What spotting scope power needed for 100 yd range?

I am looking at getting an inexpensive spotting scope for the 100 yard range, what power will be adequate? Thanks!

I think mine goes to 35 but 20 is all you need.

The way that you wander is the way that you choose,
The day that you tarry is the day that you lose.
Sunshine or thunder, a man will always wonder.
Where the fair wind blows.

I own two very large expensive spotters for 500 meter groundhog shoots. But at 100 yds, and using a rifle scope of less than 10 power, I prefer to use a very old B&L 20x spotter. It is fine for that distance.
