    Just sticking with Annie March it going to be a double A beater. (In my dream but if not as long as I beat Bob Evan and Finny I be happy :p:rolleyes:):):)

    I've just spoken to Sergio and he isn't in receipt of a reply.

    The last list I had was before the worlds which was

    2020 SOUTH AFRICA
    2021 NORTHERN IRELAND
    2022 CANADA
    2023 BRAZIL
    2024 USA
    2025 LATVIA
    2026 AUSTRIA
    2027 BULGARIA
    2028 ESTONIA
    2029 HUNGARY
    2030 BELGIUM
    2031 CHILE
    2032 SLOVAKIA
    2033 ITALY
    2034 AUSTRALIA
    2035 ARGENTINA
    2036 NORWAY
    2037 FRANCE
    2038 CROATIA
    2039 SWEDEN
    2040 GERMANY
    2041 VENEZUELA
    2042 TURKEY
    2043 NEW ZEALAND
    2044 SLOVENIA
    2045 NETHERLANDS
    2046 RUSSIA
    2047 LITHUANIA
    2048 COLOMBIA
    2049 PORTUGAL
    2050 MALTA
    2051 WALES
    2052 UKRAINE
    2053 SCOTLAND
    2054 SPAIN
    2055 EL SALVADOR
    2056 IRAN
    2057 POLAND
    2058 ENGLAND

    However I think it's more likely like this for the reasons in brackets which are my opinion.

    2020 SOUTH AFRICA
    2021 USA
    2022 LATVIA
    2023 AUSTRIA
    2024 BULGARIA (hosts of EFTF 2021)
    2025 ESTONIA
    2026 HUNGARY
    2027 BELGIUM (unlikely)
    2028 CHILE
    2029 SLOVAKIA
    2030 ITALY
    2031 AUSTRALIA
    2032 ARGENTINA
    2033 NORWAY (unlikely)
    2034 FRANCE
    2035 CROATIA
    2036 SWEDEN
    2037 GERMANY
    2038 VENEZUELA (unlikely)
    2039 TURKEY
    2040 NEW ZEALAND
    2041 SLOVENIA
    2042 NETHERLANDS
    2043 RUSSIA (unlikely)
    2044 LITHUANIA
    2045 COLOMBIA
    2046 PORTUGAL
    2047 MALTA (unlikely)
    2048 WALES
    2049 UKRAINE
    2050 SCOTLAND (unlikely)
    2051 SPAIN
    2052 EL SALVADOR
    2053 IRAN (unlikely)
    2054 POLAND
    2055 ENGLAND
    2056 IRELAND
    2057 NORTHERN IRELAND (I believe have declined)
    2058 CANADA (I believe have declined)
    2059 BRAZIL (I believe have declined)

    The reasons why Unlikely figures is usually because they only have small organisations or systemic issues which are beyond the organisation's ability to fix.

    Another factor in this is that the WFTF is currently looking at making the Worlds every other year and having a more regional competitions. For example in Europe we will have the EFTF Championships in between years. In North & South America they'll have their version and perhaps there'll be something like it for SA & Australia & NZ etc.

    We'll know more by the 5th January.

    There are places available for SA.

    USA have accepted their invitation to host

    The venue will be Yankton, South Dakota

    I’ll be posting information on how to place your name onto the list of interest and the qualifications method within a few days.

    Des Moines seems to be the nearest international airport and you can get flights from London Heathrow for about £850 + guns. Then it’s just a 200 mileish drive.

    I thought it was direct. I’ll see if I can find it again.

    Just looked at prices flying into Siuox falls around late August , £1416 was cheapest i could find plus Guns ... price will go up in 12 months ,not a easy place to get too economically.

    Might get cheaper if your prepared for a road trip.

    I looked at Los Angeles myself and is about 850 + guns
    Mind you I plan to do a little road trip first for 8-10 days then return flights from Los Angeles to Yankton about 150

    That might be the way to go , have a road trip , few guys share a hire car would bring price down.

    Might be expensive because you need a connecting flight for Siuox Falls.

    Virgin direct to Minneapolis is £844. Have to add in gun costs. Then a 300 mile drive. I'd always suggest direct flights when travelling with guns.

    Does your £850 include London to LA, LA to Yangton and then somehow home?

    Nope as I said in my 1st one return flights uk to LA 850
    Return flights from LA to Yankton 150
    I possibly just didn’t word it quite right :)
    All flights are direct if that makes sense just using LA as landing base for road trip and return flights

    only problem there is that people will have different ideas of a road trip.
    for me its more to see things as im into my photography etc. so I like the idea of things like the grand canyon, the waves Arizona, death valley, mojave, bryce canyon, horseshoe bend which would probably not appeal to many others.
