I've shot in other regions for over a year now, every other Sunday and can say with 100% certainty that NEFTA courses are some of the hardest courses I've ever shot and continue to be so, maybe you should reverse the question.
I agree with what Brian is saying about using the extra 10 targets to stop AA clearance, that won't encourage anyone but those that are hungry to better themselves.
Just a comment about the first line of your post.
Please take a look at the past score sheets and the ungraded shooters are around the 10% mark These shooters it would appear are shooting to get themselves a grade as they have not competed in enough comps to obtain a grade That in my book would mean they are "new shooters" So i think the method is working ???
