    I would like to say why even though I have only shot in three world championships why I think this event was second to none. Firstly this venue was chosen with infrastructure in mind. Near to airports and easily accessible via motorways. Secondly it had everything and more regarding putting three superb courses and a large plinkinking area within close proximity to the car parking. Thirdly the function room was big enough to take accomadate everyone so they could hear a great opening ceremony from guests who started shooting ft in the founding years of our great sport, and a closing ceremony in front of more competitors in one room than have ever competed at any air rifle event ever, and what an atmosphere there was, all with easy parking and access. And lastly the whole experience was designed by feedback collected over many word champs to make sure all the best features and poorer ones were taken into consideration to make it work with minimization problems. Take a bow to all including all British field target federations.

    Apart from one of the very early World's events in the UK, this was the first I took part in. However, I used to take part in archery events at a reasonably high level. The organisation of the WFTF2019 event was on a par with those big archery events, and taken as a whole was a massive success. The logistics involved outside the actual competition itself are enormous, and credit has to go to the planning and execution team who pulled this off so successfully.

    Yes, we've all shot more "interesting" courses - but how many of those had to comply with an International ruleset, whilst providing a balance between the other two courses at the same time? The fact that we had so few stoppages across the 3 days is a testament to the preparation that must've gone in - can that be said of these more "interesting" courses?

    Critics can always throw brickbats after the event at specific aspects, but looking at the event as a whole it was superbly set up, run and delivered - well done to all!!

    My only regret is due to my own stupidity I couldn't participate on all 3 days: must drink more coffee...... caffiene withdrawal give you a banging migraine!:(:(:confused::confused::confused::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:

    By marshalling clearing up is not going to change the course john i enjoy courses with high low and a variation in angles to me makes it more intresting i enjoyed the england worlds but most targets were straight in front of you at 4ft high

    Alan, believe it or not this was a deliberate act by the course setters (of which I was one of). I understand that we all love to shoot those extremely high shots etc. However,the reasons for the target placement on all three courses was;

    Time 1. By having targets at accessible heights for Marshals it meant that target maintenance (respraying, checking etc.) was easier and therefore took much less time. Multiply that a number of times means that by doing what we did saved the event lots of time and allowed the mechanics of the days to work

    Time 2. Shooters take more time to shoot the types of targets that I mentioned above. Fact! Once again multiply this a number of times it equates to a lot more time throughout the event thus effecting the whole mechanics of the event

    Arms Race. By having the targets placed at the heights that they were, meant that shooters were not reliant on intricately engineered multi adjustable hamsters to shoot the targets in comfort. The target placement placed the emphasis on the core fundamentals of marksmanship, therefore in our opinion the lack of certain elements of equipment didn't detract from the event for most people.

    Many thanks,


    Kieran

    On the whole the event was great, there will always be the odd issue but they were addressed.
    I do think the site managers missed a trick with the camping site, it has potential if they invested in the toilets & showers.
    A group of us stayed on site & we had a hoot of a time.

    Sorry fellas I didn't mean to stir ****. To me a successful world championships is one that runs like clockwork. England did and as said above it was about marksmenship, reading the wind and keeping your bottle on the discipline lanes.

    Not how expensive your kit is... And hampster.
    Poland had a great idea by sticking everything up a ridiculous cliff, problem was they refused to paint the targets and believe it or not me and Calpin had to do it
