Because of the pandemic, many shoots have been either postponed or cancelled. For us in New York, we had to reschedule the Empire Grand American. The Empire Grand will now be held from Monday, July 20, 2020 to Wednesday, July 22, 2020. On Monday, the events will be the singles class championship, the preliminary handicap championship, and the doubles class championship. On Tuesday the event will be the singles championship. Finally, on Wednesday, the events will be the doubles championship and the handicap championship. We had to cancel the six original events that were going to make up the first two days of the Empire Grand. Right after the Empire Grand American, we in New York will roll into the ATA Eastern Zone Championship. The dates will be Thursday, July 23, 2020 to Sunday, July 26, 2020. The only change in the events are that the preliminary events that were originally scheduled for Wednesday, July 22, 2020 have been cancelled due to the rescheduling of the Empire Grand American. The events starting on Thursday through the end of Eastern Zone on Sunday will be the same as normal. Please keep up with our New York State ATA web page for listings of ATA shoots that are taking place and cancelations. Cathy Flint, our State Secretary, does a tremendous job of keeping the web page up to date and adding shoot information.
