This was my first visit to West Devon and what a great venue it is, Nigel and his team have obviously studies the rule book every carefully and used the ground they have to excellent effect.
My shoot was not quite what I had hoped for, what started out as a Masterclass turned into a disaster as my Walther decided to self adjust the velocity down to 335fps. Meanwhile the Masterclass was given by Tony Fouracres who’s 35 x 40 was a pleasure to watch.
Thank’s to all at West Devon, especially the ladies handling catering, fine cake ladies, fine cake, mmmmmmmmmm.

A great big THANK YOU to West Devon for a great day and special thanks to the ladies who done a sterling job of keeping everyone well fed and watered all day! Also, on a personal note, to the guys who were thrown in the deep end with ‘the paperwork’, you did a great job gentlemen. (Sorry guys, I didn’t get your email addresses)
