Last weekend saw the the first 2 stages of the 2015 National Series at Oxford.
On a rather windy Saturday I could only manage a 669 WA 50m ranking round. Come the afternoon with some consistent shooting in the head to heads I found myself in the final against Adam Ravenscroft, last end and 1 point down I shot x x 10 to win by 1 point and a great start towards getting to the final in Nottingham at the end of August.
Day 2 started off with a light breeze and the shooting was more where it should be for the first 3 doz, the wind picked up for the next 3 doz, and stayed for the rest of the day, leaving me with a more respectable 688 and in 1st place for the qualification round. Unfortunately in the 2nd round of Head to Heads I came up against Chris White and was beaten 143 to 141 finishing the day in 9th place.
Overall I am sitting in 2nd place in the race for the top eight who get invited to the finals.
