Green Bird $5.00 Entry Fee
The prize is calculated by randomly selecting 1 winner for every 6 options selected (i.e. 20 options selected creates a $100 purse; 20/6 = 3 winners; each selection pays $33.33; each entry is one chance to win, each green bird hit is a chance to win; 20 options selected plus 20 hits means that there are 40 entries that could be selected as a winner).
Random selection of winners is done by the scoring software using a database random row selection function.
The purse payout varies by the number of entries.
Per ATA rules you do not have to shoot at the green targets.
Payouts are divided by the number of winning entries.
Scores are posted on monitors throughout the club if/when time permits.
All payouts are done by check. Checks are printed and mailed as soon as it is convenient for the event manager; generally within 7-10 days.
Payout checks are only kept for 6 months. If there is no valid contact information listed with a shooter number the check cannot be mailed and the prize will be forfeited if not picked up at the club during normal business hours within 6 months of the event.
Trap practice is available if scorers are available; 50 bird shooters take precedence.
