1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

    Some of us are going to Furnace Mill this Sunday. Following a chat with Ed we discussed an idea of running Sunday Shoots as a club gathering but to change the format a bit he might allow us to mix the course up a bit to reduce any repetition. This could make things very interesting for us midlanders who are looking to start up afresh and possibly put a team together for the nationals.

    Early days yet but I will talk to Ed again this weekend and hopefully come up with some idea's. Either way if you fancy a shoot we'll be there for around 10 for a cuppa and a sarnie and we might have some good news on the day.

    The alternatives are a lot closer and a hell of a lot less work organising things. Our meets last years started at Furnace Mill. The advantages are there's a permanent plinking range, course, clubhouse, cafe, toilets and a field that we might be able to hold next years summer meet at.

    Hope no one minds (well Ed might), but I've knocked up a scorecard for Furnace Mill, otherwise they're 7p each. Something to do while I wait for my F$$##!G iPhone to update.

    it's a shame if WAR is gone forever, but the plus side apart from what Mick said is that FM isn't that far from WAR and the regulars might carry on meeting.

    I guarantee Terry we will stick together and put a team forward for the nationals. WAR is just a name, it takes the people to make a club; not a name.

    A good idea to vary the course - on a lot of the lanes there are already 2 targets, one not in use / visible, if ed put 2 targets on each post A and B, ie 30 pegs 60 targets this gives you multiple options for a course shoot all A's all B's A then B etc - rough wedge use 2 targets on each peg but only on 15 pegs. It saves a lot of getting up and down so you do the course quicker - may be worth a mention

    cant make sunday going to midland game fair weston parklooking for a small gun for my daughter , but will be there friday
