Hi Chris,
I'm sorry you were disappointed at the trophy you received at Rivi but then again it was much better than the ones 95% of the shooters didn't receive.

I don't know how much you think clubs make out of putting a National shoot on but most do it for the love of the sport and not to make money. This season with attendances down by nearly 100 it makes it even harder for the clubs.

As for the idea of UKAHFT obtaining the trophies I think it's a good idea as a much better bang per buck would be obtained. Clubs could also be informed at the start of the season what their commitment would be for trophies. I would even be possible for clubs selected to hold a round to perhaps "pay up front" for trophies to alleviate the cost burden a little on UKAHFT.
