If there has to be a qualification type of event to decide who the few out of a prospective many get to go, let's not decide it by lumping everyone together and taking the top scorers, other wise it will end up as the top PCP AA grade shooters only.
Paul ,you are quite correct it will end up "as the top PCP AA grade shooters" the Juniors,Ladies, and spring gun shooters were all forgotten about after the 2006 home International in Scotland. Two juniors were dragged up to Scotland to make the England team numbers up, as shooters from the rest of England wouldnt attend. The assurance was that they wuoldnt be left out of further England teams , well the rest is just history.
