    Exclamation Sussex Interclub HFT 2023 - Round 7 Results

    Hi Everyone

    Oh yes. Biggles is back, and this time not just in an admin role. Just over a week ago I asked the consultant who fitted my new hip if I could be ‘allowed’ to adopt the HFT Kneeling position. He reckoned I’d be OK in another 4 weeks. So, me being me, I tried it the very next day and it seemed OK – as long as I took it carefully. Seemed to work well when I entered Buxted’s HFT Open last week, and again today.

    Thanks to all (quite a decently sized crew) at Mile Oak who helped set and dismantle today’s course and a repeat of the verbal BIG THANKS to Wurze and his lovely lady Jax, who came along to feed the 5000 – at very short notice. The breakfast pies were only going in the oven at 10pm yesterday!!!

    Before today’s kick-off, we celebrated past (relatively recent) victories by issuing Simon Vant and Tom Hayes with the SIHFT Platinum badges won at Round 5 and the UKAHFT National Round winning trophy to Paul Charman for his superb win in the 0.22 class at Maldon the other week. Well done, guys.

    Before getting on to the scores, just one wee mention of today’s weather. OMG was it or was it not HOT HOT HOT. I do wonder if some of today’s scores were impacted by muzzle velocities creeping up a tad; definitely hot enough for that. Did you spot this with your own gun?

    Here are the full results

    As well as the badges noted above, there were 3 new SIHFT Platinums awarded (for achieving 5 Golds) today. These went to Howard Kalish, Nik Orr and yours truly. Well done us

    All but one team (Horsham) fielded at least a full team of 5 bodies. For Horsham, to top up their 4 person team one card was drawn at random, as per the SIHFT rules, leading to the following results.

    Club Round 7 scores Round 7 points Total scores Total points
    Oaks 283 12 1952 83
    Buxted 263 11 1878 78
    Meon Valley 238 10 1675 69
    Horsham 224 8 1413 63
    Ford 236 9 1371 59

    Today’s lucky draw winners were:

    £66 Bonus Bunny – Maryam Shapouri

    Air Arms Goody Bag – Glenn Turner

    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 8 is in 3 weeks, on Sunday 24th September, when we return to Buxted. Will it be muddy?? Greater risk of falling down cracks in the ground if this weather continues.

    What else is happening between now and then ……

    Well, there’s the wee matter of the 2-day WHFTA Championships at Borders Wood (near Nottingham) over the weekend of the 16th and 17th September.

    I’ve also a diary note of an Open HFT at Ford on the 10th Sept, but not sure if that’s going ahead. Perhaps some of our friends from Ford/SHOTS can confirm.

    And on the off-chance that its owner is solely an Airgun BBS reader (rather than FB), please note that a set of Primos (Mk2 I'm told) sticks were found at the club today, while we were packing away. They are safe and currently held at the club site.

    Please get in touch if you are the owner.
