The Grand Pacific had a number of first time accomplishments from 1st 25’s to 1st 300 straights and 1st time reaching the 27 yard line.  All of these were recognized with a patch and/or a pin.  First 100’s, 200’s, 300’s and 27 yard accomplishments are listed in the annual PITA Averages & History Book (a.k.a. Yearbook).  The 2019 Yearbook will also include all the Grand Pacific winners, Rookies and many photos taken during the 2019 year.  Be sure to order your copy when you renew your membership or if you have already renewed just use the renewal form and order just the yearbook.

The 2020 target year will be here soon – starts September 1.  There are a number of shoots at the beginning of the target year so renew your dues early to save time in the registration line.  A table will be set up at the Grand Pacific if you want to renew your 2020 dues there or do it now with our online form.  The 2020 shoot dates are posted on the calendar.

If your club is located in Alaska, Arizona, British Columbia, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Nevada, Oregon or Washington all you need to do is contact your State/Provincial Secretary to request shoot dates.
