Airsoft Surgeon Championship 2020 Shield Cup All Set This Weekend
11 Feb 2020
The first big major event in the Action Air/Airsoft Practical shooting world will take place this weekend --- the Airsoft Surgeon Championship 2020 Shield Cup. For the first time ever, a major airsoft tournament will take place within a big annual trade event called the Great British Shooting Show. Both events will be held at the National Exhibition Centre (NEC) in Birmingham on the 14th to the 16th of February 2020.
Airsofters can visit the British Shooting Show to check out hunting, shooting, and airsoft gear that will be on display at the event as but most importantly watch some of the finest action air shooters in the world. It is also chance for the visiting public unfamiliar with Action Air to learn more about the sport and how they can get into it. With thousands of people expected to be at the event, it is a big opportunity for its promotion.
A total of 92 action air shooters representing Great Britain, Portugal, Hong Kong, Germany, Poland, Switzerland, Belgium, France, Ireland, and Bulgaria will be participating in the main Match of the event and 15 shooting for the RO Pre-Match. For the shooters, the organisers have this advisory:
