GP's are for ALL grades, not just AA, that is why good GP scores lead to qualification for the showdown which is for the top shooters.
Personally I feel the quality of the courses so far have been good apart from a number of small issues (which I am not going to go into right now) and by and large we have got them about right (which is illustrated by how many clearances happen). Make courses too difficult and you will end up with shoots of maybe 20-30odd AA shooters instead of the 160 shooters of ALL grades that come to ENJOY these events.
