National Series Final

What a blast Practice all week had been going very well, we arrived at the venue at 10.00am plenty of time to get settled. Practice on the day was nice and relaxed, bit of banter between competitors plenty of laughs. Then came the first match, nothing can prepare you for this except doing it.  My…

National Series stages 5 & 6

The weekend started Saturday morning at 3am getting ready to leave for a 235 mile drive down to Exmouth for the closing shoot for the 2015 National Series. The WA50 qualification round went well on a slightly breezy morning and I came on top with 683. The afternoon didn't go so well, I think tiredness…

National series stages 3&4 – Surrey

Surprise  surprise it  was windy all weekend, still not necessarily here for the  scores as  much  for  the  finishing position. With a 1st and 9th place from Oxford gave me 2nd  place in the series rankings,  I  was certainly looking to maintain that. The WA 50m  was a tricky 683, but with some reasonable 144…

Clophill Fita Fest

July 4th and  5th was  the Clophill  Fita  Fest, Saturday  started  out  as  many others have  this  year  - windy. I  have to  say i  considered packing it  in  and  trying  again  on Sunday, but I stuck  it out scoring a measly 671 and  not  a  decent pass among  the  H2H's  for my ranking.  The…

Cambridge WA 50m & WA1440

Great weekend at Cambridge with the WA50m and H2H on the Saturday and a WA1440 on the Sunday. The WA50m went well, in a light breeze I managed a 692. That will go towards my ranking and next years qualification.  The H2H in the afternoon were a damp affair with a constant light misting of…

Middlesex WA 1440

The best day for shooting so far this  year, and it started out so well with new county records for 90m, 70m and  the Long metric.  Unfortunately after lunch 50m didnt quite go to plan and I didnt work out what I was doing wrong until 1doz into 30m. Still a good score of 1393…

1st Caswell WA1440

A wet and windy Kettering was last weekends venue. Could only manage 1366, still I suppose it's getting better. Can't wait for a decent day I am sure I can get back to last year's scores. Looking at  the scores  below I need to work on my short distances. 90m 323 70m 350 50m 340…
