Sunday is just about full. Which is a shame as it means I will need to travel back up to collect the trophy.

Only 5 spots left on Sunday and about 25 Saturday at the minute and not even 24 hrs yet. Must admit I stayed up past night to midnight even to book on for the Fridays for all 3.

I thought about a “Miserable Old Man” class but in reflection it might be too competitive 😆

It’s an annual shoot set by the Thorrolds who now run Barrow Heath.  I went last year and it was a fun shoot set for mixed ability with one stonkingly hard stand that I believe Richard Bunning May have only hit 1 clay.  So hard you know you are unlikely to get them but it was really fun trying.  Basically a marquee, straw bails to sit on, food and drink and a good atmosphere.  Nice land.  It is being advertised on Facebook so I’ll tag you on it.

 

i realised I could add it here

We shot it last year for the first time and really enjoyed it. Lovely piece of ground like you say and quality targets.

Richard missed three midi's on that stand. And finished on 117. I beat him on that stand but he beat me on the other 14 😁.  I saw about 40ft lead on that midi.

Yes I should have made myself clearer, he got 1 of the hardest ones.  I really enjoyed it even the horrible rabbits that went down the gully 😝
