    Can someone please explain why one of my friends (eastern zone) has a 90.05 average, 3 punches on his last 1000, and STILL managed to get a nice two yard reduction. He refused, but how many people are getting undeserved reductions? I thought the codes in the computer worked. Apparently not a perfect system huh??

    My 2011 rule book page 65 shows the above listed info.

    Have any of these been changed? If so when?

    How many years do they go back for your overall average?

    As usual, Gary is wrong again, old information. All the correct info is available at shootata.com

    But, just this one time, for those who can't find the URL, or won't look, I'll post the pertinent data..

    Finally the EC also provided that on a one time basis all shooter whose purified Handicap average below the “trigger point” for each Zone (Eastern, Southern, Western, Southwestern Zone are currently 90.0% Central Zone is 91%) will be offered a 2 yard reduction subsequent to review by the Zone CHC member and the Delegate. For this one time offer all computer codes excepting “L” codes will be removed.

    Accorfing to the on-line rule book the Eastern and Southern zones are 89%. Why are they different? Why aren't they all the same? JRM

    I just got another new rule book in the mail today dated Sept 1st, 2011,
    the other one was dated Sept 1st, 2010. Wonder why they have not discarded the old ones?

    And the Central Zone is 91% wonder why that is when the warmer zones have lower break points, where you shoot more and scores are higher.

    Doesn't make sense to me.

    Per the ATA site.


    Finally the EC also provided that on a one time basis all shooter whose purified Handicap average below the “trigger point” for each Zone (Eastern, Southern, Western, Southwestern Zone are currently 90.0% Central Zone is 91%) will be offered a 2 yard reduction subsequent to review by the Zone CHC member and the Delegate. For this one time offer all computer codes excepting “L” codes will be removed.

    Purified Average -Handicap average with up to 2 scores 10% below the shooters average tossed out

    Trigger Point - the average that triggers an offer of a reduction on the normal 1,000 target review if the shooters purified average fall below that number Shooters may 1) accept the 2 yard reduction, 2) accept a 1 yard reduction, or 3) refuse the reduction entirely.
