If you go onto the fitasc website, there are results on there too.  Yes, it looks tough indeed.

Thurs very strong southerly winds and rainshowers. Friday fine and still strong winds but more from west. On Edgar Bros / Zoli (layout 5) targets were not pushed so far out so average score was maybe 4 birds higher than Thurs.

Alot lighter winds and sunshine this morning.

Regards

Leigh

Sian,

 Thanks for the link, I had heard it was tough due to weather conditions.

Spoke too soon yesterday, wind was soon back to near Thurs level and direction. Exceptional 25s from Martin Myers and Paul Lovick on Edgar Bros.

I look forward to that, shootinguru. I have not managed to visit despite an intention to do so.

I've heard that from a couple of different people today, that couldn't be bothered to stay and shot the last layouts. Seems to be a bit of a trend at these big shoots these days. Whats the answer??

Also heard that some of the big gun companies from Italy, and Germany are not to happy either, after travelling  over. Apparently there were no traps available for people to try their guns.:eek:

I have been ashamed to be British  twice this week!  One was the elections!

Met some shooters today who had abandoned the last day. Too wind affected they said.

I find it hard to believe that Graham wouldn't have thought of traps to try out the guns. There are quite a few I'm sure down at his Shooting School only eight miles away by road. Perhaps the firms concerned hadn't thought to factor that in?

I haven't been there to have a look, as I said earlier, but it was indeed windy today, and I for one would have found conditions extraordinarily challenging. But I'm not a European Championship class shooter, and these guys must have known the layout would be catering for top shots rather than mediocre ones. The top of the leader board managed a reasonable score:  http://englishsportingclays.co.uk/fitasc/european-championship/results

Graham has an enviable reputation for setting up these events. I would be very surprised if it was in any way rubbish.

tCharles, Look at the number of shooters that jacked in the shooting without finishing?  You are  incorrect when you state this is for top shots! If that was so there would be less than 100 entries including Ladies, Juniors, Veterans and Super Vets!     The rules say there should be 2 soft targets, 1 medium and 1 med/hard target and that the hard target should not be in the doubles? These rules  were not followed in this shoot!  Without the "mediocre" shots there would be no European or World Championships because it would not be viable to hold them!

Shootinguru, I stand corrected.

That was an interesting video...

I shot it and thoroughly enjoyed it. The weather conditions made it tricky but I would imagine over the four days it pretty well levelled out for everyone.

A lot of effort had gone into spreading the shoot out to make the most of the landscape. Quite a lot of shooting below the feet which we are not so much used to in Lincs. 

Yes the catering could have been better but with only shooting half a day and it being a holiday area it was not too difficult to find places to eat outside the shooting ground.

Have you ever shot a European or World abroad?

I have to say that everyone I have spoken to who shot Lulworth , thought it was the worst shoot ever , they complained about literally everything from targets to lack of food. Many said it was typically French , and won by a Frenchman.Which possibly tells a story in itself.

If an Englishman can't have a moan it takes all the pleasure out of life!

No! It was not typically French!  In  France there,would be many food and drink stalls not just one!    The biggest problem for me was shooting two parcours. One after the other!  So there was no time to socialise with other shooters, no time between parcours to drink a coffee and unwind!   The first day I was on afternoon start! 11.50 I think?  I was up,at six, left home at seven, got there at eight twenty, waited for my mate, then went for a pee and a cup of coffee, hell of a queue didn't bother! Went to find the parcours as no on was allowed on them till day one!  Went to car and togged up prepared for wind and rain! Walked 250 yards to catch bus, shot the two parcours caught the bus back got in the car a went home! No razz no buzz no F/A!   Repeated four days

When you shoot Fitasc as a LEFTIE  you get a referee that stands at quarter to nine on your left in your periferal vision and a right hand shooter the referee stands at five and twenty past five almost behind you!

Oh dear! One food/drink stall sounds about right for Pilford or 3 Lions. Doesn't sound all that good between hundreds of competitors and others.

Salopian, as I'm writing this in France and thoroughly enjoying everything French it's difficult to embrace the comment about "typically French". But I didn't visit, so I don't know.

Schmokinn, I don't think you've met MrsP.

Apart from the dog, and his crate, and his food (in a freezer box because of course we can't be confident about getting him something to eat in France despite it being the umpteenth trip with him) and his toys and throws to drape over the furniture in the farmhouse (despite the farmhouse being both rural and fully equipped) and his leads and grooming stuff, we had to pack in my own meagre set of clothes, several months' supply of her clobber, a medical bag that left us better equipped than Poole Hospital A&E, towels, washing powder, dishwasher tablets, industrial quantities of toilet roll, kitchen roll, raincoats, umbrellas, food (because of course we may not be able to buy food), crisps, water, wine (I know, I know), computers, chargers, hair equipment, electrical adapters, three pairs of binoculars, badminton kit, duvet cover 'n sheet 'n pillow cases. The list is endless, and while packing it all into the vehicle (having spent an age persuading her that her own Peugeot 207 might not be big enough) I saw that she was taking a bag of onions. Onions, FFS, to France, the epicenter of Global onion availability!

I shouldn't have spent all that time looking for a small second hand 4 x 4. I should have been seeking out an artic.

That's the battle for cargo space that I'm fighting...
