On saturday 23 November i pulled the BAF Novice for the first time.I faced some very hard hitters i had never pulled before.But it was well worth the effort as it gave me a real insight as to the strength and intensity of many pullers which i need to equal if i am to make progress as i have now reached a level where i know how to give them a taste of their own medicine but some are so quick off the mark they have you down before i have a chance to put up a fight.That is the great challenge i am aiming to overcome as i know i can do it,and i am working on this with my secret pulling device which i believe is the only one in the UK which is a closely guarded secret i do not wish to reveal for obvious reasons! Because of the delay in the delivery of this my training prior to the BAF Novice was not up to the level i wanted it to be,but now my secret pulling device is fully operational,it will begin to make a real impression on my strength and pulling ability as i am a firm believer in both pulling on my own at the table with my secret pulling device,and with others in the usual way as in this way i feel i can achieve my ambitions to make waves in this game as now i have been pulling for just over a year i have established my name on the circuit and have became known as "MR RATTLESNAKE" in response to the intense hissing noise i make when pulling hard (which i was totally unaware of until someone mentioned it to me!) And having sucessfully organised my first ever comp (which i also pulled in!) on December 7th this is another aspect of our sport i aim to suceed in! as i have all the right contacts & venues at my disposal through my work with GLL.Now that 2013 is nearly over, i am looking foward to 2014 which i feel will be my best year so far and will begin with the New Year Cup (which was my debut comp a year ago!) But this time round with the effects of pulling on my secret pulling device i hope the results of training on this will filter through and produce results that will really make an impression!
