    In these parts we have member run and supported clubs with most all functions provided by the members, meaning, we take our turn on the scorer's chair, even at other clubs. Mostly, we're talking 20 squads + - of either two traps (50 targets) or 100 targets in combination of singles & caps, or just singles. Here's my question:

    1: Do you think there's any benefit to pulling a squad(s) before you shoot?

    2. Do you like to shoot before taking your turn on the scorer's chair?

    3. Makes no difference.

    Best.... mike

    Practice days... #3

    ATA/Leagues... I'll score only after I'm done shooting for the day...

    For me, if I am just scoring I do not think it matters. If I am pulling, pushing the button, I get wound up trying to be on time so I shoot first.

    Do it as necessary and don't worry.

    Thanks for the replies, and in a way, I answered my own question today at the York Co. league shoot, hosted by our club, North Carroll. ( a 100 singles league) We started at 9 and after scoring all day, we shot the next to last squad. We had a 93, 94, 95, & a 96. Scoring first, didn't seem to make any difference to anyone on the squad, and actually, the most important factor was light and changing weather conditions. We started the day with raw, cold conditions with a stiff breeze, and by the time we shot at 2, it had warmed up some, and the wind let up. I'd say, that watching the weather and squadding during the best shooting hours is the most important factor, and seat time in the scorer's chair, before or after shooting, made little difference, one way or the other.

    thanks again.... mike
