    The short answer to your question is "No"

    Please read the very first post on the game - it explains what the game is all about.

    Why play wind as a game.Come and live on Romney Marsh in Kent.You'll get all the wind you need. Most shooters down here cant
    hit a thing if its NOT windy.

    I can remember shooting at the Romney Marsh Club back in the naughties. Right on the edge of the sea with lanes cut through acres of brambles. Depending on where you were you'd have zero wind at the gate and 30mph at the target, 30mph at the gate and the same at the target and everything inbetween.
    I can distinctly picture a long shot and I've followed the pellet all the way to the kill only to have a vicious wind take it totally clear of the plate and probably only in the last 6'.

    Worlds kelmarsh.
    3,5 mill dots 30 yrds
    Hit the paddle to the right as it was a left side wind.jusr a rattle to the paddle
    And did fall.
    Still think about that shot as you could see the pellet bend in. But a 3.5 mill dots it looks like some one else had shot the target. Just went through the gap on the right.
    Partner said to call.
    In the wind and weather that day.
    A waste of time

    I was just about to ask for some advice, found this, no wonder I have been missing everything now the wind is picking up!

    Thanks!
