    I just pre - squaded on the ATA pre squad site... Very Very Nice experience!!

    except i am 21.5 yards and my buddy is 24 yards. It put us on the same handicap squad.

    So after calling the ATA to tell them there is a mistake.....They just informed me that the rule says a mid yardage shooter can have a 3 yard difference as long as there is a one post difference...

    Dont have my rule book and thought you guys might like to know this!!

    Mid and Long yardage are good with this rule..

    thanks

    Dave I don't think 21.5 is considered mid yard. Earl

    They are correct. The rule is max 3 yard difference on the squad, and max 2 yard difference between posts. Doesn't apply to 18-19-20 yard shooters.

    If the 21.5 yarder is next to the 24 yarder its 3 yards difference. How does that work since they are not a 2 yard difference between posts? I guess they can't shoot like that or just DUk lol
