I'm not too sure that it every 'official opens' - in the past Tim has always asked people to let him know their plans as soon as possible, so he has an idea of the turnout.

As the match approaches, he'll want to firm up the numbers as best as possible, so the awards can be ordered and more critically, the meals planned.

It'd be nice to have a proper registration website and all the other cool stuff that some of the matches do, but the reality is this takes extra work, and often the pre-registration information provided (rifle, scope, pellet) changes when shooters show up!

I just had an idea! (doesn't happen often) - check back on FTCentral soon and there'll be an 'unofficial' registration posting!

At this point we have 24 shooters that confirmed their attendance, including three from the USA.

6 - Open PCP
0 - Open Piston
2 - WFTF PCP
6 - WFTF Piston
6 - Hunter PCP
4 - Hunter Piston

Looks like number has solidified at 24 for Sunday and 23 for Saturday. Ordered awards and will pick up tomorrow. Food is all set for both days and only have a lane and a half to clean up. Lane one is alive again and ready for match.

Travis had other commitments for the weekend, but is going to donate 10 prizes/surprises! I give him 10 names in an ordered list and he will send them their prizes directly. So he is still contributing even though he cannot make it.
