World Class Veterans....

Recommended Posts

No not Holly, the scourge of the Russkis but for the Worlds this year the Vets lower age has been dropped to 55 to mix things up a bit.

So, I for one will be taking advantage of this............yes I know I barely look old enough to scrape in at 55 but I blame having a young wife....:grin:

 

Of course this does mean that Bazza will now have some serious competition for his Veteran Crown from 2017....:rolleyes:

Looks like this age reduction for vets is still an ongoing discussion. Good job Holly isn't going otherwise we'd have to propose a 'super-vet' category...:rolleyes:

I'm afraid it's not. It was voted on last October/November by the WFTF Reps.  It's done. There was plenty of discussion beforehand, each country is asked for it's opinion when a proposal is made, before it's voted on.

The WFTF is busy enough without going over old ground because less than a handful of people on social media aren't in agreement with the outcome.

Ah wasn't there something going on about breaking the vets category down into 55-64, 65-74 & 74+?

2019

The only rule which doesn't come into effect is the PCP team size reduction, which is noted in the rules.

We did have the proviso that we didn't need to accept any rule changes that caused us organisational difficulties but these don't.

I'm guessing that the Worlds is going to be awash with Vets now, so from one extreme to the other.

Surely Holly would be to old to qualify for Vets class?

Yep plus of course he wouldn't pass the 'inspection' these days.

Can you imagine the stuff they'd be picking up on the scanners....:0

Well as you’re fond of saying, you have to be in it, to win it.

As we ‘are’ in it and you are not, then we have more of a slim chance of fluking it than your good self...🤣
