Well, the banking at Lonato sure is big!!!! You can see the size of it in this photo quite reasonably. The interesting thing is that I am told – whether it be true or not – that the banking for the Olympics in London will have to be bigger!!! Help!!! Where is all the stuff going to come from – and then go to when the event is over? Maybe that’s the legacy – a huge pile of slurry spreading over Greenwich. Oh won’t they love the shooters after that?
Again it was sunny, but the old Scots coach took no chances and kept a minimum of 4 layers on at all times – even when having a shot and complaining constantly about how sore his shoulder was!!! That may be the excuse for the high (ish) gun position! Still you cannot hide class. Talking of which Joe Neville turned up with Caroline and had a couple off station 8 with a borrowed right handed gun. Hit them both needless to say – even with the sun in his eyes!!!
Lonato is a big ground but nothing that we couldn’t do in this country given the will.
Here’s a couple of photos to amuse yourselves whilst you are programming for future competitions.
