It's a shame we visit certain clubs in the CSFTA Winter League who do not have one shooter who competes in the winter league. I wonder if they are only in it for the income.

My Money, and Woddys fr that is on Newbury to be too wet and cancel? Anyone else got any better hope?
Wafta and swefta have shot Summer for many years, Mfta, Nefta and Nwfta also of late. I see no reason for all regions not to have a summer league as there are definately some who don't shoot winter due to cold etc.
Proposal form AGM then Barry I think?
Oaktree Covered range is limited to 2 sitting and 1 standing lol
I think the problem for Ft clubs id they don't always mix well as a general club? Take Tondu.
3 and half people when I re-joined it in 2006. I put in a lot of hard work and argument to build the club up, eventually finishing with covered two x covered Zero range, permanent courses, grading the Road flattish! By 2016 we had got g to 60 members. Around, 10 of those were Ft. So we went from 100% Ft members to 16% ish. Now while I was running things that was not so much of a problem as I had a way (helping others) of getting non Ft shooters to help build /run our Ft events.
But since leaving there are now only about 4 occasional ft shooters in the club with little or no maintenance of the Ft ranges, but plenty on the plinking range!
1 or 2 are trying to keep Ft going in the club, but its on the verge of extinction ?
Least we have the option of going there for now!
Is the (Csfta) answer to only have Ft events at clubs that have a Team perhaps?
What would that limit the region to?
That may well be only 4 from 6 for me in 2021?
Perhaps a summer Csfta league is needed, more people like shooting in the warmer weather than the wet!
Id rather have the clubs to visit as an option, than just stuck with say 4 grounds as is the case in Nwfta. There are more clubs there, but they don't have ft shooters. At least by visiting grounds with no Ft shooters currently, it may encourage some who see ft in action, to have a go?
