    Default How does the National Ranking contribute to National Trials?

    I was wondering, how does the national ranking work?
    Which ranking's points will contribute to our score for the Nationals.

    Do we take the average of the year + the average of the shoots from the kickoff and add them together to get an overall percentage or ranking, or do we use the ranking as it stands now after the kickoff?

    And if we use them together, where can we see the standings?

    hi piet i think the average from your best 6 provincials from after last years nationals is used as 30% and your average at the nationals as 70% ....so if your average of your 6 best of provincials is 100% you then have 30% before you even shoot the nationals....

    Careful Piet! The same thing might happen to you that happened to you with the hunting rifle competition. Have a bad day and you are stuffed.Very unfair, I say.

    Do not think it's that unfair you will have to have 3 bad rounds over 2 day's. That will definitely be more than just bad luck.

    Lukas,
    No Pal,
    Piet misjudged the wind on ONE range out of THREE, ONE day out of TWO days shooting and he missed the team with .7%.
    Redicules. I will never be convinced that the new team can consist of the best shots in SA. Sorry.

    If he misjudged the wind and the guy next to him reads the wind correctly who should be in the team?
    Unfortunately with any sport you have to be able to perform on the day. The only way to ensure that the best in a sport gets selected for a national team is to make them perform on the day.
    I have been through this in my life more than ones you can have the best time in the 400m for the season but if you can not make the finals at the National trials due to “bad luck” you do not get selected for any thing.
    In FT you at least get 30% of what you had through the year.

    i also think it is unfair... you should be judged on your consitency through out the year because this shows who are the good shooters....if you are No. 1 and your rifle blows a seal or some thing you wont be in the team even though you are the best shooter....


    last year the guys ranked 1-6 on the log where also 1-6 in the national team....

    to me your consistency over a long periode of time is MUCH more inmportant than your luck on 2 days because it shows you can consistantly handle pressure!!


    your national ranking should at least count 50% in my eyes...

    if you are a good shooter it does NOT matter whether it is a PRIVINCIAL, NATIONAL or WORLDCHAMPIONSHIPS . if you shoot well in one you can shoot well in anothers!!!


    So if you are the one of the best shooters in SA as far as provincial are concerned then the nationals are just another shoot but one that a bit of bad luck or a one bad day means that your record of good shooting means nothing!!


    30% is ridiculus for some thing that means as much or more than 2 days!!!.....................

    Big match temprament .Piet has told me that how many times .At worlds the World champ is taken from 3 shoots at 1 time.So if you duff it there you go home with just stories.

    All shooters would like the system that puts them closest to the top of the pile.

    The system we use is fair in the fact that your consistancy is looked at and your BMT is respectfully given its place.

    You want an SA champ that can perform when the chips are down
