This has upset some because they feel that the event is not necessarily identifying the best shooter with restrictions on individual entries.

A can of worms!
Thanks Shaun, naively I thought it was going to be a simple answer. I think I'll just wait to see if I ever get good enough to get into a qualifing match.
Cheers mate
