How do clubs *usually* measure the maximum left and right angles of their targets to be certain they are within the 34 - 45 degree arc prescribed by the ATA rules? Do they use a protractor?

Our club had a member who is a land surveyor, set on top of the trap house and turn the angles. However, if the center stake is in, it is an easy manner to figure the chord distance, assuming someone understands trig, and where it intersects with 50 yards, set the stake.

Setter, wouldn't that "4-1/2" post setting actually be less than a two hole target angle is supposed to be? I'd think those may be closer to 32 degree angles than 34? Anyone know for sure?
