Why did we agree to it? Host gets to choose events . Only core sports must be present . Shooting is not a CWG core sport (it IS an Olympic core sport) . Lawn bowls is a CWG core sport though (snicker) We are not obligated to attend . We have only attended 16 of 20 CWGs . No need to show up in 2022 .
