1.

Drink a lot more water.

(Consider renting a water cannon for weekend).

2.

Not be tight and spend that £15 on a pair of Purdey socks.

(I was never going to spend that on sweets was I? Actually thinking about it I should have bought more water).

3.

Not be envious at Claire Zambuni’s various sporting escapades.

(Remembering at all times to develop office plot to steal her Purdey Sporter and continually forget to give it back).

4.

Meet even more readers. It was great to meet so many and find out their thoughts on the magazine.

5.

Supply the Irish gundog team with three parcels of the magazine, rather than this year’s two.

(You can never have too many issues of the Shooting Gazette after all).
