At the requests from a number of shooters wanting to shoot more doubles, the Executive Committee is happy to announce the PITA Doubles Challenge (PDC) a 500-target doubles marathon; a shooter may shoot up to 500 doubles targets at a club hosting a PDC event. The PDC Finale take place at the Grand Pacific. The kick off date for the PDC is February 1, 2021. Informational material has been sent to all PITA clubs.

The PDC is not mandatory; decision to host a PDC event is a club decision. PDC events may be offered as a stand-alone event or it may be offered in conjunction with a state/province doubles league/marathon. ATA Cross-Registration may be offered as a club option, club and is responsible for submitting forms and payments due. For details on the PDC, click here.

The Executive Committee hopes you will enjoy participating in the PDC events.

The results are posted for January.  They are now final.  Congratulations to all the winners!

Other stats:

  • Seven shooters shot 49/50 in handicap earning 1/2 yard.
  • 429 shooters participated at 31 clubs.

  • Jason Nelson & Gerald Matys tied for High Over All with 144/150.


PITA Members,

As we look forward to a new (and hopefully improved) target year, we may still be faced with residual effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. The PITA EC is preparing for a continued slow-down in service from some of our regular vendors, especially those businesses located in states/provinces with strict COVID-19 mandates.

With that in mind and to better serve the PITA membership, if you envision reaching a milestone during the 2021 target year, please notify the PITA office as soon as possible so that we can work with the vendor to estimate the necessary lead time for ordering and receiving your award in a timely manner.

Your understanding and patience is appreciated.

Scores and results are posted and final.  Payout checks for the Fall Season will be mailed soon so watch your mailbox and please cash/deposit your check when you receive it.  This helps in the accounting department.  If your PITA dues are not current or you earned over $600 this year your check may be held – contact Kay at 208-312-0314 for more details.

The PITA Hall of Fame committee has announced the 2021 selection for induction is Liz Harris of Boise, Idaho.  Liz over the past 30 plus years has served as an official for the Idaho PITA and an un-official representative at the PITA executive level.  As a champion shooter she has won over 40 State and PITA titles including two-time Grand Pacific Lady Champion of Champions and out of state titles in Nevada and Oregon.  Behind the line she has been active as well organizing events for non-shooters and money raising events for clubs. With her partner and husband Kent have won too many two-in-family awards to count.  Kent is very lucky to have Liz as his partner.  Liz is the first lady to achieve 100,000 targets in Idaho.

The 2021 Induction will be held at the Grand Pacific in July at the Evergreen Sportsmen’s Club.  It will also honor the 2020 inductees, Dave Wade and Leo Pike, from Canada since we did not have a 2020 Grand due to the pandemic.  Please join us in honoring these inductees.

Bob Kennedy, HOF President
