Books, At one large shoot I attended a vendor donated a set of holsters, belt and shotgun belt to the shooter that came in closest to his age. He said he was so old that one of the new shooters had to win the rig. He felt that would encourage new shooters that place low in the pack. At another a vendor donated a set of holsters to the shooter that finish the shoot and shot all the stages and came in last. I thought the gift to the last place was pretty special even though I did not win. He said he did that because most shoots recoginized the really good shooters and ignored the new shooters. Both of these along with third place are all good and "something different".Celeste
I used to shoot muzzle loaders a lot, they gave a pound of black powder to the last place shooter, to encourage him to practice. I rarely had to buy powder.
