Giving??? That's exactly what it is when you have a drawing for prizes rather than earning one by winning. I'm happy with prize distribution by place of finish only for each Division with trophies for class wins and my days of winning are long gone so I'm one that would benefit from the lottery. I can tell you it sucks to beat all but two in the overall and watch the top D who shot 45 percent of your score "win" gun while you get a trinket.

 

what really matters is do the sponsors benefit more from a random draw, or more from giving stuff to GM's who will just sell it and not ever use it. As someone who has sponsored sporting events with merchandise in the past, I can tell you the random draw is MUCH more effective marketing, to the point that we would only donate merchandise under the condition that it was given away in a random drawing.

 

As a competitor, I don't really care. I find that caring about prizes significantly diminishes my enjoyment of sports.

I've done the same, donated cash and prizes, I knew how it works and knew whatever I gave other than cash would probably be sold and not used by the winner. I think this is true in any sport that has prizes, so you donate to help a cause you believe in and as a business you hope to generate good will. My post was from the viewpoint as a competitor and as I actually have benefited and enjoyed prizes and cash I've won in the past but my time period was probably way earlier in the game and things have changed a lot. Different strokes and all that.

Random draw for specific prizes sucks because sponsors can be pretty sure whoever wins their thing probably doesn't actually want it.  Mystery-bags suck even more because then the sponsor doesn't even have people saying 'I want to win that'.

 

At least with order of finish, you know the people that end up with what you gave are going to somebody that wants it, whether they pick it off a table or off the Enos classifieds the next week.

Cool prizes for placing well in HOA or division motivate people to shoot gooder.  Dangle a carrot and make the mule run.

I think my favorite is the random draw for order of walking an actual prize table... it gives me an idea of who is picking up the gear i want to try and buy for cheap.

so you're saying some people enter competitions but don't care as much about performing well unless there's a trinket? wtf? Takes all kinds I guess. Some people dig fat chicks, some vote democrat, whatever.

I would compete in many more majors if there was actually a tangible incentive to show up despite the costs, aside from good feels. Randomly awarded prizes are by definition not prizes, they're raffles. They do bring in derps that can barely shoot a stage without killing themselves though, so that's a bonus.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Why the fuck do I compete in this sport again? We're about as professional as an organized game of airsoft.

I work for a company that was involved with the Snipers Hide Cup a couple years back. As a whole, I've never met a more entitled group of shooters in my life. I will not be shooting PRS anytime soon.
