James Head has received the following e-mail from Rob Meatyard at Dartmoor Marksmen. With regret I wish to announce that Sundays shoot at Dartmoor is cancelled. The weather forecast is for 40+mph winds and heavy rain.
I am currently entering all the shooters names from last weeks SWEFTA competition at Purbeck into the shooting partners spreadsheets and I would like to remind you all of Rule 2 of the Shooting and Grading rules: YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO PARTNER WITH SOMEONE FROM YOUR OWN CLUB. Anyone who does must […]
I have just seen on Facebook that there will be no food available at the Dartmoor shoot this Sunday. There will be tea and coffee and some cake (thank goodness), so please make sure to bring some food with you.
The format for the Trophy shoot will be 09:00 kick off as usual and the presentations will be at lunchtime (hopefully before the rain). Those that wish to shoot the second course will be able to after that. Forecast shows there might be heavy rain in the afternoon tomorrow, but I doubt it could be […]
The weather this weekend is forecast to be pretty dreadful and so the committee at Dartmoor have postponed this Sunday’s shoot by a week. The Dartmoor shoot will now be Sunday Sept 30th. Please let all your clubmates know.

As we are just a week away from the start of the SWEFTA season, I think now is the time to release details of the new, new, new…. new random partnering system, it is very simple and will make very little difference to the booking in system and the time it takes to book in, […]
