Attention Virginia Referees

Attention VA Referees and VA shooters wishing to become referees:

Please hold off downloading the NSSA referee exams and referee applications. NSSA is currently working on a decision to have referee credentials last for 3 years, and possibly charge a 3-year fee of $20, like they do with sporting clays referees. This is a slightly higher cost than the current $5 per year we've been paying, but it will be nice to not repeat the exam and application process every year like we do now.

I should have a final answer by Nov 30th, which is also when NSSA plans to have the 2016 referee exams and rulebooks ready for download from their website. I will also have copies of these files on vaskeet.org available for download. Also, according to NSSA, there are very few changes between the 2015 and 2016 referee exams, so because of the change in the length of the skeet season this year, you make take either test, the choice is up to you.  I’ll keep you posted on NSSA’s decision.
