    No. There are no requirements as to the program content, except that events must be at least 50 targets.

    If your club can only throw singles and handicap events, that's fine.

    Our Club throws steel shot...

    We started offering (3) 100 singles programs (targets-only) a few years ago. We've advertised that Handicap may be available, if we can meet minimum participation... we usually do. I do not recall ever throwing doubles.

    Through our annual "singles" leagues, we continue to offer the opportunity to register those 400 (8 wks x 50) targets to our existing ATA members, while using the league as an additional recruiting tool to introduce non-ATA recreational shooters to ATA programming... we pickup a few new ATA members every year.

    Never have offered the Big50 mid-week, but many club have success with those also...

    Like Nike says - "Just Do It!"

    regards all,

    Jay

    Let them start out with a couple Big 50s until they get the hang of it. HMB
