    US OPEN pre-squadding begins on March 19th at PreSquad.com!

    For your convenience, if you use a credit card (or Paypal) for your pre-squadding fees on PreSquad.com, the IDNR will pay the handling charge.

    Has the Program been generated yet?

    If so where on the ATA site is it hiding?

    It was on the ATA website for several days. They may have had to remove it to free up space. Dennis B

    Congratulations to the sponsors of this event. It is in the interest of the sport that the facility is used and enjoyed by the competitors.

    The IDNR furnishes the facility, the ATA owns and furnishes the traps, the sponsors are organizing and operating the event. Who enjoys the profits or suffers any losses that result from this shoot?

    Curious ATA Life Members, who do have a dog in the fight, would like to know.

    All,

    Bank numbers have not been changed. The layout map of banks is still the same. The difference is that they will shooting 50 per trap.

    Banks will be listed on PreSquad.com as: 4a, 4c, 5a, 5c, 6a, 6c,...

    You are correct about banks 4-14 being for singles/handicap, and banks 15-27 for doubles.

    Also, please make an extra effort to pay the presquadding fees by credit card (or Paypal). The IDNR will pay any handling charges for this shoot. They are doing this because they are really not staffed to open tons of envelopes and process checks. They will appreciate the reduced workload of electronic payments.

    I presquaded yesterday and could not figure out how the squads jumped around so much. An event will start out with banks one through twenty-two and skip to forty-seven. Why the holes? Then it will force you to squad on the first go around saying that the next group of banks is too close to the next event. What's up?

    Gary,

    The squad numbers are based on a 27 bank system. Not all banks are being used on all events. That explains the "holes".

    Also, PreSquad.com will prevent you from squadding late on one event and then too early on the next event. If you think in terms of "flights", this allows the club to begin the next event even before the previous event has finished.

    So then, some events will not have a squad one?

    Correct. Since Doubles events are using the upper banks, those events begin with squad 23 (24 on Event #9).

    (By the way, this system was devised by the ATA for the Grand. The IDNR is simply using the ATA's method for squad numbering.)

    I did not attend the Grand last year and was not aware of how the ATA did the squadding. I want to say that this is the most ambiguous method of squadding I have ever seen at any shoot! This is one gigantic big heap! This detracts from the shoot being well run. Thanks for your clarification. Gary
