FARMING NEWS:- We have finished combining and we have drilled 300 acres of oilseed rape and the crop is just emerging.

We are now hedgecutting and preparing all the arable land ready to drill both winter wheat and winter barley.

We had uninvited “visitors” again last night. They cut the locks on the field gates and drove their FWD vehicle all over our tender new rape crops. The police describe this criminal activity as hare coursing. The truth is ... they are using shotguns, firearms, knives and hunting dogs to kill deer, rabbits and any other animal they can see. Neighbouring farmers are seeing dead badgers on their fields. This illegal activity is happening all over the country and we need more (Police Constables) that are actually able to catch and arrest these criminals. Interestingly, I once showed photos of the carnage that was left on one of the footpaths in one of our fields to the Godstone branch of the RSPCA. They did not even make an effort to reply, let alone try to help ... it is debatable if money raised to fund the RSPCA is actually going to the right causes?. The photos that I showed them was of animals killed in the worst possible way ... I was at the very least expecting a quick phone call or email.

“SHOOTER OF THE DAY” today was without any doubt GEORGE DIGWEED MBE who shot a brilliant 99/100 over a testing course. George straight stands 7 and 8 which were very tricky targets.

Stand 7 was a long quartering left to right off the tower, followed by a right to left fast low target. Stand 8 was a full left to right long crosser, followed by a right to left high looper. These two stands caught most shooters out throughout the day... The multi World Champion straighted both of these stands; The only bird that George missed was his very last target on stand 1 ( A quartering going away target).

Brilliant shooting George; All the best for Hungary (The World Compak)in Galgamacsa near Budapest.

FARMING NEWS:
All the Barley has been cut and we are now well into the oilseed rape. The recent rain has slowed things down but they talk of a heatwave next week, therefore hopefully we will be once again flat out combining. There is never a dull moment on the farm, but Steven and I love farming and in our minds there is no better way of life. It is hard work but it is wonderful to look out of the window and see a constantly different view as the crops change throughout the year. I hope that young people continue to consider farming as a career ... sadly small family farms are disappearing, but there are many ways to make a living from the land as long as you are willing to work hard and enjoy outside work.... And to be totally honest: These days unfortunately there is a lot of record keeping and paperwork!.

Our normally trusty Claas combine is at present being repaired... the engineers have been out all day and I dread the cost involved when the invoice is received!.

The land is already being cultivated to encourage any black grass to germinate. I will continue to update those of you who always enjoy hearing about the ups and downs of farming next week We appreciate your interest and it is particularly rewarding to educate our younger members of society about “where their food comes from”.

52TH EUROPEAN FITASC CHAMPIONSHIPS 2019

We have just returned from the above event which was held in GANT, HUNGARY. The work that had gone into setting up the different shooting ranges was incredible. The presentation was simply perfect... everywhere you walked there was beautiful wood chipped paths throughout the shoot. New purpose built stairs and stands had been built and the organisation including transportation to the different shooting ranges was brilliant. The terrain was like nothing most of us had ever seen before .... it was as though we had landed on the moon and it did bring back very happy memories of the time Steven and I flew by helicopter to the Grand Canyon. The targets were phenomenal.... every layout was so interesting. I just wish that we could pick up the whole terrain where the shoot was held and bring it back to Surrey!.

It was a fabulous shoot and it will most definitely be one of the most memorable events for all the right reasons.

Steven shot with one of the organisers of the shoot Lajos Macsek, as well as shooters from Austria, Russia and Italy.

The winner of the Juniors Christian Camporese followed Steven all four days and it was a pleasure to watch this young man hold it all together to finish Junior European FITASC Champion ...

Christian’s manners were impeccable and it was obvious that he had been brought up well by his caring family who travelled to Hungary to support him.

The layouts were called VERTES FOREST, KRIEGHOFF, GAMEBORE, BLASER, PROMATIC,BERETTA, MVE AND RANGEMASTER.

It was very exciting to see MARK WINSER finish his last shooting position having shot 50 straight. 25/25 on both MVE AND RANGEMASTER. I think that I must have looked more excited than the always so composed Mark knowing that he had now just won the EUROPEAN !. Having watched Steven shoot every single target that was thrown over the four days, I realised how truly amazing Mark’s score was ... finishing on 191/200. I felt so happy and proud of Mark that I could not stop smiling and cheering!. Steven and I remember Mark and his Dad coming to our shoots when he was just a young boy, and it is lovely to see Mark now reaping the rewards of all the time and effort that was put into his shooting... Mark now definitely one of the world’s best shooters. Still young with perfect eye sight, Mark has years of being at the very top of his profession ahead of him. In second place was Mark’s good friend from Hungary Andras Szerdahelyi who shot an excellent 187 and who was sincerely happy to celebrate his friends success. Brilliant shooting Mark and you are such a great ambassador for the sport.

Cheryl Hall won the LADIES EUROPEAN title and the European Cup as well as Team Silver. Great shooting Cheryl.

Another shooter who gained my highest respect was Steve Brightwell who won the VETERANS CLASS and also came 4th overall!. What an incredible achievement and there is no reason why Steve Brightwell could not win the World FITASC Championships at Churchill Shooting Ground in July this year.

The WORLD FITASC CHAMPIONSHIPS is being held at the same venue in Hungary in two years time. God willing, we hope to return to Hungary in 2021. Thank you to all the Federation and organisers including the referees and arbiters, who without you ... there would be no shoot.
