The comp will be shot in the area that it was last year,no surprise there i hear you say BUT.
There will be a suttle difference,the tree's have gone.
The tree's in the area have been removed stump's and all,and replaced with grass.
No more struggling in the dark, infact you may want to bring some sunglasses
Just thought you may like to know this info,has we seem to cover all sort's of trivial dribble on this site.
see you there
Lets get this straight. Not all the trees have been removed. There is an open glade within the woods. The course will follow its normal line but within the the trees, shooting across open space to the trees on the other side. The longer targets will be in trees for the majority of the course and short and long targets will be in trees at the end of the course. The wind will still be tricky to read but the conditions will be much lighter. Me and Cedric still believe we can put an interesting course out.
Sorry it is awkward to explain what it is like, but I can ensure you it will be nothing like shooting in a field.
