    Simon.
    Looking at my list Round 8 was at Tondu TC on 8th Sep so Oaktree should be No9, Castleton No10.

    I think Oaktree is still round 1, Castleton round 2, but both events moved back a week.

    WAFTA web site is a waste of time, it gives no relevant information whatsoever.

    Just to add to the confusion.......

    Does anyone know what's happening with grades and shoot rules?

    At the Blaenau shoot (start of last series) a meeting was held and it was decided that any shooter could elect to go up a grade, but only for one series. Whatever your BFTA rolling twenty grade was at the end of the series would be locked in for the next series. A point was made there would be no electing to go up a grade. Has there been a change of plan on this?

    Also, the last event at Target wasn't shot to BFTA rules because, apparently, they don't apply to WAFTA shoots? This created some confusion, can someone please clarify what rules will be used for the coming series please.

    This is what you will find on the WAFTA site regarding anything to do with grading.

    CHAIRMANS REPORT 2012

    As of October 2012, WAFTA has changed its shooting calender to a year round series from October – September
    16 rounds, 12 best scores to count.
    A rolling average score will be implemented, possibly a rolling 16 and the scores like Bfta and other regions will now be done on % not points.

    Seems so;)


    I am sure if you have the time the Wafta web master would welcome input from you or others to help update things, not just shoot dates but perhaps photos, reports etc.
    Its your wafta :confused:

    I suspect you need to contact John johnston for full details?
    Common sense would dictate that the 2012/13 Wafta rolling % is carrried over to 2013/14?
    Otherwise, if a clean slate arrives every October then it opens the loopholes for ringing!!


    I am not sure about the details of the B/g shoot, i dont recall those "rules" being put down and I would have thaught the wafta AGM is the only place, baring an Egm they could be set.
    Any shooter should be able to go up a grade or more, but neve down unless re-graded.

    I was not at the Target Shoot, Could you expand on what Bfta Rules were broken please Chris?

    I am sure wafta constitution says Wafta shoots are shot to bfta rules?

    Hope that helps

    The last series started at Avon Hawks. There were some arguments because WAFTA had no rule allowing a shooter to elect up to a higher grade. An emergency meeting was held on the morning of the next shoot (Blaenau). The result of the meeting, as I recall, was that shooters could elect to go up a single grade and that all shooters must elect to go up by the third shoot of the series. This was a one series deal and that the next series would be shot with grades locked down. Notes were recorded at the meeting so perhaps these need to be dug out as my recollection may be slightly off.

    Gary's right about the standers being over the combined distance, not a big problem but if WAFTA shoots are not to BFTA rules then what rules are there? The standing lane was flagged up before any shooters had shot it and the reply was "the course doesn't need to be to BFTA rules, it's WAFTA main rules today". If that is correct then where are the main rules for WAFTA?

    It would be nice to know before the first shoot so people aren't arguing over grades again. Finally, if WAFTA are using their own rules can the scores be put into the BFTA rolling twenty?
