As per every year, we have a waiting list, but what I find very frustrating is the number that say yes please, put me on the waiting list and then do not want to join when you contact them, or do not even bother to respond!

    I must be a rarity... due to Covid, although i could not get to one clubs marsh due to distance, I did more on my local marsh than usual as I wasn't using up my time either beating or on a pheasant syndicate... got out more than other seasons... can we do it again 🙂
  14. Chris Green did a bit on one of his DVD's showing the difference between a go pro and a 'professional' camera looking at a goose silhouette at 40 yards.... with the go pro it looked far further away!
