be interesting to see if the inclusion of pistion at Euro draws more etries, as it has been said having no grades in pcp at euro puts some lower grade shooters off. Perhaps some of those that have been put off will give spring a go?

Shoots need support from all grades to make the comps viable, if courses were altered to prevent the best shooters from clearing, normal shooters would get their ***** handed to them comp after comp, nobody travels thousands of miles per year for that.
If a good shooter clears a course, that's brilliant, they should be congratulated for keeping it together and beating the course. Its not a reason to punish all the other shooters.

Thing is, Gp scores are on the rise in all grades. Personally I enjoyed quarry more than any of the others due to the harder challenge of the wind. I think most courses have had a good balance of targets, bar the over riding inclusion of 25mm kills past 30 yards and 15 mm @ 20+
Thank God for Sywell next year!

As I think was said, that's the same for C, B and A potentially.

Have you tried practising on 40mm

And that, but I think I went for 40?

The 100% thing was to try to set a benchmark for the course difficulty, but what we're seeing alot these days is the top score is either 50 or 49 anyway regardless of how difficult the course is
Apart from Quarry, where there was difficulty to the course. Cant say I rate any of the other 5 gp as that hard, mainly due to lack of wind.
