    No need to call. Once the report gets to the ATA they'll send a pin out to you.

    Congratulations

    I think Leo gets a donation from all yardages,...... not many on the 19yd that can beat his score,......

    Congrats on your achievement. Not that many make it there. Even less can stay there unless they turn down the reductions.

    Nice work,

    Don't let the yardage spook you, you can still win from the fence.

    Now you only have two yardages to master, 16 and 27, there are some advantages to this.

    Pin and certificate will follow. I've been there twice and got a pin for both times. One, three years after I started shooting (1974) I think. Took reductions and didn't shoot much for about 20 yrs. The last one I got was when Neil Winston was ATA pres. Pin and certificate with his signature. Now I'm on the forward march again. Hope to get turned around this year. LOL

    Congrats on your accomplishment RHAT
    Shoot well

    Congrats

    I make it to the 27 yard line every time I shoot handicap. Then I take about 3 more steps on my way to the 24 yard line...

    I'm gonna get there this year. I prob would have made it back in the late 80s except I began to crossfire and tried to solve it with release triggers. And then the quest began to find coordination once again. I have found it now, but handicap scores have moved up a couple of targets and getting a 96 or above is seemingly more difficult than when I was younger. Regardless, when I get to the 27 I will celebrate my victory with a long pull on a scotch bottle and jabber my wife to death.


    Congrats Rhat.
