Waelwulfas, at all times there were at least 3 marshals on the course but they were spread over 25 lanes. If one of them failed to notice your situation and failed to act upon it please accept our apologies. Other than that I can only add that it is the BFTA that allocates the lanes.
I'm afraid it's not.
I, Shaun (the Competition Secretary) organised the lanes multiple times to accommodate 3 sessions and to help Millride; the responsibility for lane allocation rests with the organising club/region. Sam, kindly offered to help Millride at booking in. On Saturday night, having received 24 changes, Sam reorganised the cards. The plan was that there would only be 2 per lane in session 2. Before session 2 commenced, there was again multiple changes and unfortunately some of these changes did not get communicated. Also, a shooter from session 3 shot session 2!
The BFTA wasn't at GP1. I was, Shaun and so was Sam. Sam will get nothing but praise from me so ... it's my fault and I'm not the BFTA, I'm Shaun.
