The three man team event Chris Large ran a few years ago was very successfull so something like that might be good if someone is willing to organise it.
I do think that grades should be ignored completely, it complicates matters too much. We have enough problems selecting shooters for teams that are willing to travel to enough GPs without further restrictions. Remember these are competitions to find 'the best'
Whatever is done the Constructors theme I believe needs to stay as a way of linking the BFTA and FT with the manufacturers (which may possibly include, for example scope makers) which should benefit all even if it isn't always obvious.
This is complicated isn't it?
I would be happy to organise the "Club" team competition for the Gp series. Take names, keep scores etc.
Might even be able to organise a Team trophy + Prize money ??
Quite agree with James on the 3 man team format, any grade but obviuosly mst be from the same club
I dont like points, I prefere targets hit. I would prefere the results done just on targets hit.
Something perhaps I will put together next week and have proposed at the BFTA meeting in November
