    Default World class venue

    If only we could have had this venue for the Worlds FT challenge. Hermanus seems to be the ideal location. One hours drive from CT international Airport. World class hotels(Windsor Hotel) amongst others as well as chalets,BB's aplenty and a very mild and temperate climate. Hell, there are even camping sites available and even movie facilities. The area I had in mind is a highly forested area not even 5km's out of Hermanus itself. It runs along the very scenic road between Hermanus and Volmoed and borders the Onrus Mountain range. It would have been Ideal for a FT World championship and crime in Hermanus is virtually non-existent. Check Waypoints of area on Google Earth @ E 19'13'9 and S34'23'39
    Highly accessible via roads as well.

    IF ONLY!!!

    FWIW, and this is in no way a knock for your potential venue, as someone who has travelled to SA on several occasions the appeal to me is to get away from mild temperate climates and woodland.

    I personally feel that to attract the international contingent you want to offer them something different, so a bushveld venue should give an appropriately 'African' feel to the event.

    Falcon--good idea!
    Start preparing a feasibility study and a presentation and submit to SAFTAA.

    I agree with Dale.
    If we get to host the FT Worlds it should be in Upington or Alldays in the middle of January. Shooting to start at 13:00 sharp. We'll be the only one's left standing. Then if we could enter a team of twenty we'll take the first twenty places. That will put SA FT on the map!!

    The advantage of hosting in the Hermanus area is that it ia close the winelands, Cape Town (list in top five places to see in world), has shark diving and of course our big attraction the whales.

    We could have Great White shark & Southern Right whale silhouttes - not too sure how that will go down but anyway... :dunno

    ps: If FT represents common vermin, can we have hijacker silhouttes? Or is that not politically correct? :twak
