Smile Something to think on....!

I've always thought it strange that The FT World Championships didn't require qualification.

Most, if not all, other sports & shooting disciplines require national qualification to fill a specified number of places per country at a world championship.

I understand why it didn't require qualification & was an open competition in the past, as it was a marginal sport with few competitors that could afford the costs of competing in the World Champs.

So maybe we should be looking at it from the point of view that FT has come of age & is no longer a marginal discipline.

Yes, change is usually difficult, & a method of qualification will have to be devised & possibly some financial support from the BFTA/EFTA for the qualifiers to be able to attend a world championship, but I see this as all positive forward momentum for our sport.

As to qualifying we will all have to try harder, train harder, be more dedicated to the sport if we want a chance to be a FT World Champion.

So enjoy this interesting new development of FT.
There is nothing impossible to those who will try!
