2007 tennessee appprox 100 shooters 2008 N Ireland again approx 100 shooters and last year SA again approx 100 shooters. I can not ever remember their being less than 120 shooters ever attending the euro's this year being 145+ now this being half as many again as the last World Championships what would be the point in turning this into another poorley attended competition with nothing to do but shoot eat and drink?
Ps Northern Ireland as probably has got the strictist gun laws in the world but getting the ticket was simple and free. some of the lads have had loads of hassle and added costs getting their guns into europe.
Quite right Steve, from the results I have it shows in 2007 there were 153 shooters, 2008 = 155 and in 2009=149 so always a very well attended event.
