Ive shot at the Euros for the last three/four years now (i think) and every year bar this one ive had Joe public come up to me and ask questions, have a look at the rifle etc, this year over the two days i had one chap ask me what distances we shoot and that was it
I also think the course suffered this year and to me having targets stuck on a pole in an open space is boring to shoot and also to watch. Again im not having a go at the course setters but the feel and atmosphere of the original course has been lost plus we are now hidden away from the public. We at Tawd Vale do a country fair a couple of times a year and we do a "have a go" FT stand where the public (under supervision) can use the equipment we actually use. We also have a permanently manned desk with FT/HFT outfits on display along with targets and printed cards with contact details so they can see what its all about. We usually pick up a couple of members each time so it obviously works. Surely we can arrange something similar for the Euros?
