Traditionally the scores have been put up after a couple of days - at a link similar to this : http://www.essexgun.com/masters2018.html

For instance here are LAST YEARS ONLY : http://www.essexgun.com/masters2017.html

 

So - would be worth keeping your eye on that top link - i'll update if I see it. 

 

I've set up an alert if/when that page changes.

Ah, well, even the 4x4s got stuck!  Saw a Range Rover have 6 attempts at getting out and had to be pushed out in the end!  They’ve put down the stuff to drive over but it’s so wet as you drive over them they’re moving and sinking!   Take wellies as someone else said, it is so muddy I can’t see it ever drying out!!  A couple of guys were going round all day throwing wood chips down which did help but on the black course the last half of course in some places was awful, they had placed the boarding down to walk over but as you walked, again they were sinking and you was up to ankles in it.  

Apart from that, again great targets, excellent reffing, nice and friendly atmosphere as always.  I hope it does dry out as it could be dangerous in some places and I would hate for someone to fall and injure themselves.

We shot this yesterday, good targets and nothing too out ragously hard. Car park in the field is terrible and the footpaths and stands are a mess. Definitely take wellies and be prepared to get your gun slip and bag filthy, just hope they don't get any more rain.

I shot it Tuesday and enjoyed it. 82 Black 85 red. Was 3 away after the first six on black the the red on stand seven didn’t see a hit on the long battue so walked off that stand with a 5 when it should have been a 6. Lost my head and dropped a further 4 on the next stand. Killed my card but shouldn’t have let it get to me. 

All in all and nice set of targets and well worth going.

Was it the ref with the board hung around his neck, if so we had several problems with him missing hits. Out of a squad of 6 people we had 4 hits marked as losses, I also had a dispute with him the previous year over the same sort of thing, someone noted to him I had hit one He marked as a loss, I didn't make a fuss but he refused to budge.

65 red and 69 Black.  Don’t know what was going on with me on the red course which we started with but the Black was all me not giving a toss.  Course was fine nothing wrong with it, I just had a really carp day.

I'm shooting this tomorrow morning, today is supposed to be sunny but it's light grey cloud here as far as the eye can see, but it looks like it'll stay dry. Looking at the BBC weather forecast I'll be lucky if it stays dry tomorrow though.  I haven't got a 4x4 but I have got some wellies.
