What is your clubs policy regarding allowance for show birds, breakage and no-throws?

Thanks in advance,
Slim

If you mean at a tournament, show pairs are allowed. If you mean during the week just out for some fun, most clubs do not allow show birds, but will add back on targets due to breakage or bad battery, etc. Too many folks abused the "show birds". One gent at one club always shot the show birds and only shot two pair total at every station - meaning while he shot 100 targets, he was demanding that half of them be credited back. He personally killed show birds at that club and hasn't been back since.

That is the way it should be, IMHO.

But should be added into the cost of the tournament.

In my area, no show birds on 50. When shooting 100, get two show birds per station. So a 14 station course, 128 targets allowed max.

Pay the pickle. They usual will credit you back for no birds, but not show pairs.

With a 5 man squad and 15 stations "you" only miss show birds on 3 stations. Pay attention on the other 12 and pay for your targets thrown.

Club 1: No counters. Shooters honor.
Club 2: You pay for every target thrown (except no birds), uses Promatic Claymate system
Club 3: One show pair per station, then you pay for every target after that (except no birds), uses Promatic Claymate system

Pay for them all on a counter. I prefer this method. I load up 2,000 birds at a time on my longrange card and top off as needed. I don't care too much about paying for show birds and no birds. I view paying for them as a donation to the club. I'd rather the club be fiscally sound than worry about a few bucks here and there.

Pretty simple. Practice, pay for every unbroken target that come off the traps. Tournament, follow the NSCA rules, which do not limit show birds to one pair. If you shoot extra, pay for them. In this day and age, clubs that do not have target counters on their sporting clays courses are giving away targets.

Price your show birds and build it in to the basic price so everyone can have 2 show birds

Makes everyone happy and shooters do not know they pay for them

From the rule book for registered shoots.
F 3. Shooters Viewing Targets The first person on every squad shall be allowed to view a good presentation of targets from within the shooting station. This is not limited to one pair. This person is the only person permitted to mount their unloaded gun and track the targets being viewed.

E card for every bird. I practice for hunting so I don’t throw show birds. Shoot what comes out. You can’t get a “show bird” while hunting and then plan your look point, hold point, and shot on the bird you just missed. Get in the box, buddy pushes button, and shoot.

Most days - $6/25

Some Sundays - $7/25

And we get show birds. Lead-off shooter usually gets a single or following pair from each trap, then a simo pair. We don't pay extra for show birds.

Yes I am aware that I am very fortunate. Actually, I am doubly fortunate because I have two clubs within 12 low traffic miles like this. :D

We rarely have shooters that shoot the show bird. They are usually visitors or newbies. If I am on the squad they are politely informed that show birds are for the benefit of the squad so they can see the flight of the targets. That is usually sufficient.

What is your club's policy? Do they make an allowance for a free show pair per station? Make you pay for everything?

If the squad doesn't get show birds, the lead-off shooter is at a huge disadvantage.

If it is just for grins and giggles, then it doesn't matter.

One other club where I shoot gives you 10% more to cover show birds and breakage. Buy 1000, get 1100; the others follow the previous format by giving you broken birds back but no show birds.
Terry, around here targets can run from .35 to .50 (plus sales tax) depending on whether you're a member or not
