I can see getting rid of "jr gold" but not Lady 1. I already have stiff competition in LadyII which is where I'm at as wheelchair shooters are ignored except during the final 3 events at a Satellite Grand.NO///// Jr. Gold , Lady I, should also be eliminated. Roger C.
I respectfully disagree. I am not a dog in this fight BUT... I know guys that do keep shooting as stated above because they have short yardage. If not for that they may just give it up. And to debate your comment that "if someone is not competitive at the 20 moving up is not going to help" Than moving back 2 yards will make no differenct to??? In your theory handicap yardage is not relevant. It may not be to you personally but some older shooters it is.If someone on 18 or 19 yards quits because he's moved to the 20, he really doesn't want to shoot trap very badly, does he?
If skill level, age, or health problems (or inexperience) makes someone non-competitive on the 20, taking a step or two forward isn't going to change that. For cryin' out loud, how much harder are 20 yards birds than 19 yard birds?
