As you know, your PITA Executive Committee has been working very hard on the business of this association. With all of the changes brought on by COVID-19, we have had to make some very difficult decisions. This may be the hardest of all:
As of June 1, 2020 we are going to furlough Sue Brewer. This furlough will run through August 31, 2020 when Sue will return to finish out her contract. Sue has been an active and willing part of this negotiation and we thank her for her selfless desire to help the association.
Sue has been a part of the management of this association for 24 years and many of our success can be attributed to her ideas and hard work. We’re going to miss her, and we know you will too, but she’ll be back in September.
In the meantime, please direct all PITA Business to Kay@shootpita.com or to myself at email@example.com.
If you need to get in touch with Sue, please use her personal email address: firstname.lastname@example.org

The PITA Executive Committee has decided that, due to the lack of income and participants, we will not be awarding HOA pins for the Summer Multi-Plex Season. This is a difficult decision, and it may seem like a small expense, but we are in the unenviable position of cutting every expense we can. In addition, many clubs are unable to host a Multi-Plex due to local restrictions. This makes High Over All more like High over Some.
We hope that you continue to participate in and enjoy the Multi-Plex this summer and we hope that this is just a temporary change.
Jennifer Carter, P.I.T.A. President
We’ve had many questions lately, regarding the 2020 All-Star Team criteria. After much discussion, the Executive Committee has decided to leave the criteria alone, with one exception: The Fall Classic is now considered a MAJOR Shoot, for the purposes of All Star Team criteria.
While many states have canceled their State Championships, there are a few: Arizona, British Columbia, Colorado, Hawaii, and Idaho that have had, or are planning to have, their State/Provincial Championship this target year. Washington will make a decision regarding their shoot, this coming Sunday. The Washington State shoot has been cancelled.
For now, these championship events, along with the Fall Classic, will allow people to still get two major shoots in and, as long as they meet the other criteria, work toward the All-Star Team. Good Luck and Good Shooting!

The PITA Executive Committee has decided that we will not have a Grand Pacific in 2020. As I have stated many times, the health and safety of our membership is our No. 1 priority and that was one of the factors that led us to this decision:
· A significant percentage of our membership is in the “at-risk” age group for COVID-19
· As shoots have been canceled, postponed and rescheduled, we see that our clubs are doing everything they can to recoup some of the losses they have experienced this year. The Grand Pacific takes one whole week out of the shoot calendar and we don’t want to take up days that could be used, by clubs, for weekend shoots, and Multiplex.
· The further we get into late summer and early fall, we have hunting seasons and (hopefully) the start of a new school year to contend with. This affects our junior shooters’ ability to attend and the club’s ability to obtain trap help.
· Throwing a Grand Pacific this year, even an abbreviated version, would cost more than we are likely to bring in. Any money we spend holding an event of this caliber, would have to be deducted from what we are able to spend to produce a Grand Pacific in 2021.
This is the first time, since 1945, that the PITA has not held a Grand Pacific and I want to assure you that your PITA Executive Committee did not make this historic decision without careful consideration.
Thank you for your understanding. We all hope to see you out shooting again soon. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me at email@example.com or 503-931-4211.
