    Farewell!

    I asked that the following letter be read out at the AGM in November - Dear Roger & Committee Members, As I am 70 at my next birthday and have not competitively shot for nearly 10 years now, I feel it is about time I retired from the Committee. I have been continuously on the Committee since about 1986 and will be sorry to call it a day but, my ‘feel’ for the sport is now beginning to deteriorate due to not being involved on a day to day basis. I will continue to assist Steve in running the forum for as long as you wish me to, but I will no longer be attending any of the Committee meetings. I wish all of you the best and may the sport continue to grow. All the best. Alan Roger asked me what retirement gift I would like, so I suggested a Perpetual Trophy to be presented annually to the highest scoring Junior at the European Open, junior to be defined as under the age of 16 on the first day of the shoot - I think this was accepted. So this is to say farewell to my many friends made over the past 25 years.....but, although you may not seem me around at Newbury anymore, I will still be on the BFTA Forum for a while!

    BFTA shooting rules .

    The over the legal limit is covered in nthe previous paragrah. The Yellow card rule for the GP was brought in as a result of shooter pressure about long distance travelling and a genuine 'mistake'. The legal limit rules has always been that the gun must be removed. Your statement - Unfortunately there are a lot of BFTA rules that are pretty much worthless as they are not being followed or enforced & that is the job of the BFTA, the marshals & the shooters. At the moment a group can decide to ingore any of the rules & nothing happens. Shows that you agree that it is ALL OUR responsibility to police our own sport. If we take no action when we see the rules being flouted, then what is the purpose of the organisation and rules? Sorry to flog on a bit Scoobs, but we all have to police the sport or we will all suffer.... :D

    BFTA shooting rules .

    ...also there are two limits, the legal limit and the BFTA limit which is below the legal limit. It also DOES state that the competitor can complete the course with another rifle to maintain the group... ...and in both cases, GP & non GP, it clearly states what happens about the scores...

    ...and if the rules are ambiguous, again why have you not stated which rules they are....and done something about them? You can at anytime bring this to your Regions notice and get them to do something at the AGM. The Rules are revised/updated every year at the AGM....they were last updated less than a year ago!

    You are not talking about the Rules not working, you are talking about the rules not being enforced, which is an entirely different subject. You have obviously allowed this to happen as you yourself say that the crono rules are being flouted. If you saw this happen why did you not do something about it? If you did not see it happen then it is hearsay which in English law is not permitted as evidence....
