On it being better for the lower grades it's not opinion Coop, how do you think I learned so much and got out of B?

It wasn't by shooting nails courses week in week out, it was by shooting more balanced courses that had something for everyone so I could actually learn from my mistakes. The Difference is there for you to see mate, the difference in % is almost a grade, same with Phil. Of course putting those extra 10 targets over 50 won't help anyone new will it? I've also put the work in as well.

It's also available if you look who's gone up and gone down, it's all there, just take a look. If this is about everybody then you need to consider everyone, just look at the movement (or lack of) and new people joining vs leaving - it's almost static, that's not the future is it?

It's true I don't like the grading system because I don't find it accurate in a sport that's about accuracy, the irony isn't lost on me. But I don't agree with the award of 100% for not hitting 100%, the use of Mean as an average or regional difference - accurate stats they do not make and Regional difference proves that - I've shot around with people in A from different areas that would be in the bottom of B in NEFTA but the stats are there for you, I don't need to prove that, it's already fact.

As I've said several time I really don't mind which way the votes goes but I do believe you are missing an opportunity.

I'll just leave this here and you can chin at me on the silli's on Saturday

Regarding what your saying about the grades, if some one wins a shoot on a dead calm day scores 50x50 gets 100% and at the next shoot top score is 42x50 at say some where like sywell in strong wind are you saying the guy who has shot in tougher conditions won the shoot on a 42 shouldn't be awarded 100% ??? Your not taking into account the different conditions from shoot to shoot with your way of thinking
