A new format of event, which will be a cross between team games and individuals. Jim, Adam and Martin
have all tried these games at various times, usually one on one challenges. They are brilliant fun and a bit different to the usual 6 events.
This year we are expecting throwers of quite different abilities so the teams will be pairs of mixed abilities! A new trophy that the winning pair can have marked with their names every year.
