I wish that I wasn't working on the day of this as I want to support the relaunch of air gun competition at Broomhills.
I visited them in the mid 1980s but it wasn't untill I got my first pcp about 4 years ago that I started to go again, on and off.
I joined Lea Valley and my current club Shepreth because there was no HFT competition at Broomhills.
I will be involved with these HFT comps at Broomhills when work commitments allow, and any comps will be scheduled to that they don't clash with local clubs and national shoots where possible.
By the way Mark, we will still be Shepreth members and come along as often as usual:)
One advantage of Broomhills is that its open 7 days a week, so I might start to practise, I don't at the moment and my shooting suffers because of that :(

Looks like I may be able to attend this one after all:cool:
I have asked for leave and they seem to think it may be ok:D

Ok guys and gals, one week left untill the event, can we have a show of hands so we know how many to cater for,
The weather looks like it might behave for this event, hopefully it will be windier though:D.

Course is set, roughly to UK spec, not tooo many long ones or short ones, but a few tricky ones to sort out the top shots;)
Should be hot so don't forget a hat or some sun cream:)
See you tomorrow at 1:30 for a 2:30 start, approx
Had a great day here today, fantastic location and everyone was made to feel very welcome. The course, set mainly in the woods, was not the hardest i have shot but a for a first time of setting one, John and Vicky certainly did a grand job.
A big well done to all the people at Broomhills, i am sure there will be many return visits:D.

Thoroughly enjoyable day and a big well done to all the Broomhills crew. Excellent first HFT event :)

Thanks for the kind words Mark and Tony:cool: a few lessons learned and next time will be a little harder with some more variety in the shots;)
Lots of new shooters introduced to HFT and several went away with prizes ans awards.
Results will be up later today when Vicky has recovered:rolleyes:
Thanks to everyone who attended, it made all the hard work worthwhile.

For a first time shoot 'well done'.
Had some of the aspects of the early days at Markyate,I gave myself a few moments to think back to the 80's and the shooters who grew up there and became well known names;a very friendly and good atmosphere, some shooters on their first competition learning as they went,as they did in the early days.
Course not too tricky,but had a sting in its tail if you let your concentration wander.:rolleyes:
More use of the light conditions in the woods could make future course layouts heartbreakers.:D. Looking forward to future events.
Compliments to all involved on setting up this first 'Markyate' shoot,and the interest in setting Hft up at Markyate by the owners.
Markyate definately has a potential as a first class club and a bright future.
