Team Canada is back home and taking some time to recover. It was a a great experience and the Kiwis put on a great tournament. Thanks to Graeme Smith and his team for organizing the event.

We received many well wishes and support along the way and want to take a moment to thank everyone involved for their support of the team. In no particular order we need to thank our families, our sponsors and our shooting colleagues. Without everyone's support we could not have made this happen.

Full results are at http://nzdanelson.co.nz/wbr2017.html  remember to refresh the page to get to the complete listings.

For 2019, it is true, the World Championships are coming to Canada. It will be held in Calgary, the week after the Stampede ends. Everyone interested in attending the Worlds Championships in  2019 should be making plans to get to a number of the larger shoots in 2018. As in previous years your qualifying rank will be determined by how many shooters you beat in 2018.  Canada will be sending 3 teams of 4 shooters, so 12 in total. The actual qualifying process will be published shortly.

Here are a few pictures from New Zealand:
