You have to be a member of the ATA to shoot @ an ATA Event ( ATA does not allow a non-ATA member to shoot along with a registered squad ) So with all that said you must shoot at an ATA event so that you amount of Targets can be recorded and your class established...Also to establish your Handicap yardage.

If I'm not mistaken in a "big 50" event, unregistered shooters (non-ATA) are allowed to shoot alonside registered shooters. The ATA members birds will count as registered targets while the non-ATA shooters targets will be just practice.

RHAT- I would suggest that you join the ATA and start shooting events without concern about your classification. Many smaller shoots do not have a penalty. If you go to a larger shoot and do shoot in Class A, 23 yards, it is not a big deal. Just go to have fun and shoot the very best you can. Everything else works out.

Jerry, If you register the big fifty you still have to be classified and belong to the ATA. I believe RHAT ask if he could shoot registered and not enter it into the ATA. The answer is no he can not.

To shoot registered targets you have to join either the ATA or PITA ... I'm not sure if the PITA operates in the Dallas/Ft.Worth area but I'm sure someone on TS.Com will be able to provide that answer ... WPT ... (YAC) ...

WPT, that (PITA birds) would truly be up to local clubs choosing to contact the PITA and arrange to get sanctioning. I don't think there are any in that area at this time. And, you're right, neither association permits unregistered shooters in registered events. I'm really not familiar with the Big 50 program(s) but it sounds like that's the only option for RHAT short of just joining up, start shooting, and have fun like any beginner or returning shooter....breakemall....Bob Dodd

RHAT,

What was your last known yardage??If it was 23 or 24 yards then shooting plenty wouldn't really matter...the boys are right the big 50's are the way to go they are not so called ATA "events" but they are registered targets that will get you a target count however you will earn yardage and class also if the scores are high enough, as the goal is to be the best you can be and not camp out on the close up lines then I suggest you shoot some of these 50's and warm up and then go out and shoot some 100 bird events...to shoot the big 50's you will need to be signed up for the ATA and your state org. Have fun Kym
