    1). Did you shoot it last year?
    2). If not, have you asked to receive one?
    3). It's available, online at shootata.com.

    I was gonna post Bill Engvalls "Here's Your Sign" and then i remembered i was gonna try not to start sh!t here or be a smart a$$ this whole week. I'm not sure how that's gonna work out. :)

    Ron--I don't think they send one to every ATA member. Like most shoots, i think they send them out to those that have attended before however i could be wrong about that. I do know that not everybody that normally gets one has recieved theirs yet so if you normally do get one it will be there soon. If not, i'm sure if you call the ATA they will mail you one out. If not, send me a PM and i'll see if there are extras at the WSRC and i'll mail you one myself.

    As far as I know, they send one out to whomever had registered targets. But I could be wrong.

    However, this is the USPS we are talking about delivering these. Why not call up the ATA and confirm?

    I shoot only 2 ATA registered events every year, never been to the Grand, and I get the Grand book every year. Mine just came yesterday.

    Ron just for the record you have registered a lot more targets than I have and I have never been to the grand. I did go to 5 state shoots which is one less than you. I got my Grand American program in the mail this past week.

    Regardless, give them a call. Even the ata makes mistakes.

    I think you have to be over 6-feet tall.

    Ron,

    The only time we ever got there was in 1996, and still get ours every year...

    BOTH arrived Saturday here in the Low Country of South Carolina...

    I can send you one !!! Our Grand is going to be the Cardinal Classic...

    Can't afford both, and Ohio is on our way to NY for the North Eastern Grand...
