Why don't you talk your local club into throwing such a shoot, then report back the results. As individual members of the ATA, it is up to US to find ways to fix this "problem" and not wait for the EC to do it.
Whatever program is a popular crowd pleaser and draws more people, will catch on from club to club and then be adopted at the large shoots.
The erosion of our sport did not happen over night, but over time. We must regrow it the same way.
Mr. Kiner's recent survey showed the majority of people think it is economics for the decline, and not the "big dogs" or the need to make more people winners.
Something I have wondered about, is perhaps the entry money for the purses is too cheap. Perhaps we should increase an entry fee from 10 dollars to 50 dollars. Perhaps we can have different levels of entry purses for all events and then limit the shooters to one entry per event.
In other words, you set up a 10.00 entry fee, a 25 dollar and 50 dollar entry fee for an event. You can enter one entry fee level, but not all. So the people who enter the 10.00 purse will shoot against others in the 10.00 entry purse and divide up the money based on winners of class or handicap.
A "big dog" ( I hate that term), will most likely enter a 50 dollar event and the class B,C, D shooters will not, unless they want to. This way, the lessor class or yardage shooters will compete against other similar shooters, without the fear the big dogs will clean up on everything. Again, the choice of the level purse entered, will be up to the shooter.
Look at all the options and purses for each event at each shoot. Cut it down to 2, 3 maybe 4 at most, but set up different purses and entry money for each. Run a cash trophy, Lewis and one other, or just the first two for singles and doubles. For handicap, trophy, Lewis and special.event. Eliminate all the junior, lady and vet classes. If people want recognition for these classes, issue a letter of participation of the event listing the date and score, and place in the event.
Perhaps, too complicated, but I am going to suggest it at my club, maybe some of you big thinker types can figure out some better along the same lines.
