English sporting is basically sporting clays. In much of the world "sporting" mean FITASC or sporting clays. "English Sporting" basically help explain that it will be sporting clays not FITASC.

Now to specifics of the UK. Maybe a little more speed but nothing drastically different than what you would see at major shoots in the USA. More report pair than the U.S. And less true pairs. Less hospitality than us shoots

No carts. Guns in slips between stations.
Driven birds, something we don't see in North America.

Less of a carnival atmosphere at big shoots. Hardly different than a weekend shoot.

Anthony and Doug, good explanations, I would also add that most of us Brits are miserable buggers :lol: :lol: :lol:
Very true, we don't do much hospitality as the weather is usually awful and we are unable to do barbecues and outside catering, also the grounds are usually very compact and easy walking around.
We certainly need to learn how to promote events like you guys do.
