    A friend of mine shot at in an ata even up in michigan a couple weeks ago, and

    won the over all, in his HDCP he won I believe he said with an 89,It was a

    very windy day and alot of lower scores were posted that day. but my question

    is they did not punch his yardage back further? was there some sort of mistake

    there or do you have to shoot a higher percentage even though you win?

    Thanks alot
    Roger

    The ATA Rule book has the Earned Yardage Table for a punch. There has to be at least 15 shooters in the Handicap Event for earned yardage. High Over All is not the Handicap Event.

    Thanks Miketmx- I am new to the ata also, just like my friend and a little

    unsure about stuff like this, he did say that there were about 50 shooters or

    so that day, but I am unsure how many shot in the HDCP Even, I guess I just

    assumed that there were more than 15, but i will find out tomorrow. I'm just

    asking because I don't think he took his card up to get punched and would

    hate to see him get disqulifed for shooting at the next ata shoot, because

    of a stupid mistake if there was one done here?

    Has he contacted the club, or his Delegate, to see if he earned yardage?

    If his 89 was high score in handicap he should have taken a punch if there were more than 14 shooters entered.
