You will have to explain that one to me.
If someone forgets /fails to hand a card in or does something else that warrants them being given a score of 1, the resulting % will be around 3 ish.
That can make quite a big difference in an average score so it does not protect a shooters regional average at all, it drops it down very quickly!
Eg, your current rolling BFTA 20 % is 70.2% so your heading for B class in the summer for Bfta events, well done.
However, if you failed to hand your card in sunday at target fT event and got a low score, such as 3% it would drop you down into C again on 65. Least it would but I wont entered such daft scores for Bfta!
In Wafta however your currently on 77.6% which makes you potential A grade. 1 score of 3% or so puts you down to 67% and if two scores of 3 were entered you would drop to 59 and c class? So just one or two entries could see you drop down.
You would like to believe all shooters are always trying to go up, but I don't think its always the case
