The registration process is a bit complicated. It goes through 3 cycles/rounds. The competition can handle a maximum of 450 shooters. During the first round/cycle each of the WFTF member countries (through their governing board) is offered an equal number of positions (host country gets more, however). Those countries that elect to participate must pay by a deadline or loose their positions. Positions not filled in the first round are divided equally and offered to those countries that paid for first round positions. After the 2nd payment deadline a 3rd allocation round is run. Remaining places after the 3rd round are open to all countries. Cost for shooters is $200.00
