Ours has concrete walks.

The concrete guys who put in our two new trap ranges must have never poured one and no one from the club supervised.the positions at the 16 are split where you stand. There is a seam right there.

i'll bet i know why.
so ref's can see if you are splitting the station with your 2 feet, as per ata rules.
theres a rule saying you cant straddle one side of the station.

From the looks of the concrete job it just seems like they poured a curved sidewalk without respect to the use.

I do not see anything about that in the ATA rule book.

ATA Rulebook

Where do you see that?

ok.....finished burning huge stumps and had a hot dog roast on them with the wife in the yard.

here ya go.

Page 30, Section VII, subsection E, point 10.

When firing, the contestant’s feet must be behind the firing mark at 16- yards, or behind the mark for the Handicap yardage assigned to him/ her, depending upon the event being participated in.The contestant must stand with at least one foot on an imaginary line drawn through the center of the trap and continuing through the center of the post, or have one foot on each side of the line. Exceptions to the rule contained in the second sentence of this paragraph may be granted by the referee/ scorer due to inequalities in the shooting platform, and shall be granted for wheelchair contestants.
