The Executive Committee wishes to announce the BRB Voice Release Purchase Program which will provide new BRB Voice Calls to be used at the Grand Pacific.  We are offering 24-wired sets and 3-wireless sets.  The wired sets will be used on the tournament traps, and the wireless sets will be used only on the practice traps.

Wired-sets are being offered for $990 per set (shipping fee included). Wireless sets are being offered for $1630 (shipping fee included). These prices are based on the manufacturer’s 2020 price per set.  If a club were to purchase a set from the manufacturer, based on 2020 manufacturer’s price, a wired-set would be $1175 with shipping, and a wireless-set would be $1875 with shipping.

The BRB Purchase Program offers a great deal with significant savings to clubs purchasing one or more sets.

To place your order or if you have questions, please contact Mike Riggs at riggsconstinc@gmail.com.

Payment will be required to confirm order.

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.
