    I have a question reguard ing Section X, State and Zone Shoots, <br>
    par D ATA TROPHIES. sub Par 5 <br><br>
    (c)Chair over all categories<br><br>
    What is a Chair? as indicated above<br>

    Full Paragraph below<br>
    5. Options available to category shooters:<br>
    (a) Take out right or shoot-off/carry-over for his/her category<br>
    forfeiting any place, class or yardage group trophy.<br>
    (b)Take outright or shoot-off/carry-over for place, class or yardage<br>
    group trophy forfeiting any category trophy.<br>
    If the shooter fails to make a declaration within the specified time, shoot<br>
    management shall declare for the shooter and place the shooter as<br>
    mandated by Paragraph D., 5., (a).<br>
    If a shooter is placed in more than one category, shoot management<br>

    When there are both Junior and Sub-Junior trophies, the Junior must<br>

    A chair shooter is someone who shoots from a wheelchair because of physical impairment.

    If you search for the word chair in the 2009 ATA rule book you will find it mentioned 11 times.<br>
    for Chairman of a committe 4 times on Pg22, p22, p67,p88<br><br>

    A chair Shooter in Pg 62. <br><br>

    WheelChair pg 32, pg32,p62<br><br>

    chair on pg 32, p32<br><br>

    I now agree that the chair reference refers to a Wheelchair shooter and a shooter who hauls a chair from post to post. BUT there is no word link in this years rule book the establish that connection. There should be a definition of what a "Chairshooter" is!

    You are right, mike31z. There should be. And, in fact, the BOD will be given the Rules Committee's recommendation on that subject at the annual meeting and I hope they pass it.
