    At a shoot this weekend the cost of Comps was discussed, So how much do you think it is fair to pay to shoot in a monthly club competition as a non member?

    At Maldon we charge £3 for member and £5 for no members with a pound into the bonus bunny.

    Also feel free to list how much you club charges non members?

    The NW Gauntlet shoots this year were £5.

    Juniors have free entry with a £10 prize for top junior. 50P goes into a Golden Bunny draw.
    Shooters also get a Bacon/Sausage Barm.

    Taking into account the rising costs for insurance etc, that clubs have to find, I think HFT comp costs are very reasonable. I agree there should be reductions for Juniors though.

    On average you pay 5 to 7 pounds and i think that this is reasonable,the clubs have to pay insurance and the hire of the ground, targets, toilets,generators,grass cutting equipment and so on.and yes juniors should have a reduction.

    Guess it really depends on what the club gives out as awards/medals/cups.

    For non members,

    If the prize cost .50P then £4/5 is Ok.
    If the prize cost £5 each then £8/9 plus is OK.
    If no prize then £3/4 IS OK.

    Just my thoughts, and NO i'm not a tight GIT.

    Great value...IMHO

    I am shooting at M.A.D as a "non member" at present.

    I am happy to pay £5 to shoot a competition as it has to be set up, run, there are usually food & hot drinks available, and at some time the targets and equipment all require replacing / servicing.
    They are painted before comps, and the grass cut.
    Prizes are funded and medals & trophies awarded.

    Usually after a comp I can continue shooting for the day.
    I am covered by insurance.

    For what I get for my £5 I think its great value.

    Even better in the new year when I intend joining the club and will only have to pay £3 :).

    Just my opinion..
