One of my bugbears with some clubs (i'm not going to say all because I don't know, and i'm sure some great work is carried out somewhere) is the lack of training for new/young shooters. Maybe the shooting line of a comp is not the place for coaching, but an old hand or a top shooter handing down tips or experiance to a new/young/lower grade shooter can only be a positive thing for the sport as a whole. It will be a sad day when we cannot discuss this for fear of breaking the rules. As for pointing out a mistake prior to a shot taking place i'm tending to think that as sporting behaviour, but if that falls foul of the "coaching rule" then maybe a way round is for a group together to pull strings and establish the right targets together as a group so that no-one is advantaged or disadvantaged?
At castle ftc, mr danials has spent a lot of time coaching young chloe, and at one of our club shoots she beat, mr danials and tied with me 36x40, also he has taught her a lot of interesting swear words fair play to big neil..
