Hi Dave , it was interesting that you should dredge up the Steyr team from way back because it ended up on my plate. I dont think you can have an unoffficial manufacturers team for the reason stated in para 2 above . However I am not sure I quite agree with the first para though , but it seems to take a hell of a lot of time and energy to try and sort it out . I ran out of both of them. I managed to get 6 sets of " Dickies " trousers and jackets for the team FOC with the help of a friend who was a shooter at that time . That was the easy bit , then it started to get to complicated with regard to the above. So I had to drop it
