It's hard to feel sorry for these people if the club was there first... they knew they were moving next door to it... The people living in the house should buy their own safety fence - problem solved...

Well I must that if they are hitting the balls that good, then they should be signed up for the English cricket team.

As for the home owners who moved there knowing there was a cricket club there, good! they are the type who say " ohhh, I live beside a cricket club" but are surprised when a ball comes through their window!!??
What did they think people do at a cricket club?

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

Maybe they thought it was a club for crickets

Damnit, I feel dirty for agreeing with a bloody Tory!
Club was there first, you need to adapt.

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

People never cease to amaze me. They will move near a shooting range or car race track and complain about the noise. Developers build new neighborhoods out in the country surrounded by cow, horse, pig and chicken farms and the idiot yuppies move in then complain about the smell. Who would've thought animals smell...duh? One couple even complained because they built a grill outside, a few feet from a fence that contained horses, and the horses pooped while they were trying to eat.

My personal favourite is the people who buy homes across the road from the CLEARLY SIGNED Dakabin "Refuse Recreation Facility" and then campaign tirelessly to have it closed because "it smells". A dump Refuse Recreation Facility  that's been there for over 20 years.

Exactly.. Like city people that buy holiday homes in the country or move to the country and then complain about the farm vehicles slowing down the traffic or the pheasants making too much noise.

This time of year, the pheasants round these parts tend to keep fairly quiet and not draw attention to themselves! Peacocks, on the other hand........!

Yep.  See it all the time here in farm country.  And my shooting club - that has been in the same location for almost 100 years has to deal with its new neighbors all of the time.

Some people think thier s  **  t does not smell....and are surprised when they realise every ones does!

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

And for those who buy a house near an airport, just a reminder....those big ****  off things which take off, do not do "mute".
