Another day at Bisley.

It can be a real leveler when the tricky winds come by and you are on the top of Stickledown at 1000yds thinking how on earth am I going to get out of this with some credibility. Some of us did ok, some not so ok. A lot depended on when you were drawn to shoot and also whether you could get in step with some big wind changes and then having to make a wind choice, then fire within 45 seconds!!

We shot 300 & 600 as well. John got a 49.9@ 300, Mike got a bit of a #$/^&* at 1000 and John M had a steady day as did I with a wee highlight for me scoring 50.9 in the 600yd Wimbledon for second place. So we are all not at the bottom of the Grand agg. Stage 1 (15 @ 300yds)  of the St George tomorrow plus local teams matches then stage 1 of the Queens on Thurs. The Aust Team kindly had us over for barby tonite. Lots of Fosters, sausage and steak. Was good.

Correction

Sorry folk. The Grand Agg also includes stage 1 of the St George (300yds, 15shots) and stage 1,2 & 3 of the Queens (300, 500 & 600yds, 7shots) plus the 600 & 900. I assumed the stage 1 events were seperate to the Grand. So a lot of oppotunities for good and maybe not so good results.
