    Good to see you Darren, I'd add the 3rd RCO Iain (Buchan on here) to your list of thanks.

    Some cracking weather saw over 20 stalkers turn out for 100 yds practice plus three competitions and the usual banter. The first was a simple 6 shot group on the 100m prone zero targets, secondly, also 100m prone was a 'hind herd-like' timed/precision target devised by another Committee member Simon (SRvet on here) where one had 30 seconds to shoot at 4x 1" bulls followed by an un-timed 3 shot group on a 5th 1" bull. Finally there was a roebuck target with 3 shots from the bench at 165m at that and a zero target then 3 shots from 100m prone or seated and then 70m standing off sticks.

    Thanks again to all who organised and attended.

    Hopefully next time I can join you. I was looking out of the hospital window at the sun shining and trying to partake -albeit mentally- to all the joy you guys mush have been having.
