    Do the targets shot after Aug 31 2008 and the beginning of the 2009 target year count for the 2009 Grand?

    Yes. It'll be easier if you bring last year's soft card, but I just checked and it will be possible to look them up if you forget. I even watched it done so I'm double-dog sure.

    Remember, the target requirements to avoid penalty just cover the current year now; there's no two-year "look-back."

    Is the Grand program available yet? If so, where can I find it? If not, does anyone know what the target requirements will be this year. Accurate info is appreciated. Thanks Pat Christopher

    If you have a rule book you can look on page 39 and it will give you this information. If not you can read it at the wed address post above. I have also posted it below.
