    as per the title,

    last year very very few manufacturers turned up to the worlds, so i was wondering if we know if any will come this time or not ?

    i know last year was a pain due to the snow/frost, but i thought id ask..

    Air Arms are putting on a free BBQ on the Sunday for all the shooters and also donating an MPR for the raffle.
    Not sure who are having stands at the show though

    oh nice, thats good of them.

    i was hoping to have a look & play with the FTP, so hoping they would be coming with a stand, after the publicity they had from the mags they would be crazy not to attend..

    thanks for the update sparky.

    Two 'Guns' ;) Pete does it in stereo ! :D.

    Shame not more trade are going, especially as its the national and international centre focus of HFT this year.

    Is there a list anywhere of sponsors for the WHFTA event? I can't see anything on the google site. I was wondering if AIM Fieldsports were coming along this year.

    its such a shame none are coming, even brocock are going to be a no-show this year..
    so many international teams are coming and none of the uk manufacturers are going to be showing off british engineering.

    I think some of the BSA management are going to be coming along (to buy their HFT team lunch with any Luck! :D) And to learn more about HFT, meet the people and get a feel for the sport. There are better trade opportunities for them in the uk at dedicated sales/shows. After all, we are all going there to shoot not hunt for a new rifle!
    I think it is great that some of the British manufacturers are showing an interest in and supporting HFT, it can only be a good thing for the sport and us as users of their products.
