    cheap holiday

    Sound's to me like a cheap holiday,if you can be bothered with the world's:rolleyes:
    I don't know exactly what goes on in the nefta region,but i beleive trev ryan claw hammer's pound coins of people for raffle ticket's.
    I think this is to fund a nefta field trip:)why not adopt such a stratagy for your region.
    Fund yourselves and you may get more of a benofit from the fund raising:)
    It's alright doing the math's,but when you share it with Northern ireland,Wales,Scotland and England you'll probably end up with not very much.

    each region could put a few side shoots on that would bring some dosh in to send the top uk hot shoots from each of there regions sounds fair

    How much does the BFTA have in the bank?

    Although (as a BFTA card holder) i would like to support the England team but not if the BFTA has cash in the bank. After all, where did that cash come from originally.

    Does anyone know how much the BFTA has in the bank?

    As a BFTA cardholder, you do support the England team.
    50p of each cardholder's payment goes to their national association.

    Yes, the BFTA contributes about £600 year back to the EFTA each year, which pays for committee insurance and makes a contribution to other costs like team clothing, however we do run sponsorship which also helps.

    We will be looking at revenue streams in the near future, once we have Germany places firmed up :)

    if your talking @ gp level, i dont think there would be many takers?
    We do side shoots at our regional shoots and they are usually very popular as people asre not in such a hurry to make a "long" trip home.
    There are not alot of shooters doing the sillys at gps, but that could be because they are the sillys?.
    I suppose its worth a go, perhaps the Nelson lads will allow me to put on a Vermin Ft side shoot at Nelson gp if there is room, all proceeds bar prize money to wafta world fund?

    I understand your point, but if it were a side shoot you would have the option not to take part and thus fund.

    Freedom on information says go look in bfta minutes, to save you i think its about £38,000+
    It would be less if I were bank manager as i like spending to improve lol;)

    However, the Bfta has nothing really to do with Worlds FTA.

    For the Bfta to stump up cash, you have to get your region to propose such an idea. The regions are the members and we shooters are only members of the regions.


    Wafta and Sarpa also get "cash back, but on a smaller scale"
    I think last year we (Wafta) recieced enough for a sanry at gatwick lol:eek::D

    2nd week in September for NZ 2014 Worlds is about 19 months away, so with a guestimate of £2,500 for the trip thats around £130 a month to put away. Quite alot in these Tight times, but perhaps it could be done by some.
    Be easier if I were not ging to Germany and Greece this year!

    Does anyone have any experience they can pass on about approaching councuils, govt etc for grants / aid etc?

    I would have thought any WAFTA food bill would be extortionate ;)

    Look at

    http://www.sportengland.org/support__advice/county_sports_partnerships.aspx

    There you can find a map with your local sports partnership and contact them. They are the best people to advise.

    I do know one shooter who had travel costs refunded for shooting Norway, but this is after having qualified and making an application for the grant after attending.

    So in those terms it's something a shooter needs to do, and be aware that a grant may not be awarded, and that they may need to achieve specific goals (like qualifying) before being refunded for what could be just a part of the expense.

    Similar

    I have been told by a wise old welsh turnip turner, the New Zealand turnip is very similar in looks but the main difference is it has tribal tattoos at the top...?
    This is to distinguish the hierarchy within the tribe of turnips...?
    Might be worth looking into..

    funding

    try no, and you will be somewhere around the mark. why should i pay extra. answers on a postcard please.
    you want to go, you pay. when i go to a gp that is a distance does someone fund my fuel costs? you may see a pattern imerging if you follow the flow chart. ask the nz team how they get to the worlds when they are in europe? if the answer is funding, go back to the flow chart and you will still end up at no.
