I don't expect it's necessary to say this; but there are events at the Grand where the state teams do compete. Furthermore, making a state team is more than target requirements, and is based upon #'s of targets in three disciplines, shooting prescribed events at state shoots and most importantly, combined averages in all three, generally above 90%. Please don't trivialize those who have accomplished these goals. They've shot well and are to be congratulated.

I made our state team in 2000 and had no idea that I had or what it was! About a week prior to the Grand that year, I received a call from someone at the PSSA (Chuck Fritzges, perhaps) to find out of I would be able to participate in some event during "Grand week." I only went to the Grand for preliminary days and then mainly to shop but it was kind of cool to receive that call even though I was so clueless about the subject.

Making the state team is more than meeting target requirements-true. Unfortunately, the teams have become so watered down by so few shooters shooting those large #'s of targets-especially in categories-that making target requirements have become the major prerequisite. Modifying those requirements lower, especially in these trying times, might make those team category awards more meritorious!!

I agree with oleolliedawg! They have meet the target requirements. I am not saying they are not great shooters. Im just saying that there are also a bunch of great shooters that dont make the team, only because the target requirement is to much.
