I think with how technical the sport is becoming these things are going to be raised more and more and I feel sorry for the bfta rule makers and also for the marshals trying to interpret them all.

The burden is on the other shooter(s) who have to buddy-marshall. Given the issues why not consider a call for volunteers at GPs so that each discipline lane has a technical marshall i.e. someone who is comfortable with the rules (as instructed by the Chief Marshall) and can oversee each shooter for the kneeler and stander. 5 lanes in all?
Just what they do is up to BFTA, etc - override the score? issue warning? issue advice? photo?

Just a thought.
