    An ATA Zone Shoot is held to determine Champions from among the shooters in each ATA Zone.

    Four of the five ATA Zone Shoots are "telephonic." I.e., they are held at multiple sites, on the same days, and the scores are "phoned in" to a central administration site. Actually, now, thanks to the owner of this site, we use an internet site to compile all the scores and determine winners (see link above.)

    The Eastern Zone is the only ATA Zone that has only one shoot site.

    Other than that, the shoots are conducted in essentially the same manner as any other.

    High Zone scorers who compete at the Grand American may also be included in concurrent Zone-based awards in the Singles and Doubles Championship events. Those "teams" are put together by the Zone VPs; shooters don't need to do anything additional (just shoot well.) Zone category winners/runners-up who shoot at the Grand may also be eligible for additional awards in the Singles and Doubles Championships.

    Right at the moment, the Western Zone Shoot is the largest ATA Zone Shoot. We typically have 10 sites shooting with a total of about 1700 shooters in the Championship events; approximately 900 individual shooters compete at each Western Zone Shoot.

    The Central Zone is expanding their shoot from previous years. Last year they had seven sites, and I believe this year they will add a few more.

    The Southern and Southwestern Zones usually have three or four sites. I'm hoping they will expand in the years to come.

    Anybody can shoot an ATA Zone shoot. Just like any other shoot.

    If you are "out of Zone" you will only be eligible to win site trophies.
