ASC = Auckland Shooting Club
As per a public Facebook post, published yesterday (https://www.facebook.com/1313080602124534/posts/2016606531771934?sfns=mo):
“The Court of Appeal has found in favour of the Vipassana Trust.

For some this will be significant, and very welcomed news, for others it may not be welcomed. Either way, it is still significant news which we felt ought to be shared. The link above is a public link which you can visit, even without a facebook account.
