If the majority were to say go for any of the options above for example no 3 and part of the risk is that it may attract legal action then so be it its what the majority will have asked for. Deal with that head on if in the very unlikely event that a case could be brought against an association. In times gone by the voting system was correct for the needs but as the sport has evolved and clubs are now hosting plinkers and hft shooters then the system perhaps needs review technology in the past would not have easily allowed national independent voting but now a days the technology is there to do it.
Dave with you on the voting to a degree but let's not ignore the grassroots of the sport in favour of the perceived elite, their is room for national/regional/club shooters in this sport and where appropriate all views are valid. Also any kind of binding vote can take place only when the issue has been explored fully and carefully, looking at both pros and cons of any proposal, not in a position when hysteria can develop and bad, knee-**** decisions are took.
