The Sporting Committee has set the criteria for teams’ selection for the 2015 FITASC World Sporting Championships. This event is being held at the Caribou Gun Club, 30649 380th St. Le Sueur, MN 56058, USA. July 23rd– 26th 2015.
The Committee has agreed that this is a major event for us and within reasonable distance to NZ, and without the huge efforts and costs required to get to Europe. To that end we will be giving as much financial help as is possible to selected Teams from the Sporting fund. As you all know this is the only money available to us for team funding, except for actual team entries.
The criteria is:
COMPULSORY:
NZ Sporting Nationals (Wanaka-17/18 February 2015) 200 targets
NZ FITASC Grand Prix (Wanaka -20/21 February 2015) 200 targets.

Plus one of the two events below: (best score to count)

NZ Open (Alexandra-11/12 October 2014) 200 targets
FITASC Oceania (Rotorua- 27/28/29 March) 200 targets

TOTAL: 600 targets, first past the post.

Wanganui over the Easter break was a great place for a couple of days Sporting. The weather forecast was not that promising, but we saw long periods of sun shine. Brian and his team did a great job with the targets and everyone enjoyed the selection of well presented and challenging layouts.
