    Sorry,
    Been out of shooting for a while, Med problems. What happened to the 50s?
    With the all the prices going up and the shooting going down at small club shoots, what happened? Isn't this a way for the small clubs and the ATA to promote registered shooting?

    Chazz- In my area the 50 bird event did not turn out to be very popular. Shooters wanted to shoot more birds and it was a lot of work for the management.

    JF- A $1.00 ATA fee for 50 birds or a $2.50 ATA fee for 300 birds. I think I know which one is the best bargain for me.

    Some states charge the fee, reduced but still a fee. Covers the expenses and no one gripes about it.

    How does a club go about starting to throw Big 50 events?
    Can you simply do it spur of the moment or must you get approval from ATA weeks ahead etc?

    The last time I knew, Prince George's Trap and Skeet in Maryland still throws big 50s. I like it, because it is like practice, only it makes me work harder because I know it's registered.

    We shoot the Big50 at our club here in Washington state; it gives a lot of older shooters the opportunity to get their 500 birds in, and still be an active ATA member, without having to travel and, as some will realize someday, it isn't easy to stand up to a 200, 300 or 400 bird weekend!
