Sixty years of champions in the UK’s longest running event and in one of the longest running centres. Sixty years on freefall machines and the first one on String will make it an interesting event. It’s the same sixty foot of slide and glide after all but different pinaction at the end of the lane.
Thanks to QubicaAMF there is more money in the pot this year and as always, whoever wins or places will have earned, their names in history and in the Hall of Fame records.
