    What happened to the scores from the Ohio State Shoot? The Monday after the shoot the scores were listed on an individual's ATA scoring page. Now, they are gone. What is the reason? I would like to have some ATA EC member tell us.

    That is not what I am talking about. They are no longer in the Shooter Information Center on the ATA website. I want to know why the ATA took them down.

    Well, if they were posted less than 24 hours after the shoot ended, then they broke the World Record for having scores posted to the Shooter Information Center.

    If they were posted, then the reason that they were taken down was most likely that payment wasn't received yet.

    And, you'll have better luck emailing the EC, than posting your demand here. I don't think anybody on the EC wastes time reading trapwhiners.com.

    V10,

    Us whiners are thinking to ourselves;

    ..let's see, the ATA is 10 million dollars in the black, have an abysmal record at getting the scores to post within a suitable time frame, and refuse to post the scores until they receive payment from each single payer constituent.

    The ATA is a record keeping outfit, and they SUCK at it.

    Our paying dues, and fees, should be reason enough for all scores to post immediately!

    V10- Scott,

    I believe your job as a Delegate is to try and help fix a problem, not come down on someone for bringing up what he things is a problem.

    Your comments to BLACKLAB were uncalled for.

    I am one of the shooters who enjoy visiting "trapwhiners.com

    Where was there a mistake or problem? It's absurd for people to whine and cry because their scores that were shot not more than two weeks ago are not on a dang computer screen for them to see yet. What the heck would have changed with those scores from the couple of weeks ago when you shot 'em. Look at your paper average card if you just want to look at your scores.

    The problem that BLACKLAB was referring to was the scores for the Ohio State shoot were on the Shooter Information Center of the ATA website on Monday of this week.

    I believe BLACKLAB was just trying to find out why they were taken down

    I use the ATA site to make sure that I put the correct score on my paper card and that the correct score was sent to the ATA.

    When this ATA site was being developed one of its main uses was for the shooter to check his scores. If not for that why do we even need it?

    Ron,

    I've already given a possible reason as to why, if they were put up, they might have been taken down.

    I'd like proof that they were even put up. As I pointed out, if they were put up, then they were put up faster than any scores I've ever heard of.

    Not sure why people think that posting here is the proper course of action whenever they have a complaint.

    If "blacklab" really wanted to find out the reason for this alleged misdeed, he could call or email the ED, or, better yet, his own Delegate.

    As I said earlier, another person asked the same question.

    And yes I did e-mail my ATA delegate. Just waiting to hear.

    I thought that another ATA delegate or EC member maybe on this site and my have the answer.

    V10, On the "Ohio State Shoot Super" thread, I posted on Monday June 25th at 5:01..."Holy crap the scores are already posted on the ATA website. Who says Ohio and the ATA don't get along."

    They were there. And must have been taken off by the ATA.

    I brought the thread to the top.

    And, I'd still guess that if they were put up, they were put up in error. I can't imagine that payment was received 24 hrs after the shoot.

    And despite what some people may think of the practice, it is standard procedure to not post scores until payment has been received.

    That's what I assumed. Didn't know that was the procedure.

    "trapwhiners.com"....Good one.

    Politics & protocol aside....what would be a realistic timeframe for posting of scores on the ATA website with the technology of today?

    This is what I do for a living and I can say with certainty that there is no reason scores could not be entered and displayed virtually real-time. Whatever the reason is for the delays it isn't the technology.

    The Cornhusker Nationals Trapshoot was held in May. On Friday the senior high shooters shot 100 singles targets. (this is not a small shoot as more than 2,000 shooters participated). The shootoffs were done by 7:00PM or so. By 10:00 PM the results were on the web. High school, girls high school and 4-H team results, individual medal/trophy winners and a list of all shooters and their scores were posted online.

    Handicap yardage for this shoot is determined by how well you shoot your singles targets. This means that Saturday's handicap squad/yardage cannot be determined until 16's are over. By 9 PM all the handicap squads/post/yardage was online. As a coach I was able to go online and see when/where the 33 girls on my team were supposed to be for handicaps.

    This was done by a bunch of volunteers (albeit amazingly qualified volunteers). The technology is there to do things pretty much in real time.

    Thanks for the replies...so if the technology is there to have the scores posted in short order....the question is why are they not posted as such?

    I saw something about payment receipt being the issue? I wish someone would expand/explain the reason/rational for this...again..my only motivation for asking is to learn.

    According to V10's post, the ATA won't post the scores till they receive the daily fees or any other fees associated with the shoot.
