    Shooting and banter was fun as usual Tony. The damp and cold got into us a bit though.
    Retreated to the tea room about 11.00
    Planning another clay busting session next week following the plink.
    We found out yesterday that the range will be closed on 25/12 just because it's Xmas. We are going to complain!!

    Great to hear it went well, Pete.

    Closed on the 25th December? Eh?

    Had a plinking session with a friend's old Venom 77 today. 1985 stage 1 tune. .22 cal. The thing was amazing, recoil was next to nil. Just kept smiling with every pellet fired. Mach 1.5

    Sounds like a most excellent, enjoyable and meaningful way of spending quality time, Paul.

    And just shows how nicely even the earlier Venoms shot.. I think it was 1984, maybe 1985, when the team first tuned one of mine.

    All the best Mick

    Although a huge source of sadness and disappointment for the wonderful Boingerati peeps, this must be so devastating for you and the family, Mick; especially the not being able to see the light at the end of the tunnel and the end of this awful, debilitating condition..

    You take good care of yourself, Maestro. And one of us WILL be kidnapping you for a day at Quigley Bottom.

I think two a year, three at an absolute maximum, strikes the ideal balance between gaps between events and maintaining decent attendance numbers to make them viable. At the last one, many of us had a chat and concluded that we'd all be happy to pay more, if needed, or to chip in as and when required to maintain viability and not take for granted the good nature and commitment of the host(s).

    The Sun always shines in Quigleydom. We were treated to unbelievably warm, Summer-like conditions at this October Bash.
    Absolutely Tone, nothing but uttermost respect and admiration for the hard work and dedication it must take to organise one of these bashes and I do understand folk travel wide and far to attend.

    Ironically both venues literally on my own door step and as you know it did take sometime for me to finally attend being dragged kicking and screaming whilst captured by yours truly

    Yep, the reasoning behind the chaps that travel those huge distances is mainly to do with time and expense, Nick, making it a pretty big commitment......booking time off work, appeasing loved ones, travel and accommodation expenses etc....just goes to show how good the Bash events are and how much they're loved when you consider how many make the commitment.

    Guessing Quigley Bottom might be even closer for you?

    We'll try and get our Mick there. If he's reluctant / thinks he may not be able to handle it, one of us will have to turn up at his in Clouseau-esque disguise mode and nick him away for the day.. Sshhhh, though, don't want him to rumble us.

    There's a cheap enough looking little Gamo Magnum in the Sales Section. Would be tempted if I had the space. Should make a nice little project.
