Why don't you put it to a vote at the BFTA Champs. Add an extra lane, put up 3 targets (but pellet catchers behind so that someone can count the votes ) and mark them "15 to count, 9 to count, 6 to count" or whatever.
But no Chicago voting tactics (vote early and often) :-)
Out of curiosity - what are the residence qualifications to be in a region or national team. The way soccer, rugby, cricket is these days just about anything can be claimed :-)
