Let me hear your feedback!! As stated at the beginning of the match; this is a work in progress and we would like to make it enjoyable to as many as possible ... what was good, what was bad, and any new ideas!!

Mrs.Hammer has suggested we let Relay 1 score Relay 2 -- excellent idea!!

You're assuming only one relay, with each shooter having his/her own stand, which is the preferred plan anyway?

Like the idea of a full-blown target for sighters. Not so sure about switching back & forth, though. Personally I think it would be detrimental to my concentration, plus you're going to change your position to shoot another target. May cause more problems than it solves. Not opposed to it for others, just don't think it will work for me.

I'm still pushing for a black target, better contrast than the blue later in the day when it heats up.
Nope, the one we've got is fine. I just find it works better for me in black ink rather than blue. I don't find it anymore difficult to locate my "holes" than on the blue one. YMMV.

I've been doing some thinking. How about a "Sporter" class and a "Target" class. Sporter class shoots the larger scoring ring target that we didn't use and the Target class shoots the targets we did use. All from 100 yards with whatever sights you want to use. This would even the playing field somewhat. A custom 10/22 would be in the Target class while a standard 10/22 would be in the Sporter class. It would be easy to classify the rifles as to which class they had to shoot in. Also, it could be worked out where junior shooters could shoot at 50 yards unless they wanted to shoot at 100. Just some food for thought.
I, too, think two classes are needed. I don't think it will be "easy" to classify them though. Need some something simple and totally objective...like weight of rifle/scope combo. With the zillion possible modifications you can make to a 10/22, just for example, where would you draw the line? But, what does a 40X weigh? SGF's doesn't LOOK very heavy, and we know it can shoot!
SGF's plan works for me. Let's don't create solutions for non-existent problems.
