    Guys

    Just laying out a new course today and have included 5 plates in accordance with 2009 course format guidelines.

    i noticed that in the 2010 rules that have been posted on the UKAHFT site that it is referring to 30 pegs again. Have we given up on the plates?

    Info takes a long time to get this far north.

    Yes we've decided to remove the plate shots.

    They were originally intended to create a harder shot for everyone by making you come up on your hands but it turned out to penalise the junior shooters, we'd also seen a trend away from making these shots difficult & just throwing a disk down at a convenient spot.
