Sounds great Steve. How would that work for an unclassified shooter? (I'm not going to run off and rush into a FSP grade before then). Is there a BO fee? And if not then how might I be eligible for the prizes. Sorry to sound awkward but seems a great event.. Even for an ESP shooter!

Steve, you had better put him in A class, he's sooooo vain he'd be embarrassed not to be A class, (chip on both shoulders syndrome) "birds only"... Come on, biggest prize money FITASC shoot in the uk and you want to go 'birds only' ?!?!

There are quite a few non FSP classified ESP shooters, so i thought it was a valid question on behalf of a section of shooters.

James, your history of unwarranted abusive outbursts on this site has become pretty rich. You accused me of talking 'pish' the other day and despite a careful polite explanation to demonstrate that I was not, no apology came from you. I'll ignore that and just write you off as ignorant. But please keep more blatant insulting comments to yourself.

There are also plenty of classified FITASC shots who shoot all the FITASC shoots with little to no prize money for the love of shooting FITASC, now when a successful buisness man who shoots FITASC for the love of it decides to give something back to the sport by very generously sponsoring a new and exciting 150 bird FITASC shoot, with serious money, (well done Dave Kempley!!!) all of a sudden, you, who was slagging off how long it takes to shoot 100 FITASC only the other day, now want in on the £££ with an unclassified class?!?!

You didn't recive an apology the other day because, even after your explanation, your 1st statment was still 'talking pish'..."...it tool me 8 hours to shoot 100 FITASC" "your talking pish" "oh no, if I stretch it out it was almost 7 hours..."

Like I said, you were talking pish, it didn't take you 8 hour to shoot 100 birds!!!

Matt, delete whatever you want, remember, what you delete says as much about you as it does about me...@oversensitivethoughtpolice.com

Clever stated that it took him 8 hours to shoot 100 FITASC, I called him out, he then admitted it didn't take him 8 hours, would you rather I called him a lier, bullsh*ter or talking pish?

Anyway, back to topic, who's going to shoot the Troy Foods FITASC Classic, I know I want to!!!

James, I was on that squad with Will and it did take us over 7 hours to shoot, he was probably also taking into account arriving early to get to the layout and the time queuing on the A40. Plus the fact that most men round up than round down!

For those that didn't read the other thread, I showed that it took me 7 hours 15m from start to finish, plus I had to get to the ground and park! Sorry for rounding it up, (SO massively.., thus making myself a liar and a bullsh*tter..) but I explained the minimum amount of time I had to be in attendance to get the day done. There were then some others (including from the ground) contributing positively on the thread to see what could be done at that particular ground to speed their day up. It was not slating of FSP in general at all, just looking at how that ground could improve their schedule. Guess what, we all managed to not insult each other during the continued thread.

And where the heck do you get "he wants in on the ££ with an unclassified class". Firstly that sentence doesn't make sense and secondly I was asking the reverse, namely -as I don't have a class, would it be easier to simply opt out of the prize element? As i say, I asked it because i felt it was a generic question that many might pose. Steve answered constructively and it's all good.

James I think you assume my posts were as attacking in nature as your own. They were not. Issue solved.

I found the April Fool thread!  

 

No-one can be that angry, surely? 

 

I'm removing the unnecessary posts that detract from a good event.

Well I hope to be in A class by the time this event takes, on account all the top A class shots will be in the final  :biggrin:

 

An amazing event, not sure I have ever seen class prize money this high in this Country in the last 20 years. It surely must be the unmissable event of the year? Good job Steve, Ally, David & Wes...

Why does this event have a £120 price tag when all the prizes are sponsored? GB selection shoots of 150 targets are put on for around £50-£60 the rest of the entry going to BICTSF. Only difference is the refs are paid by BICTSF. Maybe some of the sponsors get refunded if the entry is filled? It appears that the real winner here by about an extra 20K is the ground owner!

Get your facts straight, GB selection shoots cost £105 to enter, there is no free food/drink included, there is no massive prize fund to shoot for, if you don't like the £120 entry fee you don't have to enter, but sitting here looking at the squad list...plenty do fancy a crack at this!!!

You think Steve Lovatt is making 20k profit from running this? Good luck to him if he is...but I doubt it!!!

Ed, have you ever shot a FITASC shoot with a prize fund like the classic before??? (Excluding Dubai)

And even if Steve WAS making 20k - it would be none of our business.... shooting is not a mutual business where we all take a dividend, or a charity - people are allowed to make a profit. 

 

The prizefund, and targets will attract people (and the squad lists are full) - if you don't fancy it, or don't fancy Steve making a few quid for his holiday fund, then don't go.

James you are correct the GB selections do cost £105, but as I said only £50 to £60 goes to the ground which covers ALL costs except the refs. You are also correct about free food and drink, it will be interesting to hear about that after the event. The massive prize fund has been very generously given by companies/people it is not coming from the entry fee.

Ed as for the maths if other grounds are putting 150 FITASC on for the cost I have mentioned earlier (and they are) that leaves al least £60 per entry as an extra over and above what other grounds would charge which includes any margin they make. Therefore 12 squads per day 7 man ( not 6 extra greed ) squads = 84 shooters x 4 days = 336 shooters x £60 = £20160 remember this is in addition to the normal profits made. Yes the refs and free snacks will be out of this. While we are on the subject I may have my maths out a little as I have heard that Promatic are giving the clays, so more money for the ground owner!

It seems to me that maybe Sponsorship could be better delivered to the shooters. This way is just a get rich quick way for the ground owners.
