I am in no way offended mate by your comments. I did not intend my comment to read as blackmail of a lower form. My comment was my own feelings on the matter.
There are 11 clubs in NEFTA. Last year there was only 7 clubs out of the 11 which offered to host one of the 6 NEFTA Hunter rounds during 2009. I am just concerned that negative comments posted on open forums could lead to even less clubs applying to hold a round during 2010. I would prefer that any negative comments regarding issues with NEFTA Hunter courses are taken up with the NEFTA committee via the club rep.

Therefore lots of disgruntled shooters due to the course not meeting the format. Answer to this, follow the format, job's a good 'un! There was also other shots that didn't meet the format too, or so I'm led to believe.
As I stated in my earlier post, the Ponte course setters used the initial NEFTA Hunter Series course rules (which do not state that targets should be able to be seen from the prone position).
