    Been told there are no handicap marathons. Is this true? Its my first year ATA, and I really don't want to penalyzed for the PA shoot in June and I need to pick up a thousand. Having no trouble picking up singles, but handicaps are pretty tough to find. I know it will pick up but times-a-waistin'. If its not true, who has one in the SE PA area? I would be willing to travel out to the Harrisburg area, pretty much anywhere in NJ, Delaware, and down around Baltimore if necessary.

    Thanks

    Handicap marathons don't work too well. You have to wait until everyone completes their firat 100, to see who gets punched, before you can start the second hundred. HMB

    Find at least two more shooter (preferably within your yardage group ) and request to shoot addittional handicap targets at the next registered shoot you attend. It only requires a minimum of three shooters to register the scores. Break a 96 or more and you still get punched.
