    ragman you might want to click on the link above. It might give you a better picture of why you need to ask the question you have asked.

    By the way the reason is usually the same every year.

    The ATA is sending them out now. But it will take a little time to get them all out.

    The new target year begins on Sept. 1 and there is a time lag before many of us get our new cards. The ATA office is very busy finishing up the Grand and processing new/renewal memberships in September, but the major delay is due to gun clubs not sending in the required information promptly. This most commonly happens with canceled shoots.

    For many reasons, a club may find it necessary to cancel a shoot. The club see no reason to inform the ATA that the shoot was canceled. The office is not able to distinguish between shoots that were canceled and shoots that were held and the scores not submitted. It requires some time to get this worked out.

    Pat---Good answer, perhaps you should cut and save it for next year. :)Matt

    The explanation kinda begs the question: why be in a hurry to renew? I paid for renewal at the Grand and no one has asked for a current card. Why not wait until December when the ATA gets caught up and can process and send the cards in a reasonable time? If I don't get a card in December, how much trouble will it be to prove I renewed in August at the Grand? Just a thought. Regards, Ed

    If you don't plan on shooting until the spring, then you don't need to renew in September.

    But then you'll miss out on a lot of good tournaments.

    I've never understood why people are so concerned about when they get their new average cards. Just keep your scores on a continuation sheet and transfer them when you get your new average card.

    Scott to many of them have a hard enough time just putting their scores on the card the first time. Now you expect them to take the time to enter them again surely you jest.

    I know Bob. Silly me.

    I was about to add to my post that considering the fact that most people do not even keep their cards up to date (and some don't record their scores at all) I'm not sure why anybody is concerned about when, or even if, they get their card.

    Scott it never ceases to amaze me every year like clock work this comes up. It kind of makes you wonder if they don't just need something to complain about.

    Give the guy a break. Do a search and you'll find he has posted for less than a year so he doesn't know whats going on and he surly doesn't know what has been posted here in the past.
