    Hey you would draw a bigger crowd if you would let everyone have 1 yard less. They can only beat you a couple of times. You give club yardage. The long yardage shooters already get to shoot the 16 yd targets. I know of several shooters that would come and shoot if you gave everyone 1 yd less. See you soon.

    Jerry,,,I didn't understand your comment. If you read the program above you have to know that everyone gets a yard off except 20 yarders,,because that is as close as you can get...

    What did you mean by; the long yardage shooters already get to shoot the 16 yard targets..?? Hmmmmm, hope your not wanting us long yardage guys to shoot all our targets from the 26 and you shoot all of yours from the 16...

    Personally, I prefer the old calcuttas where your handicap is based on what you break from the 16 yard targets.

    Example: 50 Bird race...you break 25 16's you shoot from 25 yards etc.
    you break 24 16's you shoot from 24 etc. no closer than
    23 yards.

    Hey Grizz,
    No I do not want to shoot all of my targets from the 16. I will shoot 50 singles and 50 i yd less just like you. I am simply saying that someone such as yourself that has a 99 avg on singles is for the most part spotting you 50. I am not taking anything away from your ability. I wished that I could break singles and handicap like you do. There are shooters that would come and shoot if they got 1 yard off their cap yardage. I personally am not affected, but I say give the 1 yard off to all shooters. How many times can they beat you. You get club yardage. More shooters means more money and the club throws more targets.

    So you're saying that 20 yard shooters should be allowed to shoot from the 19? Because they are the only ones I can see who are not getting to shoot from 1 yeard less than their card. Do you, or they, think that 1 yard is going to make the difference between them beating Griz, Phillip, or Dave Riddle? It will take them, or me for that matter, having a very good day to beat those guys in which case that 1 yard won't make a bit of difference.

    JHoward,
    I am saying if you give 1 yard off for 21 yds and up, give the 1 yard off to everyone even if he is on the 18. You are exactly right. Grizz, Phillip, Terry Litteral, Dave Riddle and many more at Phillips club is very difficult to beat no matter where you shoot from. If it gets you more shooters, let em have the 1 yard off no matter what their yardage is. I am on the 24 and have tohoot against them too. My oppinion and $1.00 will buy you a cup of coffee.

    Alright all you criers and whiners..... we will make the winter calcutta 1 yard less than your ATA card. Come prepared to prove your assigned yardage. Hope this makes you feel better, because most times, the long yardage shooters have prevailed. Know that when you win, you earn a club yard which will remain until January 01, 2010 and April 01, 2010.

    Phillip,

    I am neither a whiner or crier. I am tired of shooters saying they won't shoot a shoot because they don't get a yard off. Now they have no excuse not to come and shoot your shoot. I hope to shoot several of your shoots this winter. If I can win your shoot just 1 time, I will be extremly happy. It will mean that I had an outstanding day and beat some of the best shots in the country (or no one else showed up that day). I truly do not think giving the one yard off to all ATA cards gives a better chance to beat the great shots at your club. If you can not break 49 or 50 you are not going to win your shoot. Thanks and hope to see you soon.

    Jerry

    The fairest way , is 100 bird handicap what you sell for. That way you can put your money where your mouth is!!
