    Ironman 2017 - the Aftermath :D

    Thank you to everyone who turned out today for this year's Ironman Tournament and a massive thank you to the clubs and volunteers who make it happen!

    Unfortunately, we had to make a call at Bristol as to whether the shoot should go ahead due to safety concerns.
    The field at GVA is very exposed and wind was gusting at up to 65 kmh; combined with saturated ground meaning we were unable to peg targets securely it was decided to postpone the shoot until January. I know this is frustrating for those that were able to shoot today as you want to see the results but I believe it's better to have a delay than a bunch of smashed arrows and possible injury. Please keep tuned for details on the rearranged Bristol shoot. For those unable to make the rearranged date a refund will be available.

    Thanks again to everyone and hope you have a fantastic New Year

    The best we could manage in Lancashire was 53kph - shoot well at the re-arranged event!

    Better to be safe than sorry.

    When it is rearranged will entries be open again? I couldn't make today but depending on the January date I may be able to.

    We had a great day at Pendle & Samlesbury, despite the rain, mud, rain and wind. I think the gusts only went to 40mph....!
