    If you still have your ATA card just show up and shoot.

    You will be handicapped at the last yardage you were when you quit shooting.

    Wouldn't he qualify for the recent 2-yard reduction?

    The recent 2 yard reduction was ONLY offered to those who met the average cut off AND who's dues were paid up at that time.

    If your who I remember your still going to be onthe 27.lol

    Seriously Tom, Kathy Key at the ATA office is who can help you. Don't remember what may have happened to you but concerning your disability, one can make a special written request through their delegate for yardage reduction. Typically two yard reductions are given dependent of circumstances.

    Tom, please stay home. We were very tired of getting beat by you on a regular basis over 20 years ago. I'm hoping that Franchi has finally turned into a pile of rust and is no longer serviceable.

    Seriously, welcome back.

    The rest of you shouldn't feel too sorry for Tom as he was one of PA's finest shooters back in the 80's. I'd hate to see him standing on the 20!!

    Tom, do you remember which end to put the shell in? I won't drive you home with a truck load of trophies.
