    It is difficult to understand why it takes so long for the staff at the ATA, to process membership payments after they are received!


    Back in early August I received my annual membership/dues notice. On 8/4/2013 I sent in my check for the membership, year 2014.


    Here it is, over a month since I sent in my check. The check has NOT cleared the bank nor have I received new average card.


    Yes, I know I can got to shootata.com and print out an average card, of which I did. I must ASSUME that sooner or later my check will be processed, I can than adjust my check book and look forward to receiving my cards.


    Frustrated in Pennsylvania,

    Frank

    Must be a bitch for you waiting 2-3 months for match fee checks to clear....

    I wonder what the deal is, its not like they have anything else to do during the month of August or shortly after.

    By the way, I paid mine online and it was credited (shootATA average card showed paid through 2014) almost instantly.

    Also when I do write a check I deduct the check amount at the same time so my account is adjusted correctly.

    I sent my renewal in on 8/13/13 and still have not seen a charge on my credit card account.

    Deposited money earns interest for the ATA. May be small change for the organization, but.....

    It's that time of the year:

    Where's my average card? I sent my check. You can mark your calendar by it.

    Paid my membership fees for 2014 three weeks ago. The ATA told me the 2014 cards don't go in the mail until the second week in October.

    Renewed my Victoria Secrets card a week ago.

    I don't care about the card, just want the catalogs!

    I paid mine 38 years ago, no problems after I finally got the first card I get one once a year ever since ... I don't know when I get but I know I get it, that's for sure ... My Mother always used to tell me when I was a kid "Billy, your going to get it one of these days" ... WPT ... (YAC) ...

    They must wait for the end of the target year .... and the time they allow for scores to be turned in from all Clubs after 9-13. Your new card will then reflect your proper totals. Receiving new cards in October sounds about right to me!!

    I pay my ATA dues with Paypal... the ATA is set up for it and I find some satisfaction in renewing my shooting sports membership thru an anti-gun group...

    Easy and fast... same way I make my donations to TS.com...

    Pay at your local ATA shoot and keep the receipt as a record that you paid - then it doesn't matter when the ATA processes it, you've got proof. BTW, this is an absolute must if you're going to shoot Michigan's Fall Team Shoot or Middletown's Fall Handicap, both scheduled in September (also bring last year's average card).

    Really? This is a topic worthy to post here? Like, really? Who writes checks anymore...if you're on this web site, then you have a computer, so set up a PayPal account and use it - the results are almost immediate. Then you can use this forum to complain about other, more worthy things like snap caps, the start date of the shooting year, why some trap shooters don't wear hats and how ported barrels make your head hurt, etc.

    What's the fun of complaining if someone is going to demonstrate common sense.

    I mailed my check to pay the annual dues on August 3rd and it cleared my bank on August 27th. I thought this was real good particularly considering the amount of office work the staff has with the Grand going on at the same time.
