I'm sure that people don't attend just to shoot in a Club Team!

..... most people's reason to attend a shoot would probably be something like this:-

1st The enjoyment of shooting and having a good day out.
2nd Meet friends/other people and have a good old chat.
3nd Try and do as well as possible in one's own class (grading system normally in place).
4th The shooting in a "Club Team" would I feel be fairly well down the list, especially if a handicap system is in place.

(although some poeple may reverse 2nd and 3rd)

Yes, we would all agree that getting more people to our events is good for the sport, but I am totally convinced that having an handicap system for the Team event will NOT actually acheive this.

Shooting in a team is more about commitment, pride and wanting to do as well as possible for the other members of the team.
