GVA / AIUK Ironman 2017 – Postponed


ironmanWell despite a good turnout of Archers, looking to blow away  Christmas with the Ironman Frostbite we all were defeated by the weather.

It was a warm sunny morning with strong winds and even stronger gusts, but the torrential overnight rain left the range too wet to safely  tether the targets.

Thank you to those who turned up to set up the range, participate or indeed more importantly make the Bacon Butties.

GVA and AIUK are looking to rearrange the event in January and will post updates on the
AIUK Forum, GVA website and email all archers who have provided contact details.
