I went to the ATA Shooter Information Center. There still not updated. The last date shown for Me is Dec 3. Checked out a couple of Friends, they also are stuck on Dec. 3. Anyone else from PA having the same problem ?
Good Luck and God Bless, Bill Ivins
I believe it was Neil who told us that the system was going to be tested this past weekend, and up and running today. So far that hasn't happened, but giving them the benefit of doubt, the day isn't over....yet...lol
I have been shooting registered targets since the fall of 1975. No ATA web site then. I have got along without it for many years.Guess it won't cause me any problems now. I just need to get shooting.hope all are in the south shooting are enjoying them selves. Some of us are thinking of you.Florida & Arizona.it is definately a cold morning in southwestern Ontario. Damn Cold
Here's a fragment from an email I just received. Bit by bit everything people , including NW, hated is being put right and brought up to current IT standards.
"any change made on the ATA database is now live on the web within 60 seconds... Everything BUT shooter info data, still working on that. Test 'er out! Make a small change to a gun club or something and watch it appear on the web! "
The job of updating our IT was finally turned over, lock, stock, and barrel to techpro and there was huge backlog of unaddressed needs. We've now got a new server, SQL 2005, training for our office staff, and a general blowing out of the cobwebs which had accumulated over the years "because it was working" even though updating was so cumbersome doing everything twice that it often never got done. techpro has cut back duplicated work to no more than the temporary pause in the SIC, and that's coming soon.
The first version of SIC will look like the old one, even after you put in your password. Then they've got the All-American point system to automate, and then it's back to the SIC so:
1) After the password (which you will be able to change so you can remember it) is entered
2) You will get a printout that looks like the one from the office: all organized on a page (or more) and no more of that maddening clicking through multiple pages with six scores each as we have to do now.
Believe me, it will have been worth it! Just bear with us a little while more . . .
When it's done we'll all owe a lot of thanks to ATA Marketing, our office staff, and techpro. They've all worked like the devil on this.
