    Why not. I'd go 2 classes; one from the yellow stakes and one from the blue stakes. Could be instructive.

    Whatís kind of interesting is that the Redding Shoot in Redding CA. Draws in one of the largest crowds for a national event and itís all marked yardage 3D..

    Just a thought

    if the yardage is marked why would you need one?

    I am not that big of an idiot, you donít need both just a RF class or Marked just stating that they have pulled in a big crowd, and you are right you would not need a RF if itís marked, but was referring to the attendance of the two which you could compare. A RF class would be necessary versus marked yardage in order to run an event without having to have a whole separate course set up thus more cost effective if you want to run both venues.

    I shot nothing but marked yardages (that's all they had in CA) and I liked it. It makes it a challenge of who shoots better instead of who judges yardage better.

    no, I meant a GPS class for hunting. How many people actually know how to use one properly?

    I wasn't trying to hi jack, just throwing out class ideas.

    I'm with Smokes first response. I think it could remove some of the intimidation a lot of new people to the sport experience. Although range finders are not cheap. Maybe hand out printed yardage info on the shoot to the folks that resgister in that class. That would be easy to put together if somebody had a finder while they were setting targets and stakes up.

    My thoughts would be to try it for one shoot, and see how it goes.
    TiYogi has a RF class...they don't get too many in it either but they think it's an option worth offering.

    There goes the money class.
    That sounds like something to think about.

    If it is a R/F class how do you keep the other classes from sharing the info?
    We have a Saturday regular 3/d and Sunday marked Yards or your own range finder. It hasn't really caught on yet but maybe a couple of more years people will open up. I think it will be another class that doesnt get enough shooters to pay for awards.
    No if's and or but's Just Maybee.

    wow! I can be so dumb sometimes...I couldn't figure out why you were going to have a RF "class" (a place to learn)

    I see what you mean now

    I think you should just have the whole shoot be Ranged if you are going to do it at all. Allowing Rangefinders to only one class? Others not in the class will definately over hear ranges and this will make it unfair.

    I was wondering how long it was going to take......I figured if you kept talking and looking dumber, eventually you would get it

    now lets see how long it takes firechic to get it
