    For the past several days I have had no success in using the "Shoots Near Me" search function on the ATA's home page. The result, using Safari, Firefox and Chrome, is always the same. Type in the code, hit "Find" and get a brief flash and then it is back to the "Shoots Near Me" page.

    I have dropped an e-mail to the ATA webmaster about this problem during the time the office was closed for the holidays. That mail was acknowledged following the break but there is still no change in the way the search function is working. By looking at the State and Clubs page I can see there are several shoots scheduled but, since I live near three different states bordering mine, it is nice to have to only look at one search and not four different searches to see if there is a shoot reasonably close going on when I have the opportunity to try to make the shoot.

    Do you use the Shoots Near Me function and if so, is it working for you?

    There was a thread two weeks ago that dealt with this. The ATA has apparently changed their website maintenance company and they're not up to speed yet. It would be nice if they sent out replies when informed that the function is not working - but then again they've probably gotten hundreds of such notifications.

    I hope it's back up soon. I use that function quite a bit.

    When it was up and running it only located about the half the shoots near me. For whatever reason some zip codes weren't being recognized. I sent them an email but nothing was ever acknowledged or done about it.
