Don't forget the next chance you'll have to win this lovely (perpetual) trophy is at the next 'Uncle Barry Memorial Meeting', being held at the end of May (to coincide with Barry's birthday), near Shaftesbury, Dorset.

moving house, March we took the keys and it took me 52days solid to move, since then and now converting the land for horses, building paddocks, menage, rides, gallops, jumps, stables and sat for hours on a tractor etc but I will get a 200metre range out of it that has just been signed of by the ole bill

Nice that sounds great Kim, you'll need to get some pics up when you get a chance please.

200m home range, that sounds alright that does!

Did you have to jump through many hoops to get it signed off, what did they insist on as a backstop and what calibre is it cleared up to Kim?

I imagine a huge mound of compacted dirt is probably the easiest but would you need to periodically dismantle it and decontaminate the soil?

The Uncle Barry Memorial should have been being held right now........as it would have been his 74th Birthday yest.

Yet something else this bloody virus has put the kibosh on. :(

Even though I'm not down in Dorset this year, it hasn't stopped me remembering him over this weekend.

R.I.P Barry, you are missed,  but not forgotten.

All OK here in Cirencester, moved here back in September got settled ish and C-19 arrived enabling me to complete what was required.
just two daughters at home with me and the wife, the three of them keep me on my toes. Moved from having the 9 horses and 30 acres to a semi-rural bungalow as the 'big girls blouse' turned 60 last April.
Semi (80%) retired now but still do www.artisanrifles.co.uk stuff which gives me an outlook away from pottering.

I trust all is well with the old team and Uncle Barry's land is all up and together? lake full of fish

All the best from me to all...
