ok lads and lasses its that time again
nominations for gp2 aardvard please
Tawdvale for breaking most of the rules on standers and kneelers. and as steve said in another post should only be classed as a open shoot.
Kev I don't think they will make the same mistake again!But how they misread the rule's????
We all shoot the same course Kev maybe we should let it lye for now.
dont think we should if nothing is done why should we have rules or should we just do as we like.
they had the rules or how did hey no to put 2 15mm kills out.
Point taken Kev but I think lesson learnt, I would have thought.
the BfTA are there to try to bring our sport forward thats why the rules are in and not to be just forgot about. or we going back to the dark ages.
There are other issues about the shoot to which need to be addressed to.
WE JUST HAVE TO SEE WHAT HAPPENS AT THE MEETING IN JUNE.
What Huge Sign
I would like to nominate Peter "Arms dealer" Jacob for not seeing the large Kneeling Sign on our last lane (lane 19) and shooting the first target sitting.
Can I nominate him for shooting a Walther too?
Hi Kev, I thought the BFTA rules were changed after the Emley shoot a few years ago & said that once a shot had been taken at a target it was then accepted for the whole of the competition.
Maybe its time to vet the GP courses before hand ? We still find targets that need altering when vetting our UKAHFT national courses.
one of the lanes in question was called by a well known shooter before as shot was taken and they would not do any thing about it.
Its a Walther owner thing - we do it to give other shooters a chance
aarvark for gp2
ok then we have
peter jacop shooting a kneeler sitting hissssssssss
aarvark for gp2
i will aslo put myself forward for missing all 4 standers (after 3 hours practice at redferns )
so we have
peter arms dealer jacop ---- shooting kneelers sitting
mike williams --- missing 4 standers
tosh --- not bringing his bean bag
someone from tawd vale course biulders association
I agree - it would have removed almost all the problems
Robf for not dialing?
Robf for Having silly Red nose?
aarvark for gp2
you leave my team captain alone ...
but yes he can go on the list for not dailing
i am sure someone else shot a kneeler sitting but i cant remember who it was
I think that was the general thaught Sunday afternoon, that a Gp course will now be checked prior to starting Am session.
We walked the course saturday evening and I said " tough first lane, 42 y + 37 y stander".
Range finding done by mk1 before anyone asks, but it did not occure to me about the new "rules" on positionals!
Think its fair to say a large amount of re-wording may be coming up on shoot rules at the next meeting or two?
Back to aardvarks
Course at Tawd
Like i said on Sunday to all that i spoke to, the course had been shot so it was too late to change it etc. You cant change it to an open as it has been shot.
With regards to the club etc, this mistake WILL NOT happen again. Gp 3 - 5 will be run right and in the meantime this issue will be discussed and sorted AT THE MEETING! ! !
Lets put this to bed on here and get things back on track at the rest of the gp's.
well said mark
now can i have my thread back please
the shoot was called before a pellet was fired and the marshall would not doing anything about it.
Thats all i have to say.
ok as i am not going to get my thread back here is my view
gp2 was a poor course anyway -there could have been more thought put into it .
we cannot and should not put this down as an open as that is unfair to the shooters that hit the illegal targets (yes i missed all the standers )
what we should do is learn from it and ensure the rules are followed for the remainder of the gps
my view is the bfta or the shooters elect 2/3 people who are fully aware of the rules to vet the courses before any shooting takes place (i am sure this is what happens in hft )and it seems to work .
if a target is demed to be illegal it gets sorted before anyone is even on the firing line .
the rules on target distance and placment should be made clear to avoid any misinterpretaion
these are my views and anyway i think we should ban standers anyway
