    Shooter information on the ATA website shows the 2 yard reduction, haven't recieved the new card yet in the mail but I intend to refuse it. Can I fill out the online reduction refusal form now or do I have to wait 'til I get the card?

    You can also tell them to never, ever, ever give you a reduction...

    I refused my reduction at the Dixie Grand last week and it made me feel good too. Woody

    Trevor,

    My handicap average is a fact of public record, just go to the ATA website shooter information and type in my name which I have posted here many times.

    FWIW I applaud the EC's willingness to TRY something, for those that choose to take the reduction......that's their business, I chose to refuse it......that's my business.

    Well I guess with an average of 85 based on 300 handicap targets last year, it doesn't matter it you stand at the 21 or 19 yard line. Stand your ground John. Refuse that reduction. Trevor Dawe

    John-

    The 2 yard reduction thing is interesting. Miles broke a 97 from the 23 at the South Dakota State Shoot moving him to the 24. He went to the Grand and shot 500 targets from the 24 - his last score at the Grand was a 94, and has not shot since then. Now he gets a 2 yard reduction to the 22. You want to partner with me to get him bought at the next calcutta?

    From what I have read so far there are 2 confusing unanswered questions about this one time offer: 1) How do you accept just a 1 yard reduction not 2 yards? 2) Why does the ATA include the standard form letter for a normal 1000 target review even if it apparently does not matter if you earned a punch in your last 1000 handicap targets ? BTW I did not get the reduction offer and that is OK I'm not crying about it.

    Mike, you might want to talk to Allan about this. Is your handicap average under the trigger point of 91? Trevor Dawe.

    Ken,

    I'd be happy to partner with you to buy Miles at the next calcutta whether he accepts the reduction or not. I've shot with Miles and watched him shoot many times and I wouldn't sell him short at any yardage.

    Trevor, my 400 Handicap targets in 2012 were shot in Helena Labor Day Shoot with a 91.0 average and my last 1000 targets were a 89.6 average and I never did understand just what group of targets were considered for the reduction. Our good friend from Mossleigh was offered the 2 yard reduction and although he has registered singles targets he has not shot a handicap target since 2006.

    Trevor,

    If you're so interested in MY buisiness I suggest you do your research a little better. #1 the reduction offered was from the 23.5 to the 21.5, #2 I shot at a WHOLE bunch more than 300 hncp targets last year.

    John, public record at the ATA web site shows 100 singles at a 95 average, 300 handicap at a 85 average and 200 doubles at a 85 average. Grind them up. Trevor Dawe.

    Also Trevor & any other of these well meaning socialists here that seem to think they know whats good for me better than I know myself,

    I made a rather lengthy reply about halfway down the ".......YES or NO" thread about my reasons WHY I'm refusing the reduction. I have no problem with those that accept and what I choose to do is non of your God-damned business.

    Some people take a hobby way too seriously. Find something else to do that doesn't cause so much stress, John.

    My State Director and dear friend suggested I take the reduction. I took it. He has never steered me wrong.
