    Team 3 lineup

    As the last member who slithered onto the world team it is my sacred duty to introduce the three other members of my team to the benchrest community. Chris Harris had to flee numerous paternity suits in what is now sub Sahara Africa during the notorious Congo civil wars of the 1960's. Village elders still threaten their male children into submission by invoking his name. Don Nielson was involved in a lengthily lawsuit with Charles Schultz over the character " The Great Pumpkin". This is now in the 10th court of appeals and both parties are at an impasse. Cecil Peterson was given 30 billion in government bailout money and then vanished. We hope he flies coach like the rest of us. Me? Well, I feel right at home and look forward to bonding with my teammates. Tim

    Tim - terrible what Google can do to uncover one's reputation - and all these years I managed to "fly under the radar".

    I am sure we will have a fun time but no doubt challenging.

    Jan-The WBC10 website seems to have gone away?

    Tim-This is the third time we have been teamed up. Let's do better than the silver we got in Australia. The (try to be Great) Pumpkin

    Hi Tim

    I'm looking forward to see you guys again.
    And thank you one more time for helping our team mate that had a very bad inflammation in his knee at the last championship in Austria.
    When he got home they found that he also had a broken bone in his hand, but hes ok now.
    It's going to be a great championship in SA, those guys know how to run a party.

    I have to post a thank you to Tim as well! The swede was in quite bad shape when Tim and Manny Garcia sorted him out so we could put him on a flight back to Sweden!

    Ulrik is absolutely right about the boys down in RSA, the really do know how to run both matches and party's Im 100% sure that the WBC 10 is going to be a event to remember! Mike R have already got some of the African treat I think

    Im really looking forward to the trip!

    Paal Otto is right about the Swe. shooters. The teams will be selected soon!

    The "Team vikings" will be staying at Mutango Lodge,‏ really close to the range. There is a good possibility that the Aussies and some of the shooters from RSA will be staying there as well.

    Looking forward to share a Castle with the guys at night after the days shooting is done
