    A large part of the problem in trying to come up with "Trap League Software" is that there are probably as many variations in how a league keeps it records as there are trap leagues. There may be even more variations since some leagues change what they want the records to show.

    How are teams set up? Five person teams? All shooters from one club on the same team (in a multi-club league), are handicaps (not the yardages but scores)involved, how many shoots, what classes or categories are used, how are shooters who miss a shoot accounted for, how many targets in a match, are handicap yardages involved and probably two or three dozen more variations all enter into the needs of the software. All those variations make each league's software needs different and probably unique to itself in some way or another.

    I have written Excel sheets for two different leagues and put most of a third league's desires into Excel packages. The third one mentioned was then scrapped after three weeks or so of development when the person wanting it failed to return answers to some questions and when pressed, then finally told me they went a different way.

    So why is there no software available? Put down the particulars of YOUR league and then people who have written something for THEIR league may find that the needs of YOUR league can be accommodated by slight modifications of THEIR league's software. All of this is predicated on using software that is either open source, public domain or copyright released. If there is a copyright involved, that is another entirely different issue.

    Now what are YOU looking for from the software YOU want?

    PerazziTopSingle@hotmail.net ,

    I tried sending you an E-Mail but two tries both resulted in a bounce so I will put the message here..

    If you are interested, I can send you a copy of the two spreadsheets I have for the two leagues I run. Both are set up for multiple teams.

    One has Five clubs with one shoot a month, ten months of the year. This is a fifty bird match. In this league all the teams go to one club for the shoot. This league has five clubs and the scores are the top five individual scores from each club making the score for the team. If there are not five shooters from that club, a zero is recorded for however many shooters are needed to make five. Points are awarded with Five points for the Highest team, four for the next etc. Ties both get equal points. Shooters are based on four classes, A, B, C, D and Juniors, Veterans and Ladies categories. Trophies are awarded to the High Gun in the League and the High Average in each of the listed classes and categories if there are at least five qualified shooters in the class or category. You can check out what the results look like at:

    http://users.edinboro.edu/pyrdek/lvschedule.htm

    There are links from the home page to see match records and team records for the year. Just click on the "Results" ;ink. League Rules are also available from the website.

    The second league has eight teams and shoots one night a week from May till August except for the three big ATA shoots (PA State, Eastern Zone and Grand). It is also a fifty bird match with the top five scores from each team making up the team score. This is a much more complex spreadsheet that uses several Macros to speed the calculations. It is a home and away league with seven matches in each half season. Standings are based on a number of matches won basis. There is also a Pre-Season and a Post Season shoot but those scores do not enter into the League averages. This league has AA, A, B, C, D, Sr. Vet., Vet, Junior, Sub-Jr, Rookie and Ladies classes/categories. To see what this looks like you can visit the league web site at:

    http://users.edinboro.edu.pyrdel/league.htm

    Click on the dates on the quick report on the web page to see the weekly results and on the team name to see the team's record.

    The League rules are available on-line.

    If you take a look and see something that may interest you let me know and I can send you a copy of the current spreadsheet for the league(s) you may be interested in.
