i will still say the short fall on yesterdays courese not complying to ukahft was my fault as i checked the course and not ponty ps we all still had a good day
luv yas all
I'm sorry Trev but I can't agree with you
The vetters job is to check the course & hopefully spot any non format targets or safety problems that the course setters may have missed. On the two courses that caused problems this year it would have taken a few hours on the morning of the shoot to rectify the problems which would have put the start time back drastically even if the course setters had been willing to accept the changes.
Hopefully next year we won't have any of these issues as long as people realise the courses won't be set to the UKAHFT format.
