    I can't give you the name, John; but it was the 18 1/2hcp junior shooter that signed up at the last minute. His brother entered him, and bought him for $15, then he shot on a very late squad, I'm told. His 98 was high and they took all the money home with them. I don't expect us PA boys understand Calcutta's all that well, yet; but we got an education, yesterday....grin.

    I'll be working on my reduction and name change, getting ready for next year, so Barb can buy me, and... WE'LL BE RICH.....WOO-HOO!!!

    BTW, we think attendance was down, a little, but expect it to be way up,next year, because of the Calcutta. It's my understanding the Grand was PA's money shoot, in the old days.

    best....mike

    Calcutta's are a great thing...and could be a boon to the trapshooting community.

    We fish some tournaments in the Keys and the calcutta's will run in excess of $100K and most are $250K +.

    This amount of money will never be seen at a trapshoot no matter the size.

    Curt, actually the 100K figure has been seen in trap and in recent times in Vernal.

    Yep, the Pa. GRAND, in the early years was the MONEY SHOOT! Even had a HALF BARREL of beer tapped for the Calcutta! And then came the BEER POLICE!

    Yes the old Pa Grand was quite a shoot. It was a 200 bird handicap and shooters came from all over to shoot it. We had a lot of vendors too, not like it is today.

    Mike, actually Jim Youd won with the lone 98, he's not a junior and he didn't sign up at the last minute and he's not on the 18yd line. I'm thinking your story was just that...a story?

    Zinger, you should contact the PSSA and get them to correct their reports. James P. Youd jr. was punched 1.5 yards from the 18.5 to the 20 yard line. Either he is a junior or a old man to be standing on the 18 yard line and shooting handicap.

    Curt $100,000 is the Captain's tip in the White Marlin Open, of course if trap guns were as expensive as marlin boats I would be out of the trap shooting game.

    Excellent, Jim Youd won. I shoot with Jim often. I think he is a 20 or 20.5. Super nice guy and a lovely wife too. Good shooting Jim! And if his brother bought him, well good call Tim! Tim posted a 97 at the Ohio State shoot, looks like it rubbed off on Jim.

    Jim is my neighbor at PSSA so I know he's not a junior....and I wouldn't call him an old man either! I'm happy he won!

    It sure takes a lot of hard work and dedication to shoot your way to the 18 1/2!!

    Andy, I always thought any male between the ages of 18-65 were only allowed to shoot handicap at no less then the 20 yard line. Have they changed the rules?

    Great question. I don't have the current rulebook in front of me. As we know, the rules seem to change without notice!!

    According to Bob Stuart's results from the PA Grand, Jim Youd shot from the 18.5 yard line. Jim broke 98 out of 100 handicap targets and was high score in the Calcutta. Jim earned 1.5 yards for his 98 and will now be shooting on the 20.0 yard line.

    Ollie -

    I have to disagree with your assertion that you don't have a rulebook in front of you. If you are on ts.com, then you have a rulebook in front of you.

    http://www.shootata.com/Content/About_The_ATA/ATA_Rule_Book.aspx

    You can follow the link (also posted above) to the ATA website that has the rulebook in on-line form. It even has a list of rule changes for the current target year.

    Scott

    Scott,

    I try to comment about things about which I'm feel reasonably sure to be correct. I expected someone else to reassure us that the rules for allowing the winner to shoot from the 18 1/2yd. line were followed correctly. Since he may have been actually classified by the current ATA Treasurer or his assistants, it didn't seem such a flagrant error could be possible. That said, it must have been quite an effort for a grown individual to shoot that outstanding score from such short yardage. I commend his accomplishment!!
