December Indoor sessions cancelled

Unfortunately the remaining indoor sessions for December have been cancelled due to Brockington requiring the hall for exams.

This also affects the planned Portsmouth Winter League shoot scheduled for Wednesday 12th December.  The scores shot on Wednesday 5th December will be submitted instead.

In the meantime, get your big coat out and hope the stormy weather keeps away at the weekends.
