Funnily enough Colin it's thinking like this that stopped me helping to organize the Worlds, in 2011 when I won I should have been ecstatic I instead had to walk away before I lost it:

On the last day I got called to a shooter who wanted to lay on his beanbag as he thought that target was unfair to a shorter shooter, when I pointed out that this wasn't allowed & they could put an official complaint to the organizing committee I was told we would just sweep it under the carpet.

On STB while most were congratulating me on the win, one person suggested that it was a shame the best shooters weren't allowed to compete with a level playing field. The day after the shoot I received an email from a Dutch shooter saying I shouldn't have been allowed to compete due to being an organizer.

Feck knows why I still bother to run the website & spend my time doing all the scores over the weekend
