Hi all.

SIHFT is kind of a Summer series, and we certainly had the weather for it today. With not as much of a breeze as forecast a week ago – and just as well. I suspect an analysis of the score card will show more points being lost on the Downs-of-Doom than in the wood, in spite of it hosting only 1/3rd of the targets.

Big thanks to all the MOSC crew who helped prep the course over the past week. Plus thank yous to those who helped with the running of today’s event, including our marshals (Charles, Nik, Aaron and the Matt/Alicia duo) and Brigitte with both booking in and scoring.

Small increase in the turnout too, with an entry of 63.

Score card completion was generally very good, with zero corrections missing a marshal signature and only one (I heard of) being sent away by Brigitte to get the essential witness signatures on cards.
Here are the results. Charles was replaced by Graeme today, to be the one to narrowly miss taking home one of the SIHFT special Clear Round badges. Excellent shooting Cargs, keeping clear of following pack by no fewer than 4 points and limiting the total number of Gold Badges won to just 7. If you had achieved the lone 100% with a score of 56, the number of Gold’s won would have jumped to 16!!

Buxted 267 11 22
Horsham 243 10 20
Meon Valley 219 9 19

Can you spot any errors in this post? Have I spelt your name correctly? Do I have you down for the correct club/class? – please message me directly.

As a reminder, SIHFT Round 3 is in just 2 weeks, on Sunday 11th June at Buxted.

Nothing that I’m aware of happening (HFT wise) in Sussex next weekend, though I think there’s a monthly event at MAD and the BARC at Wormesley
