    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:eek:

    I believe the plan is for the situation to be reviewed on Friday and an update circulated via forums etc.

    Good decision Simon - lots of snow come down this week and it will take some shifting.

    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. :(

    Well I know which one I would rather shoot, but I've got to go for the points unfortunately.
