    Was at a shoot where I withdrew from the last 100 targets of a 200 target event. When the refund was given the paper was marked as "withdrawn". My question is, on the ATA website they have my percentages for that shoot listed as 48. I shot a 96 on the 100 that I completed. Seems as though I was penalized percentagewise for withdrawing. Is this the normal way it is figured, and listed in the shooters record? If so, that would put me back in D class. LOL

    The gun club definitely made an error in reporting and you should complain to them and also send an email to Kathy Key at the ATA office. Your score should have been recorded as 96 out of 100 Not 200.

    That is what I was thinking. I looked at more shooters scores that withdrew and they had the same results posted. Thanks, Gne J

    This is not an uncommon error. Perhaps the mistake was made by the club or perhaps in the ATA office. The score should have been reported by the club as 96/100-- not just 96. The error is easily corrected by a call to the ATA office.

    The club probably didn't set up the shoot as two 100 target events which is the proper way to do it same as it should be done for a 200 target h'cap shoot.

    Eric- What is wrong with one 200 bird singles event?

    Pat,

    Breaking a 200 bird event into two one hundred bird events allows for reclassifying a shooter based on his first 100 targets. Granted it's not as drastic as an earned yardage move based on the first 100's score.

    E-mailed Kathy and told her what happened. She came back to me and said it was all taken care of now. Not just mine, but everyone that missed the last 100 had the same results. Thanks, Gne j

    Eric- If the event is a 200 bird singles race, nobody should be reclassified, either up or down, based on their first 100 birds. I do like to see the scores separated on the average card as two 100 bird events for future classification.

    I agree with Pat on this one. I have never seen two 100 target events shot back to back to get in 200 targets.
