    ESP, CPSA reg - squadding can end

    Didn’t take me 3hrs to shoot it but it’s also a fair walk around now. Very pleasant actually.

    Was at a squadded shoot at weekend, two minor breakdowns = 3hours, previous weekend the squadded shoot at Bath was hearing that was another 3 hour event, so no, long shoots are not the sole preserve of the free for all entry shoot. The fellows at Grange, simply by being there at the time they were part of the crowd causing the perceived delays?? Been in that situation myself, look around a busy course start to think that its too much only to realise Im there so also part of the “problem” Like many I will enjoy the new freedom to pick n choose when I go out, if weather truly

    Exactly, you have the option to book into a squad. Assuming all the squads a full, and a lot of people turn up for the 11.30 kick off. The last squad of 6 moves off, the next group might only be a couple of shooters, the next may be 3, these groups will be constantly queueing behind the last squad as they will catch them straight away, and it will just be a knock on effect. Not only will people be turning up that are happy to start later, but will probably have the people turning up for their second shoot of the day. Will be interesting to see the feed back when it happens.

    Apparently Grange Farm was just full open entries on Sunday with people shooting stands in any order they liked and there were some decent queues around the ground. Mate of mine shot it and he said it was a right balls up in places.

    There is the option to book onto a squad or turn up later, so if you have to queue at 11.30 that's a personal choice. At least you know that barring trap breakdowns and refilling, you shouldn't have a significant queue after the first stand.

    This will be OK until a load of shooters all turn up at 11.30 to shoot, and there is a massive queue at stand 1.

    I'm a real fan of the squadding system, I'll be preferring grounds that offer it over those that do not. I heard complaints yesterday from shooters that it took 3 hours to shoot Grange as they were back to a free for all. It's a more professional approach and more closely mimics major shoots. Imagine turning up to a golf course and picking and choosing the holes you want to shoot in a random order.

    Hangmanstone for me too, I dropped 3 LH going aways on the first stand which should have been a gift, gradually improved (kicking myself) after a dodgy start for 84, well done for the sim pairs, I dropped a few of those, it took a while to find the midi, did OK on stand 8, ST4 dropped a teal, shot the rabbits 6 feet from the trap. T'was an enjoyable shoot. Sean said he'll keep squadding on the next Gunsite shoot then back to a free for all.

    Hangmanstone for me as well today, second squad out so missed the breakdown and got round in less than 2 hours. Missed last teal on stand 4, and was really happy to straight the sim pair on 9, and did ok on the rest for 87, one away on a few and missed 3 of the longer looper on 7, and kicked myself for missing 3 of the going away tower birds on 8; came back miles too far with the gun.

    Sporting Shoots 2021. Reports and discussion.

    Hangmans today, sadly MissP still away so MK38 had another outing, albeit with my butt plate now reattached. Booked a late start then sadly a breakdown on St2 caused a bit of a jam, all told took three hours to get around, thankfully overcast & cool so comfortable getting round. Bit of chatter about two stands St4 a r-l rabbit that dropped into a hollow o/r a decent teal, saw lots drop shedloads there, hit 3/4 bunnies “off the trap” and 2/4 teal my 5 was a score many would take. St9 (think) a very quick r/l simo pair (5 pairs) into the tree canopy, a monster q of at least 20+ most of which

    Barbury for us yesterday for the semi auto masters and what a shoot it was. A mixture of targets, 3 in air at once, and some simultaneous in air too! I love these shoots, they’re good fun. Stand 9 was a mini, a midi and a standard all coming from right simultaneously! That was my bad stand, and stand 12 I think it was, 3 singles all on report, a rabbit r-l, standard from left and an incomer from right. The rabbit came out on a higher tier than the stand and being short I could only see literally the top of the rabbit from where we stood so was an eyesight test. The auto only comes out once

    Any non squaded shooters starting after 11.30 have to shoot the stands in order. Then they don't interfere with the squads already out, but have the flexibility to just turn up and shoot.

    How’s that going to work? Does the 11:30 squad have to complete the shoot before the non squadded shooters go out or can non squadded shooters go out at 11:45 in which case it will slow down the squadded shooters…. Confused.com….

    That sounds like a really good compromise, as long as the squads keep full till 11.30 I can see that being a good system to keep both types of shooter happy.

    I saw on FB that after the next few shoots Steve Lovett has said it will be squaded on his shoots until 11.30 (I think) then anyone can turn up, that way if you are doing a few you know you can get round and away for others in the day. Good idea.

    Fired about 175 cartridges today whilst wearing my new Novo plugs, and: 1) They are comfortable. No movement in the ears, at all. 2) They do suppress the sound of shots adequately, but not as well as my cans, which is of no surprise. 3) I can hear the traps working. 4) I can hold conversations, without trying to lipread.😀 5) If I wear my cans as well, there is no electronic feedback, which is a big problem when wearing hearing aids. All in all, happy enough with my purchase. Steve.

    I'm happy with the squadding system, especially on weekends when I like to get out early and get my shooting done. Knowing that it's going to take a couple of hours at the most suits me.

    Amber Hill Gold medal

    I don't think it was because she was pinged, she tested positive for Covid I believe.

    Amber Hill Gold medal

    Sad that when you are world #1 you lose the chance to compete for Olympic gold through being pinged - as I understand it she’s now out of Tokyo - have not followed the lead up closely - does GB have any other medal contenders
