PICK DAY RULES / PROCEDURES
(REVISED AUGUST 26 2016)
Range Owners / Managers
The 2017 Texas
Range(s) Registered Shoot Pick/Draft Day conference call set for:
> AUGUST 30 2016
> Conference Call # 712 775 7300
> Pin # 340802#
The 2016 Pick/Draft Day conference call was
highly efficient. All business concluded
in less than 3 hours – most clubs were off the call in less than 1 and half
hours. Lets achieve the same or better this year!
Why did this happen? - - Answer: Ranges/Clubs
arrived on-time; did their their homework; knew the 100mile Matrix; and,
were fully prepared with their 1st , 2nd , 3rd
date choice(s) selections, had the their shoot names done. They stuck to the sole purpose of the
meeting, and followed the procedures outlined below.
While these procedures are ‘old hat’ to most,
this will be the first Pick/Draft call for several clubs who begin throwing
registered targets in 2016 and/or plan to thrown registered targets in 2017, so
they are worth repeating.
There are 8 (eight) new Ranges as comparted to YE 2015 joining Pick Day(s) –
includes both West and East meetings. Thirty-nine (39), total Ranges are know to be
planning registered shoots 2017. Thank
The process will be same
followed in prior years as follows:
1) Each Range
will called in order of the number of registered targets thrown last year
beginning with the Range having thrown the most registered target in the prior
year (see Attachment for Ranges in Order of Registered Targets
Range’s first selection can be, but does not have to be, a
two-day shoot. If more than one, two-day shoots is desired, each date of
the two-day shoot has to be selected one day at a time (e.g. one day per Pick
in rotation order) (no guarantees this will work)
Attachment for 2016 Calendar for
you to use as a worksheet to track Range date selections as they are made.
major tournaments dates are “grandfathered” for 2016 - e.g. Ables (4th of July
Blast, Browning Briley, Diamond Classic and State Championship).
Each of these tournaments will
count as the host Ranges 1st
pick, and 1st two day pick in the rotation.
Any club which
held a (one registration number) registered tournament in the preceding
calendar year with 200 or more participants may request one date be allotted
(e.g. sometimes referred to as “grandfathering”) to them for the same or
similar tournament in the next year. Any date in the calendar not
currently allotted (grandfathered) can be selected. Two contiguous days
maybe requested. Such request counts as the club’s first pick; and, as
its one allowed two-day pick. Only one request may be made each year.
Annual re-qualification is required. The request must be made at timely
as possible, prior to the annual Pick Day.
2016 TSCA State Tournament is calendared. It does not count as one of the host
100mile rule applies (see Attachment for Ranges within the
100mile Rule Matrix).
7) Each Range
is expected to KNOW all clubs within the 100mile Rule; and,
apply the Rule in advancing their date selection with due regard to prior date
selections by other clubs. The conference call is not the time or
place to seek to determine/discuss who is within 100miles of your club and
whether or not they previously selected a shoot date. Use the 2016
Calendar and take notes.
Range not present on the call when called will be skipped in order of rotation. The meeting, conference call starts promptly
at 6pm. The call line is open early, do
not be late.
West Texas Ranges have held a separate Pick Day selection meeting to avoid
100mile conflicts. Ben McAnally
coordinates that meeting – call him if you have questions. Their results are submitted to the TSCA
Secretary – (Rudy Bazan).
Secretary - Rudy Bazan, is your go-to for this process, submission of all date
requests, providing shoot names. Once the calendar is formalized it will
be submitted as TSCA ‘approved’ to NSCA.
TSCA will attempt to post these shoots on its website - www.txclays.com
approval is part of National process that generally takes place in December to
early January. Historically, all TSCA approved shoots have been accepted by
NSCA, save where the club is NOT in good standing with all NSCA Range dues
paid, up to date.
this process is done, any changes, requests after January 1st MUST be sent
directly to Greg Espenhover TSCA Director to action and approve on behalf of
TSCA. He will forward copies actions taken directly to NSCA.
TSCA approved Range date selections are subject to that Range being in good
standing with the NSCA, with all 2016 Range membership dues paid in full prior
to December 31 2015. In early January 2016, any previously approved shoot
date selections will be cancelled for any Range not in good standing and/or
having paid in full NSCA Range dues by December 31th.
Please advise any errors or omissions in any
attachments. Updated versions will be
sent based on your input.
