    Hi Dick:

    You should be shooting in SA!!

    I wanted to point out that we have 6 USA participants at the worlds...Ken Hicks and Chris Brauda (both from Florida) are not mentioned but they are shooting for the USA...Ken is a well known veteran and a very good shooter and Chris Brauda even though he is a new airguner is another very good shooter...Chris won 2nd place in HV at the USARB Nationals last October of 2018 (He has only been shooting air for 2 years)...

    I wonder what happened to Todd Banks, as of January 2019 he was going to be part of the team and shoot Air and Rimfire...I had my plane and hotel reservations and was part of the tram, but surgery early this year and recent health issues prevented me from going and when I informed the team of my withdrawal early on March I lost contact with Todd....Anyone knows what happened to him or why is he not participating?

    Best regards,

    AZ

    if you look at the competitor list and go the bottom you will see all the shooters from the USA and Todd is not listed but the 6 you mention are
    and look at their id numbers Hicks is 266 and Brauda is 267 see first attachment
    http://www.wrabf2019.com/gallery/competitor%20list.pdf

    then goto the schedule and you will see Hicks 266 is scheduled to shoot match 1 relay 3 on bench 27 see attachment 2
    and if you check all the rest of the schedule you will not find him again or will you find Brauda 267 scroll down for all

    my conclusion
    they ( Banks, Hicks 266 & Brauda 267) all canceled
    i guess they figured without you they would not be good enuff
