    My question is this. If you win a shot that has very few shooters(I mean less than 10) and you win the handi with a not so good score that wouldn't get you a punch generally. Do you still get punched??

    The rules for awarding earned yardage is in the ATA rulebook. It details what earned yardage is awarded for how many scores based on how many shooters. No earned yardage is awarded for less than 15 shooters, unless they qualify for earned yardage based on score or money won.

    D. EARNED YARDAGE
    1. Yardage will be automatically earned by shooters of high scores in all
    ATA registered events, according to the following table. This additional
    yardage is indicated by punches on the shooter’s Average Card.
    EARNED YARDAGE TABLE
    High Scores (and all ties)
    Shooters 1st 2nd 3rd 4th
    15-39 1/2 yd
    40-69 1 yd
    70-124 1 yd 1/2 yd
    125-249 1 yd 1 yd 1/2 yd
    250-499 1 1/2 yd 1 yd 1/2 yd
    500-1499 2 yds 1 1/2 yds 1 yd 1/2 yd
    1500 and up 2 1/2 yds 2 yds 1 1/2 yds 1 yd
    2. Any score of 96 will automatically earn 1/2 yard provided it does not
    earn at least that much under the earned yardage table.
    3. Any score of 50x50 or 75x75 in events of that length will automatically
    earn 1/2 yard provided it does not earn at least that much under the
    earned yardage table.
    4. The State/Provincial Handicap Champion will automatically earn 1
    yard provided the score does not earn at least that much under the
    earned yardage table.
    5. Any score of 97, 98 and 99 or winning a total of $750.00 or more (option
    and added money) in a single handicap event will automatically earn
    1 yard, and a score of 100 or winning a total of $1,200.00 or more
    (option and added money) in a single handicap event will automatically
    earn 1-1/2 yards provided these scores do not earn at least that much
    under the earned yardage table.
    6. In marathon Handicap events comprised of more than 100 targets,
    each 100 targets (or remaining part of 100 targets) shall constitute a
    separate event for earned yardage purposes and shall be reported
    as a separate event on the shoot report form.
    7. When multiple Handicap events are shot during the same day
    with fewer than 15 contestants, yardage will be awarded the high
    score(s), under the earned yardage table, by combining the total
    number of different individual shooters in all events with fewer than
    15 shooters.
    For example;
    Event 1 - 14 shooters, Event 2 - 20 shooters, Event 3 - 12 shooters (3
    of whom shot Event 1), Event 4 - 13 shooters (5 of whom shot Event 1
    and/or Event 3). Event 2 stands on it’s own because it has more than 15
    25
    shooters. Combining Events 1, 3, 4 total of 31 different shooters (14, 9,
    8). The high score among those 31 shooters will receive a ½ yard punch
    based on the earned yardage table.
    8. The earned yardage table applies to events of 50, 75 or 100 Handicap
    targets.
    9. A shooter’s card will be punched from the yardage actually shot
    (including penalty yardage if applicable). For example, if a shooter
    earns yardage shooting from 22 yards penalty he/she will be punched
    from the 22 yard line and not his/her normal yardage assignment.
    It is the duty of each ATA member to have his or her Average Card
    punched if yardage is earned. The Average Card must be punched
    to the correct earned yardage on the day the yardage is earned and
    before leaving the tournament grounds. If a member is required to
    leave the tournament grounds prior to the completion of a Handicap
    event, it is the member’s duty to determine if his or her score qualified
    for a yardage increase and to have his or her Average Card punched
    to the correct yardage prior to entering any subsequent registered
    event and/or tournament.
    10. The number of contestants starting the event will be the number
    used for the earned yardage table.

    "Any score of 97, 98 and 99"..."in a single handicap event will automatically earn 1 yard, and a score of 100"..."in a single handicap event will automatically earn 1-1/2 yards". All of this applies even if not applicable under the earned yardage table. If you or I go out there and break 'em all, we will get that coveted punch.

    If the score is not so good, no punch. What is "not so good"?

    Ok that answers my question. A not so good score would be in the upper 80's or low 90's IMO

    Like Sunday at Munith. Many 87-88's with one 89! Fortunately, only 14 shooters...
