I am sorry but this is just not acceptable the EFTA has to have a rethink on this and come up with an acceptable solution.
Yes the reps were informed of the selection process when the committee of reps agreed it in September. It was also posted publicly on the 12th of that month on the EFTA sub forum of the bfta site. To date, since the meeting and the decision, there has been no objection raised by a region or any person for that matter. Nor has there been any question by any shooter, parent or guardian about selection policy for Germany for juniors.
The classes of shooters were circulated for feedback with the EFTA reps when the wftf proposed them. Again there was no objection raised by the committee then. The EFTA did raise concerns about there being enough places to accommodate class completion but the only classes enshrined are the pcp and springer. The others are subsets of the field's entry.
The EFTA does not dictate what happens in the wftf more than any one shooter or anyone else for that matter does in the EFTA. It's a democratic process as much as it can be. What is not acceptable is the suggestion that the EFTA has to do something just because someone thought about it and posted on the Internet about it somewhere. That approach, I would respectfully suggest, is the thing that needs the rethink.
