    The applications for the Texas Trapshooters Assn State Team are due no later than December 31, 2011.

    Applications must include the 3 championship event scores from two TTA Zone shoots and the 2011 Texas State Shoot, plus the total of the applicant's total target attainment in all three disciplines during the 2011 trap year.

    Email roger.cox@uwlaw.com for eligiblity info, official application forms, or to confirm receipt of an application.

    Hard copy applications should be mailed to

    ROGER COX
    2821 CROCKETT
    AMARILLO TX 79109

    If you beleive you meet the target attainment requirments or know of someone who does, please send or encourage them to send an application. We had some tough weather conditions at some of our shoots, so scores were down a bit from earlier years.

    Thanks for supporting the TTA.

    I'm not from Texas so I don't have a dog in the fight, but why would someone have to apply to make the state team?

    Michael, it is difficult for anyone to figure every shooters scores, when you count two of 5 possible zone shoots. So we just ask that if you want to be considered for the State team to send your own scores in from your best 2 zone shoots, plus the State shoot.

    It does seem like a quaint notion to do this the old fashioned way, with hard copies, snail mail and all that, but we are not quite at the point where all the individual scores from the qualfying events are maintained in a central data base. And the best two out of five event qualifier still seems to put the burden on the shooter to identify which two Zone shoots he or she wants to use for qualifying purposes.

    Hopefully . . .

    On the other hand, we would hope that having the shooters maintain responsibiilty for this helps them keep incentivized to keep up with not only qualifying event scores, but total target attainment as well.
