I got in contact with Mike from Big Shoot in April he gave me the quote in very short order, but I was unable to nail down the particulars until I'd reached England...a week before we were supposed to go. I ended up working with the guys over the phone and through the website to book in a time that worked perfectly for our group, we had an awesome time, learned a lot and even enjoyed some friendly competition.
