The 2017 CAFTA Spring Team raffle has been held and all winners have received their prizes. We would like to thank everyone who bought tickets to support the team, this is greatly appreciated and all funds go directly team related competition costs. With this past raffle we were able to cover the cost of all the team shirts, a portion of registration costs and have a little bit left over, which will also go back into the registration costs.

We would also like to give a big thanks to our team and personal sponsors, without their help this raffle would not be possible. First and foremost we want to thanks Travis at Air Gun Source, he has sponsored myself and others personally as well as the entire team with organizing the raffle, securing/donating prizes for this as well as as many other matches and he always seems to have whatever long list of parts, pellets or other toys we may need. Travis also made the trip down to Port Colborne and competed in the Annual Elmer Fudd Hunter match, then later drew the names for the raffles winners. We would also like to give a big thanks to Air Arms, Hawke and JSB for sponsoring the team and donating some really great prizes, while I was in Wales I had the pleasure of meeting the owners of Air Arms (second in from the left side in the picture) and got to personally thank her for donating this rifle as well as their involvement in the sport of FT in general; the Canadian team also signed a Canada flag and gave it to her.

As soon as this next raffle is put into motion I will post all the information I have and in meantime if any people or companies would like to offer prizes of any type please feel free to contact myself or Travis.

Thanks again from Team Canada to all the great people and companies that made this possible!!!
