It's assumed that the top shooter in a series will be of roughly the same performance therefore it allows a comparison to be made. You cannot use targets because on an easy windless day you may hit 40 and on a hard windy course you may hit 20. That means your position in the league may be elevated by you choosing to avoid windy shoots.
Then count every shoot, simple, how can you win by not showing up? In FT apparently!

I've never been a fan of the false 100% and never will be, give me the facts and reversible % any day of the week.

Look here at the difference in % from pure hits vs top shooter/course, it's out by 5%

Yeah I know it's all relative but still and that would boot a few people out of A wouldn't it!

You can't arbitarily make 18 shoots. There are the national shoots and the others aren't.
Why not? BFTA Winter League, one shoot in each region for example. I'd do them all.

There'd be no need for grade % because you could use the position in the series. There'd be no need to publish 20 because youd be able to see the series. Make all the other shoots opens without grades (which many are). Leave the regions to their own series.

It solves a lot of issues.
Visible data is great Rob, use it to further the sport and create talking points, make it look nice. I'm a big fan of grades, leagues and updates, I any many others at the bottom love this stuff. I know you and Bri are fans of Si updating the grades as we go but I love it.
