Surley the BFTA should be looking for some sponsorship form the trade, and working with them to promote the FT scene, somthing which it desperatly needs if it is going to develop.

Luckily to an extent I agree with you, I have been working hard with the Trade for the GP series as the Trade Liaison Officer for the BFTA. Luckily for me alot of people who attended Sywell GP last year saw a great amount of prizes obtained from the Trade that would have put any competition series to shame.

It worked out in the region of 7,000 worth of prizes were raffled off after the competition had finished.

This year I am hoping to get each GP round sponsored by an individual sponsor and then have a smaller prize giving at the last GP of the season. I will still hope for some big prizes there but not all of them at 1 location. It is easier for myself to handle on the day....
