If they have a "Doctors note" that says they have a problem, then we have to be careful not to descriminate against any disability. So if you come to a shoot and have a note saying that you can't stand or kneel we have to support their needs, but I agree there should be no advantage gained. So bring on the doctors note stating you can't stand or kneel or just get on with it.

Coz in all the years i've been shooting i've only seen 2 doctors notes, the rest have all been word of mouth.

I agree with Doz. Maybe an idea could be that the BFTA introduces a `disabilty card` to all shooters who can show that their Doctor feels that shooting standing and kneeling is detramental to their health or totally incapable of doing such positions. This card can then be shown when booking in takes place. No one can argue then that people can legally shoot using the disabled positions.
