    They put their names down and said if there was any free places left they would like to be considered for them. There are, so they have been.

    The amount of places was obviously an unknown. So there was a chance they would not go. That also applies to those that shot the euros, because beyond the team there was no guarantee there would be places either. But those that shot the euros would get priority in that event.

    In this case, it turns out there are enough places for everyone who expressed an interest, including those that didn't shoot the euros. That's not always a given or known beforehand.

    You don't have to shoot the euros to go. But in the event there aren't enough places, you'd be the first to lose out.

    Only the team places have qualified, the rest are hopefuls.

    Just a thought for the future. Should qualification for a world championship team be based solely on one shoot? Would it not be more representative of consistent good form if say Grand Prix rankings were brought into the picture? I don't know just a thought.

    With springers it's simple. Because we asked beforehand who wanted to go, we knew there was only 6. And we had been told there would be 6 team springer places (like we knew there were 8 pcp team places). So we knew there wouldn't be a need to qualify for those places.

    That's why we ask ahead of time who wants to go. It really does help us to know if there's something more we need to do or if the current situation suffices. Running any sort of a qualification wouldn't have changed anything. 6 people stated they would like to shoot springer before the worlds, there's 6 team places available.

    In the future, I would say that in the event of demand for springer team looking like it would outstrip places, it may something like the PJC is used as a ranking, or the GP series, or we have to mandate springer shooters shoot springers at the Euros (which is like the PCP shooters) and I would say then that excess places would be issued pro rata to demand. Ie if there's 3x as many extras wanting to go as springer shooters then for every 1 springer shooter outside of the team we'd send 3 pcp shooters.

    As there hasn't been any further dialogue on qualification raised with the EFTA since it was last decided upon, nothing has changed since then. That may change if the EFTA's proposed changes to its structure is accepted, but until then...

    Hope that helps.

    There's always been differing opinion on qualification, but that was the process proposed and voted upon so that's what stands, in light that there's never been anything else proposed since.

    Fair enough, just seems a little unbalanced that somebody who hasn't shot a "major" all year theoretically could enter the euros and place in a world championship team position at the expense of somebody who attained consistent results all year? Theoretical again but let's just say little jack was English and he had a nightmare weekend at the euros and didn't qualify would that be right? Surely it is the duty of the efta to send its best 8 members to a world championship that lets be honest were far from guaranteed to win?
