I have only ever met 2 Kiwi's at a Worlds since 2004, I did unfortunately miss SA in 2009 where there were a couple, I believe.
Last year in germany there were 2 (husband and wife) and davey in Norway in 2012.

The Europeans send big teams year on year and the sport is highly popular in that particular continent. Indeed Chile sent a team to Germany last year

Yep I agree with you Conor and thats why 90% of the time it will be in the Northern hemisphere and not in the far, far, far distant land of Kiwis. The next time it comes here is going to be in 20 plus years so really its only a 1 off and properly once in a shooters shooting life time.
The worlds I believe will mainly be a more Europe event but on the odd year should be in the Southern Hemisphere. If this is not the case then it should be the European Ft and not the worlds
Just my humble opinion
