By defining what is the OBJECTIVE of creating a class, you also need to define the intent. A few HYPOTHETICAL examples I've stated before:
"UNLIMITED CLASS is the class the we (AAFTA) hope will push the limits of technology looking for the benefit of the sport. As such NO LIMITS are placed on positions, equipment, or techniques, the ONLY restriction being that the equipment and shooting arrangements needs to be transported from one lane to the next without any mechanical aids or means, the intent of the Unlimited Class is to provide expansion and growing room for all the marvelous ingenuity of shooters and tinkerers".
"SPORTER CLASS is the class the has been created to host all those that look at FT as a HUNTING SIMULATION game. Therefore, the highest restrictions are put on the rifle (has to have a factory issued stock or a stock with a forearm not extending past ½" UNDER the trigger blade. NO adjustability is allowable on these stocks. Scopes will be restricted to 16X being that that level of magnification is common and inexpensive to obtain in the current market. Sporter class has two divisions: OEM class where the rifle, scope and pellets have to be "as issued" from the manufacturer, and CUSTOM, where usual for hunting modifications are allowed. It is the intent that Sporter-OEM will be the entry level for most shooters into FT, therefore no mechanical supports, or special items of clothing of any kind are allowed, the sling can be used in any of the positions as long as it is a carrying sling"
"WFTF CLASS is a heavily restricted class that abides by the World's Field Target Federation Core Rules. As such, the Intent of this class is to define who is the better shooter and therefore precise and severe limits will be enforced at all shoots. WFTF class is needed as a benchmark of how we, as a country, are performing in relation to other countries. WFTF class shooters are ESPECIALLY expected to be sportsmen in good physical condition and with a good sportsmanslike attitude, as ambassadors to World type shoots they will represent the best of American Air Riflemanship"
"Veterans and Shooters with Different Abilities (VADA) Class is the class created for anyone that needs AND WANTS TO MAKE special considerations for mobility, age, or any other well-sustained reason. It is created in order to give the room and the space for everyone with special needs to shoot, enjoy the outdoors, the friendship and the respect every dedicated shooter deserves. MD's will review any special needs and or conditions. Anyone over 60 years of age can opt to enter into the VADA class. VADA scores will only compete against VADA scores."
And so on and on and on.
It is not up to US to define spirit or intent, what is needed is that it IS defined.
