7m was the closest target and AFAIK 58yrds was the furthest.
Hungary had the most reduced kills at 50% (not a problem as there was little to no wind)
I quite enjoyed the reduced kills used in compulsory lanes in Hungary (I think there were a few in Germany also).

I think it would be good to get all the rules from al the nations to take a look at and see where the similarities and differences are, and make a head start in a set of commen rules. I believe the rules should be along the lines of what is permittable in regards to course layout and not be every course must have, must do etc as the different cultural aspect of each countries take on FT is what keeps it interesting and adds to the experience.
Yes, I started this post just to see what sort of differences there are and see if there were any major sticking points. I have no problem with small kill zones (except when I miss them!) and I like variation in the layouts. I started shooting the GP's just to see more courses and get more experience.

Thanks for all the replies.

I don't think many mind that much, after all it's the same for everyone. Indeed, even whatever the rules are, it's the same. It's just the apprehension before a major event of "what's changed now" that should be avoided.

From an organisational point of view there's issues as well that crop up.

Don't worry, we're pressing hard. The EFTA is concentrating on the immediate issues, and then we'll crack on with the main concerns as soon as we're done with those.

8 - 50mtrs (the same deal...) and 40 & 25mm HitZones
You need two things in life - WD40 & duct tape. If it moves and it shouldn't, use the duct tape. If it should and it don't, use the WD40.
