I was talking to my daughter the other day about college and how it was going, she was doing OK but it scared me that she didn't show any passion about what she was studying. Then in the next sentence her face lit up when she started talking about teaching kids to swim at her job. I realized right then that I had to talk to her and to follow what she is passionate about.
I think the same goes for whatever shooting sport you are involved in. If you are passionate about it then find ways to spread your passion and get other people involved. At some point I would hope that your passion expands to starting a club or bringing new people to the sport or traveling to new matches to share your passion for your sport. Most times it's a thankless task, but a very rewarding one.
I started my club in 2016 because of my passion for the sport. I spent the prior year (2015) talking to people and trying to figure out where I could hold my matches, and even trying to figure out who would attend such a thing. It was frustrating, and still is, but eventually I came to the right location and they agreed to allow the matches to take place on their property. It's definitely been a labor of love. I had a lot of support from several field target friends and even Crosman who is close by. I started paying close attention to all of the matches I was going to, seeing what they did and how they did it, looking at the equipment they used (targets, strings, reels, attachment points, etc) and how they set up their courses. I still look at ways to improve my process and spend my own money to do so. There have been times where I think of calling it quits but I get off the ledge and move on with the support of several close friends in this sport.
