    Guys,

    I want to do a brief report on the World Long Range World Championships recently held in New Zealand.

    I have the NZ NRA's website and facebook page, but I'm struggling to find a comprehensible short summary of the event results, along with conditions, and basic facts. I'm trying to figure out, for example, how many days F-Class shot as distinct from Fullbore (Palma). Also trying to get a top 10 individual by class. LINK: https://www.lrwc2019.nz/

    If one of you guys attended this match (I know Ray Gross was) there, can you provide the who, what, when and where? I can't even find, with certainty, all the teams present or the number of competitors.

    I do have plenty of photos thanks to Facebook. But I need the facts.

    NOTE to organizers: You put on a great event, by all accounts. But you need to have a 1000-word summary of what happened!

    As a sling shooter and knowing a few shooters there would love to read about some of the teams challenges and accomplishments.

    I am sure the grand master of the Palma alliance ERUD will type something up for you if you send him a PM.

    Morgen, I am sure the "forum boss" would appreciate your observations as well. ;)

    Will be glad to get some info in to the "Boss" but as I just got out of the airport at something past midnight (had to wait for two rifles to make a separate, later, flight from Houston to Charlotte) I will need a bit of time to get through the jet lag and get at least a little work done here at the office today. But, will be glad to chime in with some feedback....especially on the Under 21/25 side.

    I do plan to write something up, but I don’t think it will be as soon as you are looking for. I’m still down here, and will have 3 weeks of missed work to catch up on after I get back before I can start on anything.

    Unfortunately, it isn't likely that Shooting Sports USA will pick it up with any kind of meaningful detail, if at all. :rolleyes:
