    Hopefully late May or the first week in June. At the BoD meeting in August the lateness of the 2009 Grand program was recognized as a significant problem. There was a commitment made to do much better this year.

    Is there anything in particular you are interested in knowing?

    This year's Grand American will start on Tuesday (instead of Wed) and the prelim weekend events have been changed to accomodate the AIM kids. Also a doubles race has been added on Thursday of grand week. We will be using more banks and shootoffs will begin as soon as possible after the program, instead of waiting until 9 p.m.

    Karla,

    Are you sure about the Tuesday start? Tuesday is the 3rd of August. Shootata.com shows the start as the 4th which is Wednesday.

    Karla,

    Can you notify the ATA it's listed as follows:

    "The 2010 Grand American will be held August 4-14, 2010"

    It's a 2 minute fix if they know about it...

    Thank you,
    TNCoach

    Any thoughts to using white clays after dark. I remember they use to use white clays after dark. It sure would make it nicer for the shooters and the scorers

    I will get in touch with the office in Vandalia. As for white targets, they are fun to watch when they break, kind of like fireworks, but with the lights at Sparta, not necessary.

    You can see the orange ones better than you can see them in the day at night there. But as for the grand dates I heard 4-14 of August.

    With those lights it doesn't make much difference. I prefer white, however.

    If the start date is a day earlier than what has been shown on the ATA website and in the Trap and Field shoot directory is the last day the 14th or the 13th? Also are there still five prelim days or six? Accurate info would be appreciated. Thanks, Pat Christopher

    Six Prelim days, and ends on the 14th.

    Prelim Wk ends on the 8th. Grand Wk starts the 9th.
