As I say Dan, that was the original plan to hold it there. I've been to the Worlds in '04, '05, '06, '08, '10, '11 and '12 and last year I met my first NZ shooter who has travelled from NZ to attend the Worlds. I'm also led to believe there was also 1 at the Worlds in SA.

It's good to spread the championships around the countries, but it should go to those that frequently and regularly attend in numbers. SA deserved to have it in '09 as they have been a force on the FT scene since '06.
People won't attend this just because of the costs, its also the issues around the host country's lack of contribution to the WFTF scene.
I believe also that the 12ft/lb comp is a token sideshow to the main FAC event.

Anyway just my opinion.
He who never made a mistake never learned!
He who never missed never shot!
