Answers on a postcard. I don't want to see the other classes under represented, but if that's a case then we will be sending a team of 4, a Junior, a Senior, a Springer and a Lady. We could cross qualify, which could open up one place for the team perhaps. If we don't get a junior entry then that's another. But will people be happy to see a qualification place be given to someone just because they are going by default... ie they might be the only Junior/Senior/Springer/Lady attending.

That's aside from the fact we have 30 countries, 8 people in a team and no smart suggestions from the federation as to how to fit 240 shooters on a course apart from a *it will be alright on a night* kind of approach. Probably because a lot of countries don't actually have that many people wanting or able to attend.

I'll email Germany and ask them how they intend to handle numbers and entries.
I wish i had some answers for you Rob, i wouldn't like to be part of the German body that are going to have to cope with the expected numbers next year...
