    Looks like PITA has followed suit with the reductions to match ATA. At least PITA put dates and deadlines in place.
    This message is on the PITA website. Thanks David

    From: Sue Brewer, PITA Secretary
    Ref: Urgent Rule Modification

    On 1/11/12 the Executive Committee/Central Handicap-Rule Committee
    met to address an issue created by a recent implementation of a two yard
    yardage reduction by ATA to qualified members. The ATA action
    necessitated the below modification in the best interest of those who
    participate in both Associations. For those shooters not belonging to ATA
    the modification gives their Central Handicap person broader latitude to
    grant multiple yard reductions on a case by case basis until April 1, 2012.

    This modification is effective immediately:
    Under the authority granted in Section E: Urgency Clause the
    following revision to HANDICAP YARDAGE REDUCTION, page 28
    of 2011-2012 Official Information and Trapshooting Rules letter (f)
    subsection (2), titled Honoring ATA Yardage Reductions is made.
    A PITA member meeting the requirements of this section, upon
    application, may be granted up to a two (2) yard yardage reduction
    to match a like reduction received from the ATA. A reduction
    request under these circumstances shall be submitted before April
    1, 2012. The portion of Subsection (h) requiring a minimum of 400
    PITA handicap targets, under an 89% average shall not apply to this
    rule modification. This modification supersedes paragraph (b) of
    the Handicap Yardage reduction section. This rule modification
    shall not extend beyond March 31, 2012, and expires on that date.

    Justification: Due to exigent circumstances wherein the ATA has
    announced, for a limited time period, a two (2) yard yardage
    reduction will be offered to qualified members on a one time basis.
    This has created a conflict of equality for PITA shooters. If PITA
    does not institute a similar opportunity for yardage reduction it will
    directly impact those shooters who actively participate in both
    Associations. If PITA does not grant a like reduction the
    requirement to shoot your longest yardage would have the effect of
    nullifying the ATA reduction and in some instances cause the loss of
    PITA membership and/or good will.

    I thought you posted "PITA filed suit with the ATA"!
