2015 GP2 (NWEFTA)

May 15 2015

For the second GP of the season we went to Tawd Vale FTC to what felt like the centre of a wind turbine! On lane one I managed a kill on a 50 yard target after giving 12" to the left! A crazy day in terms of wind although towards the last 30 minutes of the PM session the wind dropped enough to let me miss 4 on the trot with absolutely no excuses!

Not so well attended today by NOFTC but the C grade (Or soon to be C grade shooters!) braved the long drive up the M6 to what we down here would consider the distant north! 

I think its fair to say we all suffered at the hands of this course with Josh and Tony shooting 14 a piece and myself with a 26,this will sadly reflect in our standings in the GP season so far not helped by a brilliant performance from Keith Gilyard (NEFTA) & Dan Eley (SEFTA) both scoring 41 in the PM session!!

One highlight from the day was one of my shooting partners being a NRSA standing coach! Got some good tips that hopefully will help me with my abysmal silhouette shooting performance (Only 6 at this round although I did beat Martin Calpin again so not all is lost :-))

Next GP is the North Oxon GP so we have some planning to do before the 31st!
