Whilst sitting watching the rain come down ,I thought I would just look at the entries for UK shooters competing overseas this year.Bearing in mind that it was generally agreed that NewZealand was far to expensive to attend and that should have bolstered the numbers . Euskadi. 4 shooters + 3 went AWOL , so cant be counted ?. FT. European Championship . None. Worlds New Zealand .4 I have put this in as a comparison. That makes a total of 8 shooters competed overseas this year to include the Worlds . Relying on Connor to confirm these facts. Now the NEFTA classic attracted 9 overseas shooters. Has the attraction for shooting abroad and the spirit of adventure been lost .
