 Are you talking just number of shooters? There are other variables to take into consideration. IMHO

What other possible meaningful metrics could there be?

 

Size of the range?

Fatness of the match director?

Quantity of porta potties?

 

Number of shooters is an absolute measurement that is applicable to any shoot.

 

Everything else that you evaluate a shoot by is an opinion.

If there isn't enough or enough close there will definitely be some kind of collateral.

Hello?! Any criteria other than the size of the dessert table is irrelevant!

Desert Scorpion :wub: had a single request when I was running Eldorado - had nothing to do with target size, placement or number of shotgun positions...

 

If there weren't red velvet cupcakes at the banquet - she wasn't coming.

I don't know if she was bluffing but I never dared to find out.

With all due respect - no it cannot.  (and yes, I'm using "with all due respect" with exactly the same meaning as you are)

 

Largest means exactly what everyone knew the op wanted (and what he reiterated after).

I remember when Paul Miller up at Montrose Colo had 18 stages in 2 days.

Some shoots are limited in number by practicality. Other than that if you have a large shoot number wise it usually indicates an MD or club that knows what people want and are willing to go the extra mile to give them that. However, Shirt and I have been to several matches that vary in difficulty that we have been back to and will go again. Main thing for us is the people that put on the match and their attitude toward the shooters.

Same here! 

 

If they realize they're in the entertainment business and run their match accordingly the Burts will be there (if it isn't to far away).  If they're running matches to 'slow down' the fast shooters with stupid progressions or a steady diet of small and far then we'll go somewhere else.   We're fortunate that there aren't to many of the latter in the Southeast anymore.

And how well they are anchored down. I remember many EOT’s at Founders Ranch in New Mexico where the number of porta potties knocked over by the wind far out numbered those left standing.

The champ would be OWSA in Raton NM at the Whittington Center!

32 main stages over 4 days. And dirt cheap! $45.70 to play!

Whittington pretty much killed them when they demanded $50 per shooter.

"Days of Truth," the SASS European Regional.  This year it was held in Phillipsburg, Germany.  It hosted 360 shooters, and it sold out in less than 24 hours.  Watch the Chronicle for an upcoming report...

 

Cheers,
