How things are changed

Response to Each Club how designated AAFTA representative

As best I can tell there are two ways rules get changed in AAFTA

1) The process Hector describes here. In the past I have discussed with a couple of BOG members why is it that some of the more contentious or controversial issues are not addressed. The answer was always "no one asked for a change, the BOG does not act on Yellow Forum ramblings". This path does not necessarily mean the request will receive consideration as the BOG has final say on what is presented to the member clubs for voting.

2) The BOG decides to change rules as they see fit with no vote from the member clubs. All you have to do is look at the rule changes in the last couple of years and you will see this is clearly where most rule changes come from. One of the more controversial, if I remember correctly, was when one day we found out that scopes with a maximum power setting greater than 12x were no longer legal in hunter pistol field target, when they had been the day before. I think many PFT participants gave up PFT rather than buy a new scope.
