    Just to highlight that the course is proving popular and in order to secure your place a deposit is required.

    Can you please confirm your booking for the mid range courses 2nd & 3rd Nov 2013 by paying a 30% deposit.

    Regards JCS

    Update - I went on the Saturday and had an excellent time. As I got further out, I struggled with the wind, especially at 640 yds,

    I've been on one of Bradley's days before and as before this day was well organised. The sleet made shooting in the afternoon quite challenging.

    Dropbox - Mid range results the ranges are on the bottom corner of the photos.

    I look forward to getting to another of Bradley's events next year and having a crack at the gongs.

    Regards
