Question CentOS - Samba Share

I was wondering if there is any easy way for me to create a share via Samba that doesn't require me to create a user for each person connecting to it.

I have about 50 users that'll need access to the share and I would rather stay away from a Windows server.

Why not using an anonymous share?
Or you could write a bash script for creating an enabling the samba users.
