Hosting additional classes is well within AAFTA rules...

Let's not forget (as shown below), that AAFTA rules allow for clubs being creative to cater to their shooters.
So within existing rules clubs can implement of a lot of the suggestions posted in the threads below.
For example: hosting classes by skill level or by equipment restrictions, like a "break-barrel only" class.

Plus, at the local club level matches need not adhere to strict AAFTA rules, so hosting an Unlimited or Freestyle class is fine!

As it is, Open shooters don't want their rules changed, so it seems to me that Unlimited/Freestyle would have to be a new division.
Question is, can we justify that based on numbers?... Well, local clubs can host that class and let the numbers speak for themselves.

Bottom line,
Clubs are not gated from doing what they think is best for their members & newcomers.


=== Cut-paste from AAFTA Handbook ===
Additional Classes
The Match Director may provide additional classes to any of the divisions. These classes are generally based on restrictions to equipment usage or target types. Classes are generally only offered if there are enough shooters to justify them. Examples of classes within a division could be A & B, or Senior & Junior. Match Directors should determine the specifics of any classes they wish to make available at a particular match and outline them in the match announcement when possible.
