    Help,
    I just want to know how many targets I need so I can shoot in the class I belong in. I shot 400 in each 16, doubles and handicaps last year. Did not shoot any more due to a shoulder injury. How many do I need this year to go the the Grand and shoot in the class I belong in? My 16 avg is about 93, handicap about 86 doubles about 86.
    thanks

    registered beginning the first day after the last day of previous Grand

    Thank you Neil.

    I went to the ATA web site and on that site is the 2006 rule book. Saying something like 500 targets. I was pretty sure that was not correct. I thought it was as you stated 1,000 targets.

    If I am able to go to the grand this year I will have my 1000 targets per event.

    thanks again
