The truth is that C graders are already discouraged from shooting GP's, not by the difficulty of the course, but by ringers shooting AA scores picking up cheap trophies by shooting in the lowest grade they can.
Personally I would prefer a midland summer league for those of us not considered good enough for GP's, or people who don't like 50 shot courses. We could shoot the same day as GP's so we wouldn't get in the way and I would prefer if it was ungraded, just people turning up and shooting because they enjoy it.
Ringers are a problem. I would hope finally this year something is put in place to deal with the problem.
I dont see why the midland region cant run a summer series shoot, perhaps yopu can look into that and gwet things rolling? Other regions do it. I dont however think shooting the same day as Gp is the answer?
When a club (usually just a few members of a club) puts the effort into putting on a shoot, it usually is nice to be rewarded with as big a turnout as possible. Gp shooters not in attandance is not the answer?
