Church Groups in Open play

i always end up bunkering a nun or some old guy. then i feel bad. Does anybody else think that church groups should be forced to run in private groups?

THe ref should explain the risk, if they can't handle it then they should make it a private group. If they're cool then game on. THis belongs in PB:talk...not ST though.

No bunkering in open play is the general rule around these parts. It happens though.

if they are aware of the risks then it shouldnt be enforced. the field needs to do a good job making new people aware of the fact that there will be other people who have played many many times before that they may or may not have to play with. And if they feel comfartble doing that fine and if not they need to have a private group.

I think it's the fields' responsibility to separate that days players into appropriate groups(beginners, novice, & advanced) if they have enough people for each group. If they do not have enough people to separate by experience, than they should make the rules appropriate for the lowest experience level participating.

Anybody should be able to play with whatever group they want to play with, but by that group's rules. If you are advanced for the group that you have to play with, use that time to make yourself better. Try playing with your offhand, or from the back row, or with a pump. Anything that will even the odds a little bit, and make you a better player.

In addition to what Loki said, you should be able to recognize if you're playing against a newbie or a regular or someone who may be experienced just by snapshooting against them anyway...

Play in the advanced group or airball? They're new, let them play. Maybe they didn't have enough people or enough cash to shell out for a private group. Recognize your opponents and play accordingly. It's not their fault you have poor field awareness.

Not so much why should they be playing and getting bunkered by you. I strongly think your logic is flawed. It should be why the **** are you even bunkering anybody in open play in the first place. Especially nuns and old people. Open play is that.. Open play, its for anyone and everyone who wants to play, but doesnt have a group and just wants to play with openly with others. It shouldn't matter who you are, as long as you can play.
