    I looked at 3 different rules pages and nobody says it's illegal, I would wait for a rules change or draw partners from a hat :)

    Think you are talking about the masters.
    As in ukahft you would be sent of.
    No talk between parent and child.
    Or guardian and child.

    It looks like another rule needs to be added that really is obvious, in any competition there shouldn’t be any coaching maybe only some advice for newcomers, I’m talking UKAHFT National comps here, at club level if it’s just a club comp that would be down the club itself what it would allow.

    But people telling or making signals to their shooting partners in a group, wether it be friends or family would be classed as cheating at an official comp.

    If I could see my partner was about to obviously get a donut..ie barrel nestled nicely amoungst some undergrowth I would tell them....I wouldn't think that was cheating?....also If I wasn't sure that they had a donut or not at a further range for instance, ie I could only hear the guns going of around me and the target didn't look donutable then I would give benefit of the doubt....obviously not for a blatant donut with mud exploding everywhere and ants running for their lives!

    The OP made a very valid point, and IMO this needs to be in the rules.

    Yes if you could see your shooting partner was at a very short distance like at the end of his mussle to hit the tree ,as safety you would warn them

    The line between sportsmanship and gamesmanship is very, very fine....

    As is the line between a good guy and utter Brasted in any comp!

    Bit like if you hear the whistle.
    Don't tell your partner.
    You all have to look after each others safety..
    It's not one up man ship to lose a point.
    It's safety for all

    For what it's worth I personally believe that things have to be taken on a case by case basis. For example even at some "National" type shoots it may well be someone's first ever outing. To shooting partners with anything about them this becomes pretty obvious pretty quickly. People soon settle in once they are given a few pointers. However with Juniors in my opinion if they are absolute novices they do need some additional assistance in certain circumstances. People tend to forget that Juniors will hopefully prop the sport up should they maintain their interest, if very early on in their shooting interest a few generous helpful pointers during a competition helps maintain their interest then really guys so what. In all honesty they soon learn and stand on their own feet pretty sharpish. I think we need to sometimes remember what this sport is in some circumstances. Just my 2 pence.
