    We would like to thank everyone who helped with the Worlds this year.

    To all course setters, Lake, Ian BainbridgeChris Cundey, Mark Crossland, & on the Friday Kieran turner and Grego Hensman, Big Greg was down to help but was ill but we appreciate the offer.

    Woods Derick Stone, Dave Lillywhite & Steve & Guy Gillies and myself.

    To everyone who helped Jane & Elaine book in.

    Steph for helping Jane and Steve with the stats.

    To all Marshalls who gave up their time to do their bit.

    John & Karen from Aimfield sports for their sponsorship prizes and support.

    Lloyd grove for doing a cracking job on the trophies.

    Best Fittings for supplying free air for the shooters.

    To Ian Harford & Jerome Roberts and their staff from Countryman Fairs for hosting the event and the work the lads do in preparation for us.

    Everyone who helped get both courses in:cool:

    And anyone else who did anything to help.

    Lastly but not least to all competitors for making the Worlds the success it is.

    We know there was issues with the zero range but this has nothing to do with WHFTA and will be sorted for next year, countryman fairs had all the zero plates stolen and used what they could, but as I said it will be back to normal zero range for 2013.

    Steve Gillies will be going through all cards over the next week, so any amended scores and class changes will be sorted soon.

    Pete & Jane

    A big thanks must go to you and Jane as well mate, without your efforts all year round, we'd all have been somewhere different without the company of good mates this weekend. :)

    As Ryan said, many thanks to Pete, Jane and ALL that we're involved in any way in making this an absolutely fantastic weekend, despite being destroyed by the lake course:D
    Over the two days I think the weather/wind was very similar for all, so those that shot well-bloody well done!
    All I can add is roll on 2013 when we can do it all again.:D:D

    Agree with all of the above. The 2 courses this year in my opinion are the best the worlds have produced and would exspect to see something simmilar on the national circuit. The weather certainly did its bit to thin out the field over the 2 days but everyone still looked happy, roll on the worlds 2013.

    Well done to all involved in organizing a brilliant weekend, two top courses with an evil wind that would not make it's mind up made it a real challenge.
    I doubt I will be here next year 2013. Although if South Africa start sending out a team I will be back in a few years flying the South African flag, if they will have me:)

    It was a brilliant weekend and thanks for all your hard work, Pete and Jane, for organising it all and to all who helped make it the success it was.
    The courses were challenging to say the least, and the company and banter up to the usual standards!!!!
    Would also like to thank Gary for the lift and Alex for keeping us company so he could chat to Gary and I could snooze in the back of the car!!!!! :D
    Roll on 2013.

    A massive thank you to Pete and Jane aswell as the huge amount of others that are needed to help set up and run a fantastic competition for the weekend.

    I really appreciate the effort others put in so I can come and shoot and enjoy myself with like minded people and as always the banter was terrific.

    The weather was the usual scottish 4 seasons in 15 minutes sort of stuff.

    Looking forward to seeing you all at Emley!

    Big thanks to all involved with the worlds this year. I think this years have been the best yet, two good shootable courses, everyone seemed to be having a good time even when the conditions weren't great. Well done to all the winners and thanks to Steve for the company on the courses over the two days, cheers Dave.

    Thanks to all involved. Until you're in the thick of it you just don't realise how much time people give to make sure things run smoothly (mostly):)

    Many thanks to Lurch for a great weekends shooting and it's true that you only really get to know someone whilst shooting and chatting. It's the first time i had shot round with him and have to admit that he's good company.

    Go on the lurch.....welll shot this weekend mate. Pity i threw away the lead in the woods:rolleyes:;):D:D

    Many thanks from Holland

    Dear fellow air-shooters,

    I would like to thank everybody -specially the organization- for the super event of last weekend.
    Also a special thank to my fellow shooters Chris and Steve, both in recoil class .177 and .22. :shot:
    I had a lot of fun and enjoyed it very much.
    Every time it's a learning experience.;)
    The weather was not as bad the forecast told us it should be.
    Only Saturday in the afternoon we had showers of rain, with quit a lot of wind on the lake.

    Hopefully we will be competing the WHFTA again next year.
    Again, thanks a lot!

    I also shoot some pictures instead of .177 pellets.:p

    Best regards from Holland,

    Stephan

    Thanks Pete Jane and everyone else involved doubt it could be done any better.
