Important Changes:

  1. Please have your current ATA dues paid in advance. Come prepared!! ATA memberships are easily purchased through your local club prior to the state shoot.
  2. All shooters are required to have their current ATA card and average card with them and all targets and averages up to date before classification. Don’t rely on computers. It is the shooter’s responsibility to present their current ATA card and average card with targets and averages compiled.
  3. The Diamond Badge will be based upon the First 25 targets of Friday’s Memorial Handicap and the First 25 targets of Saturday’s Championship 16s. There will be no separate Diamond Badge event on Sunday morning. Any ties will be decided by subsequent 25s in each if needed.
  4. Shooting will start at 8:00 AM Saturday morning for the Championship 16s.
  5. Penalty classification has been changed. If shooters do not have their qualifying targets completed, they will be advanced “one class” for singles and doubles. For handicap, shooters will be advanced 2 yards. No longer Class A minimum or 24 yard line minimum. This applies to all shooters, regardless of category.
  6. The Annual Meeting and election of officers has been moved to 8:00 AM on Sunday morning followed immediately by the Championship Handicap.

These changes were done to gain the time we desperately need on Saturday’s Shootoffs and Sunday’s conclusion of trophies.

Sincerely,
Scott Messenger
President, MTA
