Farming of cards. Stuart Doyle 2001-09-02 20:37
Everybody knows the people who farm thier cards in thier own club. Maybe its time the clubs themselves talked to these people, its in thier own best interst to weed these cheats out. it will encourage the newer shooters to stay and that thier efforts will be rewarded by having an honest and level playing field.

The clubs are the grassroots of the sport, if they can stamp this out then the assn. as a whole will benefit.

If a club finds that this may cause a problem within its own membership, they could pass the shooters name on to the council who then approach the shooter and inform them that thier habits must change.

If the shooter in question quits the sport. is it really a loss? i dont think so, because the gains in retaining members and having new members and maybe former members rejoin will far out way the loss of a few cheats.

We have to be tough on these people and turning a blind-eye is not the answer. we know who they are so lets straighten them out or kick them out!

Having requested the NZCTA council to reinstate the guestbook on the association website, I am very disappointed that they have chosen to replace it with this Non-user friendly discussion forum. The old guestbook system was easy to understand and use, as proven by the number of members who were posting their comments on it. By contrast, in over three months operation only 4 members have utilised this new forum. I am reasonably computer literate and yet it has taken me nearly half an hour to go through the registration process having first of all been issued an invalid password.

I urge the Council to revisit the old style guestbook which obviously found favor with the members in its simplicity of use.

Its well over a week now since I posted my original comments about this forum and yet not a single reply from either members or the NZCTA Council has been made. If this keeps up I will very soon stop visiting the site myself so I trust our own Governing body will quickly review the lack of success they have achieved with this type of forum and revert back to the original guestbook which was easy to understand and getting used.

I tend to agree with "easty" and think that the NZCTA has lost ground with its members by moving away from the previous guest book format for discussions into an an overly complex and fussy forum page for messages.

The process must be simple as our shooters come from a very broad spectrum of the populus - farmers thru financers and all with varying degrees of IT skills.

Full kudos to the Canty CTC for keeping members informed about the upcoming " worlds" and could we have a little more info about the call for Ref's ie duties, pay rates, selection criteria etc.

World DTL Entries easty 2001-11-07 16:50
Due to the recent terrorist acts in the USA a number of American shooters have pulled out of next years World DTL Champs in New Zealand. We have now been able to accomodate all those who were on the reserve list and currently have about 20 places still available. If you are interested in shooting in this event please contact Bev Searle on searlefamily@xtra.co.nz who will forward entry forms and event information.

Lack of results and news etc... skeeter 2002-01-17 22:10
It now has been over a month since the completion of the 2002 Westland Provincials and not a single word on this site let alone the actual results.

Very, very tardy NZCTA exec. and wether the reason lies with the Barrytown club or the National Sec. it is simply not good enough if you are at all serious about providing an information platform for the shooters with this site. This simply has to improve or shooters will not visit . This your wake up call.

Do the members of Council actually visit this forum. 4 months ago I asked the question as to why they had blessed us with such a cumbersome system and not reinstated the original and popular guestbook. I have received no response from any member of council which begs the question "do they know how to use this forum themselves?".

Judging by the amount of postings made (3 since Christmas) I would strongly urge Council to revisit the format of this discussion page so that it encourages members to post their comments. The amount of viewings of the few posts that are made indicate that the forum is visited by many so I can only assume that it is proving to complicated for those visitors to respond with their comments.

Council are constantly urging it's members to embrace this new technology and support it's website, properly structured this discussion forum could be an invaluable source of member feedback, it just needs to be user friendly.

As with most things, anything "new" can seem complex to some people. You just have to take the plunge and start using it so it becomes familiar . . . next thing you know, its easy!

Perhaps they are all too busy shooting to investigate and use the technology available.

Personally I feel that this is a very valuable tool that the Association has provided. I did not realise this was available until I figured out that the button was actually for a forum.

I shall let our shooters know (those who have the technology) that this forum is here.

Good Luck with the Council.

spoting/fitasc in New zealand will 2002-05-16 13:10
Hi my name is Steve Williams. I am currently living in England but hope to move to NZ with my family as soon as possible.I am a keen shooting/ fishing man and also shoot clays,mostly sporting and fitasc.There are thousands of questions I would like to ask but you would be bored stupid,so I have narrowed it down to 3.

1/ Where are most of the sporting/fitasc grounds in NZ.

2/ Does sporting shooting in NZ have a good following.

3/ Does anybody have any contacts in the electrical industry so that I can enquire about job prospects as an electrician.

I dont want to start waffling on and on,but any imformation that anybody thinks would help,I would be very gratefull.

Many thanks steve
