    We're in the planning stages of putting together our annual Club Shoot which
    will be held in mid September. I'm looking for ideas & suggestions and things that you've done to create interest excitement and participation...

    Trophies, plaques, belt buckles etc. What worked best?

    What kind of event competition works best?

    Last year we had the following events:

    50/16yard & 50/22yard

    50 international

    25 pair of doubles

    Total of 200 targets to qualify for "Club Champion"

    I would appreciate your ideas!

    I got an idea for an event from a friend in Australia!

    It's called D.T.L. (Down the Line). Basically a 16 yard round except the
    shooters can take a second shot at a missed bird. Two points are scored for
    a 1st shot break, One point is scored for a 2nd shot break, 0 points are scored for a double miss. Sounds interesting. Anyone ever shot this game?

    What's the ante and what gets paid out?

    How about a 27yd wobble miss & out shot from post 5. You crank up the machine so that it throws screamers and as wide as possible. Everyone puts $5 in the pot, buybacks at $5 each up to 3 buybacks. Last man standing gets the pot. To level the field, the club supplys the ammo.

    To me, nothing would be better than 100 singles, 100 handicap and 50 pair of registered targets. I recognize that not everyone is like me.
