    Per the rules............

    "Point B is defined as the intersection of a line measured 1 foot 6 inches or 2 feet 6 inches from the outside vertical wall (farthest from the shooting stations) of the trap house and the centerline of the trap house. Please review Diagram I on page 55."


    So Point B can be either 1 foot 6 OR 2 foot 6???? thats a big swing IMO. Which is it? and what would make you say one or the other? OR is this more relevant to the throwing arm that is IN your house? I would assume point B would be more accurate as measured from where a target comes off the arm??

    Not sure where you are getting that verbiage. From the rulebook on shootata.com

    Section XIII, E (Flights and Angles) -

    Point B is defined as the intersection of a line measured 1 foot 6 inches
    from the outside vertical wall (farthest from the shooting stations) of the
    trap house and the centerline of the trap house. Please review Diagram I
    on page 55. If the trap machine manufacturer specifies a dimension other than 1 foot 6 inches, that dimension may be used in construction of the
    trap house.

    Scott,
    This is copied from page 47...


    "Target height may also be set based on the height of the target at ten yards as measured above the level of the trap arm in the house rather than the height as measured from the number 3 shooting station. This is the recommended procedure at facilities where the installation of traps in the houses is inconsistent as to height.
    Point B is defined as the intersection of a line measured 1 foot 6 inches or 2 feet 6 inches from the outside vertical wall (farthest from the shooting stations) of the trap house and the centerline of the trap house. Please review Diagram I on page 55. Clubs constructing new trap house and fields should use the same point B measurement as their existing fields to keep all fields as consistent as possible.
    In Singles shooting the trap shall be so adjusted that within the normal

    Don't know for sure 1.5 and 2.5 feet diference could be the diferences in the size of trap house allowed in the rule book, 7.5 ft. , 9.5ft.
