    Default WFTF Veterans reduction of Veterans age from 60 to 55.

    WFTF has given us the opportunity to get input on the reduction of the Veterans age from 60 to 55.

    I know there are many local and international visitors here and we would appreciate your comments here or on the WFTF facebook page. Some comments have been placed WFTF facebook page already.

    Many thanks in advance.

    Besides the opportunity, did they give any reasons why this should happen? I personally am passed the 55/60/65 mark and I will never be a Protea shooting for my country. I am just curious to know the reasoning why WFTF is reducing the age to 55.

    Erm, no, the opportunity was some time ago when the WFTF voted last year in October/November.

    It's been voted on and passed. Irrespective of what mine or other opinions are, the decision has been made, and by those tasked to do it.

    The WFTF have voted on two other items since this (and the other subjects within the same round)... is there going to be a thread on them?

    Because a member country of the WFTF proposed it. In this case that proposal came from Portugal (not the WFTF President... in the case where the president suggests a proposal this is noted instead of the country he resides in)

    Mike the reason given for the age reduction is to increase the number of veteran shooters.

    All well and good for the rules to be changed:- so why is the WFTF web site published Core Rules not updated. Still showing 2017 rules with the proposed changes.

    I expect because last year there was something like 150+ rule changes and it was hard to keep up. I know the WFTF would welcome someone to help out with the web admin though.
