    My question is if you could only attend a few days which week would you attend? It would be my first Grand and would like to get the most out of the experience so I'd like to know the best time to be there. Wish I could get off work for the whole two weeks but I'm lucky the boss will let me off at all.

    Start on Wednesday the 12th and shoot through Saturday, the 15th.

    They shoot 200 singles on Wednesday, and 100 handicap each day on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.

    Good Luck!

    Most folks that only get a week come to Pre-Grand for the fact that you can shoot 100 of each every day for five days. Aug 5 Wednesday- Aug 9 Sunday.

    Go to the ATA site link above and you can download a program in PDF format.

    For easier reference see if there still is the 2009 Grand American Schedule of Events link.

    It runs from Wed Aug 5th to Sat Aug 15th. If you gotta take Monday thru Friday, I would get there Friday night Aug 7 or Sat morning Aug 8 and stay thru Sat Aug 15th, going home Sunday.

    I agree with the majority on here. Come for the championship events during the second (main) week.

    The problem with shooting 3 events a day on preliminary week is finding time to spend at the vendors. That darn shooting cuts into the shopping, visiting and eating time. Make sure you go down to the tent vendors for homemade ice cream too. Have fun and enjoy it. Harv.
