    My handicap yardage in ATA is 18 because of recent reductions in PITA it is 20 1/2
    I went to an ATA shoot the other day and crossfiled because I wanted it to count with PITA I shot from my PITA yardage and got lucky and won the event. I got punched from the 20 1/2. What is my ATA yardage now???????

    The rules governing punches for cross registered targets are covered in the ATA/PITA Letter of Agreement on page 63 of the ATA Rule Book.

    I believe you should shoot from your farthest yardage between pita and ATA.

    HI
    Assuming at least 25 shooters but not more than 49. You would get a 1/2 yard punch. You should double check with the club.

    Now your ATA and PITA yardage is 21 since you got a punch from the 20 1/2.

    Assuming you earned a 1/2-yard, your PITA yardage would now be 21 yards, and your ATA yardage would be 18-1/2 yards.

    From the LOA:

    "3.The rules of the host association will be accepted for cross-registration. Earned yardage will be awarded according to the rules/earned yardage chart of the host association and will apply directly to all cross-registered targets. Therefore, shooters cross-registering targets that earn yardage will have both their ATA and PITA cards punched accordingly. By cross-registering targets, shooters agree to accept the yardage increase criteria
    of the host association."

    V10. He said that it was a ATA shoot and he shot from the 20.5. So he would be punched from the 20.5. So now both cards would be 21. Had he be shooting from the 18, his ATA yardage, he would then be punched from the 18.

    Scott, it seems to me that the situation would be analogous to earned yardage with targets shot from penalty yardage. He earns 1/2 yard in PITA, so earns 1/2 yard in ATA from the point where the targets were actually shot, i.e. 1/2 yard from 20.5 yards. He is now at the 21 in both associations.

    That's as may be. But the LOA was re-written 3 years ago.

    I'd interpret ".. punched accordingly." to mean that each card is punched the amount indicated by the host association's earned yardage table or standard earned yardage rules. If each card was to be punched to the longest yardage <i>plus</i> the earned yardage, then I'd expect the LOA to just say that.

    The previous LOA did not cover the specifics of how to apply punches.

    It is obvious the poster is from Kentucky. I should have moved there when I started shooting

    Warren, when I was still a Delegate from Oregon, a few of us rewrote the agreement and tried to make the new LOA as simple as possible. Pocatello and mx8dave are correct. Both of your cards should have been punched ½ yard from where you shot from. You are now a 21 yard shooter in both associations. Remember that you always shoot your longest yardage in both associations. Good luck and good shooting. Dex
