Default WFTF some info

Only 12 teams competed last year 2010
7 of those countries entered had the full team of 8 shooters.
Estonia, N.Ireland and Bulgaria had 5, Lithuania and Austria 4.

Other RGB shooters who attended
3 x Wales
2 x Norway
1 x Macedonia
1 x Slovakia
1 x Canada
1 x Brazil

5 x senior
8 x juniro
8 x women
12 x spring

139 competitors in total.

Looking back the most nations that ever attended a WFTF Championship was in 2005, there were 13 teams, most of which only had 4 shooters. The biggest attenance was in 2005, over 300 competitors. The WFTF should be inclusive and not exclusive IMO, if there were a final coherent set of core rules with regard to equipment and course format, then the Championship event each year will become more and more farcical.

On a final note last year was excellent and well organised, minor problem with targets but overall excellent. I hope this can be said about Italy, indeed that year we saw what was the conclusion to the race to become the first nation to beat the English, however it was not a home nation shooter and no matter what home advantage gives the best always rise to the top

He who never missed never shot!
