    Scorer

    I'm looking for plans and pictures of scorer's stand for a trap field. Our long-suffering lady that does all of our scoring deserves something better than a metal folding chair and rickety little table. ANY information that you could post would be very appreciated. Thanks...

    This one is made of welded angle iron but could be made of whatever. Save the image to your PC and enlarge it as needed:

    We just took delivery on 3 of the Advance Chairs as above. They are a really nice product. They come with the two sides pre-assembled so all you have to do is screw in the pre-drilled cross pieces. This is about a 15 minute process. They come with square drive screws so have the right bit on hand.

    We bought $17.00 beach umbrellas at WalMart that have a two piece pole. We mounted the lower piece on the chair with a couple of 1 inch conduit brackets so that the top piece with the umbrella can be mounted when needed and removed for storage.

    These chairs aren't cheap, but they are made out of high density plastic wood that will last for ever.

    We also have gun racks from this same company. Again, top quality stuff.

    JBrooks,

    "high density plastic wood"

    Damn, what kind of tree does that come from?

    Just kiddin...

    We have several at our club that look just like the advance units, and they are durable and comfortable.

    They look like they're made of recycled plastic.

    We use scorers chairs similar to the ones described above. They are good but can be difficult for some to climb up and get into them. They do provide the scorer with a good view of the targets. But, a padded folding metal chair with a lap board will work well and might actually be more comfortable. At least the scorer can easily stand up and walk around a bit between rounds.

    I suggest using a padded folding chair, a large umbrella for shade and a large cooler filled with drinks beside the chair for both the scorer and the shooters. And, most importantly, I suggest that after you finish shooting your 100 birds, you score one squad to give the lady a little rest. She would appreciate that more than a large scorers chair that is hard to move when scoring handicap squads.
