Moving position mid lane does make things harder, but it's all about the one shot per target for me. Being able to move safely is either something you can or can't do.

I do question, in seriousness, if people cannot get up and down from a position, shoot on an incline, move, all in safety of themselves, their gear and their fellow competitors if they should be on the course. If they know that's a problem then they can always ask for help getting up or down. It's no where near an extreme sport and people from all ages, sizes, and shapes still put in top scores.

FWIW I think the rule is wolly in definition. The more that some crow, the more others will look for loopholes and make life more difficult using them. It's a field sport. Adapt and overcome. Or else it may become an indoor sport just shot outside.
Not in anyway is that correct rob . i was gonna say utter piffle . but i won't . you are advocating elitism . not good . there is a challenging course . IE ETL ,they can lay out a very difficult course indeed , targets at all angles and heights . depending on the need .BUT i have never heard anybody complain of not being able to get into a safe shooting position , not once . you have to cater to all types shapes and sizes . not just the fit and able . start going down that route and you will end up shooting on your own . when i was 20 to 50 , i would probably have agreed with you . but having now seen the other side of the coin , NO . Reasonable positions to shoot from are not a luxory , they are a necessity ??? HOLLY

PS possibly people wanting more sensation should be doing free fall or bungee jumping ?
