This all sounds sensible to me, and in the true friendly spirit of the Hunter series that I have really enjoyed over the last five or six years.
The fact that new shooters can turn up with basic kit or FT kit, and be mentored or buddied by the old hands, is exactly how it should be without strict rules being enforced. And we all know a standard 400 can do he business in the Hunter series.
I enjoy nothing more than seeing new shooters having a go, young or old, and the Hunter series is the perfect series to learn and enjoy the sport, and have fun.
Can I suggest not having Burgers in the rules though! as I like to know what meat I am eating!
I will stick to bacon butties.
