Are you supposed to?

At the tournaments I have been to - both as a shooter and a ref, that was included in the price of the targets

I don't think the correct question is, "Are you supposed to?" but rather "do you want to?"

Sure! Just give each trapper a $20 tip just before you enter the stand to shoot and you'll shoot your highest score ever. :wink: :wink:

I was talking about registered tournaments, but I forgot about the charity/corporate tournaments. For those, most have a tip jar to be split among the trappers; and if they do, then I put some in.

True, some shooters are classless and might try to buy a high score. One particular class of shooter comes to mind.

If there is a general tip jar, to be shared equally among the trappers, I contribute to that.

If not...I usually approach the shoot manager with a general donation to the trappers.

Come on now....

My experience has been that rudeness, classlessness, and in general bad behavior is sprinkled very lightly but equally on a percentage basis across all competition classes and recreational participants. Just human dynamics. A certain percentage of people just are not very enjoyable to be around.

Most folks I have shot with have been great. I would have very few I would prefer never to shoot with again.

Quote:
NSSA Rule VII-C-10 Tipping: Tipping of individual referees is not permitted.
And I agree 100%.

NSCA has no such rule. Tipping as a general rule, IMHO, is WAY over used in this country. People are taught from an early age that we should always tip other people's service to us. I say bovine excrement to that philosophy/practice. Tipping should in ALL instances be for service above and beyond what would normally be considered 'doing ones job.' A referees 'job' is to release the target on your call and score the result of your shot. How would he/she go above and beyond doing that to such a degree that a tip would be warranted? In my opinion, they can't and would not be deserving of more compensation beyond the wage they agreed to, to perform their assigned duties. So for me, no tip will be forthcoming. When it comes to your money, its not for me to tell you what to do with it. As a general rule, I very seldom see any service that deserves additional compensation in the form of a tip.

By all means Bob, save that tip money! Maybe one day you will spring for a new set of those nasty old sweat pants you’ve been shooting in since 1968:-)

Didn’t realize some of you don’t realize the OP’s question doesn’t specify sporting or skeet.
