    The program for the GLG has two different rules for target requirements.

    Page 7 (Rules and Regulations section): Singles and Handicap are listed as 1000 in the current year and previous TWO years. 500 for doubles in the current and previous TWO years. Penalty is A class or higher for singles/doubles, 23 yards for handicap.

    Page 8 (Classification and Handicapping section): Singles, Handicap, and Doubles are listed as 1000 in the current and previous year. Penalty is minimum 1 class advancement for singles/doubles, 23 yards for handicap.

    These rules obviously conflict with regard to how many targets and over what period. Anyone from the MTA know which one is correct? There's a guy in our group who has enough or is short, depending on which rule is correct.

    Either way the penalty/handicap looks pretty liberal. Should not be a big deal.

    The previous year, 2009, listed 1000,1000,1000 targets to qualify. This MIGHT be the default for this year also.

    Scott that is a ATA program, therefore I think you should ask the ATA office. It is a very valid question. My answer would be seeing as how they published 2 requirements then the more liberal of the 2 should be used.

    You are hereby desiginated the official "finder outer". See you in a week.

    Don, I promise you, the ATA will not either know or express an opinion. When the Grand target requirements were liberalized (by my motion, actually, and passed by a majority of the BOD) there was an explicit understanding that States, Zones, and especially Satellite Grands were free to do whatever they liked without checking with anyone.

    Vandalia will not have asked, and so will not know.

    Don - see you on Thursday. I'm kind of with you, seems like you'd have to give the shooter the benefit of the doubt. We've got one guy who will have enough if it's the prior two years, but won't if it's just the prior year. He was thinking about attending a T/O (dare I say Marathon, LOL) shoot next weekend to try to get some targets in, but wasn't sure if he really needed them or not.

    If there's a problem, tell them page 8 specifies Classification and handicapping. Go with those.

    Scott -

    I was reading the same thing you were as I am in the same boat as your friend. I had 1500 handicap targets in 2008 and 500 in 2009 but only 100 so far this year. As I am only a 23.5 yard shooter, am I going to be assessed penalty yardage of 23 yards (my normal yardage anyway) if they don't allow me to use this and the last two for my target requirements? If they do, no harm no foul. I don't see any mention of tacking on a couple extra yards like the MTA does which would bump me to the 25.

    On page 8 of the GLG program, item 2 rule will be applied.
    Page 7 item 6 is incorrect
    The doubles classification is in accordance with page 8 item 2
    Sorry for the confusion.

    So if you only have 600 targets in this and the past year, you shoot penalty 23?

    Yes. Unless targets only.
