    Dear all BFTA shooters

    Happy New Year!

    At the AGM in November 2019 the BFTA regions voted in favour of a trial change to the format of the Showdown.

    Here is a brief overview (subject to change).

    Entrants will decrease from 64 to 48
    6 qualify from each GP
    Any places that become available will be offered to the highest scores at the Masters 2020

    12 groups of 4 shooters
    First 12 qualifiers from GPs will be seeded into groups
    All competitors will shoot against each member of their group. You will get to shoot 60 targets and each of the 3 courses.

    Following the group stage, competitors will be organised into 3 knock-out phases.
    Showdown = Group winners and 4 best placed runners up
    Plate = 8 runners up and 8 best placed 3rd in group
    Shield = Remaining 16 competitors

    Knockout phases will pair competitors by random draw to decide the last 16 pairings. After that they will run to a schematic.

    The knock-out phases will run to conclusion to provide winners of: Showdown, Plate and Shield.

    This new format will offer all competitors at least 4 rounds (80 targets)

    All courses will run full and simultaneously so there will be no long breaks between rounds.
    There will be a lunch break after the group phase.

    Hoping for your support
