    I think I am missing something. Looking up the Empire Grand shooters I noted that there is a Junior shooter with a "JRO" listed for his catagory, and also a couple of shooters have "TO" for theirs.

    I have looked in the Average book, and ATA web site before asking here...I guess I am missing these somewhere.

    Can someone tell me what these mean please ?

    Thanks for any info, Dave in SC

    I think is means that the individual is shooting "Targets only." People do this when they don't have the required targets to avoid penalty, but want to shoot at their usual yardage rather then farther back. For this concession, they give up the right to trophies, options, and added money, but not always shootoffs like the Krieghof at the Grand.

    Neil, I believe you are correct "TO" is for targets only. But what does "JRO" stand for? Cody Davis is listed as "JRO" and I am sure he has shot many targets this year. Tom

    I believe JRO means JR Only once a category is declared at a shoot where there are AA points available you can't change your category again for the remainder of that shoot.

    Thanks fellows !!!

    I guess that "O" would stand for "ONLY"..

    Makes sense now, but I'm surely betting others would wonder the same as I did...

    Maybe it could be incorporated into the ATA rule book next year just to eliminate confusion....

    Have a great day, Dave

    Dave, JRO stands for Junior Options, Cody pays full price and plays the money. JR is the half price JR's with no options. They are both still the same for trophies

    Seitz373- Sometimes something that seems confusing becomes very obvious when it is explained in a clear and concise way. Thank you.

    Thanks Seitz !!!

    If I could shoot like Cody and some other JRs I know, I would play the options also without hesitation...
