Afternoon all.

That’s Round 2 dun-n-dusted, with thanks to Mile Oak and its crew for all the prep work and duties on the day, including Darren (with Tom) let loose in our new kitchen to feed the hoards. Seemed to go well and we shall see you all again at MOSC later in the year.

3 new-to-SIHFT faces today, boosting the turn out to 64, which is encouraging for the rest of the season and helps broaden the smile on the face of the Bonus Bunny winner.

While the weather we had only recently at Horsham put a doubt on SIHFT being a Summer Series, there could be no uncertainty whatsoever today. Wall to wall sunshine, nice and dappled in the woods, and just a smattering of breeze which absolutely could NOT make its mind up – either which way to puff or how strong.

I’ve just flicked through all 64 cards and you may all take a bow for score card completion. Failed to spot a single blank (where appropriate) section and all had witness sigs and marshal scribbles in the right places.

During the same ‘flick through’ I couldn’t fail to spot that while a couple of you knocked over all bar 1 target in the field, there were also 2 of you who managed to fell the whole of the field target offering. Amazingly well done both Jon N-M and Howard. I wonder if Howard smiled 😀

Anyway …. Here are the results. If you’ve not seen (or forgotten) the results table layout, perhaps the only column not recognised from its heading is the last one – the “T”. This denotes that this person’s score has been included in their club team result.

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 4 weeks away, on Sunday 16th June at Buxted. Their wood should be bluebell free by then and, who knows, quite possibly lacking in mud.

Between now and then, there appears to be relative ‘quiet’ on the HFT front. The only planned event I am aware of within our patch is a Pistol HFT at Mile Oak on Saturday 1st June (AM).
