As you can see the website is coming back to life after being hacked earlier this month. The records area and the coaches list will take a little longer to restore however as the programs need to be re-written to conform to the latest software used to build the site. All the record data is in-tact but it isn't going to be a quick job to rewrite the code. I have uploaded a summary of the Competition records and the All-events records will follow shortly.
UPDATE: The records are back on-line but at the moment they cannot be updated.
Details of the HAA Longbow Championships 2016 on 24th September have been added to the Calendar page
