Selection of the All Star Teams is based on shooters’ ability as evidenced by his/her averages. The average is computed by dividing the sum of the singles average, handicap average and doubles average by three (3).

  1. Shooter must shoot at six (6) different clubs, PITA sanctioned events. Target requirements at each club: 100 Singles, 100 handicaps and 50 pair doubles. Targets must be shot during the same calendared-event. Exception: See major shoot target requirement.
  2. Shooter must shoot a minimum of three (3) major shoots.
    1. Major shoots are State and Provincial Championship Tournaments, the Western Canadian Championships, the Canadian Championships (when held in BC as a PITA shoot), the Grand Pacific, and the Fall Classic.
      1. Target requirement: High All Around events (200 Championship Singles, 100 Championship Handicap and 50 pair Championship Doubles).
    2. In the event that a major shoot event occurs at a club that a shooter may have previously registered targets at during the target year, the club(s) hosting these major events may be counted twice. 
  1. Cross-registered targets shot at an ATA sanctioned event, and submitted to the PITA, will count as targets shot; the club hosting the ATA event will not be counted in the six-club requirement.
  2. Registered fifty (50) bird events. Targets shot will count. The club will not be counted since the event does not meet the target requirement of 100 singles, 100 handicaps and 50 pair doubles.
    1. Shooting two (2) Multiplex events at the same club, either on the same day or twice during the same season (fall, winter or summer) will not count as having met the club target requirement.
    2. Shooting registered fifty-target events on consecutive days at a club will not count as having met the club target requirement.

Team placement will be determined as follows:

  1. All shooters not awarded a spot on the “top five” team shall be eligible for All Star Teams in any category for which he/she may be eligible; these being both gender and age related.
    1. To be eligible for the Top Five Team, a shooter in an age and/or a gender category, must have shot the required number of targets in order to be placed on the Top Five Team.
  1. In the case of being eligible for two teams (these being gender and age categories), the shooter, having met the target requirements for both teams, shall be awarded a position on one team only, determined by whichever team he/she placed highest. In case the shooter qualifies for two teams at the same position, he/she shall be awarded the position in the age-related category.

After some discussion concerning the upcoming Multiplex  season the following revisions have been approved by the Executive Board.

We will return to scheduling Multiplex events during the first full week of the month.  As scheduling conflicts arise for your club, please feel free to contact us (info@shootpita.com) to request exceptions.  Conflicts may include state and local rules about the current health crisis, a scheduled registered shoot on that weekend and no way to host a Multiplex during the week or a natural disaster such as fires/flooding, etc.

Clubs will no longer be able to link or use the Multiplex as an option during a calendar shoot.  This practice has led to many problems.  Multiplex events must be held separately and on different days from program events/shoots.

All paperwork and fees must be submitted in a timely manner (Rule Book, page 7). This has been a serious source of irritation from the beginning.  It causes the office to not be able to get results posted and scores recorded in the shooter data base in a timely manner effecting fellow shooters.

We will be returning to the practice of providing HOA awards starting at the Fall 2020 season.

Any questions concerning cashiering can be posed to Sue Brewer (sjbrewer40@gmail.com ), scheduling to Kay Klundt (info@shootpita.com) or general questions to Billy Myers (bydnsilly@hotmail.com ).  Thank you and good shooting.

The Summer Multiplex was a great success thanks to the clubs and shooters that participated.  At the start none of us were sure what would happen with the COVID19 crisis and regulations imposed on clubs.   Thirty-four clubs participated with August events hosting 404 shooters.  The four month season saw 1,367 entries with 181,450 targets thrown.

 

Congratulations to the the HOA winners:

High Over All – Jason Nelson – 574/600

BC – Dale Kapeluck – 541/600

CA – Billy Myers – 550/600

ID – Clay Brown – 564/600

NV – Matt Coffin – 561/600

OR – Krys Schindler – 556/600

WA – Jason Nieman – 542/600

 

Thanks to all that participated – we hope to see your scores during the Fall Season (Sept 6-13 -Oct 4-11 -Nov 1-8 -Dec 6-13).
