I've also had confirmed that there will be a PCP and Springer Team, (8 max each), and that the zero range will just be a walk from the courses (it had been indicated it was elsewhere).
There was an ad hoc meeting at the weekend, and subject to any disagreement we'll be publishing the selection procedure at the weekend, along with how you register your interest. You will be expected to make a quick decision and at the next stage be able to supply a deposit at short notice. Expect all country allocations to be decided by January, and the qualification to be at the earliest convenience on the national calendar next year.
As we may have a spring team allocation, I expect to have some dedicating themselves to getting a strong one together. However we will know if this is feasible ahead of qualification so people will be able to make a more informed choice.
The registration list will be made public.
so does that mean they have reserved me a place rob?
I have asked the Wafta WFTF rep to enquire as wales too is likley to want more places than allocated for germany, but I am also a member of two english clubs so would appreciate your inside contacts.
Is it top three in each class that have had their palces secured?
ie, the top three youth are in, Vets etc
