    Sussex Interclub HFT 2018 - Round 4 Results

    Hi All

    As already mentioned in the SIHFT Facebook post, Horsham Hawks today deserve a HUGE thanks from us all for putting out a course to challenge the best; and plenty of the best were present.

    We had light and dark, and then some very dark. We had range traps (which cost me half of my dropped points). And we had the sort of breeze in the field we all dream of – right to left, left to right, nothing; rarely two the same. Actually those dreams are more commonly known as nightmares. Hey ho.

    But at least the early rain stopped and didn’t return and the ground was pretty much dry.

    I’m sure I heard Phil J mutter that he’d expected clearances, but only 3 got close – with superb 58s achieved by the lady of the day (Jill – who enters Open class, just to show us up), plus Si (in shorts, as always) and Phil-the-man himself; all ages and genders covered the top place.

    Horsham also equaled Swallows a few weeks ago in having just two stoppages. Can any other club beat this stoppages PB? For those unaware, I gather that the pulled target on lane 11 was due to the target mount’s failure – the thing fell over and it was impracticable to re-erect it.

    Anyway, here is the full set of results ….. layout rubbish as before, since my PC's ability to use the BBS 'paste from Word' function has ceased to do so.

    Please let me know a.s.a.p. if you spot anything you think is amiss. A few of you tapped me on the virtual shoulder after the last SIHFT and I am happy to put right any wrongs.

    Prize drawer winners today were :
    • Eoin O’Brien – the £35 cash prize, and
    • Roy Pearce – the Air Arms goody bag, for which an IOU was issued (verbally) by Charles

    Team scores today and points are:
    Club Round 4 Cumulative Points
    Buxted 275 46
    Oaks 270 46
    Meon Valley 267 38
    Maldon 267 29
    Horsham 254 34
    Swallows 252 27
    Ford 247 30
    Iden Fern 247 24

    Ford and Iden Fern required lucky-dip cards, Iden needing 3 and Ford 2.

    There are a couple of ‘things’ going on next week (minor stuff such as the UKAHFT at Rivington and Emley Moor), but I give my usual sign-off wishing you safe and happy shooting wherever you are until we meet again in two weeks (1st July) at the place we all know we can ‘clear’ - Buxted

    Missing - presumed having a good time
    One of the very best HFT courses that I have ever shot - thank you Phil and the rest of the Horsham crew; you chaps should take a huge bow!

    5 years of shooting HFT, and I'm still learning - today's lesson = always re-zero when you open a new tin of pellets.....

    Finally, thank you to Mike, Charles, and the Sussex clubs that make the SIHFT Series happen - it is surely the very best (in fact, in my books it is the only) way to spend one's summer.

    Roll on Buxted in a fortnight

    Thank you Hawkies,

    As a fellow course setter I really appreciate the effort you guys put into setting out that course. As Mike said the use of light and dark in the woods was smart as was the use of the undulating terrain and the weird wind was a bonus. I take my hat off to Jill, Phil and Simon, cracking scores

    See you all at Buxted.

    Save time, see it my way

    That was a very well thought out course, nothing seemed easy and nothing seemed very hard but was still caught out by some deviously placed targets. Add some looney Horsham wind and you get a very testing and enjoyable course.
    Well done Hawkies.

    Unfortunately I was double bucked this weekend in Blackburn so couldn't make what sounds like a great day. Looks like Sarah Millican was way funnier than some of your scores. Top bombing Jill. Buxted is always there for the taking. See you all there.

    Proper Job

    Thanks to all the Hawkies who helped put on a spot on morning's entertainment.

    It was a pleasure Paul...still annoyed about peg 30
    ...the barrel shoots, the stock hits the target...
