Default Handicap or no handicap?

Just curious to see what the majority wants here. This will run until 5pm EST tomorrow, the majority of votes will determine what we do and will be final.

We don't need them..... They do however help beginners stay interested longer not seeing themselves 40-80 points behind the leader each week.....

The handicap as you know benefits the beginner and "handicaps" the experienced shooters... It helps keep everyone focused on their shoot.

I am fine either way...I will hold my own without one.... I just think some newbies could use the encouragemnt they offer.

I dont think we need them. We didnt last year, and I really dont care how many points behind the leader I am. I know I am not going to beat guys like Rick James, Buckeye, and mobow, but i'm just doing it to get better and to improve my shooting so one day I can be as good as the guys mentioned. It's just a fun way of competing to get better for me. That and to talk a little smack to the other guys even tho they are better.
