20 Stages, 185 rounds, 2 days shooting out of 7 so plenty of time to see the sights which include lots of wine, cheese, champagne and the tower.

    So very interesting. I just checked the dates again to book leave and the website is now saying 4 man teams not 6 man teams

    6 man teams can compete but only top 4 scores count towards the Country's score. If a country sends only 4 then all of their competitor scores count. That's how I understand it.

    That's probably only referring to the other divisions besides open class.

    Here is a screenshot from the competition rules:

    Day one done. Very hot and at times very tricky winds. Some wrinkles to be ironed out, but I am glad this is happening and confident a lot will be learned from this event as planning for 2024 commences. My biggest takeaway is that we need a unified set of rules to avoid some of the odd rules that caused last minute discussions resulting in late revisions.

    The job done by the international organizers as well as the locals is tremendous and we have to remember that we do not have the luxury of institutional knowledge nor do we have paid staff etc.
    I love that this is happening and already looking forward to the next one!

    Tomorrow, besides rooting for my friends, I am crossing my fingers for Zane.

    I had the pleasure of following Lauryl around all day. What a tremendous shooter, with a great attitude to boot. Considering population size, Scandinavia is generally doing very well (Sweden 10 mill, Norway 5 mill, Denmark roughly 6 mill), but I am sort of biased.

    Wish you were here. We needed one more senior shooter to complete our senior team. They are shooting great, but can't win the senior team division with only 2 scores.
    I really hope most nations can fill all their divisions next time around.

    Open and ladies open have day two tomorrow, but the other results are in

    LEO, individual win to Sweden, UK second
    teamwin for Norway, Sweden second

    Limited, individual win to USA on 1-4, Sweden 5-7
    teamwin for USA, Sweden second

    Factory, individual win to UK, South Africa second
    teamwin UK, South Africa Second

    Senior, individual win and second place to USA
    teamwin to South Africa, France second

    The LEO was settled on the last stage with the two going in to it in a tie, shooting in the same squad.
    Absolutely awesome drama!

    Seems Austin Buschman won, 1 point ahead of Morgun.

    Greg Bell posted a FB live video of Austin cleaning his last stage for the win

    Pretty awesome

    All USA competitors shot incredibly well. It sucks… just 3 or 4 hits away from being able to say no American got out shot at Worlds

    Sounds like they actually had those impacts and crappy ROs didn't call them.

    I don't have any more details. Just from reading Greg's live updates it sounded like there was some frustration there. Didn't sound like it was just targeted at the Americans, just across the board.
    I gotcha. Someone just showed me Greg’s post. I don’t have FB so I’ve been getting those updates second hand. Thanks !

    Did the targets have flashers like Magnetospeed ?
    Looking at the Ultimate ballistics page and FB page ,is get a feeling that for an WC it was a rather rudimentiary setup

    Blinkers on some, but some plates without were not very reactive on perfect center hits with 105 grain bullets. Some misses were just the human factor.
    Remember a few things, there are no commercial prs ranges atleast in my corner of the EU, and these people were thrown into it last minute and were sitting outside with no shade in 30+ celsius four days in a row.
    It can and will get better, but these people all stepped up last minute and made this awesome event possible.
    Every single competitor I spoke to gave the event a huge thumbs up, and many had thoughts on points of improvement like you would in any first time event like this.

    All of the GB Team were Shooting AI AT-Xs with premium scopes. Whilst they shot well in this niche category, they would probably not be eligible for PRS 'Production' Class as the average rifle cost across the team would have been approx $8800 each.

    Yea, I wish AIs were accepted in the PRS production division.
