I ASK THESE BECAUSE LAST YEAR NOTHING HAPPEND REGARDING COLOURS AND IT WAS NOT CHEAP TO DO THE ENGLAND WORLDS
WILL IT BE THE SAME PROMISSES THIS YEAR.
WILL SAAARA PUT IT ON PAPER THAT THE TOP 6 WILL BE AWARDED???
A couple of good questions there Breyt. Let's hope we get some answers. :thumbsup
CANT WAIT, WE STILL WAITING FOR LAST YEARS QUESTIONS
Who is the Top 6 guys at the moment ?
Check on SAFTAA under the download section for the ranking list.
But Hennie was referring to the top 6 at this coming weekend's nationals.
I have given up on the idea of getting anything for last years shoot.
me 2,if i make the team this year and dont get colours,im not going to poland it is a waste of time and money.
ACCORDING TO MR BEKKER FT IS GOING NO HWERE
Now please excuse my lack of knowledge here, but what is the issue with 'National Colours'?
From a purely personal perspective, I don't shoot FT for status, but because it is fun. Yes it has cost me a load of money, but, hey you ain't going to live forever and you can't take it with you so I figure go enjoy while you can.
In terms of FT going nowhere - well for a sport that is going nowhere it is being pretty bloody successful.

DALE I ENJOY THE SPORT TO THE FULLEST,THE THING IS COLOURS WAS PROMISED LAST YEAR,AND THIS YEAR
WE ONLY LIVE ONCE. AT THE END OF MY LIFE I WANT SAY THAT I HAD THE BEST THAT LIVE GOO GIVE ME.
I DONT DO THINGS HALF HEARTED I WANT TO BE THE BEST HWEN I COMPETING
It is NOT about status!
Status is when people you don't know ask you for your opinion and invite you to their parties and braais.
Status is when you drive a new car covered in banners with your name on.
Status is when they include your name on the engraved honours list.
Status is when hordes of hot chicks want to hang out with you.
None of this will happen when the top FT shooters get National/Provincial colours.
It is to me similar to wearing the rugby first team's jersey while you are in the first team. If you have worked hard enough to get there, why wear the 2nd teams jersey?
Anyway, that's gone and over now, maybe we can lay the path for the next generation of FT compadres?
