    After turning 65 and being eligiable to shoot in vet class, you sign up to shoot vet, do you have to shoot vet every shoot after that? I would still like to shoot class occasionally.

    You'll be shooting in BOTH category and class. It's your responsibility to tell shoot management about your category when classifying. (Of course, not all shoots offer category and/or class trophies.)

    If you qualify for both a category and a class trophy at the end of the event, you must notify shoot management which you'll take (or shoot off for) within 15 minutes of the end. Otherwise, management must assume you want category.

    The rule you're thinking of applies to Veterans going to Senior Veteran, and Sub-Juniors going to Junior.

    IV, J, 7: Shooters who become eligible for new age based categories during
    the target year may elect to continue to compete in the previous
    category for the remainder of that target year. (For example a shooter
    reaching age 70 may elect to continue to shoot as a Veteran for the
    remainder of the current target year.) However, once a shooter has
    elected to move to the new category that decision is irrevocable and
    he/she may not again declare eligibility for the previous category.
    Junior shooters reaching the age of 18 may continue to declare Junior
    category for the remainder of the current target year.

    Hickie, in a nutshell, reaching "Vet" age doesn't remove you from the regular, average classifications. You remain in whatever class determined by your average but you ALSO can qualify for the "special category" of Veteran. Generally shoot management will limit you to one or the other if you qualify for both class and special category (applies to Jr., Sub Jr., and Lady too) and I've seen a dozen ways to see that's applied fairly.....breakemall....Bob Dodd
