    Barry I wish it would but I doubt it. I think I have had my hayday creeped up to 23 1/2 yards from the fence. Just to dam old. Things don't work like they use too. :)

    Turned it down permanently to the 27, I can't find any fun in shooting long sixteen's.

    I took the reduction now with the women and other old farts!

    I still carry the instructions you gave me years ago in my billfold - good old days with my Yankee squad!!!

    Turned it down. Did not meet the criteria they supposedly used to determine who got it plus had a punch less than a month ago.

    Me, three yards in 5 months. Three more and I'll be at the 21. Ok, maybe I'll shoot around one event this year. That way, when they offer another 2 yd. reduction I'll be at the 22!!

    Haven't got the card in the mail yet but when I do I plan to send it back. Took me ten years to get to the 23.5 and I ain't movin' back up if I don't have to, I like it here.

    Took 2 yards! Why not, If I can't consistently shoot 90% average, its time to get competitive. Build some confidence, win some events, money, and be a better shooter when I get back to the 27yd line real soon! Seems to be a pride thing for most. If I can't compete at 27yds today, I don't deserve to be there!

    I think I'm going to take my 3 yards...

    Had fun traveling to 27, kinda like to see those scores again.

    won't have to shoot those silver bullets again for awhile.

    might try those 1 oz'ers all the short yardage guys tell me are all ya' need...

    Took mine. Now if I can just remember to move the mike stand and shoot from the right yardage. I think it has the potential to help more than hurt.

    I turned it down and requested a new card. My goal is to be the best - not to find any way to just "win". To take the reduction to me is the equivelent of playing basketball in high school and then being offered to play against the junior high. Yes, I won, but who cares.

    I had to look at my last years avg. on the 27 and realize that what I lack is young eyes and talent. I think it will be fun to shoot from the 25. John 8703697

    I'm on the 21 1/2 yard line. That would put me on the girly line. Sorry but one big NO to the reduction.
