Taking into consideration age and experience, it's a good score none the less :D i'm sure ron will be worried now that he has a serious competitor :shock:
Well done on having a great day out :shock: :D


He'll take 9.5.

Next time out I'll look for a place for him to plank or batman :crazy: :crazy:
