Unfortunately it's not always an easy job for the course setters as conditions change throughout the day & what looks like a fantastic shot when setting a course can be a nightmare for someone with a few lanes to shoot.

Therefore for all the remaining rounds in 2010 all targets will be painted with a black "kill zone" & either a yellow or white face plate.
We changed to this colour scheme a while back and it has speeded up target acquisition tremendously.
Great idea.
