Mandy, where did the original thought of this thread come from? Just wanted to know as not one person has ever thought about this topic in all the years I have ben shooting???
Just thought Id ask our little Norwegian petal heehee...
The thought has been brewing for a while. As you're all aware, we pride ourselves on keeping an informative website which has recorded all previous World's. One of the pictures missing here ... http://www.freewebs.com/nftac/wftfhallofchampions.htm
is Davinia's. Then I thought Duh ? I wonder ? Has BFTA's commitee checked ? What is the BFTA's ruling ? ... but found nothing ! .... and that, Gerty, is why I started asking. Unfortunately, nobody within the WFTF as yet, has answered my question .... here's a paragraph or two from the epost ...
3) The WFTF must have a defined strategy regarding Men in the Women's class and vice versa (!).
a) Because a shooter has man-boobs, long hair, wears eyeshadow, lipstick, chanel no.5 and likes donning a frock, doesn't qualify him for "women's class".
b) Does the tadger have to go in order for the competitor to be classed as a woman ? .
c) There again, if a woman has a sewn-on (not strap-on) tadger (that's *****..for our colleagues who are not so familiar with english slang..) then that really has no impact on entering the open class, as we don't have a men's class, though would assumedly close the door for entry in the women's class.
d) How do we reinforce an eventual ruling ? Identity parade's are obviously out of the question, so some form of doctor's statement would be necessary ....
Looking forward to your response .
Hope this answers your question ;0)
