SWEFTA Garden Bench Rest – Round 6

Well, the weather has had a dramatic change of heart over the last few weeks, at least it has here in North Somerset and the wind during Round 6 of the GBR has been kinder. Of course the sun always shines and there is never a breath of wind where our BR guru Paul Salmon […]

SWEFTA Garden Bench Rest – Round 5

Have we shot another three cards already? We most certainly have. Summer weather and a lot of practice seem to have slowly but surely pushed the scores gradually up, at least for some of us, Paul Salmon continues to post high scores, but this round he has been pushed, and on one occasion beaten by […]

SWEFTA – Garden Bench Rest – Round 4

Some have come, some have gone, some have come and gone but the hard core nutters remain.

The conditions were somewhat tricky to read, with a swirling wind, light rain and some heavy hail (proper cornish weather). Many people, myself included found the conditions very hard to read, and for the last […]

SWEFTA Winter League – Round 3 – Ashcombe AGC

Was a very blustery day out at Ashcombe AGC, however… The shoot was executed beautifully, some fantastic testing shots some that really did test people. The first targets on the course was cracking 54-yard starling with very little plate, it’s actually a harder shot to hit the plate that the kill so I will take […]
