    Check out VII-E-10 in the rule book.

    10. When firing, the contestant’s feet must be behind the firing mark
    at 16-yards, or behind the mark for the Handicap yardage assigned to
    him/her, depending upon the event being participated in. <i>The contestant
    must stand with at least one foot on an imaginary line drawn through
    the center of the trap and continuing through the center of the post, or
    have one foot on each side of the line.</i>
    Exceptions to the rule contained
    in the second sentence of this paragraph may be granted by the referee/
    scorer due to inequalities in the shooting platform, and shall be granted
    for wheelchair contestants. Wheelchair contestants shall position their
    chair so that the center of mass of their body is over the place where
    they would stand as required by this rule if no chair were used. If a
    contestant fails to follow this rule in its entirety, the referee/scorer shall
    rule any target fired at and broken a “NO TARGET,” but if fired at and
    missed, the referee/scorer shall rule the target “LOST.” For example,
    targets shot at and broken from the wrong yardage marker must be
    shot over, targets shot at from the wrong yardage marker and missed
    will be scored “LOST.”

    So, I generally place my back heel (left foot) on centerline, and position myself appropriately for the stance I want from there.

    My rule for moving the mic;

    I move it wherever I want it, then leave it there. If the next shooter doesn't like it where I put it then he can move it wherever HE want's it.

    when I am on post four I just want the shooter on post five to head west right now! I will deal with the mike alot faster then he can walk acrossed to post one and then fiddle with that mike also,

    And with my shoe size I can stand off in the dirt and still have a foot across the center line, but I don't.

    Sent an E-mail to the ATA on 4/26 and requested a new (September 2006 rev.)rules book. It arrived today 4/30.


    This is GREAT customer service by the gals in the ATA office.
