Response to My understanding is that this match

There are too many difference between the WFTF rules and AAFTA rules. Besides requiring the offering of all normal AAFTA classes, and strictly following AAFTA rules and guidlines, it also needs to conform to a specific "Troyer Rating" schedule etc.

This match not only uses euro-spec guns and power level, as well as Euro-spec clothing rules, but also uses Euro spec target color combo's and settings, WFTF-compliant target and lane markings, KZ sizes, and distance requirements that make it a different scenario than most, if not all AAFTA GP events.

Since its a one class only event as well, it differs there too.

And, though it closely matches most Euro type events (except two day instead of three-day), the typical windy conditions at the Temecula venue are seemingly worse than most World matches I've researched, being mostly out in the open rather than in more woooded terrain.

Finally, a lot might be made about the inclusion of the bipod and stool allowance (to be used together) in the equipent specs, but its a well-considered inclusion, as it will allow some folks otherwise unable to compete to do so, and equally importantly it should show more people that the bucket and sticks position is NOT "like bechrest", and in fact isn't quite so stable as shooting off the knee from a bumbag. Remeber rifle, scope specs, and clothing requirements are the same for all.

I predict the top guys will still be the more experienced off the knee shooters, but I'm hoping some of them will at least experiment with the stool/bipod setup as well for learning experience.
