I've stopped taking pictures at the CAGP. While I don't get bugged at ISSF World Cups, this seems to be a big issue at the CAGP.
While I never use a flash, I use my auto-assist light (not a flash). The ISSF officials seem to understand the difference (Munich, Milan, USA, Athens, etc.), it sets the CAGP officials on edge. They speak to me every year, and every year, I explain that it is not against the rules.
That being said, the bother has outweighed my patience. I'm not taking pictures for public consumption at the Grand Prix anymore. The match officials can figure out how they hope to publicise the event, especially in light of lower attendance figures this year.
You can only do so much before you say "I'm done."
As for scores, I received a request to put them up yesterday (Mar. 11), so I'll be posting them tonight.
