cards that have been ammended
I seems to me that there is one easy way around this and that is that YOU not your partner should sign your card .this must be done on completion of the shoot .
If you find there is a problem with your partners numbers on your card you get a marshall and the three of you get in changed if your shooting partner has maybe put a one when it should have been a two but you dont sign it untill you are happy that your score card is complete and correct.
I defy any-one to tell me that if you know you have missed 2 targets and I tell you at the end of a shoot that you have scored a 58 you would not even look at the card and just hand it in the the score tent,but what if I marked a one down and changed it to a 2 instantly as I corrected my mistake and never told you as I thought the correction was OK ,your score card would be deducted 1 point for no reason as you yourself did not see that corrected mistake .
So my above proposed rule change would take all the onus off the UKAHFT and put it on to the individual to make sure his card was correct at the time of the completion of the shoot .
If there was a allteration on the card that had then not been signed by the marshall of the day then it must be deemed to have been done after the shoot was finished and his score for that target be given as a ZERO
IT HAS WORKED FOR THE GAME OF GOLF FOR HUNDREDS OF YEARS SO I;M THINKING IT MAY WORK FOR UKAHFT
and then maybe the people in charge could get the shoot-offs ready in peace.
