How about taking a day off work (shift worker that covers weekends), tank of fuel, entry fee and all the other associated costs. I thoroughly enjoy shooting HFT but seeing a comment like the one above hacks me right off. I do EXPECT a UKAHFT advertised course to meet the regulations. It's the reason I have travelled to shoot it.
If a club advertises it as such don't get upset when people are negative when it's not. I don't mean the odd mistake etc, I know what's involved setting a course and fully appreciate the work people put in to do so. If a club does not want to work to the guidelines/regulations then drop the UKAHFT tag.
