Default Public

There was a few complaints from the public that they couldn't spectate the worlds, but we made the decision that the ground being so muddy it would be unsafe and also competitors guns were at risk with people walking close to the fireline, I nearly had my gun trod on due to someone coming to see how his mate was getting on!!

But next year we will be clearing an area on bravo course from the top gate inside the wood by the hedgerow all the way down to the bottom gate, this way spectators will be close enough to the action and not on top of the shooters

You worked your heart out fella getting a massive comp like that on in that weather ... and you are already thinking of improvements for next year for spectators.

Keep going buddy. Everyone appreciates what you are doing with this sport.
