    Where can I view the 2010 Grand program? I tried the ATA website and couldn't find it.
    Thanks,

    I'd expect it by the end of May.

    What are you looking for?

    Well, before it comes out, I would like to make a suggestion.

    Last year I watched them set every trap for the last event of the day and throw a minimum of 10-20 pairs of targets for each trap and they did this day after day all through the whole Grand! I found that highly wasteful! Why don't they start with doubles first the next day after shooting them last on the day before, it seems as though that might save them quite a few targets during the Grand.

    A good way to keep their costs down. Biff

    I am interested in what days they are shooting hdcp. I'm going for 2 or 3 days and want to make reservations.
    Thanks

    Missed some, you are very observant and I tip my hat to you!

    Let's say everytime I shot doubles, I got to my field early and watched as the setter moved from one field to the next to the next throwing pair after pair of targets getting it set right. I saw them coming from many fields away and after they passed me for many more fields. I was thinking "I sure wish I could be practicing on all those which are just going to waste!" I just felt it was a pity that all those targets were being thrown on each trap and seemed like a waste as they do cost the ATA which passes that on to the shooters! Biff
