Default Worlds

First of all, all I can do is apologise for what occurred on Monday, but there was no way I was willing to risk anyone’s safety in those conditions and then on hearing the show was closed that made my mind up, I know a few are disappointed and feel for the overseas shooters who spent a lot of money coming to the event and to just shoot 30 targets is not great.

Also I know a lot of people didn’t agree with the trophies being given out, but what do you do with £2000 worth of trophies that have dates on etc.

I dare say some people with get a rise out of what happened and say not well organised etc but we can’t predict the weather, but I hope most of you will understand the call we had to make.
