I say drop four points if you call a target and it's fine when checked.
That will stop em.
In the NEFTA hunter series Andy if you call a target and it's ok then you get a 0.
It's pretty obvious that targets CAN be faulty and can be faulty even after checking...there was one at Cambridge a few years ago that i helped check (not a UKAHFT round) but what frustrated me at the weekend was that the Chief Marshal checked target 7 (Yes i was incorrect before) after the other marshals had checked it previously and declared it sound for it to be called by the next group through.
