Response to Hosting additional classes is well within AAFTA rules...
I need to add that one of the preeminent duties of a national governing board in ANY sport is the keeping of sensible and useful statistics.
Even more so when, like in our case, our culture is democratic, but our RGB is "parliamentary".
To be quite frank, unless there is an official record-keeping, an " Additional class" at Club level has the same value as inviting friends over to the backyard for a plinking session over some steaks and beers.
Without more and better statistics that can be drilled down to individual level, the decisions will be taken by what a few feel is the majority's will.
In Europe and the rest of the World, FT is banking it's success and growth in attracting Target Shooters, to the detriment of FT's roots and origins.
In a country of Riflemen and Hunters (over 50 million) we should be taking a different route. It's simple logic.
Let's hope that this year's vote will show with more authority than in the past what is the constituency's will.
Keep well and shoot straight.
