Yes it did and it was a blast! I blew the first two rounds Saturday as I was stressed over the flying site. I worked tooth and nail to get back into the wood and boy oh boy that was a wonderful shootout at the end for second place and the best pilot won it, which BTW was not me!

As of right now they are not available. We didn't sell enough last year to use the same supplier so we're looking for someone else. I'll post an update if anything changes.
