Wind has decided to jinx a lot of shoots today especially the early details this morning.  Somehow the great and mighty among the competitors managed to shoot through that and not miss a point!


Ibis scores mixed today with Peter still holding the honours though a lot more points off today than yesterday.  Full scores update tomorrow.


Our trials and tribulations with power supply continue with no power at the moment despite having a generator!  Dinner by candle light tonight by the look of it!


Tom and Graham have arrived today boosting our numbers by 100%.


All to play for tomorrow including the infamous Corporation.

Happy 60th Jo Wright

No not his age but the number of consecutive appearances at the NRA Imperial; remarkable!  According to the man himself the overall total is over 75.  Jo will not be shooting the whole week but doing the major events that could lead to a free shoot.  We wish you all the best Jo.  By the way is age is 94.


Power failure at the club has given us an interesting 24 hours and we now back online with a generator.


Star performer of the day is Peter having dropped only one point all day and clean on the first Grand Aggregate shoot this afternoon.


all gets serious tomorrow.
