[QUOTE=Jamesy;103148]No, i don't agree with that Simon. QUOTE]

I am not sure I do either Ninja

Just thinking out loud and trying to look at it from ( i think) Ian's view plus some others?

Now in AA, if I come 8th place i get nothing.
By nothing, I am not looking for pressies, but a trophy, thats whats important to me, more on that later though.
Some days it dont seem right that someone is getting a trophy for hitting half what i have on that day. I really like the Bfta trophy and will be doing all i can to get a stander next year?

However, When back home sat in front of these pc's, I look at my bfta C, B and A grade tophies and think back to how good it felt recieving those.
At the time i did not realise i was not actually as good as i thaught.
These days I know i am not
Otherwise i would have got more than one AA trophy this year.
Reailistically to me what matters now is getting top 3 in AA, and thus a trophy, at least once a year.
Easily said, very hard to do as standards seem to go higher each year and more and more shooters can now win a major shoot.

Back to the Worlds. Personally my 3rd place trophy is my prize posession. I may never better it, but I will try.
have to admit that if i had come 6th (for example) and been given a trophy i probably would not look on it as such an achievment.
so is the problems not trophies, but prizes / cash?
In which case as i have said, if there is something for me should i ever win it so be. i have said what i would do with it.
If not then not problem, as long as i have a trophy and the memories.

Perhaps we should spend the prize money on more trophies?

and of course as long as I have beaten Fisher - again
