On the matter of SWEFTA's difficult courses allegedly not fitting our members to do well at the Inters, actually that's not got much to do with it. For whatever reason, many of our best shooters don't see being selected for the Inters as the pinnacle of their winter league achievement, and quite a lot of our best shots won't travel as far as Newbury for a 40 shot comp. I was comp sec for several years and we usually ended up with a team containing several names whom I thought would benefit from the experience, as we had no chance of winning and very little chance of being in the top three.
Don't propose that on my account, I have no problem with SWEFTA courses and their difficulty level. If I thought they were putting off newcomers then I would think again, but the youngsters in SWEFTA seem more than happy at the shoots.
