CANCELLED DUE TO HEAVY SNOW
NEFTA Winter League - Round 5 - DRAFTC (to be held at Anston)
Venue for this shoot is Anston
Just a reminder!
whats the snow like up Anston way just wondering if it will be worth trying to get there from my neck of the woods or snow drift
has any descisions been made as to whether or not this is still on due to weather.

Just watched BBC Look North there are 200 vehicle stuck on the A57 at North Anston. Thats one junction north of the shoot. We should be able to get there, but getting off the main road to park might be a problem.
i would have thought common sense would prevail and shoot be cancelled...i,m under 16 inches of snow and aint travelling 130 miles [each way] in those conditions,it aint just a local shoot its a large regional shoot where large numbers of shooters compete,and if large numbers can,t attend then alot of the locals who only have short distances to travel will capitalise on points dropped....try and keep it as a level playing field and pull the shoot or try and put it on one of the xmas shoots arranged.atb fred
well there is still two more days of weather to be had who knows. i reckon friday tea time make decistion see how weather and roads coming along.
I believe the plan is for the situation to be reviewed on Friday and an update circulated via forums etc.
Just spoken to Calp and we have decided that the shoot is to be cancelled
Please can someone either send me Phillip Johannsons number or let him know that the shoot has been cancelled please
Good decision Simon - lots of snow come down this week and it will take some shifting.
Gutted I've just warmed the dommi up.
Its the right decision, albeit a disappointing one. Looking forward to the rescheduled event, I hope it doesn't clash with Midland winter league, but I suppose it will have to.
This shoot has now been re-sheduled for 12/12/10 (Weather Permitting).
same weekend as syweel Mr D
Well I know which one I would rather shoot, but I've got to go for the points unfortunately.
yes i know its unfortunate but its out of our control really, i would hate to loose a round. any way lets hope the chuffing snow goes quick, and we will all meet up again and g buy raffle tickets
Same here Neil. Looks like my next trip to anston will be for the aston champs.
