I was talking to a bunch of shooters at a match yesterday. I've been thinking about a proposal I'd like to suggest.
At every match, the last stage of the day would be a "standard" stage. Could be called a "reference" stage.
Set up exactly the same way at every match in the country. Exact same distances, exact same size targets, Exact same layout and relatively easy scenario. No knock downs that might be set harder or softer. Simple rifle, pistol and shotgun targets.
In this way folks could see how much they are progressing as the year and their SASS life goes on. And folks could compare their times with friends and others around the country.
Everyone I've mentioned this to thought it had merit.
What say the ranch?

Sounds like what the folks in USPSA and IDPA would call a "Classifier" stage.

The idea's not bad but IMHO I doubt very seriously that you would convince very many clubs at all to do that.  Just not that important to most.

To see how I'm progressing I simply observe how I am finishing in the overall each month. From time to time I will look back 6 months to a year or so and see what my typical times were. When it comes to comparing myself to others I look at how the big annuals pan out for me.

We did something close to that for YEARS.  a 6-10-4 'speed stage' so you could see how fast & accurate you could get.  Kept scores on a running tab so you could go up against fellow shooters.  In the beginning, everyone participated.  After a while, people got bored with it, participation went down till no one wanted to do it any more. As a result, we quit doing it.
