We found the course easily from sat nav and the NFAS signs. We parked up, got out and even at 8.30am the sun was hot..yes I know 8.30, we left a bit early.
After registering and getting a coffee we found Mark Duerden to have a look at his new target faces . They are very clear and look fantastic and he gave us a few to test prior to our shoot in September.
The course was 2×20 and we’ve not done this format before and probably should paid more attention on the first round to help with the second, which we didn’t and both of us scored worse on the second half. But that could have been down to the heat, man it was hot, hot, hot.
The terrain was much tougher than it first appeared and the targets were well placed. They must have worked really hard to clear some of the paths as the rhododendron bushes were massive. I have also found my nemesis, bloody ducks, 2 on the course and couldn’t have hit them if they’d been the size of Big Bird. The short targets were great fun but my favourite was the leopard, 100 yards out in the middle of a field.
Thoroughly enjoyed the day and well worth the hour and a half journey. Will definitely go again. I finished 4th and Ken finished third in the TBH style, and although Ken got a medal (in fact a really nice leather keyring for 3rd) he was still 100pts off first, so more work to do on our NFAS adventure.
Thanks to all involved for all your hard work
