Paula, I can't answer that. But reading the other kneeling thread suggests to me that shooters of the BFTA do want to contribute to a discussion about kneelers and perhaps the present system of regional representation didn't best allow them to do it.
Perhaps the BFTA needs to consider forum use to capture wider views about major rule changes.
This is for me an exercise to see if it works. It wasn't my intention to replicate the other thread.
There is no endorsement from the BFTA for me to do this and any outcome if proposed will be submitted to regions to vote upon.
