    Handicap and Allowance tables

    I am currently using rules for handicapping and the associated tables for handicaps and allowances which were issued in 'the green book' in 2010.

    I have looked on the AGB website and while classification tables are available I can't find the above. Is it a copyright issue?

    I can google it and find umpteen clubs publishing this information.

    Where can I get an authoratative source?

    Are my 2010 tables current?

    Thanks for any help

    I think some of the classification scores have changed since 2010 (it might have been just before, might have been just after). They can be found from page 46 onward on THIS LINK from the AGB Shooting Admin Procedures.

    The handicap tables/allowances wouldn't have changed from your 2010 book, and yes, it is a copywrite issue (though I think that might have changed in recent years).
    Knowing is half the battle, the other half is violence

    Thanks Bimble. I am aware of the information on the AGB website regarding classifications. The website of our governing body to whom my club pays many hundreds of pounds was the first place I looked. I could find no information on handicaps or allowances.

    Even if it explained that one of the bedrocks of our sport, and the tables I use every day belong to someone else and explained where I could find them, or if they just gave the date of the most recent issue it would be something.

    Interesting that yours is the only only reply I have had and still no answer.

    last week I spoke to a couple of inexperienced officials at other clubs who asked my advice. I had to scan my 8 year old copy, complete with scribbled notes, and clearly marked copyright and send it. I was embarrassed!

    There are some good computer programs and apps available to save the trudgery of working out handicaps by hand
    I use Golden Records for my club members

    Thanks - thats helpful. I am aware of a number of them and I presume they have the appropriate permisssions. Perhaps I should go to one of the cheap phone apps to verify that my tables are up to date.
    Having looked at golden records in the past it seems quite good. Sadly though a surprising number of people involved in my club and others are not very IT literate so my attempt to get our club to use it was unsuccesful.

    Sometimes you have to take the first step, so volunteer as records officer at your next AGM, then implement golden records. Golden records also has an online version (although I dont use it myself) that looks quite good. For a small monthly fee, you can submit records from anywhere and view your records too, but maybe thats a step too far for the non IT crowd
