News about selection World 2023
Herewith you will find information about the selection of the participants for the World 2023 that takes place in (Southern) Ireland.
The address of the competition is
Curraghmore estate, Curraghmore, Portlaw, Co. Waterford, X91 X598, Ireland.
The selection route for the Belgian team at the World 2023 starts with the Floreffe competition on 11-12 June 2022 and ends with the BLC competition on 12-13 Nov 2022.
The list of selection trials for the World 2023 is as follows:
The BLC trial of 12-13 Nov will be held with the system of group A and B due to the limited daylight in that period.
So there will be 9 competition days of which the 7 best results will be merged.
In case of force majeure the difference of 2 competition days will be used for the calculation of the total number of points. In this example it is reduced to 8 match days of which the 6 best results are combined.
Possible changes to the course of the selection due to unforeseen circumstances or force majeure will be handled by the board in consultation with the 3 representatives of the handlers.
In order to facilitate the organisation, you will be asked to register in advance as a competitor for the selection of the World team. This pre-registration is free of charge. Later you will confirm your participation in the individual competition days through the usual registration process of the FSB.
Link for preregistration is Pre-registration.
At the end of the mentioned trial days a final score will be available from which the participants to the World 2023 will be selected.
Information on the selected fields will be provided at the opening of the individual match registrations.
Again, the FSB will appeal to members to contribute as helpers to the execution of the competitions. For the competition in Floreffe, a letter will soon follow with the mentioning of the vacancies for helpers. Thanks in advance.
A group of 5 sheep per run is put at the disposal of the participants, see Art 4 and Art 10 of the 2023 competition rules.
The jury at the selection competitions for the World 2023 are foreigners.
We hope to see many of you at this selection event and welcome you in advance.
