It's not the winning, it's the thought that counts
Tighter competion is what i would like to see rob.
Its like the home internatioanls, a complete waste of time (apart from a scottish **** up) as Scotland nor Wales could put in as strong a side as England.
The only thing that could have been done there was to put an easier course out so the lower grade shooter that (for example) wales had in the side could still put in a good score. It never happened though and courses were always hard which suited the side with the largest number of AA shooters, England. did they ever loose a home international?

So where as now we have 10 Mfta (for example) shooters that will put in 35 at newbury, Wafta (e.g.) may only have 6 that can match 35 and four that will be 30.
so really unless regions are happy just making the numbers up to me the inters is not truly a Uk wide regional, its just two or perhaps three every now and again.

So its not always the pushover you may think
Perhaps so, but I think it would be better if every region had a good chance of winning?

Well it in theory would suit Mfta and Nefta if it stays as it is. however if the other regions voted for it it could change for 2013. As i said, just an idea after talking to shooters from various regions.
As it happens Mark, I am likley to be shooting mfta for winter again 2012/13 and may even be a mfta shooter, as is my travelling partner Peter Jacob.
In all honesty I think both of us could qualify for either team on recent standards?

Redfearns finally cleaned up in the team events but it did seem quite close for a while
so making the teams slightly smaller did potentially work then Dave?

As son of yours has pointed out with two of the strongest mfta shooters switching to Nefta for 2013 it will only make Nefta even harder to beat next year?
