Thanks for the 'breaking news' Iain...that's some outrageously good shooting tongueout

There hasn't been much talk on here about the 'TR' part of the Imperial - I've been reading the blog on the NRA site, and it looks like our very own Gaz M had a good meeting...

...so TR guys; how did it go?

I wuz ill - luckily there is not an emoticon showing the sort of ill I was.

Either I caught a stomach bug (which seemed to be going around some areas of camp) or ate some dodgy meat.

Apart from that it wasn't really a good meeting for me but hey ho there's always next year . . .

love

Karen

SteveE did very well too - another 105 in the National Match for England and won the TWP Agg as well as shooting a tie shoot against the Palma Captain Jane Messer for the Century.

And now some news from t'other end!!

I was there!!

457th in the Grand with possible in The Times. To quote the Olympic motto - it's not the winning, it's the taking part' Yea! b*****ks. 500 mile round trip, £360 odd entry fee. 1 x hangover and lots of grubby washing to do!! I should have done better. It was good fun and company.

I know I got the bum squaddings 'cos I always got the wind!

Seriously, many congrats to Richard Jeens and to all UKFB'ers who were there.
