    Default Rangefinder Class....YES OR NO....

    So we are in the process of making some changes at our club......

    and one of my thoughts is ADDING a R.F. class.......

    so for you guys who have allready added it, did it do anything for Attendance??good or bad??

    Do you think it will bring the back yard archers out???
    I cut things up and split them down!

    say judge it first then range it.

    OR how 'bout a GPS class? I think range finders are fairly easy to use (oops, I think I voted wrong, let's blame it on the wine)

    I don't think many people will go for it.... but if they do it would be an interesting class. What about having a how to and the techniques of judging yardage class?

    Why not save the trouble and have a mark yardage class. They sign up up give them a cheat sheet. Easyer to hide a marked card then a RF that has big red numbers for all to see. lol
    There goes the money class.

    Algonquin archers is the only club that I know of that has a R.F'er class. Not many people shoot it at all. We had 180 shooters, and 3 signed up for rf'er class. 2 of them, including myself, signed up becasue we set up the course. I think it is a great idea for the non diehard 3D shooter, but it seems very under utilized.

    My thoughts would be to try it for one shoot, and see how it goes.
