WHFTA 2023 NEWS……
AFTER A VERY LABOUR-INTENSIVE PROCESS THAT’S INCLUDED, COUNTLESS HOURS OF DISCUSSION, A SUBSTANTIAL AMOUNT OF DRIVING AND MUCH CAREFUL DELIBERATION WE CAN FINALLY ANNOUNCE THE NEW VENUE FOR WHFTA 2023!
WHFTA HAVE PARTNERED WITH THE AWESOME PEOPLE AT NEWFIELDS FARM AND WHFTA 2023 WILL BE HELD AT BORDERS WOOD ON 16TH & 17TH SEPTEMBER 2023! A HUGE CONTRIBUTING FACTOR TO OUR DECISION TO SELECT THIS VENUE IS THAT THE GUYS AND GIRLS AT NEWFIELD FARM ARE COMPLETELY BEHIND BOTH SHOOTING SPORTS AND CONSERVATION. WE CANNOT EMPHASISE THE IMPORTANCE OF THIS TO US! SIMPLY PUT THEY ARE TOP PEOPLE.
BORDERS WOOD LOCATED IN ROBIN HOOD’S COUNTY; NOTTINGHAMSHIRE IS A TRULY STUNNING SETTING. THE MIX OF HUNDREDS OF ACRES OF TERRAIN WHICH INCLUDES ANCIENT ENGLISH WOODLAND WILL PROVIDE AN IMMENSE PLATFORM FOR SOME INCREDIBLY HIGH END HFT COMPETITION. IT IS A SERIOUSLY IMPRESSIVE FOOTPRINT.
TO GRAB YOUR PLACE FOR WHFTA 2023 HEAD ON OVER TO THE WHFTA 2023 PORTAL WHERE YOU’LL FIND EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT WHAT PROMISES TO BE ONE OF THE MOST EXCITING OUTDOOR AIRGUN EVENTS OF THE YEAR!
COME AND GET INVOLVED! WE SHALL SEE YOU ON THE HFT BEACH!
DUE TO EVENTS COMPLETELY OUTSIDE OF OUR CONTROL THE ORIGINAL VENUE CHOSEN FOR WHFTA 2023 HAS DECIDED NOT TO GO AHEAD WITH THE ENTIRE WESTON PARK COUNTRY FAIR OF WHICH WHFTA 2023 & ALSO BFTA BRITISH OPEN WAS A PART.
TO THAT END, THE VENUE FOR WHFTA 2023 WILL NOT BE WESTON PARK.
THIS OBVIOUSLY RAISES A NUMBER OF QUESTIONS FROM YOU GUYS WHO ULTIMATELY TAKE PART IN THIS AWESOME EVENT AND MAKE IT WHAT IT IS. WE CAN ASSURE YOU THAT WE HAVE ASKED THOSE QUESTIONS MULTIPLE TIMES SINCE RECEIVING THIS NEWS. SO, WE SHALL DEAL WITH THE MAIN QUESTION…
WILL THERE BE A WHFTA 2023?
WE ARE WORKING BLOODY HARD TO MAKE DAMN SURE THERE IS!!!!
WE HAVE STRONG LINKS TO OTHER POTENTIAL SITES OF EQUAL SIZE TO WESTON PARK AND SINCE THE NEWS, WE HAVE MADE INROADS ON A NUMBER OF ALTERNATIVE VENUES, ALL OF WHICH ARE CURRENTLY SAT AS VIABLE OPTIONS AT THIS TIME.OUR IMMEDIATE INTENTION IS TO GATHER AND ASSESS THESE OPTIONS WHILST KEEPING YOU ALL INFORMED AT EVERY MAJOR STEP. AFTER ALL, THIS IS YOUR SPORT, WE ARE MERELY PART OF THE GLUE THAT PUTS IT TOGETHER.
BOOKINGS AT THIS TIME HAS BEEN STOPPED AND FOR THOSE WHO HAVE BOOKED AND WANT TO DISCUSS ANY FORM OF REFUND PLEASE DO CONTACT US PRIVATELY AND WE CAN FOR SURE MAKE THAT HAPPEN. BUT OUR ADVICE RIGHT NOW IS TO JUST HANG TIGHT AND SEE WHAT WE CAN PUT TOGETHER, AFTER ALL US HFT’ERS ARE VERY ADAPTIVE CREATURES. ADDITIONALLY, FOR THOSE THAT HAVE VISITED OUR WEBSITE WE CAN ONLY APOLOGISE FOR THE INTERIM “FIXES” WE BEEN FORCED TO PUT INTO PLAY. THE GOOD STRUCTURE OF THIS WILL RETURN IN THE IMMEDIATE FUTURE!
WE INTEND TO HAVE A WELL THOUGHT OUT SOLUTION VERY SOON!
THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATIENCE,
WHFTA have teamed up with the BFTA (British Field Target Association) to bring two huge outdoor airgun events together. The work we have done collectively with the BFTA means that the World Hunter Field Target Championships 2023 (WHFTA 2023) and the BFTA British Open 2023 will be held over the weekend of 16th & 17th September 2023 at Weston Park, UK in the exact same place at the exact same time and will be fully intertwined.
But what does that mean exactly? It means that between us we are putting the best part of 500 airgunners from two disciplines together, sharing resources, sharing knowledge and sharing the same passions. This means that in terms of numbers this is the biggest airgun event since the FT Worlds in 2019!
We are hugely excited about this collaboration and what the potential positive ramifications are from this partnership. For both organisations this could be absolutely game changing for the outdoor airgun shooting community!
Further details will be announced over the course of the coming weeks but for now let’s celebrate what can only be described as a win for the airgun community!
The WHFTA would like to openly thank the individuals within the BFTA for working with us to make this happen, you are a credit to our sports!
Stick stick hooray!
Following a very extensive discussion with the global HFT community we are extremely pleased to announce that a new class will be in play for The HFT World Championships 2023 aka WHFTA 2023.
The Sticks class will make its debut at WHFTA 2023!
We are excited to see how the Sticks class will become part of the HFT World Championships for years to come. We are excited to see; who takes part, the innovation that will come from this class & the exciting competition. We feel this is an incredibly positive move for the sport!
So, get your sticks purchased and come and get involved!
The World Hunter Field Target Championships 2023 will be held at Weston Park, UK on 16th & 17th September 2023. And we cannot wait!
