Hi,

I was just wondering how to get into the ASC... Is it have to do with college or just straight skill?
I would love to know this

It's skill. You have to shoot for a while and do good enough stuff that the existing members invite you to join. It's a private club, the best way to get in is to know some of the members.

And one of the best ways to get to know such members is to really excel at what you do. You have to earn your way there IMHO, though of course I'm not and who knows, probably never will be "there."

When I first got to town, I knocked on the door and asked to join. Apparently you have to have a body of significant work and money.

It's an honorary society, membership by invitation. You need three ASC members to write letters of recommendation, after which you go through a review process and a membership vote.
