A point to raise is that most marshalls on the coarse dont even know the rules and are only there to mend faulty targets. The marshalling at GP level in my oppinion is very `easy going` to say the least. Photos that appear on STB prove that competitors do break rules of the sport and get away with it. Fair and honest marshalls that know the rules is whats needed and wont be affraid to point out errors to people.
Some clubs may get alot of money for putting a Gp on. not all. we will get a £1 a shooter so i presume with drop outs about £130 ish quid.
For the amount of work that goes into a gp its not worth it?However, I am not doing it for the money though it will benifit my club a small amount.
I still say the only people that shopuld be marshalling in regards rules are your shooting partner or partners.
Club marshalls wll have terain knowlage and thus should be more suited to go and check a target in perhaps hazzordous terain (Tondu cliffs an example) and the chielf marshalls descision is final on any rules, broken, bent or otherwise , thats why he/she is there.
