Re: Canberra Queens

run up was good, the rain held off, but some mean flukey winds on the first arvo 600
i am still a bit emotional about that .... but the 500 & 800s were good

i just shot the 2 days. i read they cancelled this arvo due to inclement weather. glad i am not huddling down there in my tent !

Re: 6mm Dasher ammo for sale

Ben, I really appreciate the late night marketing tips but every time you post here it bumps the ad up to the top, maybe it would be fairer to the other posters to keep your opinions to yourself.
