

I would like to offer my apologies for the two pulled targets as they were both down to me. The base for the partial obscured one was just not good enough for this type of target.

The other was just my poor maths. I now know that 35 yds is not 115 ft but 105 ft. The target in question was queried on the course vetting but again I had the intelligent end of the tape and made the same mistake.

It was all Woki's fault really

Super days shooting. Great company around the course. Pleasure to shoot with such good shooters. Thanks Chris and James. We were so pleased when we all got the long target that got pulled (23?), saying it must have been the hardest on the course!
Big congrats to my mentor Ryan on his "2 clear point win"!

I wouldn't be too hard on yourself Ray, it's not the first time a target has been pulled in a national, I would bet money on it not being the last time either. My father always told me; "The man that has never made a mistake is a man that has never learned anything" and to prove him right I keep making them . The round was seemingly enjoyed by many and at the end of the day enjoyment should be the fundamental part of the sport or why do we do it?

Regards Andrew
