If we take the UKAHFT website for instance.... once the cards are in it takes me 6-8hrs to check all the cards, collate the scores, enter them into the spreadsheet & then create & alter the relevant webpages, to do this I take a day off work on the Monday after competition so that shooters can view their scores as soon as possible......would I do this just to benefit another site who haven't contributed to the process & may actually be harming our events..... NOT A CHANCE
Ditto Pete. With the DMHS and Kibby series. I am not going to be merely a contributor to somebody else's site. I don't want our sponsors, nor anybody elses to be forced into withdrawing support. I do feel that maybe ********** is trying to build his site up for his own gain and in his words (BE BIG) and in a recent email he sent me, (The UK series needs me, my site will be bigger than the whole of the UK series an be nothing without me). I believe his intentions are to force sponsors into supporting his site as all the traffic would be there and would profit himself.
His comments and actions to myself and other series organisers and stato's have been rude, underhanded and simply just not in the manner of which I have become accustomed to in the sport and this is why his site has been met with such force. I do not want, as a member of the DMHS and Kibby comitee, to be associated with this attitude and approach, thus deciding that the DMHS would refrain from our data being used.
