    G'day Mike and Texan Fly Shooters,
    Find attached a combined top 20 (your top 10 and our top 10) scores from your last match shot on the 21st Sept and our last match shot in Canberra on the 28th..

    Sorry mate but we gave you guys a little tickle up again!!

    Your last match for the year will correspond exactly with our Queensland state tiltles shot in Brisbane on the 19th October...so... we'll go again with a score comparison and see how it unfolds.
    Regards,
    Belly (Australia)

    Hopefully in the next year or 2 I can make this happen but I want to come over and shoot in your Texas fly shoot from Australia (just need a few things to fall into place big time haha)
    Anyone know if there are any big show stoppers to bringing my gun and ammo into the US etc.. Might as well start doing some home work about it
    Cheers

    I had looked at your match report on the fly forum and knew we were in deep trouble. Congratulations for a convincing win! You indeed handed us a serious whooping. We are still smarting but as they always say. Wait til next time.

    Don't bring a rifle. I'll let you borrow one. It'll be all tuned up. I promise.

    I composed that with deliberate sarcasm, but I really am serious. I'm sure we Texans could get you something competitive to shoot & save you the hassle of bringing everything. Just give us some notice and we'll arrange it. I'll take the lead.

    I think you Texans have us Aussies well & truly within reach ....
    For the short amount of time you lot have been shooting the FLY shoots your scores are already up there.
    I think Mike & his team will be sitting back with a smile knowing it will not be long till you round us up.

    Cheers Ken.

    Ken, most of the Texans shooting these matches are not novices as we shoot various mid to longer range matches and have for a number of years. Skills and knowledge do translate from discipline to discipline. But your fly shoot is a hoot and has it's own twists that have to be learned. Some things take longer than others to learn and some folks learn faster than the rest of us.
    One thing for sure is that it is hard to beat anybody at their own game.
    Thank you guys for sharing with us. And thanks to Mike Cockcroft for making it possible.
    Joe

    Looks like we may get cooler weather for the Oct. 19 fly shoot.
    We have been shooting in conditions that make the target look like its behind a bowl of cream of chicken soup while the no talent Australians have had perfect conditions. We will clean up in October!! LOL
    I believe we have come a long way in two years. Actually, its has taken the Australians 30 years to get where we are after two. Must be an issue with the southern hemisphere.

    Remember its all in fun, don't take my posts to seriously.

    Looks like we might catch some better conditions this coming Saturday. If we do, look out Aussies! Red headed step children, rented mules, and the blokes down under are in serious trouble!
