    WHY did the ATA change

    Now, it's a lot more difficult to find out clubs and shoots information for registered shoots. They show no year with the dates and have pasts dates mixed in calender. I'm very confused.

    So, other than Curtis, nobody noticed that the ATA website changed the "clubs and shoots" info?? Check it out, it's darn difficult to exact dates of shoots.

    Tron, if clubs just use the service in the above link, they will get not just the date right, but the program right up on the site as well.

    titewad2 this is just an thought if you are interested in 8 year old scores. Why don't you copy them to a folder in your own computer and you can store them.

    These scores that you refer to are easily copied and pasted to your own computer so why would you expect the ATA to store something that you want?

    WHY did the ATA change

    Hello Tron,
    When I look at the club page, it seems that it is listing only the shoots for the current shooting year, in date order, oldest shoot date first. The listing also allows for a link to the program for the shoot. The L at the end of the column, represents that the shoot was classified as a league shoot.

    As clubs send in the results, you will also see the results for each shoot as a link.

    I think that having everything in one place is actually pretty nice.

    You will also notice a change in color of the past shoot dates, to help distinguish, future shoot dates,(This is going to be finished soon)

    As for the scores, the current system only had the year 2000, to the current time frame in it. The older scores were done in a different system. There is a project in place to add the old years back to 1994, but the type of data collected has changed, and funding/interest has not been a top priority.


    I am confused regarding titewad2's comments. Typically there is more information about a club , than the clubs web page. Most do not have a direct map, with the ability to add directions, and do not include the GPS coordinates. The ability to store the data is not the problem, but to get the clubs to submit the changes to the ATA.

    If you know of changes that need to be made, please submit them.

    titewad2 you asked "Why were they removed? I don't for certain but I would think to save space on their website for future scores.

    You also asked "How would one go about backing up these files from the ATA site?" I have told you Copy and Paste to your word pad or note pad and save to your documents folder. Copy and Paste is explained in the help section of your computer.

    Tron,
    Changes have been made on the club page info. Passed shoots, are now greyed out, and the year has been added, along with the results for the shoot.

    Does that make it easier ?

    Barry - would you mind reinstating the ATA Hall of Fame link? It's no where to be found on the ATA site. I had to google it to get there.

    By the way, I like the way you have the club's shoots posted now, way better than before. Makes for easier planning when information is current and you don't have to scroll through the old stuff first.

    Thanks very much.

    Barry - I found it. Thanks very much for putting the HOF link back. It's nice that the ATA has a "point" person to assist with web related items. I appreciate the timeliness of the response as well. Thanks again.
