Just like to say well done to Cambridge the club,the course they set today was great for any-one that has shot Cambridge in the past it was very noticable what hard work they did for us the shooters.
The 57 and 55 from them 2 from MAD was super shooting its about time that Sean came out on top .
well done to all and a great day.
cheers Ian

What a fantastic course! Well thought out and challenging. It was interesting to shoot the wood from the other end, so to speak!!! Wind was a nightmare though!
Thanks to Larissa and Ken for your company and well done Larissa on your win.
Congratulations to Shaun and Darren and all the other winners too.

Thanks to everyone at Cambridge for today, especially Bruce and Andrea, well placed course with evil wind .

Thanks to Richard and Simon for the company round the course, lovely weather pity we had to shoot off early, see you all at Quarry.

Hi all thank you all for comming down yesterday it was great to see a good turn out.

I know a hell of a lot of shooters had travelled a long way and spent a lot of money on accomadation and fuel to compete and enjoy the UK rounds, So me, the Wife,Colin,Dan and Kevin spent a long time trying to set out a good competitive and enjoyable course which we thought we had acheived but unfortunatly put a target out that caused a lot of issues to this we are sorry.
We had anticipated some wind but what we got felt like hurricane ( Andrea the Wife) screaming down the course and this set about the unrest amongst a few people plus the large amount of shooters miss ranging it did not help.
I chatted to quite a few folks and they had ranged it at around 38 yards may be a bit less when it was actullay 42 1/2 yards and on a head shot thats moving is not going to help score 2 points.
What I tried to do was provide a shoot that the hard HFT shooters would get something out off and the juniors would also come of smilling, like Anthony my 9 year old and this being his first UK year was overjoyed when he shot the duck and got two points and luckily i got it as well.
So sorry guys if I let you down a bit this won't happen again but turning a barren bit of mud into a Hft shoot for top shooters in the country I can assure you is no easy task, try it and see.
If we are lucky enough next year to get a shoot and I for one very much hope we do, I think I will let someone else from the club have a crack at it because its bloody hard work, and I could not have done any of this without the Wife and the guys I have mentioned above so thank you to them.

enjoyed the course Bruce, lots of effort put into it and it showed.

It's easy to make the odd oversight with a target, in different conditions, that target would have been praised for being creative. Can't win 'em alll mate, it would have been nice if the "same shot for everyone" element gets picked up on course checking.

Well worth the drive to shoot the course though, even though I got spanked
