Final standings here
Shaun - excellent work through the entire GP series.
Many thanks for all the hard work and late hours you have put in to get the results sorted so quickly - it really is appreciated
Shaun, Many thanks for all your hard work & prompt getting the scores online, much appreciated.
You have done a great job throughout the year getting the results posted so quickly..... many thanks!
Here's to you Mr shore
Outstanding is an understatement
Your comitment this year has been most appreciated
To travel,shoot ,travel back and take the time after the long journey home to post result's for every one to check their position's is nothing short of incredable.
Thank you very much shaun
Top stuff Shaun, many thanks for posting and all the hard work to you and the team behind the series this year.
yes a great big thankyou to all the people who put all the hard work and effort in to make these shoots so pleasurable thanks luvs.
GP Series stats (unofficial)
Many thanks Shaun for your tireless updates so soon after each event.
I have updated my spreadsheet view of the averages for the GPs.
Just looking at the charts it looks like GP3 and 6 were less difficult (unless your regulator was #$@#$%$$) while GP1 and GP9 took their toll on AAs with GP5 as the Great Crusher
Note that the maximum score of the day has a big influence on the distributions - so very lucky nobody got a 49 yesterday!
All the best and I hope to see many of you next season.
You would have had to have been in league with the devil to get a 49 - luck would not hsve been enough
well done Shaun,
we all know how tierd we are when we get home so a big thanks to you and the rest of your team for making it so easy to get the results so quickly. You are a real asset to the sport.
Big thanks also lets not forget to Tony, Sam, Ced, Kev etc for all their efforts that we all take for granted.
Many thanks to Shaun and everyone involved for making this year such a great gp series....roll on next year
Easy dave, we've still got showdown, euros, masters worlds... then we can relax in the winter league for a bit
More stats but a different perspective
Rob made a few suggestions so I have put together a slightly different spreadsheet
A Original much the same
B Added 90% column
C Re-worked to use Grades boundaries of >80%, between 70% and 80%, between 55% and 70% and less than 55% i.e. AA, A, B, C
D Then same grades distribution but using 50 as the maximum i.e. no allowance for top score of the day being low(!) just to indicate the influence of a hard day and a less hard one.
I added some highlighting to indicate things but will leave it to everyone else to pass comments along.
Well said Chris,
Huge amount of work gets done by people for the love of the sport, and usually all they get are moans and groans .
Well done to all the people who make a GP season possible.
Not a bad effort Fiddler, but room for improvement!
I seem to remember GP8 results took two days to appear, so a little more commitment next year would be appreciated.
Think you need to change your strap line from MFTA Winter Champ 2009 to BFTA GP Champ 2011 - perhaps waiting to see what happens in Italy! As you always say it is luck - have plenty of it in Italy.
A mega well done to " slim " & dave semmens for pulling the rug from under my feet at the last hurdle .Well deserved , as were all the other placings that were hard earned throughout the gp series in all grades .
Weve seen some excellent shooting across the board this year , with the introduction of the extra reducers making the courses a bit easier than usual ( in my opinion ) but bringing a bit more of a precision element to each course which i think most people have enjoyed immensely.
Would like to thank all the bfta officers for all the work that they put in , in front & behind the scenes ....... I know weve had a few little niggles along the way but looking back ,overall its been a brill series .Many thanks to all involved .
Here are a few personal ideas that should hopefully make the gp's 2012 even better ( nothing too drastic ) dont want to put b & c graders or newcomers off !
6 x standers &6 x kneelers
2x 25mm out to 35 yds on kneelers ( sheltered & not 50 ft up a tree )?
25 mm out to 40 yds. sitters
I know the ideas above will make the courses a little harder but when all's said & done all grades are shooting ONLY against people in their own class .Dont think the handicap system is a good idea as most people like to see & gauge how close they can get to the top score on the day ....
Mentioned this to a few at sywell , could it work having AA & A grades shooting one session & B & C , sft & rec grades in the other ???? This would mean that each grade would have the same weather conditions .Also , it maybe an idea to stick each grade up a few percent to even the grade numbers out ??( if you dont want to shoot in a lower grade , you can always elect to go higher )
Thanks again , calps
Just a question that come to mind is there a list of how all clubs finnished up in the club team event i know castle won but just wondred about the rest??
All in Airgun shooter Magazine Dave.
If ft shooters want coverage then they need to spend a few quid per month and buy the mags.
However, as its you,
agree on the changes, especially 6 standers,25ml kneelers.
Would like the mini kills changed to somthing like must have 1 15 ml and 4 25 ml. After that, upo to a course setter how many minis are out?
Cant see the Aa / a must shoot session X working though due to travelling?
Definatley not interested inhandicap system, we all shoot the same course and it should be 1 target = 1 point.!
