We have a subjunior All American at our club. His SCTP team includes a a couple inexperienced shooters, and all the other teams are similarly balanced, so that the competition is fun and exciting for everybody. The original poster used the word sandbagger as a generic term, which it's not. Neither is it cheating. What it is, is poor sportsmanship. It defeats the whole purpose of the AIM and SCTP programs, and it was permitted by adults who should have known better.
