SWEFTA League – Final Round – Dartmoor

Delayed by a week but well worth the wait was the final round of the 2018 SWEFTA League at Dartmoor Marksmen. The course layout by necessity had not changed since our last visit but the position and sizes of many of the targets certainly had… easier? NO! Enjoyable? Yes indeedy.  The weather was kind and […]

SWEFTA League round 9 – South Dorset

Well you can always trust the folks at South Dorset to provide something different… no, not the brand new courses built at their brand new ground… the weather!

SWEFTA League Round 5 – West Devon

Weather more different from the last round at Buckley Wood it would be hard to imagine. West Devon was a picture of spring, with sunshine all day and a little cooling breeze which hardly caused any havoc on the FT course at all. Both the FT and HFT courses were up to the usual WD […]

SWEFTA League Round 4 – Buckley Wood

I guess we should always be grateful for small mercies, Sunday’s mercy being that the 20 MPH wind that was forecast never arrived, although the wind that we did have along with the rain was trouble enough. Still, there was a cracking good turn out, added to by some visitors from Wales for the first […]

SWEFTA League Round 3 – Mendip

I’m afraid I wasn’t there myself, but the weather was superb as were both the courses, so well done to Tony and his team for all the hard work. Also thanks to Ann Farbrother for helping out with stats, this is part of what SWEFTA is all about. 2018 – Rd 03 – Shoot Scores […]
