As for etiquette, it’s reserved, but not dead quiet like at golf. There’s not a lot of reaction other than in the individual finals, as the competitors get knocked out.
The athletes are so zeroed in that they block out everything around them, but there’s no screaming I’ve ever heard, and I’ve been to several conf championships and national title events. But you can talk, watch the action as shots are displayed on screen. You can also go in and out on the same ticket each day, as both Friday and Saturday are lengthy with eight teams of five competitors each plus eight individual qualifiers in both air rifle and smallbore, followed by the knockout rounds for the individual titles.
I do urge everyone who can go to come check it out, and please let me know if you are so I can come say hello.
I’ll also be at the GARC championships in Akron this Fri Sat.
