Post News regarding 2012 and 2013 WFTF Competitions

Fellow RGB’s,

In response to my April requests for 2012 Worlds hosts, quite a number of RGB’s had to withdraw as a result of the stringent shooting laws in their countries. The WFTF regrets this trend, and we share our empathy with the RGB’s affected.

In the end we were grateful to receive a thumbs up from Norway for hosting the 2012 event – Andy Kays however added that all RGB’s need to be aware of the time and space constraints in Norway. There will be a morning and an afternoon match each day (constituting the same competition) and only 150 entries in total can as a result be accepted.

As far as the 2013 Worlds is concerned, New Zealand have provisionally agreed to host the event. Adam advised us that the New Zealand authorities required all participants entering the country, to have passed a prescribed firearms safety course. The details of this training will be disseminated to all concerned at a later stage.

We thank Norway and New Zealand for their offers, and trust that all RGB’s can now advise their members about the countries where the next two years’ Worlds events will be hosted.

Kind regards,

Johan Jansen
