Wind flags may be utilized. Shooters must place wind flags in position before match begins. Wind flags cannot be moved or taken down until match is over. If a flag is in a shooter’s line of sight, the Match Director or referee will lay the flag on the ground.
Each target block is worth ten points. The innermost ring counts ten points, the next ring out counts 9 points, and each succeeding ring counts one point less. If a bullet hole touches a line or X, shooter receives the highest point (Best edge scoring). The score (or points lost) is to be written in the block provided in the upper right hand corner of the target square. If a shot is in the target box but misses the largest ring, the score is four (minus 6). If a target is not shot, the score is zero (minus 10). If more than one shot appears in the target square, shooter receives lowest score. Perfect score: 250 and 25X’s.
If the first shot on paper unintentionally hits a record target, shooter must notify Match Director before second shot is fired. Match Director must check target before second shot is fired and make note on target and shooter will not be charged for that shot. Any shot touching the target square’s inside or outside border lines will be counted in that block.
A scoring plug will be used if scorer cannot make visible determination.
In the event of a tie the win will go to the shooter with the most Xs. If a tie still exists, the win will go to the shooter with the highest first miss starting with the target from relay 1. If tie still exists, starting with the target from relay 1 the first X completely plugged out wins if not matched by the other competitor(s).
Points for the annual awards will accumulate based an individuals place in the monthly matches with first place receiving 10 points, second place 9 points, third place 8 points, fourth place 7 points, fifth place 6 points, and all others 5 points. The sum of the individual’s top 7 scores will determine yearly winners. In the event of a tie, the winner will be determined first by the highest number of match wins. If a tie still exists, then annual winners will be determined by the highest monthly raw match scores used in the cumulative score count.
