Had a phone call from Roland Thomsen in South Africa the other night. I sent him an email telling him about the (provional) AUS team selection so he called straight away. He wanted to thank us for the support of 12 shooters and to say they will do all things possible to make this WBC the best ever.
He also said they have made a number of Farley rest base sections which will be available to us.
He asked about flags and I told him that we have yet to decide this issue but subject to all parties agreeing we (Annie and I) would like to take maybe 30 BRT flags over there and sell them all after the event if he thought that would be possible.
They have supply of Federal match primers but are having some difficulty getting Vit 133. They can get it but the quantity required and the amount of money required is enormous. If they do get it in they expect it to be 3 times the cost of local powders. I understand the local powder has a similar burning rate to Vit133. Cleaning solvents etc will be right.
I will wade through some of the procedural the legal issues this weekend about WBC entries and firearms entry in SA etc. I am sure Fergus can provide some experiences about this. There is minimal stuff on the WBC 10 website although they talk about having it updated soon.
If anybody comes upon any information useful to do with anything please let us all know. Time is tight.
