It's a good idea as long as you advertise that you have a rangefinder class. I think that's why it doesn't catch on.

As far as sharing info, I'm sure it can happen. Just ask the group up front not to do it. The easiest way is to have the RF guys shoot last in your group. That way the others have already shot.

You NY clubs have a lot of trouble getting participation. I think this could only help, again, as long as you advertise it.

I do think it's a good idea, and there really isn't anyway to police cheating...if someone wants to cheat they will

as far as drawing more shooters all we can do is try it and see...

I think its a good idea. Just needs to be advertised as a beginner class. I was worried about losing arrows at my first outdoor event this year but soon lost the fear after finishing the day without a singal missed target. I know alot of guys at work that have always wanted to try 3d shooting but but don't have a lot money to spend on arrows. I think the RF class would get more of the budget concious shooters to come out and have some fun.
just my 2 cents.

I didn't vote because around these parts nobody has added an RF class, but I still think it would be a good idea. It was brought up that it would help eliminate the intimidation factor for new shooters and help them lose less arrows. This supposedly to keep them from losing and having to buy new arrows all the time. Well, range finders aren't cheap either and not everybody has them so this is where I would favor a printout of the yardages as ranged during the course setup. Make it optional and if at all possible lump those shooters together that desire to shoot that class which would help keep down the cheating. This might not be the only option, but getting people out to shoot is what it's all about so it's worthy of trying.

I have NO problems with LRF's for 3D as long as 3D shooters using LRF's take a box of kotex, cut 1 side of the tampon box and affix it to themselves with tape like the number on a marathon runner.
