Response to Hector, I assume the affiliated clubs need to get a vote locally to have their officers

Gentlemen, this request is not asking for a free pass to heaven. Just a trial class at this years Nationals for a group on airgunners that have enjoyed shooting in this Freestyle / Unlimited class for a couple years now. I know of at least 8 to 10 dedicated FT Freestylers in AZ that most likely won't be attending a National in their home state because they don't have a class to shoot in. In the 2017 National FAQ someone asked if they could shoot Freestyle with out competing for awards. If I recall correctly the answer was "No" only AFFTA approved classes can participate. (This may not be exact wording but the sum of it is the same) It seems growing the sport is coming very political and it is only going to hurt FT not help it. This isn't a request for blood its only for a TRIAL class a this years Nationals as we did for our Hunter Class and WFTF class some numbers of years ago! We still have 1 week shy of three months to make this happen. It isn't adding a new class ..... It will only replace one or two classes we have little participation in. I will pay for the awards out of my own pocket if money is the issue. I also won't be shooting it this year but it might entice me to switch in a future year if it was approved as a real AFFTA class.
