Deserved its own thread one feels, am shooting both Sportrap (AM) & Sporting (PM) on thursday, having a full day, might even get brave & have dip the pool shoot too. Having shot the EO and felt bitterly dissapointed at my own lack of ability one will be going to the BO with no expectations whatsoever, for me its a big day out shooting and Ive every intention of smiling through the whole day.

To each and every one of you going do have a wonderful time, for near 100% of us its after all a hobby, possible, but I feel its going to be very big ask for the winner to be a fresh face

Good luck Rich...try not to get to angry after the first stand.:wink:

Nearly thought about shooting the sportrap Thursday, (1 space left) as I'm just up the road picking the Beretta up. But then thought I can't be arsed.

SHooting both on Saturday although Tony had a hernia op yesterday so it might not be possible for him.  Like Rich I’m going for the day out, chat my way around and enjoy Mr Lovatt’s hard work.

seen a layout plan and no additional car parking is indicated, its overflows on a good sunday so will be inadequate for this event, hope they have made plans to alleviate the problem rather than just like it or lump it

I’m really looking forward to shooting this. I’m in on Saturday but only for the sporting.

Looking forward to this too as it’s my ‘local’ shoot....on at 11.24am Friday 31st  

Hopefully it will be the same targets and normal and I’ll pop in a 115 😂

If you’ve not been before it’s  a beautiful ground and I’m really glad they’ve been given a chance to host it. 

Good luck everyone 👍

I see that field every time i go,  just because its green and flat and doesnt mean its parking, Is it designated as such? it doesnt indicate it on the layout plan sent out by the CPSA.

In fairness, the extra parking isn't indicated but you've got to assume they've got it covered. It's not their first rodeo, so to speak.

I was expecting to see the Moorhen trap being used on the lake as you drive in. Was excited for a first attempt at a water target :D

The CPSA are maddening on social media. Lots of photos of shooters (wow) and the clubhouse. Picture of a dog. Some referees. Who gives a toss! Where is the live leaderboard or even occasional updates. FFS.

Oh dear, I quite like seeing the photos of the shooters and refs.  Leaderboard not important to me as I ain't gonna be a leader ..  Ben is pretty good though at putting up the scores regularly.  PS the dog is gorgeous 😁

Clynt, there is one pre-shoot & its on web, am sure someone more savvy than I can link it, when I saw it there were 1070 comp entries, breakdown & prize list for places, all by class more places in some due to comp numbers in each, as for post shoot not sure if its updated
