2014 Comm Games Update#05
Another day at Bisley.
It can be a real leveler when the tricky winds come by and you are on the top of Stickledown at 1000yds thinking how on earth am I going to get out of this with some credibility. Some of us did ok, some not so ok. A lot depended on when you were drawn to shoot and also whether you could get in step with some big wind changes and then having to make a wind choice, then fire within 45 seconds!!
We shot 300 & 600 as well. John got a 49.9@ 300, Mike got a bit of a #$/^&* at 1000 and John M had a steady day as did I with a wee highlight for me scoring 50.9 in the 600yd Wimbledon for second place. So we are all not at the bottom of the Grand agg. Stage 1 (15 @ 300yds) of the St George tomorrow plus local teams matches then stage 1 of the Queens on Thurs. The Aust Team kindly had us over for barby tonite. Lots of Fosters, sausage and steak. Was good.
Sorry folk. The Grand Agg also includes stage 1 of the St George (300yds, 15shots) and stage 1,2 & 3 of the Queens (300, 500 & 600yds, 7shots) plus the 600 & 900. I assumed the stage 1 events were seperate to the Grand. So a lot of oppotunities for good and maybe not so good results.
