The problems with the rules are largely 2 fold...
1) there arent, in most people's opinion, enough core rules to give a working uniformity to the events
2) more importantly, there is no mechanism of ensuring these rules are followed... perhaps that needs to be in the rules?
As ever, no set of rules is perfect, even ISSF rules can have a hole punched clean through them, and by the strict interpretation of them many world records and medals would have to be stripped... but as ever, with good will and everyone understanding the song sheet to sing from, it isn't neccessary, but we do have these problems now and then like any other org.
Hopefully though, they can be fixed, with urgent attention. The EFTA has raised again concerns to the WFTF chair, so lets see what shakes loose.
