PS reminds me of a comp i went to years back where on a standing lane they made available a box for the smaller shooters to use . when i asked about it , i was told that it was to good a target to miss up on . i never found out if anybody fell off it ?
Your missing the point. I think it was ok. Challenging in the true sense of the word, but ok. Your right i'll make it complicated here, because i've been in enough BFTA meetings to know how complex it gets there... and how it falls on it's backside out there when joe marshall has to deal with someone saying "hmm, don't think this is flat ". All you're going to get is the same debate we have here about how steep is too steep. Or someone saying that bit is flat, but i want to sit like this and this is in the way.

Someone slipped in all hamsters should be flat for the WFTF. No definition of what a hamster is, what is flat, angled, stippled, flat with lumps in etc... total cock-up of a rule that the EFTA objected to. It's being removed after Germany, but till then it holds.

I'd be in on it if it was like crazy golf, or dangerous. But we're talking about a gentle incline. Your right, BFTA shoots should be open to everyone. But I don't think a natural environment should be made to fit everyone. The point of the competition is to fit your shooting to the environment, not the other way around. Well that's my opinion anyway.
