    Just thought i will see if any further information has surfaced since this ???? ;

    The FT Worlds 2011 will be held on 9 to 11 September in Velo d’Astico, a small town close to Vicenza, in north east side of Italy.

    Coordinates:
    45 ° 47’ 39,41’’ N
    11 ° 21’ 16,81’’ E

    The place of the contest is less than 9 km far from a highway by wich it is possible to reach Venice (and Venezia or Treviso airports) in an hour and Verona (and Villafranca airport) in an hour and a half.

    The Milano Malpensa airport is 250 km far from Velo d’Astico.

    More information here:

    Found this old thread on the subject ;http://www.shooting-the-breeze.com/forums/showthread.php?t=4002&highlight=worlds+2011

    Just a thought ?

    Confusion about dates for Worlds 2011

    The poster (attached) (which comes from FFTI website, FIELD TARGET WORLDS 2011 - WFTF forum topic) says 2nd to 4th September.

    I presume these as the correct dates

    http://www.field-target.eu/forum/viewforum.php?f=80

    not the dates quoted above (9th to 11th September) in Tool's post

    Good point, did they not have to change showdown dates for 2011 to avoid the clash?

    The information i posted here was from the prior thread also high lighted on my previous post.

    Maybe someone from the Italian Federation can acctually confirm dates etc ?

    Or maybe someone who does know of any updated information ?

    I realise it is still 9 months away.

    Sorry if i have posted any incorrect information maybe it can be corrected if required.

    Scott,

    I have had a prompt reply from Italy regarding the permits. :)

    They have already established a local permit, and the route for the permits upon entry to the airports. The latter has yet to be setup, but will be done. So it sounds like it's all in hand and no problem.

    I have asked for the dates to be confirmed.

    Once I have the info, I will post on the various forums so as many people can read the info as possible, and also pass it onto the BFTA sec for circulation.

    If you were wanting to drive,i take it there would be a problem going through certain countries without an international firearms certificate?

    While your on the scent...

    Can you give your contact a bump about accomodation in the area Rob ? Is there on-site camping ? Velo d'Astico looks a bit like Jurassic park - devoid of human presence :eek:
