Additional Information

PLEASE READ THIS. As always your shot MUST be entered into the group PRIOR to entering the challenge. Shots not complying with this rule will be deleted without notice…sorry it is too time consuming to firstly check the shots are in group and then to have to BM everyone who does not comply and believe us there are lots who don’t on every challenge!
