As for FT itself, i've heard an number of people say it has become more competitive... even though if anything the courses are thought to be harder. That said, I can think of a number of names I haven't seen much or haven't seen as much as i'd like to...but then most GP's are at capacity (if not over...Newbury).
The winter leagues in a lot of regions are strong to ok. (I consider 1:1 target to shooter as a minimum definition of a successful shoot)... I think that's where a lot of new faces have come from.
I think SFT has kicked off... in CSFTA there are a number of HFT'ers that shoot SFT in FT... and there are quite a few FT'ers that HFT as well... I don't see the numbers moving permanently over, but I think there's just more people prepared to go both ways these days. There were more SFT'ers at Newbury than C graders.
