Or on the other hand , why should those of less ability gain from that lack of ability . as dave would say . just saying ??? HOLLY

Never a truer word spoken.

 

For all this not to bfta rules -rubbish- thats just suddenly came out in the open i could find 70% illegal and passed off.

 

Should be increasing the ranges rather making things easier the last 8 years.

Bottom line is that the course 'should' have been checked before hand and any obviously duff targets repositioned.

At least by giving everyone the target it keeps the averages and saves wasting everyone's time and money getting to the shoot.

Yep though for the GP's next year there is a move to appoint our very own grading officer to travel to each venue on the Saturday (and be paid for it) and effectively vet the course before the Sunday. I'm sure a lot of people have probably missed this in the BFTA AGM proposals...:rolleyes:

I know Bainsey did.

My take on it is that it is the responsibility of both the Regional and hosting Club Comp. secs to ensure that the GP courses are up to scratch as we did this year for the SEFTA GP.

It shouldn't need anyone else being paid to travel around checking on the courses.

It didnt go unmissed Holls, quite a few people independantly saw it and came to the same conclusions.

 

Way before Bainsy, Barry Longbottom drove the day before to vet the course/s for all BFTA events. Wouldnt tolerate any crossed strings unless absolute necessity.

Tomorrows SEFTA course is crossed strings central, all tied down though of course. Average range is a mere 37 yards. Should be a doddle. :tease:

Thats why you cant shoot in wind.

Wind nowadays due to that is edge of kill = no skill and a lottery.

Not to mention finding the targets seeing strings disappear high up say on right after 10 yards eventually to find after 7 mins both targets way out on the left floor level = brainless.

That was the plan after I missed the first stander I started on, however after also missing the second I was going to have to settle for a 38.....I had to check to make sure I didn’t have a Hague tag on my back...😉
