Surprise extra 10 targets were racks of five kneeling and standing, I got 9/10 and won though it was a close run with Rex. All started to unravel near the end as my feet and fingers started turning to blocks of ice.
Screw Stalingrad... :o

Well done Col, and what could be better practice for round 5.

Hopefully less memorable for me as my experiences on the 27th prompted me to get a better pair of boots that were actually waterproof. Still leaves hands but hopefully I can sort something a bit more extreme for the 14th though the long range forecast predicts rain not cold at the moment... ;D

About the same as me at ETL - thought boots water proof, found out they weren't when walking between areas. Hands are 'toasty', as picked up a pair of ex French army 'sniper mitts' for £6.99 posted, add to them a hand warmer in each. ;) ;D

Mine were fine but was told when I got them to re-spray them yearly.

My 'old' boots were only a year old and had been sprayed with some Nikwax treatment I found kicking around at work and seemed to be ok, but the combination of slipping and sliding through the liquid mud going down to Springfield and then 4 hours of windblown sleet basically did them in.
The new ones are supposed to be Stalingrad Grade apparently, we shall see on the 14th... ;D
Gloves wise I've been trying to find a pair of insulated, waterproof fishing gloves that a mate had but so far to no avail.

Now got leather boots, supposedly waterproof from the start, but have started 'work' on them so the leather, at least, will be waterproof, just hope that the soles stand up to it
