I think it's a good idea Gary, having another possibly less accomplished competitor talk about the event from their perspective rather than you overview may be nice for a change. Largely you have hit the nail on the head. there are only so many ways you can repeat the same message, maybe somebody from the hosting club talking about any course setting challenges, how they felt the day went, would they do anything differently given the chance in the future and so on. Who knows what could happen ultimately but until you try it we'll never know, be it good, bad or indifferent.

How about doing a short write up on the competition year of an up and coming young shooter that the shooting fraternity can follow throughout the year.

Take 1 novice.. (young or old, male or female !)
Give them some sponsors kit to use,
Give them some coaching,
Follow their progress through the year in the Mag.

Hey presto, 9 months of interest for young and old shooters alike and someone people can relate to, and all sponsors get to advertise their kit with them with a little write up on that piece of kit for that round and how the new shooter rates it.

I think anything that gives us new comers and unknowns a chance of 5 mins of fame is a great idea. Not that im at all bias being my PB is a 46 and having no chance of seeing my name in lights any time soon.

I think thats an inspired idea Gary, i imagine it will go down very well with the sponsors and maintain their enthusiasm for supporting the series aswell as you say bring a new angle to the coverage of the event.
