             OSTA Champion of Champions Program for 2015 Ohio State Shoot  

The Champion of Champions program is designed to help the smaller clubs get more shooters to participate in ATA registered events. 

Each club that is authorized to hold ATA registered events in the state of Ohio can participate. Each club has the option to hold a Champion of Champions qualifier event. The event must be so noted when making application to hold the shoot. Application for a Champion of Champions initial qualifier must be made 14 calendar days prior to the scheduled event date with the OSTA secretary. Application for a Champion of Champions rescheduled qualifier must be made 7 calendar days prior to the scheduled event date with the OSTA secretary.

Event qualifiers will be held on 100 target programs for singles, doubles, and handicap. The high score and runner-up for each event along with the high score and runner-up by category for Junior, Sub Jr., Lady, Veteran and Senior Veteran will qualify for the Champion of Champions award at the Ohio State Shoot.  Multiple categories if applicable may be declared at qualifying events.

Event winners must have qualifying club name, event, shooter name, ATA number and the type of qualification (Champion, Runner-up, Jr., Sub Jr., Lady, Veteran, Senior Veteran and Runner-ups for all categories ) identified on the shoot report and submitted to the OSTA secretary (incomplete reports will not be accepted)

A minimum of 3 shooters per event is required for the event to be considered a valid qualifier. Multiple qualifiers can be hosted in order to complete the requirements for singles,    doubles, and handicap.

At the Ohio State Shoot, all qualifiers will have their scores recorded for the singles, handicap, and doubles  from  Thursdays event s (June 25th, 2015) shooters who qualify as a champion or runner-up may not fall back to category if they have not qualified for said category. Ties for champion and category will be determined by sub event from first to last. If still tied, a high card draw will determine the winner.

 Shooters may qualify at different clubs for the same or different event/category.  Shooters do not need to be a resident of Ohio to participate in this program.

Any questions about the program should be directed to the Secretary of the OSTA who in turn will document your question and forward to the appropriate OSTA Director for a response.

ATTENTION GUN CLUBS: 

This is the ATA’s list of the shooters who shot for the first time during the 2015 target year at a gun club in Ohio and owe ATA dues.  The ATA has mailed letters to the shooters as well as to each gun club where they first shot. I would appreciate any  assistance in getting these dues paid so they are not deducted from our State rebate check.  If you are able to collect from a shooter, please advise the OSTA secretary (Noreen Snively) ASAP.  
 

Also-1110020 Robert Herner, Norwalk, Ohio $20.00- shot at Fostoria United Sportsmen

The following shooters have unpaid dues from 2013 and 2014 and are prohibited from shooting registered targets in the state of Ohio until they are current.  If a club has paid the dues for the shooter, the club must be reimbursed.  Until the matter is rectified, they should not be allowed to shoot at your gun club.  Please notify the OSTA Secretary ASAP if you are able to collect the past due funds.
