    The idea of this thread is to ask questions you've been dying to ask, I'll kick it off with this one:

    Do grades ever time out in FT? Let's say I was an A shooter and missed 3yrs, would I lose my grade and go back to unclassified?

    There is no longer "unclassified" in BFTA FT grades. If you have no grade history or have been out of the sport for a long time then you will initially be graded A. After 3 shoots you will then be regraded.

    Is the time "undetermined" Shaun? Just noticed looking at the stats that some players have no date at the side of their data and just curious like.

    There hasn't been but at the recent meeting of the BFTA the Grading Officer's report indicated that he will propose that 3 years is a suitable cut-off date at the AGM in November.

    Wee

    Does anyone else on a decent score dribble some wee in their pants when they arrive at the last lane and realise its standers?

    Thanks,

    Conor

    Are incontenance pads allowed in pants when faced with such last lane standers ?
    Would the dribble of wee cause you to either time out or miss plate ?

    No, but when I hit the last lane of standers I dribble a little bit of **** out.

    Why is the Burger van not situated half way round the course in a GP?

    If you are carrying a couple of Brussels sprouts in your shorts and one becomes dislodged on a kneeling lane is anyone allowed to tell Calps or is it only buddy and line marshals?

    Is there a limit on the size of kneeling signs? As at the last gp they were so big a shooter was convinced they applied to the lane beforehand.

    Under rule 66b incontenance pads can be used but must remain in situ for the duration of the course of fire rather than being deployed on a lane-specific basis. Could be a cracking solution for someone looking to flout bag-thickness regs - just go for masses of pads.

    Takes me back to a GP at Harriers in 2007 where, despite a recent anal op, I battled round thanks to the quality of 21st century wound care.

    At last some sensible FT debate.

    Let's hope some of the points raised appear as firm proposals at the AGM

    Conor - I wee at every standing lane :) And "clear" means putting the course away :D

    Anal examination

    Simon you are perhaps forgetting our anal antics in 2011 when we shared a hotel room together in Italy! Those examinations you suggested were very enjoyable, even though the probe you showed me somehow felt longer and bigger when you inserted it :confused:
    Your tip of bending me over the bed and placing my head into the pillow worked a treat (as you'd thought you forgot the lube) but then you somehow found it and squirted it in at the end just before removing the probe. It must have been tough to get it out though as you grunted quite a bit before it squirted.

    Anyway it made me feel all funny, warm and tingly inside. :eek: and was a fundamental aspect to my win in Italy. Highly recommended.

    And if he runs around a bit, a short circuit.

    Rule 66b ...............arh I'd forgotten about that Simon !

    Rule 68c is for slack bum holes were the use of a nappy around the posterior to catch a loosely deposisited King Kongs finger when the competitors @rse hole falls out when faced with a final lane of standers.

    in this position, do you need the permission of the chief marshal to break wind, also whilst breaking wind do three points of contact deem the breaking of wind to be legal?
