Sunny, 100 ISO and f8 should result in a shutter speed of about 1/500s. Fast enough take away any blur. I hardly ever go over 1/500s, even with 400mm (although stabilised).
If you still have blurry pictures, either your (auto)focus is messed up, or your (panning-) technique needs some work...

The problem might be very simply Sleekjet as you are using a 300D which does not feature a constant servo AF setting.
If I remember correctly it is supposed to switch from "one shot" to servo when it detects movement of your subject automatically.
So try to fool your camera before you start shooting by focusing on different objects.
Or update the firmware by one of the enhanced(read 10D) versions offered on the internet.
I guess other 300D users will know how it works.
Maybe you can post an example ?
