Are they still saying you can qualify for the Classic by shooting Regions??? And when did they "merge"?????

This was posted on AT by NYS REP:

Have received word that an additional class will be added for the Regions event in Warren PA. Semi-Pro Extreme-5 grains per pound no speed limit. $15.00 membership ASA/Regions entry fee, cash payout, no plaque and no qualification for the Classic with that set-up. Their you go, an organization trying to include all shooters and equipment. No reason not to support this event.
