So we have a new Protea team.
Can the SAFTAA chairman setup another Protea challenge similar to what we had last year?
If "yes", put me down to challenge Cor at every league from now on
"There will not be any long standing challenges. The challenger can only lay down a challenge on the day."
Chair you take away the essence of the challenge. Now each league you need to open a book of who challenges whom. The rivalry, the banter, the whole concept of I am going to beat you today and over a period of time. The bliss of revenge.The camaraderie of the handing over of the challenge prize, the kiss and make up liquid refreshments. The tales of the missed shot, the wind effect; Chair please think again.
Oh I like that, why not. Add a little more pressure, a little more niggle to bring out the beast of our Proteas. They need all the pressure that they can get at shoots to be able to get ready for the pressure of WORLDS. The leagues that they shoot from now until WORLDS must be able to build them up mentally for the challenge of the WORLDS competition.
Remember that tins of Pellets are on the line and these run dry at some point.
If things go like last year then the Proteas loose the first couple of leagues, due to slow down of training. And as their training etc kicks in they start winning again from July.
