2014 Comm Games Update#09

Well good news. John Snowden and Mike have made the final 100 for tomorrow's Queens Prize.

15 shots each at 900 &1000 yds. John about 63rd place and Mike about 84. Also John is in the final 100 of the St George tomorrow morning with 15 shots at 900yds and is placed in the top 10. He then has to join the rest of us to shoot in a long range team match at 10 am to 12-30 pm then shoot his Queens final at 2-30. No time for ice creams. It is forecast to rain as well!!

We won our 4man teams match today. The Kolapore match was 10 shots @ 3, 5 & 600 yds coached by Mike and John as practice for the games. The Australians had a bit of a mis-spell of the match name. Was written Koala Paw match. They lost to GB as well. Just returned from a meal hosted by our ever supportive John and Deb Deane at the North London Club.

Gee they have been good to us, picking us up from airports, arranging beds, club membership, armoury access and are taking us miles to our train that takes us to Glasgow. We will try to repay in kind when they return to Trentham.
