If you want to shoot the World Championship, then all you need to do is qualify at one shoot and some of the shoots are the Indoor World, State, Triple Crown events or any other qualifiers that would be listed under the tournament section.You need to be in the top 20 scores in your class to qualify.If you do qualify, then you will receive an official invitation in the mail. If you don`t succeed, then you can shoot as many qualifiers as you want to try to qualify. You need to be a member, which you have stated that you are, and sign up in the class of the shooting equipment that you are shooting. No need to state amateur or not due to not having any pro classes for trad classes, that I know of. Now, if you want to shoot the Traditional World Championship, then you DO NOT have to qualify for that particular shoot just come shoot it. It`s a good one I recommend it. You can find rules, classes, qualifiers, tournaments schedule by going to the home page of this site and go under tournaments. Hope this all helps.
