Thanks must go to Terry Underwood and Syd Payn as our GTMs. Terry was the non-travelling (administrator?!) GTM as he was in a accident and has injured his leg and so couldn't travel and Syd stepped in to be the GTM just prior to travel. Thanks also to Cliff Mallett for looking after the fullbore rifle team and transporting thier rifles to Bisley.
Congratulations to all those who participated.
